Positive Reviews

Ghent centrality, quiet area.

Although guests found Monasterium Poortackere to be well-placed to explore the gorgeous city of Ghent by foot, the area itself proved to be nice and quiet, and conveniently, had some provision for parking.

Large, clean and peaceful quarters.

Those who stayed found their rooms to be simple, but very large, clean and peaceful, and unexpectedly, with a good standard of Wi-Fi.

Nice continental breakfast, kind staff.

The continental breakfasts on offer were found to be of a good quality by those who dined in, while the kind and friendly staff members were found to be lovely by one and all.

Negative Reviews

Decor tired in places.

As you may expect from such an establishment as Monasterium Poortackere, the decor shows signs of wear and tear in parts, and the furniture was also found to be dated bý some, with a few guests not finding the beds and linen to be in good shape. Despite this, most people considered everything to be kept in good condition considering the age and thought it was perfectly fine as long as you do not expect modern luxury.

Breakfast and parking prices.

A small number of those who stayed found both the parking charge and the cost of breakfasts too expensive for their liking, and for the latter, mentioned they were able to eat out for cheaper.
