3) 1898 The Post

A striking boutique hotel opened in 2017 in the upper floors of the former central post office. The 38 rooms are decorated in a warm style evoking the building’s late 19th-century architecture, with high ceilings and antique furniture. Located in the heart of Ghent, the hotel offers its guests some of the best views in the city and has a stylish cocktail bar which might soon become the most fashionable hang-out in town.

4) Villa Emma

This elegant B&B is located in a beautiful art nouveau villa from 1909 in a quiet suburban street. The guest rooms are very spacious with period furniture, comfortable sitting areas and rain showers. Owners Hilde and Georges serve a generous breakfast featuring homemade bread and local products. But the most intriguing element is the garden where they have lovingly planted all 76 flowers and plants identified by botanists in The Ghent Altarpiece.
