Great location100% of recent guests gave this home’s location a 5-star rating.

The Minster House used to be the place where servants from the bishop of Ghent lived. It is small historic house, but renewed and completely furnished. The place is at some 40 m from the Bishop's palace, which itself is adjacent to the St Bavo's Cathedral. This cannot be more in the middle of the historic center of Ghent. The street is pedestrian only and very quit. The house is close to restaurants and dining. The kitchen is fully equipped. Breakfast is not supplied as standard.

This place is awesome! It is in a wonderful location, and you can easily walk around the historic downtown area from here. Michael and Wim are extremely responsive, and were wonderful hosts. They even left some local beer for us to try when we checked in!

Wonderful place in a quiet street right in the center of Gent. The house is old but clean, cosy and it feels just like home. It is a great mix of old and modern. Building is made mostly out of wood which gives it a special charm. Stairs can be a bit tricky if you aren't used to s…
