"A serene place..." Monasterium Poortackere Tip by steedappeal

Monasterium Poortackere, Gent: 289 reviews and 16 photos


As a hospitality professional, I like to tour hotels- especially ones that I had originally intended to stay. This has a very special atmosphere. It is not as large as their website would have you believe. I toured the most basic hostel single and it was bare bones but very clean looking. The most stunning section- the former chapel- is used mainly for private events. The breakfast room is a bit less dramatic. This is a little more of a walk into the heart of the city. Would recommend for a second visit unless one needed to be closer to the student area.

Unique Qualities: The former chapel. The overall ambiance.
