A selection of reviews from last year

“Vincent flat is on 3 floors – living room/ Lounge kitchen then shower/ toilet outside terrace and the top floor is the bedroom. The space is very spacious and cozy with some beautiful decorations. It's perfect for a short weekend in Ghent. The main staircase is amazing made of beautiful Wood the flat is warm and very welcoming. Vincent was a great host”


“This truly is a magical place! If you're looking for something different, something exiting, something inspirational and something terribly beautiful then please don't hesitate to book this place. Everything has been thought about carefully. The sound system was probably my favorite attribute to this place. The acoustics in the house were just amazing! Even Vincent's playlist was a real treat to listen to! This house has everything you need and so much more. Although right in the middle of town, you'll be surprised by the serenity of this place. I can go on and on about this stunning airbnb and about Vincent who was the absolute best host, but im gonna stop here and just say.. be prepared to be amazed and enjoy!”


“This place is the opposite of getting catfished. A truly amazing and beautiful escape with so much care for detail and charm”


“Stunning place, perfect location and great host. This place is amazing!!!”


“Loft by Vincent is a unique place. Peaceful and beautifully designed. An oasis of peace in the city center.”


“Vincent's Airbnb was even better than expected. The house is charming and full of character, a very unique experience. Highly recommended for a cozy weekend away in the middle of beautiful Ghent city centre.”


“Amazing house, perfectly located in the center of Ghent! I definitely recommend this place and will come back for other occasions.”


“A really lovely, restful hideaway in the perfect location.”


“Highly, highly recommend! Besides all the objectively amazing features of this place (amazing location & all utilities present) we were blown away by the actual experience of this stay. Every tiny little detail is taken care of and caries a story. We had a truly wonderful stay thanks to a very thoughtful host Vincent.”


“This unique place is probably the most unique Airbnb we visited in years. In the very center of Ghent you'll feel like in a peaceful Asian style house. Very stylish, full of details, wood and proper stone and unique floor in the main room to discover !!! Each object tells its own story. There light was nice in early automn morning. I particularly love the helicoidal type stairs. Our host was helpful helping us to park nearby and access by car to the center town.”


“We had an amazing stay in this architecturally beautiful space. With it's mindful touches and serene atmosphere, we both felt very relaxed. Highly Recommended for a chilled stay in gorgeous Ghent!”


“Vincent's apartment is an experience in itself, unconventional, stylish and has everything you need to relax and unwind. I enjoyed using their yoga mat for my morning practice, with a view to the lovely terrace and listen to music on the sound system. The kitchen is small, but has everything you need to cook a breakfast or a light dinner. My host, Vincent, was kind enough to take me to the airport in Eindhoven, so I had a personal driver and a pleasant conversation as well.”


“Very clean and cozy apartment!”


“At the very center of Ghent, a very nice place with the best vibes to visit the city. Vincent is a perfect host. A very good place to rest. Bed is very comfortable. Trendy Airbnb! 100% recommended. You can even listen to music from a very good vintage hi-fi system!”


“This is a special place with tons of unique design elements. It's on three floors: the living on the ground floor, the toilet on the second (with an outdoor terrace and yoga mat/zen meditation pillow) and a bedroom on the top, loft floor. Vincent is an enthusiastic and helpful host. If you are into unusual and high-end teas and coffee, he has you covered. We had our 6-month old baby with us so the 3-floor set up was a challenge. I wouldn't recommend it for new parents but it would be restful and fun as a single person or a couple. The location is dynamite because it's in the middle of the historic center but on a quaint side street.”


“Fantastic apartment, extremely good value and excellent host! We were wowed the minute we walked up the spiral staircase-the pictures do not do it justice! We loved our stay in beautiful Ghent, having traveled from Amsterdam to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Vincent was informative, helpful and friendly-highly recommend the cocktails at his bar round the corner :))”


“Beautiful apartment with a very special and nice design. Perfect located – we could explore Gent by Feet. The communication with Vincent was perfect, we got very good recommendations to explore nice places and restaurants. Don‘t miss to visit him at his cocktail-bar Flagent – best cocktails ever with love for detail and ambiente (like the apartment) 🙂 We had a wonderful time in Gent and will come back!”


“WOW! What a place, we were blown away when we walked into this place, beautifully designed and the little touches made our stay very special. We had our 3 year old son with us. Although its not the perfect stay for kids due to all the beautiful ornaments, we had no problems and he loved the little single bed next to ours that is tucked away like a den. The location was fantastic and Vincent is a true host, he made us feel very very welcome and provided lots of local advice, he also makes great drinks!”


“Shelter 7 will very likely be the most beautiful airbnb we ever stay in. Design on point but still cozy is a rare combination to find. It's located in the very center of the historic city but still the only things you hear from of the city is the wonderful bells from church. We really found relaxation in this apartment. Plus Vincent is a nice host who makes your stay as smooth as possible.”


“We booked this place for the speakers of an event we're organising. The communication with Vincent was super-smooth and he was very flexible. Our speakers were very impressed with the B&B and Vincent's hospitality.”


“Vincent's charm and hospitality warmed our hearts! He was very generous with his time when showing us around his apartment which is top quality and very comfortable. The flat itself is a beautiful tranquil space with well thoughtout lighting within the unique architecture of the building. Don't fear about this bed not being comfortable – it's insanely so! We can't fault anything about our stay in Shelter 7, we loved it. Thank you Vincent”


“The apartment is bigger than it looks in the pics, though be aware that the single bed has very reduced head height. It's a great relaxing space and perfect to chill in, shame the weather was a bit chilly for the terrace! The location is central which is great and Vincent is a very attentive host.”


“Shelter 7 is well located and right in the center of Ghent. The place is cozy, well decorated and clean. Vincent was very friendly and helpful.”


“I can only recommend this place to stay while in Ghent. Not only Vincent was a great host and took a great deal to make sure I was comfortable and feeling at home, but the place is outstanding and put together with great thought and care. The apartment is at the heart of Ghent and at walking distance of key locations, and surrounded by great spots for food and drinks. Vincent also offers mediation experiences which I will surely book next time i am back. Thanks again!”


“Exactement ce qu'on recherche quand on part de chez nous : authenticité , propreté et dépaysement. On a adore la gentillesse et le goût de décoration de Vincent. On reviendra for sur!!”


“Merveilleux havre de paix and square center de Gand. Accueil généreux et attentionné. Petite terrasse embaumée du parfum de glycine. On recommande chaudement!!”

“hôte très sympathique et flexible, endroit assez unique”


“Highly recommended for those looking for a relaxing experience in the center of Ghent!”


“Great place in a great location. Vincent provided a nice reception, which immediately started the weekend well. The floor in the bedroom takes some getting used to, but that does not detract from the atmosphere in the shelter.”



“Unique accommodation in the heart of Ghent. We had a great time!”


“Great hospitality in B&B Shelter 7. A fantastic building in the middle of the city of Ghent. Very stylishly furnished and equipped with nice reading spots. We found the remote control for the mood lighting in all rooms and the music system really added value. We immediately felt at home. The cold-brewed tea, the music, the floor in the bedroom; all fun and groundbreaking discoveries. Tip, be sure to visit Vincent's cocktail bar 'Flagent', a 5-minute walk from the B&B, with a nice view of the water, tasty snacks and delicious cocktails with a twist.”


“An absolute must this apartment in the heart of Ghent! On arrival we were welcomed by Vincent and a homemade cold brew. This was followed by an extensive tour of the house that looked really fantastic. It is equipped with a few cozy sitting areas, a lovely balcony and a unique bedroom. When we stayed there it was very hot (perhaps the hottest day of the year) and since we stayed on the attic floor and there was little wind, this was actually impossible. Vincent had been so thoughtful as to install a fan, but even with that it remained a very warm night. This is something to take into account when booking… Nothing but praise for the apartment and the host, we are very pleased with our stay.”


“Very much enjoyed this stylish and quiet apartment!”


“Hermoso con un estilo impecable y en pleno centro histórico de Gent”
