B&B near Sint-Pieter's Railway station - safe area?

by Andzelika Online Now Sep 1, 2008 at 9:41 AM

Hello everyone :)
I might be travelling to Belgium in mid November (one week trip). Decided to visit Bruges, Antwerpen, Brussels and, of course, Gent. Also decided to stay most of the nights in Gent and travel by train to other, above mentioned places (except Brussels, will move there for 2 last nights). Therefore would like to stay in a B&B near the railway station. At the same time, I am bit afraid whether the area is safe? I consider the following guesthouses: Chambre Eau - Lindenlei 17; Verlaet- Ijzerlaan 11; Laurent Delvaux -Laurent Delvauxstraat 15; Four Corners - Abdisstraat 8. Any suggestions? Will appreciate any help....

    Hi, stopped at "Four Corners" about 18 months ago. A 10 min walk to the rail station or a tram stop is very close by. A very friendly and comfortable b&b, no problems with the location either.
    enjoy!

    Don't worry about the area, this is very safe. I would just avoid walking in the citadelpark at night.
    Have a nice time in Ghent!
