1898 The Post in brief


Hotel 5* 1898 The Post is a beautifully renovated boutique hotel with 38 rooms and suites. You are in the heart of the historic district of Ghent, Flanders, Belgium. Behind the neo-gothic façade in natural stone, discover an elegant 1900's style decoration and a fantastic Harry Potter atmosphere. Watch this video on Youtube to get an idea.

You can check availability for 1898 The Post or discover other romantic hotels in Ghent and throughout Flanders at our partner Booking.

Since 2022, the hotel has been included in the top 500 best hotels in the world. This ranking appears in the prestigious American magazine Travel+Leisure. Each year, nearly 8 million readers vote. A well-deserved reward when you discover the hotel.

Because yes, to enter the hotel is to find yourself in another era! What we love here: the sloping ceilings, the old wooden floors, the marble bathrooms, the authentic skylights, the period furniture evoking the glorious era of the post offices of yesteryear, the linen sofas and the turret with a 360° view of the historic center of Ghent.

The staff is very attentive and speaks several languages: Dutch, French, English and Spanish.

Each of the 38 rooms is unique and tells its own story. Depending on your choice, you will have the following amenities: high ceilings, large windows, subtle indirect light, antique furniture, private terrace, king size bedding, private white marble bathroom, Belgian cotton sheets, wool curtains and a breathtaking view of Ghent.

On the first floor, The Kitchen invites you to start your day with a delicious homemade American buffet breakfast. The open fire in this common area creates a warm atmosphere, ideal for relaxing or quiet conversation.

During the day or in the evening, head to The Cobbler bar for a drink or a bite to eat. It is without doubt one of the most romantic and elegant places in the city. The atmosphere is chic, refined and truly magical. Don't miss the signature cocktails.

The hotel is located across the river Lys, in the heart of Ghent, Flanders, Belgium. Romantic, historical, gastronomic and festive, Ghent has many architectural treasures to discover. The historic heart of this former cloth-making city, in particular, is a real gem.
