An enchanting and historic hideaway in the heart of Ghent.
Staying at Zannier Hotels 1898 The Post in the heart of Ghent, you immediately feel a return to the “Beautiful Age” of travel. Occupying a century-old post office originally designed by architect Louis Cloquet, each artfully curated space unites past and present; places in which you can ponder, experience or be inspired.
Rooms are named according to their size – Stamp, Letter, Carriage, Tower and Loft – all with the old-world feel of dark green hues, soft lighting, antique writing desks, curious treasures carrying stories of faraway lands and a selection of early 20th century postcards to pen your own memories.
The hotel’s bar, The Cobbler, continues the warm, charismatic atmosphere with world-class cocktails served to ragtime beats. Relax, work or enjoy afternoon tea in The Kitchen, with an open fireplace and views of Ghent’s endless spires. During the summertime, The Terrace opens with spectacular views directly overlooking the River Lys.
Set with Saint Nicholas’ Church on one side and the historic port of Graslei on the other, 1898 The Post is your own private doorway to experience medieval Ghent. Take a guided tour to explore the city’s street art scene, learn how to make the hotel’s signature ‘Cherry Cobbler’ cocktail or experience the hidden gems by bicycle or by river boat.
For business guests, the hotel also has a meeting room and is one-hour from Brussels.
