1898 The Post is a new luxury hotel by the Zannier Group, in the Belgian city of Ghent. Housed in what used to be a grand Post Office, the hotel has its own 54-metre clock tower. The Neo-Gothic building with its with statues and escutcheons, was constructed in 1898 by the architect Louis Cloquet.

The building ceased to be a post office in 2001, and now hosts a shopping centre as well as the newly opened hotel. The hotel spans two of the building's floors, with 38 contemporary rooms designed by Geraldine Dohogne.

There is a deep, dusky green on the walls of the suites, which are filled authentic antique furniture covered in linen; octagonal marble bathroom tiles and dark brass bathroom fixtures add to the sense of cosiness, making each room feel like a warm cocoon. A cosy sitting room with a fireplace and an exclusive cocktail bar also add to the sense of tranquility and comfort.
