This must have been the 4th or 5th time we've been staying in Ghent River Hotel... A very central location, stylish clean rooms, comfortable beds, friendly staff and breakfast buffet with a wide variety of choices. We're loving it and we will definitely come back again.

The stay was sandwiched between visits to Bruges (Academie Hotel) and Brussels (Pullman Brussels Midi Hotel).

This centrally located hotel was perfect to visit the Christmas markets and the nearby sights. Great bars and restaurants within walking distance. Clean and safe with great service. Look forward to returning soon.
