I recently stayed here with my family and it was wonderful from the get go. The staff were so friendly and our room was absolutely fabulous. With the wooden beams and brick walls in the room exposed it was a truly authentic feel to the place and looked right out onto the river. The room for 3 people was so... More

Our room was ok but hardly luxury and the receptionists were rather laid back when it came to service; they were more busy tapping on the computer and we always had to wait "just a minute". The cleaning was also rather haphazard and we got the impression that the hotel was a little understaffed. I've never had to go to... More

We booked here for a short weekend break. The location is good and everything in Ghent was easy to get to from here. The room was comfortable and clean and a good size. And, the reception staff were uniformly helpful and pleasant. We liked the outdoor terrace - we had a drink from the bar (manned by the night reception... More

Very nice hotel. The view from the room is wonderful as you can see the canal and see the boats doing canal tours. There was free wifi and the bed was very comfy. Ceiling was unique with wooden beams. Breakfast was very good. 3 mins walk to the city centre and a very nice walk by the riverside with cafes... More

Rooms are very comfortable and include all the necessary and more, although the wifi isn't always accessible in every room. Nice terrace for a late night drink. Well located for visiting everything on foot.

The Ghent River Hotel is a very unique hotel with lots of charm. After last-minute travel changes, I booked a room at the hotel the night before check-in. Despite the last-minute booking (or perhaps because of it), I got a great deal on a very nice room. I ended up paying about $85 for a large double right next to... More

First impressions mean a lot and we didn't get off to a very good start. On arrival we went to check in and were told the room wasn't ready, so we asked to leave our luggage. The girl on reception spoke fabulous English (as did all the hotel staff - I am slightly embarrassed being British in this respect!) however,... More
