Ghent River Hotel is situated on the right bank of the Leie, which has beaconed the Ghent boarder between the 11th and 15th century. Thanks to the ancient pier, Ghent River Hotel is the only hotel that can be reached by boat. The site encompasses 2 buildings: a renaissance house, dated 1518 and a rice-mill built on a burnt down sugar refinery, dated 1857. The building also served as a cotton spinning-mill (1873), a warehouse (1879) and a steam actuated bakery (1892). The latter expanded several times until 1909. In front of the hotel you will come across a small square which is served as thread (yarn) market in the Middle Ages and the 19th century. Next to the hotel you can observe one of the typical medieval "waterstraatjes". After a few minutes walk, you meet the 'vrijdagsmarkt' with the statue of Jacob van Artevelde (The 'vrijdagsmarkt', one of the biggest squares in Ghent, lies only a couple of meters away and is the home of the famous statue of Jacob Van Artevelde. Breakfast is excluded from the rate and 21,00 euros per person per day Openingtimes breakfast room 6h30 " 10h00 during the week 7u00 " 11u00 during the weekend

Excellent hotel at the right location

Great Hotel for a stay in a dynamic town. We happened to be in town on a week end that was full of street festivities. The hotel is clean as a whistle. It is modern and also forms part of an older complex. Our room had exposed beam ceilings about 12 feet high. Extremely comfortable and clean room for a good night sleep. the Bathroom was immaculate. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Ghent River Hotel, October, 2009

I generally like the hotel. Small and well situated in the center of Gent. My room was small, but still big compared to some of the NYC hotel rooms I have tried. The breakfast was included. If I had paid for the breakfast I would have been disappointed about the quality, but when included in the competitive price (117USD / 8 Euro), I found it okay. On the bad side: 5Euro for 1h of Internet, 20Euro for 24h! Over all: a thumbs up, and for the price I would likely go there again. But it puzzles me, how this hotel can have 4*.
