Sleeps 3 and perfect location
This was one of the few hotels where we could sleep 3. It was in an excellent location - everything was within walking distance. It was clean. A little run down, but this is Europe! Recommend

Value for money
Generally a very favourable experience. Good location, good breakfast in interesting restaurant. Rooms small but adequate. Only disadvantage was the inadequate sound insulation between the rooms and noisy neighbours.

Ghent River Hotel, Ghent
Good location but the room smelled horribly
A Traveler, usTrip with friends
Ghent River Hotel, Ghent
We were put in a VERY NOISY ROOM because of children playing outside. The hotel was kind enough to upgrade us to a quiet Junior Suite with a lovely canal view! Super service.
