GHENT RIVER Hotel ****

Availability is being checked, please wait for response ...

Ghent River Hotel is situated on the right bank of the Leie, which is 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 come across a small square which is served as thread (yarn) market in the Middle Ages and the 19th century. Next to the hotel we meet one of the typical medieval “waterstraatjes”. After a few minutes walk, you meet the ‘vrijdagsmarkt’ with the statue of Jacob van Artevelde.

The personalised rooms are provided with all modern facilities: Individual adjustable heating, radio, cable TV with remote control, direct dial telephone, connectable modem , mini-bar and complete equipped bathroom with fan. You will surprisingly feel at home in the warm and charming colours.

The Ghent-River Hotel has also created a cosy bar for you. Stop by and try some local and national drinks!

Every breakfast spoils you with a rich and varied buffet from 7am till 10am.
