“Perfect Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2013

Locationwise it definetely doesn't get much better in Ghent, walk out the "back-door" and you're right in the center of Ghent, right on one of the canal, with restaurant right and left of you, and a perfect view of the old houses along the Canal, and try also to go behind the houses of the canal, and remember to bring a camera with plente of space on the memorycard.
Marriott Ghent Hotel, is pretty much a standard Marriott Hotel, upper 4 star quality, nice beds, good size rooms and bathrooms, I did however miss a seperate shower, so you would not have to stand in the bathtub to have a shower.
Breakfast was OK but nothing special.
This hotel is all about the location and that is perfect.
would definetely go here again

Beautiful building. The room I stayed in looked out over the canal and gorgeous view of Ghent. Without any cars, keeping the windows open at night was a treat as the groups of singing, giggling people passed by. I was grateful for the close proximity to the pubs having injured my foot. Good reason to hobbled over and have a pint or three with my sis and meet the people!! Coming from Paris, it was a relief to be treated so well, the employees are very, very kind and helpful.

I only stayed here for one night but it was a great stay. The hotel is perfectly located on the canal so you can get anywhere you want to in ghent. The town is a nice place to relax with plenty of bars, restaurants and bakeries. The boat cruise was entertaining, more for the guide than the sights. You can get a boat from right outside the hotel. Our room was spacious and clean and the service from staff was very good. The half price drinks in the bar from 5-7 on a Friday night makes for a very good deal. Although the promise of a buffet is a little misleading - we were offered a couple of snacks from a waiter that carried around a couple of trays. There are some nice restaurants across the road from the hotel offering typical Belgian cuisine.

Location was perfect. We chose a river view room which was a good choice also. The room was spacious and comfortable.The staff was helpfull. There were only two negative things ı could say about this beautiful hotel. One is the breakfast in the breakfast room was very expensive, so we preferred to have breakfast from the room service which was cheaper.And two,one of the coffee mugs in the room was broken on the first day.The cleaning lady washed it and put it back instead of replacing it with an unbroken one.

Room Tip: Choose a river view room

Excellent hotel in the centre of Gent, you can't get more central then this. The hotel has an exit onto the Korenlei!
Early check in was no problem, hotel staff were very helpful, without exception.
Rooms with standard clean facilities, excellent airco.
We will definitely be staying in this hotel again when we return to Gent.

What a great location - you step out the door and are in the middle of Ghent - everything is in walking distance - just a few meters and you can sit next to the canal (if the sun is shining).

The hotel is up to the standard you would expect from a Marriott - good bed, good breakfast buffet, nice bathroom.

We stayed here for one night, in a corner suite on the second floor.
The large interior was clean but not modern (yellow carpet and sofa, blue chairs, wooden paneling...).
The bathroom was spacious and very clean.
Staff were very friendly and helpful.
Breakfast was outstanding! Almost everything you can imagine, was available.
Perfect location to explore the city!

Room Tip: If you want a nice view, ask for a room at the side of the 'Korenlei'.
