The Boatel

Voorhoutkaai 44, Gent, B9000, Belgium

Get a different perspective on Gent by staying aboard this 1953 riverboat, docked on the Leie since Portus Ganda opened. A recent two-year refurbishment has yielded impressive results. Cabins are large and bright, with bathtubs available in rooms on the upper floor. The wood-floored, sunny breakfast room also doubles as the evening gathering spot. Free parking is available on the road nearby. Even though it's tightly anchored to the shore, the boat does tend to rock a bit.

PROS

  • a taste of canal life
  • roomy cabins won't make you claustrophobic

CONS

  • reception not open 24 hours
  • a walk from the center
