Before my visit to Ghent I booked my hotel via the site of Bookings. It's easy; you don't pay anything in advance...just pay the hotel when you leave. And they have many beautiful hotels in Ghent. Overview hotels
Carriage trip They can only be made from April till October. You'll find them at the Sint-Baafs square and the trip takes about 30 minutes. It leads you through the ancient heart of the city.
Ghent by night Almost every building and monument is illuminated each night. I can advise you to take an evening walk (maybe after you had dinner) through the heart of the city. When we were outside, it just stopped raining. Because of the reflection, the raindrops that stayed behind made it even more beautiful.
Boat trip I Another way to discover Ghent is over water. Several boat companies take you through the canals, rivers and waters of Ghent and the captain/guide tells you all about the history, buildings and monuments there is to know. You can choose from several excursions. You will find them along the Korenlei and Graslei.
