To explore historic Ghent in a comfortable way, you might want to consider a stay at the Van der Valk Hotel. The family-run hotel offers a three-for-two-days package deal, including an extensive breakfast buffet with hot and cold dishes and a breakfast chef who will cook your eggs to preference and perfection.
“We have strong environmental principles,” says Naomi Quist, Van der Valk Hotel’s marketing and communication coordinator. “We offer visitors use of our rental e-bikes, e-choppers and e-steps, which are fun and sustainable transport options to make the small hop to the city centre.”
After touring the city, you can relax at the hotel’s spa or do a workout at their gym. There’s also the option of dining at Restaurant Cocotte, which offers classic Belgian and European cuisine. Alternatively, make your way to the tenth floor to sky bar Mr Sato, for authentic Asian sharing dishes. After your meal, it’s a treat to end the evening with a cocktail on the roof terrace.
Van der Valk Hotel Ghent opened in 2021 and mirrors the Ghelamco Football Arena opposite, with its reflective blue glass and rounded shape. The hotel is well suited to business travellers as it is easily accessible from the E4 and E17 motorways. “On special days, such as ‘Compliment Day’ or at Easter, we show our personal touch by leaving a small token in your room,” says Quist. Staying at this modern, four-star hotel is set to make a visit to Ghent even more enjoyable.
