  • We park here a lot. It's an acceptable garage near to lots of great places to eat and shop and be entertained. The parking rate is normal...not cheap, but not crazy expensive. Often the stairwells smell like pee. When it's really busy (like during Gentsefeesten) you can get stuck for a long time. Not all the sensors work correctly, so if it says there are five spaces left on a level, there probably aren't any. Generally feels safe.
  • TheNetwork entrance to the parking is a bit small, but the location is awesome, we're nearly at the centre. Better be there because the place is all surrounded by the policemen in bikes, who control all the are, checking who's parking at the wrong place. They're very nice, got to say, and indicates all the information we need
  • Difficult to find, especially if you are relying on a SatNav to get you there. We ended up going down streets that were delivery access only. Very conveniently located though.
  • Spaces are a bit narrow, great parking tough, you are in the hearth of Ghent so everything is really easy accesible.
  • Large square. Nice meeting point for groups.

Where to stay in Ghent

One of Belgium's main cities, Ghent offers a good variety of places to stay. Because of its proximity to the capital city of Brussels and the city of Bruges, Ghent has fewer options than one might expect for a city of its size. Locals recommend booking a room in advance. The city has options for travelers on any budget, from inexpensive hostels to pricier hotels, with most visitors choosing to stay within the historical center. Prices drop slightly as you move away from the Old Town.
