Book your hotel

If you want to enjoy the beautiful city centre of Ghent, you can book a hotel in the centre. Public transport is easily accessible and stops next to Flanders Expo. Book your hotel through Bookings.com and find all available options.

Second Home recommends to stay at Hotel van de Valk Gent, a brand new hotel with outstanding food & beverage for breakfast and dinner and a beautiful spa. You can use this link to book your room, use code GET-Easyfairs for a 12% discount. Please note that you will need a car to travel from the hotel to Flanders Expo.

Next to Flanders Expo you find Hotel Holiday Inn. This hotel is easy to access because it is literally next door to the expo (2 minute walk), but we want to inform you that (in our opinion) the hotel is outdated and the price-quality ratio is below average.
