Van der Valk Hotel Ghent is open

Update 28th of April 2021
Recently, the Belgian government announced that, as of 8 May, the curfew will be abolished and replaced by a ban on gathering, whereby you are allowed to assemble with a maximum of 3 people between 12:00 AM and 5:00 AM. Also, as of the 8th of May, terraces of restaurants and cafes may be opened again. Between 8:00 AM and 10:00 PM and 4 people are allowed to sit at one table.

Update 8th of April 2021
Van der Valk Hotel Ghent is open. Although we are open, the current measures taken by the Belgian government do influence what we can offer the guests in our hotel. Breakfast is done based on a 'take away' concept where you can order a breakfast box and pick it up in the restaurant so you can eat it in your room. Lunch and dinner are served according to the in-room dining concept, where our team serves you the food in your room.

Until 8 May 2021 there is a curfew throughout Belgium between 12:00 AM and 5:00 AM (with the exception of Brussels, where the curfew is between 10:00 PM and 6:00 AM). Of course, our hotel remains open but we do ask our guests to respect the curfew. If you are unable to check in outside of curfew hours, it may be possible check in during the curfew but only in consultation with the reception desk. Thank you for your understanding!

We offer breakfast on a take-away basis. You will receive a menu at the reception desk upon check-in on which you can indicate your choice for breakfast, which you can pick up in the restaurant the next day and eat in your room. From 8 May onwards, the terraces will also be open where you have the possiblity to sit down and eat your breakfast.

Lunch and Dinner
Lunch and dinner are served on the basis of in-room dining. The dishes you order will be brought to your room by our team and served at the table specially set for you in your room. Of course, the necessary safety measures are also respected here. As of 8 May, lunch and dinner will also be served at our terraces.

Meeting Rooms
Our meeting rooms are open for business meetings and meetings in compliance with the current measures. For more information or to book a room, please contact our sales department at
