Because of its proximity to both Brussels and Bruges, Ghent is often regarded by tourists as a day-trip destination, but several good hotels in the center make it a convenient sightseeing base. However, the city has fewer hotels than might be expected, and those in the center are often full at peak times, so try to book in advance.
The tourist office can make hotel reservations for a returnable deposit.
