The old historic part of the city is a 15 minutes walk away from the accomodation, just follow the river to the right.
The center is also reachable by public transport. Bus stop ‘Ter Platenbrug’ is located 200m from our address. Bus lines 55, 58, 71, 72, 76, 77, 78 will lead you to ‘Gent Zuid’, where you can take tram 4, which goes to the center. You can get off at the Korenmarkt, right in the center. The journey takes about 15 minutes.
Note: there are no night buses, so make sure you know when is the last bus (around 1) or be prepared to go by foot or pay the taxi.
Taxis are fairly cheap in Ghent. The starting price is €8.50 for the ﬁrst 3km.
