We spent one night at the Europahotel and it met all our requirements. The hotel is located about a 25 minute walk from the centre of Gent, a taxi back cost us about €12 which seemed quite expensive. We chose the hotel for the free parking and found it a good base for cycling on the canal. There is quite a lot of free parking but time your arrival right so other guests have checked out and left some spaces free! The hotel also offers underground parking for €10 a night.
The hotel was clean and comfortable and there was a good choice for breakfast, although watch out for cold eggs and bacon!
