YALO is located in the center of Ghent, but is still easily accessible by car via Gent Zuid. Please note that our underground parking garage has a different address than the hotel and has 50 parking spaces. To reach our parking enter ‘Vlaanderenstraat 26‘ or ‘Yalo Hotel Parking‘ in Google Maps or the Waze app. Do NOT enter the address of the hotel. Otherwise you will drive too far, and you will not be able to turn around. The rate is 32 euros per day. There is direct access to the hotel through the parking lot.

We always recommend using Google Maps or Waze as your GPS may not be adapted to the Ghent circulation plan and will not point to the correct route.

Please note that Ghent has both a circulation plan and a low emission zone, the Yalo Hotel is located in the low emission zone: polluting vehicles that do not meet the admission requirements are not allowed to enter the zone. Avoid a 150 euro fine and check in advance if your vehicle meets the requirements.
