Stay. Live. Call it home.

Welcome to GARE 55

Stay, read, unwind, sleep, work, meet, create, and live in a historic train station building with a unique flair. Make yourself at home: share what you like in our common spaces or retreat to your room for peace and quiet.

GARE 55 offers a sustainable and vibrant stay for expats, businesses, and groups in the port of Ghent, conveniently close to those of Antwerp and Zeebrugge. It's also within cycling distance of the picturesque Assenede and the creek area. Occasionally, during the day, a slow train passes by.

The perfect home base.

GARE 55 is a home away from home.

In our beautifully decorated common area (with a garden), there's ample space for socializing or finding a quiet corner to catch up on work, watch TV, cook, dine, or read.

Our stylish rooms offer all the comforts, including a private kitchenette and an ensuite bathroom. However, it's the small details that make a big difference: the superb beds, well-placed lighting, solar charging stations (for cars and e-bikes), our collaboration with luxurious (hand soaps and lotions from Atelier Rebul), sustainable, and frequently local suppliers, and the delightful views of the garden and the old railway.

Food & Drinks

Coffee is important. Coffee is warmth and love in a cup. That's why it's always complimentary for our guests. Additionally, we provide a delightful, honest, and locally sourced breakfast. For the rest, the choice is yours. You can prepare something in the spacious kitchen, order a meal, and of course, we know with the best dining spots to explore.
