Where to Stay in Eeklo
Eeklo is a small town (20.000 people). We recommend a couple of small hotels which aren't too far from our offices.
Expect spending around 90 Euro for a room (1 or 2 people), including breakfast.
(2km from office)
Gentsesteenweg 28 | 9900 Eeklo | Tel: +32 (9) 378.09.50
This boutique hotel is situated in a manor from 1909 and is classified as "landmark."
This may be a good choice if you are looking for a charming hotel, and they have wireless internet, too!
If they would be "fully booked", they will help you to find another place to stay.
Hotel Isola Bella
(one village further down the main road to Ghent -- 4,5km from office)
Guido Gezellelaan 27 | 9950 Waarschoot | Tel: +32 (9) 218.09.70
This is a modern hotel - also recommended. jobEQ's staff are regular customers in their restaurant. If you are coming to a jobEQ training between May and September, and the weather would be nice, it's good to know this hotel offers airconditioning...
(2km from office, but 4 km from the train station)

Where to Stay in Ghent
Ghent is one of the largest cities in Belgium, with a population of about 250,000. The city is rich in culture and history, and it is not far from our headquarters if you are travelling by car or train.
Near the train station:

another 3-star hotel, situated less than 100 meters behind the railway station - given we are an internet company we added it to this list since we heard it has free wireless internet access in the rooms and its room rates are decent as well.

The center of Ghent is an interesting, historical place with plenty of
pubs and restaurants. The town center can be reached from the train station
in about 10 minutes by public transport (tram) or taxi.

Other visitors have been staying at Bed & Breakfast addresses nearby. I heard positive feedback from "B&B Cambiare" in Eeklo (1,2km) and from "B&B Summergem" (6,7 km from here).
Additional hotels are also worth mentioning: "Het Godshuis" in Sint-Laureins (about 7km) and "Cleythil Hotel" in Maldegem (about 8km).
Both hotels have been used by people having a car or willing to do some serious biking...
Obviously, you can find these and other options at Booking.com or AirBnB.
