What a fantastic hotel. Our original room was lovely and spacious. When we could not get the TV to work we called reception who came to the room straight away. The issue could not be fixed which didn't really bother us too much, but the helpful staff upgraded us to a suite with a balcony anyway. What a room! The...

I fell in love with Ghent this past week, partly because of staying at this lovely little boutique hotel (which is very reasonably priced). Some basics first: My room was modern and sleek, with a firm large bed and the heat was quiet and efficient through some chilly days. Breakfasts were Northern European style, substantial and delicious, with made-to-order omelets...

A very nice and cosy hotel only a 3 minutes walk from the central train station (which is a beauty) of Ghent! Spacious rooms and great service. Very clean. The breakfast was very good. The staff is absolutely professional, helpful and friendly.

Charming hotel, spacious rooms, close to station and exceptional service. The host was extremely informative and his passion for the city was detailed and quite contagious. Would highly recommend and definitely return.

We booked 2 rooms for 4 nights in December. The hotel rooms were spacious and clean. The front office staff specially Jeffery and Alan, brothers, were very very good. We will return someday, just because of them. The breakfast had a good selection. The rooms are very clean. Water is provided and refreshed daily. What made the stay memorable was...

Not sure why people are raving about this hotel. It was adequate for a night's stay. Clean, fairly comfortable. Could use more space in the bathroom and some USP ports for charging phones etc. The saving grace is the very nice and helpful staff and a yummy breakfast. No huge complaints but no raves either.

Stayed overnight at the Carlton in Ghent on the way to Dusseldorf. We chose the hotel based on other Trip Advisor reviews and we weren't disappointed. The hotel is a little out of the way but is still an easy 25 minute walk or 10 minute tram ride from the historic centre of Ghent. Don't be fooled by the unprepossessing...

Stayed here overnight in a triple room with my two adult children. We also had breakfast in the hotel. One of the two owners greeted us with cups of coffee and a map with suggestions of places to visit in town. The hotel is elegantly yet comfortably furnished, and the rooms were clean and well equipped. Breakfast was delicious--it included...
