All of their guest are given individual attention and nothing is to much trouble, all of the staff are very pleasant and attentive, particularly... More

Having been to Ghent on many occasions for the 6 Day, this was my first stay at the Hotel Carlton. On arrival, we were greeted by the exceptional Stephen. When mediocrity seems to be the excepted norm, Stephen was a breath of fresh air. The hotel was busy upon arrival but we were quickly checked in. The room was spacious,... More

On our early arrival (straight from the ferry), the very pleasant breakfast staff member took the time to check us in, give detailed instructions as how to get the best out of a day in Ghent and show us into the secure parking area, 10Euro for 24 hours. They will also supply a tram ticket for which you pay later... More

Charming and very friendly hotel managed by two brothers offers also a very good quality breakfast! Renewed rooms and helpful staff guarantee a warm and cosy stay in the most beuatiful city of Belgium. Also take a look at hte typewriters of W.F.Hermans in Boekhandel Limerick ( Koningin Elisabethlaan 142 ), just a few steps away.

The check-in process is impressive. The hotel owner will come to greet you, take you to a comfortable seat, explain you all details about Ghent, where and how to go in a very gentle, polite manner. The location of hotel is great, only 2-3 minutes walk from train station and also on a quiet road. Breakfast is nice, have egg... More

We found Hotel Carlton to be a good value in a super convenient location as many others have noted. Just a few minute walk from both the train station and tram stop, so perfect if you are travelling without a car (note that parking is limited and needs to be reserved). Spacious, clean room with comfortable bed. The warm welcome... More

So much to love about our stay at the Hotel Carlton. The staff went out of their way to help, and they provide you with everything from local recommendations to tram tickets. Breakfast was delicious, and we were able to rent bikes for a lovely ride through the Belgian countryside. The room was spacious and the shower was awesome. Seriously,... More
