Went only for one day and as soon as I entered, the guy from the lobby was even better than any local guide you would hire. Got all the practicalities from around the area, transport tips, bar and restaurat tips, and all of this upfront without having the need to ask. Super clean place, practical location, really good price, and...

Excellent service, the brothers who own it could not be more welcoming, helpful and hospitable. Good location a 30 minute walk from the main tourist sights. Lovely clean rooms, would definitely stay here again.

We recently visited Ghent for a day and a night. We were fortunate in selecting the Carlton for our nights stay. It is located about a 5 minute walk from the train station, which is about as easy as access gets. The owner welcomed us and give us a very comprehensive 15 minute overview of the city, what to see,...

We stayed for 3 nights in early September & as most others have commented, found the room large, clean, airy & very comfortable. It was unseasonably hot & the lack of air con was a factor, but the presence of a mobile blower unit helped a lot as did the 2 complimentary bottles of water provided each day. The most...

I stayed in this hotel for business and was booked a triple room. Lovely modern, clean and extremely friendly reception (staff spoke great English!). Room was spacious, modern and so so comfortable. Memory foam mattress and very quiet, restful nights sleep. Breakfast was great, the lady serving was brilliant - nothing was too much trouble. Great location, tram to the...

Why is it so good? 1. Even before we arrived, all our pre visit enquiries about how to get there etc... . were answered by return. 2. Such good value for money. 3. Great location, 5 minutes from Gent-Sint-Pieters train station, and five minutes from the tram systems. The tram to the centre of Ghent takes 15 minutes. The hotel...

I get the feeling that this hotel's high rating are because of its excellent value for money. The rooms are big, the staff at reception are very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast - although we didn't eat it - looked amazing. Don't expect luxury or modernity - the rooms are a little old - but at this price who's...

This was my first visit to the Carlton since new owners took it over a few years back. It's greatly improved with a comfortable room, friendly service and an excellent breakfast offering. We were blessed with unseasonably hot mid-September weather and the room became quite warm with no airconditioning. Otherwise a very pleasant and convenient stay.

We stayed at Carlton for 5 days as we used Ghent to explore the other cities in the area, including Bruges. The hotel rooms are spacious, the bathrooms are on the smaller side, but both very clean. The hotel owner/ manager and his staff are very accommodating and hospitable that we felt very welcome throughout the entire stay. The hotel...

As soon as we walked in we felt welcomed. The front desk clerk was very helpful in sharing information about getting around Gent by foot, tram and car. Since there was parking directly in front of the hotel he also explained how the parking meters worked and how to get a 1/2 day pass instead of feeding the meter every...
