We had a very relaxed and enjoyable stay at the Hotel Carlton. Its on a quiet side-street, easy to get to from main road route around the city. They have off-street parking available (10 Euro per day I recall) but ample ticketed public parking outside for a couple of quid per day. We went for the latter and had no...

My wife and I spent one night during our trip to Germany. The location of Hotel Carlton is only 3 mins away from the mail station and 1 min to the tram station where #1 can lead you to the historical city center. We had very pleasant stay in the Hotel Carlton, especially with the lady when we checked-in. She...

Hello Alex I'm glad you enjoyed our hotel and the service ! I think we didn't explain you well how we work with the tram tickets. If you would buy 1 ticket per person you would pay €3. We sell €14 cards which gives 10 trips, so 1 trip is only €1,40. What we do here is people that didn't...

Our visit to Hotel Carlton was the last of an 18 day tour of Spain, France and Belgium. We visited many hotels but the greeting at Hotel Carlton was without doubt the best. We were greeted by Jeffrey who was extremely apologetic that our room was not ready even though we arrived over two hours early and did not expect...

I could not have been more pleased with my stay at the Hotel Carlton. The hotel is located a quick walk from train station and tram stop on a quiet side street. Our room faced away from the street and we were able to sleep with the windows open. The room was clean, nicely decorated, and had a very comfortable...

For €103 (including tourist tax), especially right near the main train station (a 5 minute walk), I didn't expect much other than a reasonable bed. Was I ever surprised! In a good way, a very good way. Our room was spacious, comfortable and very well appointed. It had a super comfortable king size bed and wanted for nothing. Every member...

Out of the 5 hotels we stayed in recently while in Europe this was everyone's favorite. The two brothers who own this hotel work the front desk every day and pay attention to details. Jeffery was especially fun to talk to and was very helpful. We liked to end the evening with a glass of wine or a beer in...

Our staying in Carlton Hotel was one of the most interesting surprises in Ghent. We needed a basic accommodation, since we knew that Ghent itself was a fantastic destination. Yet, the hotel proved to be the perfect completion of our experience in the town. The manager of the hotel was one of the most willing individuals I have ever met....

The Hotel Carlton is one of the top 3 Star hotels that we have stayed at in Europe during our past 4 trips. This hotel has everything that a traveler would want, except for an ocean view But there is no ocean in Ghent! Our well-appointed and spacious room was very comfortable. We slept well on the beds every night....

I stayed here last week on business and can recommend this place highly enough.
