We have just spent four nights at the Hotel Carlton. We were early arriving and our room had not been made up but one of the owners sat us down with a cup of tea, cake and a map and showed us everything there was to see in beautiful Ghent. Our room on the 4th floor was quite large and... More

Fantastic location, room, food and customer service. Got a nice introduction to the city from one of the owners, the room was really high spec and the price was really reasonable. Would definitely recommend the breakfast too!

I'm not one to normally write reviews but I cannot let our recent trip to the Hotel Carlton pass by without doing our bit to keep this hotel at the top of the TripAdvisor list. Exceptionally friendly and helpful owners / staff. Very comfortable rooms. Great location in a lovely quiet road and only a few minutes walk to the... More

We had an overnight stay at Hotel Carlton. The reception staff were excellent and extremely helpful. The room, a triple, was fantastic, roomy, clean and perfect for our needs, a bargain for the price we paid. Due to there being scaffolding at the hotel and us having a roof box we were unable to use the car park, but parked... More

We were looked after the moment we pulled up outside the hotel and advised where to park. We were then looked after and given our room keys. A very good welcome to Hotel 16. The rooms are a decent size with everything you need and comfortable beds. Nice to have a bath and not just a shower. The breakfast was... More

Stayed one night after a cycling trip and really appreciated the comfort of this hotel which is very conveniently placed for the station. The no.1 tram takes you into the centre of town for €1.30. An ideal base to explore Ghent. The front desk service was friendly and efficient.

Stephen and Jeffrey I congratulate you both because at your "youthful" years you have understood what some hotels never discover! Not all guest are identical and all have individual needs that a successful hotel needs to satisfy. Along with our stay at the Westcord Fashion hotel in Amsterdam you are right up there already! The Costes Bros look out! Further... More

This small hotel is an unexpected gem - close to many amenities, and reasonably priced. What was wonderful, however, was the management by two young brothers. They provided great suggestions for restaurants, sight-seeing, and helped us to see parts of Ghent that we would have missed. The room was clean and very comfortable. We chose to purchase their breakfast option,... More

Stayed 1 night on cycle trip . We arrived very wet. They were very helpful drying our clothes in their dryer and providing any assistance we required . The hotel is close to the rail station and about 20 minutes from old town. However a tram leaves close to hotel and you can be in centre in 10 minutes. Its... More
