When on holiday your ideal hotel should include management who put you first and care about your wellbeing, a great location in a quiet area, modern well equipted rooms, an extensive buffet breakfast and as a bonus on-site parking available for your car. The Carlton has all these and more. Ghent is not the easiest of places to drive around,... More

Stayed here in a family room (3 persons). Large room, clean with all amenities needed (including mini bar with room to store own drinks or the complementary bottles of water provided in the room). The service is really outstanding. The staff takes all the time to explain anything you'd like to know about Gent and how to get to the... More

Hotel Carlton was a relaxed, welcoming and comfortable hotel, very convenient for the train station and perfectly placed for exploring the delightful city of Ghent. We had a great time, and will most certainly come again.

Just had a wonderful stay here, hosted to just the right extent by the friendly and helpful owners. Positioned a minute from the train station, but with no feel of a station hotel and providing modern styled, clean rooms and an exceptional breakfast I would happily recommend this for business or leisure stays.

Every part of our stay in this hotel was first rate. You can tell that the brothers who own this hotel take great pride in providing an outstanding experience for all of their guests, even the toddlers! The rooms were top notch; clean and quiet. The breakfast was delicious, and the hospitality was impressive. All others in the hotel businesses... More

Plus good restaurants nearby and very walkable to city center sites. The staff is most helpful with any and all questions and goes out of their way to please. The breakfast is excellent. The only reason I didn't give an "excellent" rating is that the maids left our room unlocked after cleaning.

Every hotel in the world should be like the Hotel Carlton. Brothers Steven and Jeffrey bend over backwards to make your stay the best stay that you ever had. It is sort of a combination between a "boutique" hotel and a B&B. It may not be the cheapest place in Gent, but the rooms are huge and you get a... More

We were in town for a show and after telling the frontdesk that we would be back really late (around 5 in in the morning) we were told to sleep for as long as we wanted and that we would not be disturbed by the cleaning crew. Reception was one of the warmest we have ever experienced. Highly recommended, and... More

I had to visit three Belgium Cities in two days and looking at the map Ghent was the best place to stay. A quick check on TripAdviser told me the place to stay was The Carlton so I booked it. Boy was that a good call, when I got to the hotel I parked outside and went to reception, the... More

We chose this place because we wanted to be close to the SMAK for an exhibition and the station, coming in late Friday night from the airport - ideally placed for both. What the physical building lacks in charm, the brothers make up for time over with their own touches, be it in the bar, the kitchen, or in conversation.... More
