“Five-star service in a boutique aspirational hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2012

Located just outside the historical centre of Ghent, Hotel Carlton sits on a quiet side street with ample and affordable parking available in front. There's a three-star ranking displayed next to the entrance, but you could not expect a higher level of service and personal attention in a five-star establishment. The management clearly appreciates your business.

The rooms are spacious and decorated in a somewhat dull neutral beige and brown scheme, but the beds are comfortable and a fast connection wi-fi, and over 100 cable tv channels, are included in the room price. The bathrooms are adequate and clean. There's hardly any noise from outside even with the windows open, as might be the case in more central location. Included in the price is a more than adequate breakfast buffet, with plenty of fruit, freshly baked bread and eggs available to order.

With only 20+ rooms, it is a small hotel and the management clearly wants their guests to enjoy their stay. One cannot help wondering whether they will, in the long term, wish to upgrade to cater for a more upmarket, design boutique hotel crowd. As it is today, you will have great value for your money and you will be made to feel very welcome.

In my eyes, the Carlton Hotel offers an excellent value for money. My room and bathroom were both large, modern and very clean. The breakfast is fantastic, lots of fresh fruit, individually prepared eggs and everything else you could desire. In addition, the staff is very friendly and helpful.
Parking spaces are offered at reasonable prices (10€/24h) and the tram stop is just around the corner, it takes about 5-7 minutes to get to the center of Ghent.
