Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

The hotel is well located close to St Pieters station and there are some great restaurants in the area. It is on tram 1 which is ten minutes to the city centre or a 30 minute walk.
The hotel has 24 rooms, our room was very good size, well designed, modern and decent bathroom.
Staff were all extremely friendly and incredibly helpful.
Good breakfast. I cannot fault the hotel and would highly recommend it.

Good location near railway station and tram to go to the center of ghent in 10 minutes. They have private parking and Wifi. Very nice spacious and clean rooms, Subliem breakfast and very, very friendly staff. We highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Although very little noise, rooms at the back are quieter.

Unlike some near-train-station hotels this is a quiet location, well presented hotel with very friendly staff, spatious rooms and a good breakfast!

Close to tram stop too - so it is easy to travel to the centre. Free Wifi.

Hotel came recommended by Hotelier in Bruge. We got a great rate that included breakfast. Location very close to train station as well has having the tram practically out the front door. Room more than adequate, very clean, up to date and all the amenities. Hosts were perfect and extremity helpful. Would recommend it to anyone and would definitely go back again.

Room Tip: As usual i like to look at the city. See what is happening...I can always look at a garden.

I stopped here one noght for business, I really liked this hotel. Parking was great and indoors (a very cold snowy night).

The staff were brilliant, nothing too much trouble.

Room was great, excellent value.
Breakfast was well worth the money.

I found this hotel from Trip Advisor's review and no hesitate to make booking then. Very impressive things we've met through our stay:-
- Location: not far from train station and in walking distance. The hotel is on right side of the station (walk to second road from the most right)
- Room: to my surprise with big room, stylish, clean especially shower room, great!
- Breakfast: fresh cook every morning, feel like home made.
- Price: charge in 3 stars, but servicing as 5 stars rate
The owner guy is in best service, do everything, good care to all guests.
Do not overlook when first enter the hotel until getting in room (as the reception area and
elevator are small). BTW, free wifi could work well downstair only.
Love Ghent, love Carlton's

We went to Ghent last weekend to see a friend of ours and I booked a room in this hotel because it was next to the trainstation and in the neighbourhood of our friend. I didn't expect too much of the hotel as it was "only" a 3 stars hotel and quite cheap, but as soon as we arrived I knew I could've expected more and still have a pleasant surprise. There were 3-4 factors which counted for me:
1. The room:
A really good surprise there: the room was really big! I didn't expect that and was at once really happy I chose this hotel. It was all comfy, clean, well lit and well presented (for example the waterbottles on the table, the tea&coffee bags, ...). The bed was also good (which is quite important to me as I can have some back problems when sleeping in a too old bed).
The bathroom was not too big, but big enough.The towels were good, we had no problem with hot&cold water, .. and it was clean.
2. The garage:
It is a tiny garage, but all the same, it was good to have a place were we could park the car on arrival and be sure it was safe during our stay. The garage is in the hotel "basement", so only guests can access it. We left it there the whole three days.
3. The breakfast:
Here one word would suffice: YUMMY!!!!! I'm not usually a breakfast person, but took breakfast everyday there. Everything's fresh and tasty: the fresh orange juice, fresh fruits they cut in the kitchen next to you, hot and warm dishes, the bread was good too and the eggs they cook for you were perfect. I woke up early everyday only not to miss the breakfast.
4. The service:
Now, this is the real "plus" of this hotel. It is managed by three brothers and you really get the feeling that they care about each and every guest they have, just as I imagine it was in "the old days". They are really helpful about your stay in Ghent, but also in general. They also remember immediately which language you speak, they're really pleasant and nice, but not in the "fake" way you're used to in taller hotel chains. Here you just feel as real guests, not clients!

What else is there to say? The hotel is really close to the train station, if you come by car it's only 5-10min from the highway. As it is next to the train stations you basically can take a streetcar nearly every ten minutes to everywhere in Ghent and it takes you 10 minutes to get to the center of the Old City (30min by foot max). ... Oh, and if you want to taste a good wine, ask Steven who knows quite a lot about wine and will help you choose.
