“Well above a 3 Star Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

Do not be put off by the street view of this charming hotel the service is superb and the interior design is as good as many £300 + hotels in London.The 3 brothers add real quality and friendship to your stay.Nothing is to much in the way of service from these young men and you can gain excellent information about Ghent to make your trip real special.

It's a real gem and worth a visit.We had asked for bike rental which was sorted out as requested with no hick-ups whatsoever.

The location is only a 10 minute tram ride into Ghent city center and the main station and tram stops are less than 5 minute walk from the hotel.

These guys are really refreshing in the way they treat there guests and we will certainly be back.

Thanks again

Paul /Hills and the "PORT" team

Hospitality is the key word that this hotel excels in. Steven Jeffery and Davy (the owners) make this hotel a great place to stay, friendly and accommodating they made our stay a pleasant first time visit to Gent, great location with local restaurants and bars and also a short tram ride to Gent centre. And thank you Steven for driving me to a pharmacy on a bank holiday when my son needed some cold medication. Hospitality....Cheers Guys...

We had a great time at Hotel Carlton for our visit to beautiful Ghent. Jeffrey and his staff could not have done any more to make us welcome. The room was clean and a generous size with tv and tea/coffee making facilities. Breakfast was great - hot and cold in one. All in all, for the price paid, best hotel in Ghent.

From the moment we arrived in Ghent we were treated as special vistors to this city and leading the way were the brothers and other staff of this special hotel.The assistance in getting around their great city, the breakfasts, the room and the reception were all of a high standard. Just a short walk from the train station this hotel is situated near everything that we needed - public transport, cafes and restaurants and tourists spots. The reception area is welcoming and comfortable and the room we stayed in was superb. Next time we hope to stay in the 6th floor suite as this was such a delight (as shown to us!). These brothers love aht they are doing and all strength to them in making this small hotel a paradise for travellers like us.

Room Tip: The 6th floor suite is the gem but we suspect you have to book well in advance to be successful. But...

We loved this charming hotel. We stayed on the newly renovated 6 th floor with a rooftop terrace and it was equal to a 5 star hotel in its design and comfort. The same thought and effort that went into the design of the room clearly goes into making the guests feel welcome. The breakfast was delicious with our egg made to order. The brothers who own the hotel are clearly committed to making your stay wonderful. It is located near the central station, the tram into town and great restaurants. We were delighted to stay here.

Pleasure to stay in this beautifully renovated hotel. The brothers running the hotel are so pleasant and welcoming and helpful. The rooms are all newly done beds amazingly comfortable, brand new flat screenTVs, linen etc. Highly recommend this hotel for a short stay in Ghent. Pleasant half hour walk along the canals to the centre and tram stop direct to the centre. 2 minute walk from the station.

Room Tip: Higher floor back of the hotel
