Hotel Carlton in Gent of one of the best hotels I've ever seen in my life. This is a nice family hotel, in the hands of three friendly brothers. They always make you feel welcome and good when you stay in Hotel Carlton. I'll be back soon!!!

My husband and I recently had the opportunity to visit Gent on way to Paris and found this hotel via TripAdvisor. Right from the start this place was the most friendly, clean and helpful place to experience. The three young men who own and manage this place have made this place an oasis to come home to after a busy day of sightseeing. The lobby area is quaint and has a small bar in which we experienced a great get-together with all others staying at the hotel and Steve was a great host/bartender to everyone. The room was clean and nicely decorated and the beds were very comfy. The breakfast was also very delicious and well worth it. This was by far the best place on our trip, even better than Paris. Would recommend this hotel for anyone looking to enjoy a friendly, fun environment. Thanks guys for such a great vacation!

Room Tip: The hotel is on a quiet street but without AC and the window open, you can hear anything being done...

The first thing I would highlight is the friendliness of the owners of the hotel. Very welcoming and always ready to help your stay. Then, it has a nice price/quality ratio, because it has very large rooms and bathrooms, but prices are not that high. Breakfast is also good, not in much quantity, but with good quality.
Very close to the main train/bus station in Gent and, even though it is not so close to the center, in 5 minutes by tram or 30 minutes on foot you arrive to lovely Gent center (Graslei).
I really recommend it!

This hotel was our last stop on a 2 week road trip round Europe and it opened my eyes to how great service can make a place. The brothers who own the place and the staff they employ are so ahead of the game in making you feel welcome it is unbelievable (not to mention their great sense of humour). The room was the biggest we stayed in over 2 weeks with a rate to match the others in accessibility to those on a budget. It's location near the station means that there is a tram stop round the corner to take you into the centre in about 7 minutes - tickets from reception. I wouldn't consider any other place if going back to Ghent.

Service is the watchword for the guys running this hotel - and they deliver brilliantly. The rooms are spacious and tastefully modern, and the location is extremely convenient for the tram into town (10 mins) and the main station (2 min walk). Truly great value for money.

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

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...
