Why is it so good? 1. Even before we arrived, all our pre visit enquiries about how to get there etc... . were answered by return. 2. Such good value for money. 3. Great location, 5 minutes from Gent-Sint-Pieters train station, and five minutes from the tram systems. The tram to the centre of Ghent takes 15 minutes. The hotel...

I get the feeling that this hotel's high rating are because of its excellent value for money. The rooms are big, the staff at reception are very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast - although we didn't eat it - looked amazing. Don't expect luxury or modernity - the rooms are a little old - but at this price who's...

This was my first visit to the Carlton since new owners took it over a few years back. It's greatly improved with a comfortable room, friendly service and an excellent breakfast offering. We were blessed with unseasonably hot mid-September weather and the room became quite warm with no airconditioning. Otherwise a very pleasant and convenient stay.

We stayed at Carlton for 5 days as we used Ghent to explore the other cities in the area, including Bruges. The hotel rooms are spacious, the bathrooms are on the smaller side, but both very clean. The hotel owner/ manager and his staff are very accommodating and hospitable that we felt very welcome throughout the entire stay. The hotel...

As soon as we walked in we felt welcomed. The front desk clerk was very helpful in sharing information about getting around Gent by foot, tram and car. Since there was parking directly in front of the hotel he also explained how the parking meters worked and how to get a 1/2 day pass instead of feeding the meter every...

I was very happy to stay at the Carlton again. The welcome was as warm as a year ago! It's a 5 star hotel experience for a 3 star price. Clean, beautiful, amazing breakfast with buffet as well as a la carte and many choices. The owners do an amazing job and are extremely helpful if you need anything. Hotel...

This is the second time we have stayed here and always enjoy our stay. The rooms are spacious with two comfy chairs and a large bed with choice of pillows. Unfortunately it has been very hot each time and the rooms are very airless and retain the heat. Everything else about the stay was wonderful and the owners tried their...

Stayed here for 6 days in the summer, on business but with my young daughter. We have a long list of requirements for travelling together, and this hotel ticked pretty much every box. Location was ideal near to the station and Citadel Park. The two brothers who own the hotel and worked at the reception every day were friendly and...
