I normally don't write review but felt compelled to write one for my stay at Hotel Carlton. Hotel Carlton is centrally located in Ghent. So I was able to walk to most of the sightseeing spots easily. The owners of Hotel Carlton really care about their customer experience. They paid attention to every little details to ensure I had a...

We selected this hotel based on reviews from this site and we were not disappointed. Everyone who works there is absolutely fabulous. The hotel is a bit of a walk to the center of the city, but near a tram stop, and for the way they treat you, it's worth it. I don't think I've ever stayed at a hotel...

I was at the Carlton hotel few days of march for work, and I found it really satisfying: the staff is welcoming and helpful, always smiling and helping you for every needs (e.g., me and my colleague forgot the power adaptor). Room was very spacious, warm and plenty of sunlight at the afternoon (so nice). It was cleaned every day,...

Have just had a great 3 nights at this hotel. A friendly welcome on arrival set the tone for our stay. Every member of staff we dealt with was approachable, helpful and informative. We had a triple room which was clean, spacious and well stocked with tea and coffee. Although outside the old centre of Ghent the hotel was within...

I should maybe start of by saying that me and my wife use to travel a lot for work, but this hotel is something special! We just came back from our weekend in Ghent and what a great weekend it was. It started off by a very warm welcome in the hotel lobby and continued when entering our room. It...

We had a perfect stay at Hotel Carlton. Staff, room, breakfast, location, wifi, everything was top notch. When we arrived, the gentleman at the front desk could not have been more welcoming or helpful. He sat down with us for a while and recommended attractions and restaurants, and providing detailed instructions how to get around either on foot, or using...

We had a short 2 night stay. From the moment we stepped in the door Jeffrey was helping us. Before we even checked in he sat down and explained how the city worked, the trams and good spots to check out. My wife walked in with a bad cold. Runny eyes, hurt all over and sneezing like crazy. Jeffrey had...

This is a small hotel just 4 or 5 minutes walk from the station and tram stops and about a 30 minute easy walk to the centre of Ghent. All the staff were helpful, friendly and informative. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and the breakfasts were very high quality. The omelettes, pancakes etc cooked by request were amazing. Our room was...

This is a cute little hotel that is very close to the train station in Ghent. Our room, bed, wifi all great. The front desk clerk went way above and beyond in his friendliness and the advice he gave us about seeing the city. He asked what we were interested in, and recommended a few restaurants, and drew out the...
