Close to train stations and a few bars, about a 10 min ride into town center via tram. Clean and comfortable rooms and very friendly staff and private parking driving but book in advance. Ate at little burger joint called Pauls just over road wich was excellent value for money. Ghent was nice but would not say its the most...

Of all the hotels we stayed in on our 2-week journey through France and Belgium, the Carlton was far and away the best! We stayed two nights and would have extended our stay if the hotel hadn't been fully booked. It's rare to find such a wonderful combination of quality facility and superb staff. The managers consistently offered kind attention...

Stayed here for two nights at end of a bike trip around Germany. This hotel has a secure private car park (garage) for around eight cars. The owner is a biker himself and even offered chain lube after we arrived. The hotel rooms are well kept with comfy beds. The buffet breakfast is excellent, the hotel is a reasonable walk...

Clean and comfortable hotel, stayed in a very large triple bedded room at the front. Although on a busy street, it wasn't noisy. great location very near to train station, but equally easy to get the tram into the centre. Staff are very helpful, welcoming and pleasant. Breakfast is well worth €12 - lots of choice and hot dishes cooked...

All up, an excellent hotel. A surprise really. Located just 200m from the main train station, it’s an easy walk to this small, unassuming hotel. However, once you enter, you get a sense that the management know what they’re doing and do it well they do. After registration, you can have a sit-down with the manager who will happily orient...

We came to Ghent for a one night stay, so we chose to stay close to the train station rather than in the older part of the city, which worked out great. Hotel Carlton is just around the corner from the train station, so it was super convenient getting to and from the trains, even with our luggage. And it...

Was the room (and bathroom) quiet, comfortable, and clean?: yes. Was the location perfect, being on a quiet block within very easy walking distance (even with bags) of the train station (important, considering we were using Ghent as a springboard to day trips to Brussels, Brugge, & even Amsterdam)?: yes. Was the breakfast available well prepared with ample choices of...

This hotel was perfect for us. It was just a short walk to the train station and the tram. The bed was very comfortable with extra pillows and blankets. The room was very quite large and had a refrigerator and a tea kettle with a nice selection of teas. Most importantly, the staff was very attentive to anything and everything...
