Originally booked the European Hotel but received an email saying it was closed for Christmas for refurbishment so we had been transferred to their sister Carlton Hotel for the same price but with continental breakfast instead of English. We also ended up with 2 separate rooms instead of the family room booked. Our rooms were on the second floor and...

Everyone that worked here were very nice, very helpful and very welcoming. I have nothing to complain about cleanliness. Furniture and shower was pristine. I would have given 5 for only that. However the internet was literally non existent. I needed it badly. I have told the reception about it and one of them said that he was going to...

Stayed here for 2 nights at just over £160 for a double. Room was half way up the road and up a tight flight of stairs - almost like shabby student accommodation. Room was small with tiny bathroom and very basic. No toiletries, no bin, 2 bars of supermarket basic soap placed on top of the toilet. Don't expect a...

Thanks to the Carlton staff for allowing us to book a room at very short nitice. It was 1am in the morning and we were in need of a safe place to get 4hours kip before our train at 6.15am. The station area wasn't a very safe place at those small hours. We called them and they said we could...

Sometimes change isn't good. We were travelling to Paris by Eurostar and at the last minute decided to travel down the night before. We are normally far better organised and book one of the cheaper chains. With limited availability we plumped for this hotel just opposite St Pancreas station. Locale wise it could not be better, but other than that...

The hotel had changed from my last visit, stayed on the 4th floor (small room) but clean and tidy. The breakfast had completed changed from full English to Continental which was very slow and not enough food plus cups and glasses for guests. A little disappointed so hope they will improve in near future.

Arrived at 2:30am after a long day of travel to find a room with windows open and towels on the floor of the tiny bathroom, not to mention the smell of something very foul in the bathroom. When I went down to ask the night manager for fresh towels he insisted he come up to see. By the time I...

We came to London for two days and needed a room for two just to sleep and have a proper rest. The place of the hotel is amazing, a lot of interesting places, museums are really near. Place of the hotel is the biggest necessity. Our room was so tiny.. Interior, furniture and everything was really cheap and basic. Bathroom...

For all it was good hotel and great location. The stairs to 4th floor were challenge, but we coped. It was 45.000 iskKR (+-300 pounds and 3 nights) it was all we needed. Great for this amount of money. Thangs :D
