This is one of the most convenient hotels I had stayed in London, location is perfect, rooms are small, wifi is not bad at all and breakfast is modest but tasty. For a day or two I would reccomend for sure.

I booked the hotel room because I needed to catch an early Eurostar train and there was supposed to be a Tube strike, which in the event was cancelled. The reception member of staff offered me an upgrade to a double room on arrival. The room was clean, large, and did the job. Solid night sleep. The key thing is...

I have stayed at the Carlton for over 2 years now it's excellent value for money, the only thing is now the price is a little lower because they have gone fully Continental Breakfast, but loads of cerial, toast, croissants, Cheese, and boiled eggs, Tea & coffee, plus it's just across the road from King Cross Station and Underground.

The price and location makes this a good place to stay for a solo traveler! You are next to St Pancras and a decent curry shop. WiFi is on every floor, but the signal is sometimes better in the lobby. Generally clean and warm. Breakfast is weak, but completely in line with that price point. Very nice staff at front...

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...
