Let me start from what is good: location. That's it. A place to stay when you need to be close to the international train station. All the rest sucks, horrible bed and bathroom, a LOT of noise, mainly from other bedrooms, terrible lift and a very dark atmosphere. Never coming back.

Ok, so the location is great, the price was very good. So I cant complain too much. However double beds are on the small side and not the most comfortable in the world. The bathroom could have smelt a lot more fresh ! If your on a budget and not planning on spending a lot of time in your room,... More

The hotel is located at 200 m from the Pancras Station. So it's always easy to get back to the hotel after visiting the city. Room are small but everything is present: a clean bed, towels, a clean bathroom, teafacilities, little TV, good heating,... Our room was located just above a bar => we heared oriental musical till late at... More

I stayed here for one night and can say that for an overnight stay it is a good one. The room I stayed was not as clean as it should be, the internet sometimes works, sometimes, not. However this hotel was good for the price.

Apart from the central location, this hotel rated very poor. We booked one room for two people and although I expect that this compromises on space, this room was definitely not suitable for two double beds. The room itself was smelly, stuffy and not clean. Beds were extremely uncomfortable. The bathroom was horrid; the shower screen glass was broken, making... More

We stayed for 7 nights in Carlton Hotel. Towels were changed and room was done daily. Breakfast was good. One day on our stay we had to get the Eurostar very early so we didn't had any worries to be there on time coz we had just to cross the road. No frills and all, but the location is perfect.... More

We paid £69 per night, which is not too much for London. We needed a place near to Eurostar. Clean and warm (after reporting the lack of heating), quite noisy. I think it was music from the pub near by. Service... nothing to be delighted with but nothing to complain either. For an overnight stay I think it is a... More

In the cheapest central late room booking band but Kings Cross is disgusting: every 10m there are 3 piles of vomit; noisey, comfortable bed and room bigger than average but I would not stay here again: cannot sneak a visitor in as reception is opposite front door; breakfast very poor, coffee inedible, shower tiny, old fittings, some broken, no tea/coffee/light/drinking...

I was in London for 2 days and needless to say finding a hotel in the area at an affordable price can be a challenge. The location was fantastic giving easy access to Lodon and the cost reasonable, thats where the good news stopped, I was in a family room which would struggle to pose as a small double, the... More
