before I start, staff lovely. Hotel looks nothing like it's picture, only 3 spaces to park but it says ample free parking. Asked to leave car keys. um no !!!! Toilet flush didn't work. Shower fitting loose, window catches unable to stay upright. Carpets worn, tiles worn badly but beds were clean !!!!!

We arrived there to find there was no parking, only enough room for 3 cars at the front on the pavement. As soon as we walked in, the hotel smelt horrible, we were put on the top floor, the hotel is filthy and we didnt feel comfortable there. The carpets were filthy and walls were too. When we got in...

I stayed at the London Shelton whilst I was working near Kings Cross in London. I discovered the Shelton on the T'Internet and booked without seeing the hotel first hand as the price seemed very reasonable for the London area. I was rather worried to what I may find when I arrived. The staff were very friendly when ever I... More

There are many things wrong with this place. The place was run down with sparse primarily broken furniture, the tv did not work, the bathroom barely functional and the room was not cleaned well. Another major concern was the 24 hour check in. Basically you leave your room key with the reception and get it back when you return to... More

I stayed here as I was working on an event at Alexandra Palace and booked fairly last minute. For the price, in London, I wasn't expecting anything fancy and this hotel didn't disappoint! Everything was very basic but serviceable. I had a room at the front and am surprised that I got any sleep due to the thin (and not... More

We stayed at this hotel as were going to a gig at Alexandra Palace and paid £50. The room was basic but clean. Handily located for the train and only 2 miles from the venue. Only downsides (this one isn't their fault but it helps to know) there is nowhere beyond a paper shop to buy food on your way... More

Stayed there because I had a festival near by, so required nothing special. If you just need a bed for the night this will do. Nothing special. Fairly thin windows. Bathroom not great either but you get hot water! Didn't see any bugs or mice which is a plus!

To anyone who is considering of going to the London Shelton hotel, don't. Chewing gum in the shower, floor is disgusting and beds where you can't sleep in. This will ruin your stay. Location is okay but that is all I can say.
