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.

Do not visit here, ever! I stayed here thankfully for only 1 night with my boyfriend after I believe we were ripped off for what we got. The hotel itself is falling to pieces as well as being situated in the middle of nowhere. The room was filfy with an ensuite that we vowed to go in only with shoes... More

Where do I start?? The parking it stats is on the pavement outside the hotel door which they squeeze 3 cars in and block you in! The state of the reception is shocking! The asian man behind the desk was watching porn constantly and expects you to handover your car keys! Our room was number 11 and we were told... More

Absolutely disgusting hotel. The room was tiny with a view of the back of a car garage, soaking wet carpet, tv didn't work, no holder for the shower head, rat poison under the bed, dirty sheets and all night long there was banging so I didn't get a wink of sleep. Never stayed in a worse place.
