My original hotel room fell through at the last minute, so I walked out of the train station pulling a suitcase and found the Carlton immediately. How serendipitous! The gentleman who greeted me was extremely friendly. The price of the room was great, including a terrific buffet-style breakfast. The room was cute European, two singles pushed together, a smallish shower... More

This was a great spot for our first night in Germany after a 17 hour flight. We were greeted at the desk by a friendly face. The room was quiet, comfortable and clean. This is not a five star hotel with all the extras but rather a comfortable family run, small hotel. The breakfast was delicious with a good variety.... More

The Carlton is the perfect place for easy access and short walk to the Frankfurt Hauptbahnhof. Its also only a short 10 minute walk to the "Fressgasse" area where you will want to spend time enjoying the Frankfurt restaurant and shopping scene. The rooms are pretty small and nothing fancy and come with a typical European breakfast of fresh bread,... More

I needed one more night in town before heading far north in Germany by train the next day. I had to leave my 5-star accommodations and this is where I stayed next. Of course this place could not compare to a 5-star, and it was hard to go from one to the next! The front desk is right inside the... More

The way from main railway station to historical center of Frankfurt starts with local red light district. Carlton hotel is luckily located because being near railway station (3 minutes of walk) and on the way to the center, it is on a calm street. And, in addition, being near railway station means also being close to Exhibition fair and Festhalle... More

Tired, smelly rooms, unfriendly front desk and owner of the hotel. The location is near the main train station but also in the red light district. Breakfast of poor quality, the cheapest products available.

Good choice to visit Frankfurt with reasonable price. Good position (near train station) and very close to Exhibition Fair. The rooms are ok and the services are ok. I tried this hotel last year and I think I will come back again soon!!!!

The best things about this property are the staff (very nice) and location within steps from the main train station and close to the Messe (fairgrounds). The building, room and furniture were pretty worn. Breakfast was just ok and the free wifi worked with no major problems (if maybe a bit slow and with some interruptions). If you are looking...
