4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

During my visit I found the staff very nice and helpfull. The room has a good size,only for me personally the bed was to soft. The bathroom was outdated but a good size. The hotel overall looked a bit outdated but at some points it has it charme aswell.

There can always be misunderstandings and other problems and part of a good hotel is making up for mistakes in a friendly manner: after screwing up my dinner at one of the previous stays I had a nice letter from the director and on one of my next stays I felt almost overcompensated. Arriving to a big closed free parking... More

As a Belgian, I spend 80% of my time in the Netherlands for work. I try to keep things interesting by switching hotels, but since the Carlton is the closest to the office, I end up here a lot :) The Carlton is one of those hotels you need to grow into. I approach this hotel from a business view.... More

Rooms: Dated and basic - they have seen better days - probably the 1980's. You could imagine David Bowie here in 85! Bathroom: Slow but warm shower Beds: Comfy and functional TV channels: Good range of BBC and local Breakfast: A rare delight in the hotel - it was a wide range and tasty as!

We have stayed with friends during a weekend and we were not disappointed. The hotel is little bit further from the centre of the city, but that's nothing public transport or taxi could not solve. The rooms were clean with very comfortable beds, nice bathroom having shower and also bath tub. Our room had balcony with nice view to small... More

The Carlton President in Utrecht, is about 50km from Amsterdam. It is a low rise hotel with 3 floors. We stayed for 2 nights as part of a tour group. Our room was on the top floor and although there are 2 lifts, only one of them has access. This caused a slight delay when we checked in, as everyone... More

I was travelling on business which can quite often be very lonely. I have stayed in many bland impersonal hotels. This was very much an exception, from the welcome of the receptionist to the unique barman Frank I was made to feel a very valued customer. The free shuttle bus got me to the office without any trouble. After checking... More

I was traveling with a group of students and we stayed only one night. But that night was very good and I was hoping we could stay more, but we had to go to our next location. Bedroom was very big and bed was soft, it was like I slept on the clouds. Everything was clean and tidy. The staff... More

We liked the hotel, no real complaints, my review is solely to give a realistic impression. We got upgraded to an executive room, which was not exceptionally 'executive'. The bed was supposed to be king, but was about 140cm at most (but VERY comfy, I must say). Mini bar was included, which consisted of wine, soft drinks and liquor and... More

stayed for business, not very central for tourists I suppose, but there is a direct bus right to the central rail station. Rooms are OK, bed is to soft for my taste, and air conditioner way to loud (cannot sleep with it turned ON). Food was good, for both dinner and breakfast.
