Carlton or Majestic Barriere?

I know that the Majestic's rooms (some or all- not sure) have recently been renovated, while Carlton's are still outdated - but it's still Carlton- so how would they compare? Is Majestic better? Or does the Carlton experience override the outdated room issue?

It all depends on what you want. The Carlton is excellent if you can afford a room facing the front of the hotel; some rooms on the back are on the small side.

Planning to book the classic room, still worth it?

It's difficult to say because all the rooms vary.

The Majestic is more likely to offer a more up to date room, but you may be lucky at the Carlton

I would suggest you check out recent reviews of the classic rooms you are considering on TA and booking.com and other travel websites to help. Also look for special upgrade offers on the different hotel broker sites

FWIW we always choose whichever hotel it is that offers the better room.

You can visit the other hotel for drinks and a look round- they are only 5 minutes walk apart
