Old-fashioned hotel quite far from the city center. It is connected by bus, but be careful, the hotel is on the city line edge and if taking a bus from closest stop you may be asked to pay bigger cost. The rooms are fully equipped, but 2 or 3 times I have not found bottles with water and some bath...

Hotel is not new but very comfortable and quiet. It is being renovated from the outside. Rooms are comfortable and well equiped with cosy beds and bathrooms with tub and cabin. Breakfast with artificial scrambled eggs made from powder was not too tasty.

This was our third visit to the Carlton and although the breakfast and accommodation were of the same good standard, we felt that the evening meal had gone down in quality quite a lot. We were not given the option of the set menu by the waiting staff, which would have been better value for us. The food was ok...

The best thing about the hotel is that is located close to several big offices where you might have business, otherwise it is rather far from the city. The rooms are correct, the food is ok. They have a surf 'n turf salad that is terrific

The staff members are very nice. The members are friendly at the front desk, the check in went good they made a good first impression. The room has everything we need and it was very clean. Since the difference between the service in the hotel itself and it's restaurant is huge, I will put a separate review for the restaurant....
