I stayed in Carlton hotel for 2 nights. The hotel is conveniently located just 5 minutes walk from the central train station of Frankfurt in Karlstr. It is owned by an Iranian guy and the lady at the front desks speaks English, Polish, German and Persian fluently. The Bahnhof area is known as the red light district of Frankfurt and there are many sex shops, brothel houses and Eros Kino centers all around. Hopefully Karlstr. is one block away from this mess! The hotel faces a REWE supermarket which is open from 7 am until 10 pm.
There is no lobby on the entrance, just the reception desk and a narrow hall which leads you to the lift (a very small one) and the breakfast buffet. The price is very reasonable which includes breakfast and free W-Lan access with a noteworthy speed. The rooms are small while the bedsheets, curtains and carpets are faded. The toilet and shower are spotless and clean though old. The bed and pillow are just OK. The small minibar fridge in my room was out of order and not working while the small 14" TV is no big deal to me. They have smoking rooms available on guest's request but there is no ventilation in such rooms. The breakfast is very minimal with few choices, let's call it pour.
The ladies at the front desk though are very cooperative and guide guests properly.
To sum up, this is a budget hotel so don't expect much but in parallel you are just 5 min. away from the Bahnhof, have easy access to the famous Kaiserstr. and the city center. I recommend this hotel to a solo traveller or business travellers but not at all suitable for families or couples. All in all my stay was Ok and I didn't face any problems either.
