Fodor's Review

This illustrious hotel exudes old-world grace and charm along with a sense of history—which it has aplenty. Past luminaries who have trod the halls of this elegant white elephant of a hotel include Orson Welles, Ava Gardner, Ernest Hemingway, Lauren Bacall, Federico García Lorca, Albert Einstein, and Alfonso XIII, grandfather of Spain's King Juan Carlos I. Squarely in the middle of the Ensanche, the Carlton is equidistant from the Casco Viejo and Abandoibarra area.

Exemplary service from front desk staff, plus luxury gym and business center.
