Very nice hotel close to where our son is living, right opposite Wandsworth town station with buses running right in front of the hotel. Quiet, well renovated interiors with quality fittings and service. Very good choice for our stay

I stayed at The Alma for NYE this past year and it was excellent! Wonderful rooms, extremely nice staff and the breakfast on New Year's Day was fabulous. Excellent access to public transportation. Already booked for my next stay in London this coming November!

I really liked this place - the room was comfortable, the bathroom well equipped (including a great shower), the breakfast was delicious and the staff were friendly and helpful. My only gripe would be the quality of the hairdryer - silly but this is not a budget hotel and these little things matter.

This is a great place to stay in London with easy access to the city from the railway station right opposite the hotel. Or jump on a “Boris Bike” also available outside the hotel. The restaurant serves good gastro pub food and an excellent breakfast. We were on the top floor facing Alma Road which was quiet and the room... More

The Alma is a very cosy pub / hotel with very much improved food and service from the staff. The rooms are lovely and warm and it is so accessible to the rest of London with Wandsworth Town overground train station across the road.

Our second time here. Just as wonderful as the first. It is the staff who set this hotel apart. Just wonderful service. A shout to Lily and Rahma for going the extra mile. This hotel is very central to shopping with an excellent range of eating establishments close by.
