Just used the Alma for two nights to catch up with family living nearby,and to see a few London sights.(not too many,as walking any distance is not easy at the moment) Good value for money,well situated for train and bus use,and a great en-suite room,with everything to hand. Recommend room 19 which was quieter than our own bedroom in quieter... More

I really liked this place, it was clean, well thought through and delivered. Spacious bedroom, clean and lovely bathroom, nice toiletries, additional touches in the room like a Nespresso machine and optional add on packages were a great touch. Reception could not have been more helpful and breakfast was very very good.

The best thinkable start for a romantic stay in Londen. Nice staff, great service, incredible breakfast, good location... We'll get back for sure!!! PS. Don't let the nearby railwaystation scare you away, because we haven't heard one train, not even with an open window... Great job!

Being slightly outside the normal Tube reaches could be a down side but the rest is super positive. Directly opposite the exit from Wandsworth Town Over-ground rail station with 10 minute connections to Vauxhall Tube. Delightful top floor room 'Tonsley Views' (some 1st floor are over the restaurant air con units), large bathroom, free standing bath, fluffy towels... what's not... More

Hi William , Although we are not very near to the underground, as you say, it is only 10 minutes to Vauxhall and only 15 minutes to waterloo from the overground station right outside our door. Also we dont have a lift but you are always welcome to request a ground floor room upon booking. Thankyou for your kind comments... More

I stayed one night at the Alma and I wished I was staying longer! The beds were incredibly comfortable (the Queen apparently has the same make of bed!). The rooms were spacious and clean, with a Nespresso coffee machine, good selection of tea bags and biscuits. The bathroom was fab, the shower was brilliant and the towels were exceptionally white...

I've stayed at the Alma quite a few times now and every time is fantastic. From the comfortable, well equipped rooms with huge beds to the amazing restaurant food I really cannot find fault in the hotel. The staff are also extremely helpful having kept the restaurant open later for me a couple of times now when arriving late. Breakfast... More
