On the 17th of April we were married at Wandsworth Town Hall. We had our wedding reception just a short way up the road at the conveniently located and locally renowned Alma Hotel. Having visited the bar and restaurant on many occasions before, we already knew the food and service were excellent, but on our wedding day the manager and... 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. Lila is an outstanding example of what customer service is all about - if only most... More

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.

When down for work in central London, The Alma is my first choice of lodgings. It's a little further out, although easily accessible on the train from Victoria and Waterloo. I think being slightly outside of the centre is what makes it feel more homely and I am always made to feel very welcome instead of being on a treadmill... More

We always stay at The Alma it's a well run small hotel ideally situated for us when visiting family. It's so easy to get around from here with the train station opposite. The rooms are comfortably appointed, i love the huge fluffy towels and crisp white bedlinen. Breakfast is really good with plenty of interesting choices. I would have given... More

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

My 11-year-old daughter and I stayed at The Alma on our first ever "Daddy/Daughter" trip. We couldn't have asked for a nicer spot to call home for a few days. By London standards, our room was massive--especially the bathroom. Prior to London, we stayed at the legendary Shelbourne Hotel in Dublin, and I would say that The Alma's room quality,... 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!
