I booked this because of the rave reviews but have to say it was not as plush as I was expecting, from the reviews on here, and their own website. It was nice, but I had been expecting a little more luxury. The single beds were very close to each other, and very hard - some of the luxury items... More

I was genuinely surprised at the warm welcome we received at the hotel. Everyone we came into contact with was friendly. We were able to check in at 10pm. The rooms were large and very clean. The bathroom was the size of the room that we stayed in on our last trip to London. The breakfast was really tasty and... More

We had a stay of three nights there, and from the minute we arrived, we were welcomed as though we were returning home. Room was immaculate, no ' city odours' just so fresh relaxing,and after a long day, it was just what we needed. Staff are hard working, always smiling, always have time to make you comfortable, and very professional.... More

This is a very nice hotel - helpful staff, very clean and comfortable rooms, good facilities, good food. Room rates are a little expensive but this is the case with London in general, so I would still thoroughly recommend The Alma Hotel, especially for a special occasion.

We had one of the Tonsley View rooms with a large bathtub. The bathroom was nicely appointed, but didn't appear to have a fan, and the floor also seemed a bit filmy as a result. A rather strong mildew-like smell hits you as soon as you walk into the room, and continues to get worse after using the shower/bath. A... More

This is the second time we have stayed at the Alma and it will not be our last. All the staff, reception, dining room, housekeeping and bar, are so friendly and helpful. My mother, who is 88 and has some mobility difficulties was given a fantastic room with wet room on the ground floor. The rooms match any I have... More

A fine cozy gastro-pub just a few walks from the train station. I came here with a wheelchair bound friend and quite lucky enough the place was wheel chair accessible. I had Dover sole for main which I truly enjoyed and a box baked camembert as my starter. The staff were attentive and friendly and always ready to assist my... More

My husband and I planned a trip to London with our close friends. It was quite challenging to choose a place, but the reviews on this site helped me pick The Alma and I'm so glad. Charming staff, right across from a above ground train station, a pub and a great restaurant! The breakfasts were lovely with great french press... More

Arrived in London on a Saturday morning in mid May and went straight to the hotel. Upon arrival, I was really happy as soon as we stepped into the reception. It has a really welcoming feeling with comfy couch and lighting with a really cool mirror in there (you'll see when you go). The staff at The Alma have been... More

Staying at the Alma was definitely one of the best parts of our trip to London! The service was the best quality, from the receptionists (Sorimar, Beatrice, et. al.) to the restaurant servers, to the manager Sean. He goes out of his way to make guests' experience the best one. The rooms are very nice, beautifully decorated, clean, and with... More
