I wanted a hotel within walking distance from Alexandra Palace so I wouldn't have to make the rush for the last train after a concert and picked this one. The neighborhood around it is very cute with lots of shopping and also lots of bus stops, and it was very easy to get into the area of London with the... More

As I was working at ally pally and needed somewhere close by, and better value than some, but it was not the greatest place, its very down market now, and needs a make over badly, and a good clean, it was noisy with other guests, and general uncaring , the breakfasts where so so, could have been better, only good...

After reading some of the reviews on here we were really apprehensisve about arriving at the hotel. We were doing an event at Alexandra Palace and needed a place to stay for three nights. We were fearing the worst so expectations were really low. It was ok. The room was dated and could have been cleaner. The facilities were basic.... More

1st room, shower was terrible no pressure behind it more like a slow trickle and cold. Floor of room was unbelievably loud!! My bed was a double and I think every spring in the mattress had gone. Room in general pretty grim and grotty. Room 2. Cold and dirty, had a shower in one corner of the room which was... More

I stayed in the hotel for the first time in January this year as I visited an event at Alexandra Palace and couldn't be bothered to commute each day from a hotel in the city. I read many reviews of the hotel before so arrived there with mixed emotions. The staff is very friendly, check in was done within minutes.... More

Place needs a good clean. Not worth the money. Go somewhere else! We aren't fussy at all but this place was bad. Didn't eat the breakfast so can't comment on that. Wouldn't be sure on eating there anyway. Grim.

This is a budget hotel, almost certainly catering for people also going to the nearby Alexandra Palace. There are several other hotels along the same road but they are a bit more expensive. I had a single room facing the road, not much traffic noise but could very easily hear people talking outside, even so I got a reasonable nights... More

My husband and i stayed here for 1 night while the darts world champs were on at the Ally Pally in December and must say that the hotel itself is basic but for the price is more than reasonable and had the benefit of private parking which is excellent. Location of hotel is great for the Ally Pally. Did not... More

Well, how much can you expect for a room around £45. The room is reasonably clean, it's reasonably quiet, and there's a shower that works with proper water pressure. For our room, toilet was down the hallway. The reception is very friendly. The breakfast is mediocre, but then again, you didn't check into a five-star. The National is fine if... More
