It was a great hotel, wonderful location, clean and great family owned staff. The customer service was incredible, all were very personable and it made our stay that much better. The rooms are not large, but it just worked great for my husband and me.

Located very close to Kings Cross St. Pancras station and underground, the rooms are comfortable, clean, very small but modern. The busy little hotel serves an ample full English breakfast and is surprisingly quiet.

From previous experience of small London hotels I had no great expectations of the Alhambra. However the room was very clean with modern shower etc. Breakfast was a full English well cooked and presented. Had a good night's sleep with no noise even though the hotel is in central London. Very convenient for St Pancras and Kings Cross (5 minute... More

I always try to stay close to St Pancras and have stayed in a number of surrounding hotels/ B and Bs. I stayed here Sept 2014 for one night and was very satisfied- this will be the hotel I use in future. My single room -12- on the ground floor was comfortable and clean, bigger than I expected and had... More

My husband chose this hotel based on it's location and previous reviews, the Alhambra Hotel didn't disappoint when we stayed for two nights back in May, as we needed to be located close to Kingscross station (which was only a minutes walk away). The staff were helpful, friendly and informative and made us feel very welcome on arrival. Our room... More

Sorry I can't agree with the latest reviews. My room number 17 in the basement was the size of a shoebox. The shower - if you can call it that was more like a cubicle; and water spilt onto the rest of the bathroom floor and the toilet. Not nice! I was seriously claustrophobic. Luckily there was a window in... More

Stayed at the Alhambra because of its location. Arrived in London via Kings Cross Station and departed from St Pancras. It was an easy walk across the street. The location couldn't have been better. Our triple room was spacious, clean and quiet. It was good to have breakfast at the hotel - it saved us trying to find a good... More
