The rooms are small but the location is perfect - 1 minute to Kings Cross. Bloomsbury is on the doorstep. The cooked breakfast is very good. Ask Bruno about the apartment they have to rent - I would have loved an apartment like that when I lived in London. Compact but very functional with a little terrace, a full kitchen... More

This is a very clean boutique hotel across the road from St Pancras/Kings Cross Station. Very handy to transport but the rooms are very small. It' sock for a one nighter if you need to be close to international train station.

Very nice hotel, great breakfast and great service. The room was a little tight and the television had some problems not that it was needed. little noisy but in the heart of London you can't really expect anything else.

Great hotel within metres from Kings Cross Station but could barely hear the traffic from the busy main road! Only downside is that the room was typical London small but comfortable and clean, would definitely recommend a stay!

The Alhambra Hotel is a great value for its location! I had a Eurostar train from St Pancras station so I stayed overnight for one night at the Alhambra. The woman at the front desk was very helpful and informative. My single room was small, as expected for Europe in that location, but it was clean and had all the... More

Read reviews & was worried about noise so phoned in advance for a quiet room. Although full, they gave me a room looking over the back which was much appreciated. You can hear the underground but to be expected so close to the station. Nice touch was a glass of orange waiting on check-in. Aldo great to be able to... More

Depends what you're looking for, but the Alhambra has its pros and cons like everything else. It couldn't be closer to the Eurostar station which made for a quick and easy commute...the room was tiny (double ensuite) and the bathroom was smaller! I had to stand diagonally in the shower to bring my hands up to wash my hair -... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for placing your comments on TripAdvisor.

We arrived and checked in with a lady who rather wanted to be somewhere else. We went up to the (very hot) third floor noticing that there was a toilet and separated shower on the floor.

Staying in Bloomsbury

Neighborhood Profile
Bloomsbury
Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance access to many of London's most popular attractions. It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated museums, including the must-see British Museum. Despite an understandable popularity with students, tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury retain a quiet, residential feel year round and throughout the week.
