This place is a gem. Very good value. Clean and pleasant rooms. Breakfast is prepared to order and is excellent! The best thing though is the staff. Everyone we encountered was very pleasant. Unreservedly recommended.

Welcoming, friendly clean hotel. Great location from St Pancras train station as well as lots of amenities.Breakfast was cooked well, the room although smallish was very clean and comfortable. Service was excellent very friendly and welcoming. We will be using this hotel again on our next visit to London and would recommend this to anyone visiting London.

The Alhambra has a series of older houses which have been recently renovated maybe for the 2012 London Olympics - rooms are clean comfortable and practical. Breakfast was right up to the best of British traditions. Bruno went to no end of trouble to assist us in every way despite being busy with numerous guests. His mother in law at... More

I was travelling alone on business and needed a relatively cheap room, near Camden, King's Cross and Euston to make travelling between appointments quick and easy. This was a great find with the best rate secured via booking.com and I was very pleasantly surprised how nice it was. The welcome was warm and checking in quick and easy. My single... More

a basic but very friendly hotel. Reasonable rate. Very quiet, and spotlessly clean. I needed a place to stay around Kings cross and this was perfect. The breakfast eas good. They looked after my luggage.It is a family run hotel. I would go back there rather than to a faceless chain.

Stayed for a night as I was attending a conference. The hotel was perfectly located, minutes from the station down a pleasant, quiet street. The room was spotlessly clean, nicely laid out and perfectly adequate. The breakfast was very good. I usually use one of the larger, functional chain hotels but this was actually nicer and cheaper.
