The Alhambra is very convenient for St Pancras International / Kings Cross, a very short walk across Euston Road. It is a well run with pleasant helpful staff and is well maintained. Good simple but modern bathroom. Nice breakfast room and a very good range of breakfast for a small hotel.

We had a very enjoyable stay at the Alhambra hotel. Very convenient location for King's Cross and St. Pancras stations. Rooms were clean and comfortable, apparently recently refurbished. Staff efficient and helpful. Good breakfast. Would definitely stay there again.

We were very pleased with our recent five night stay at the hotel. Problems experienced with safety deposit box / TV were promptly rectified when reported. Excellent service. All staff courteous and accommodating. We would not hesitate to stay there on our next trip to London.

We stayed for two nights last week, and were pleasantly surprised! The rooms were clean, spotless and warm. They were surprisingly quiet, considering the busy main road is just 100 meters away. The beds were comfortable. The Breakfast was excellent, and the staff were friendly and helpful. With Kings Cross & St.Pancras a mere five minutes away this was an... More

I have stayed at this hotel several times before and have provided detailed reviews and photos of the various rooms and buildings for guests - please refer to these if of interest.

Only 5 minutes from Kings Cross, it is sited in a quiet road. Our room was spotless and comfortable although the bathroom was very small. They ran out of bacon, sausage, mushrooms at breakfast time which was annoying on the first day and second day they brought the cooked breakfast before we finished eating cereal. It was amazingly quiet and... More

Stayed here recently for a few nights. It is clean & tidy & does what it says on the tin, for putting your head down & getting a decent breakfast cooked for you it's spot on. It is small, but then you only need somewhere to put your head down and shower after a day's sightseeing. Would recommend & stay... More

As everywhere in London the rooms are small but you know that up front. Everything you need is there though including coffee maker and a safe. The location is terrific as it is close to Kings Cross and St Pancreas and therefore close to the train to Gatwick. The breakfast was great and held us for quite a number of... More
