Stayed for one night. Room was ample size, very clean and quiet. Faint rumble of trains but nothing to keep you awake - not sure about LG floor. Good breakfast, much better than was expecting for the price. Very friendly staff. Would definitely stay again! Great location and only 2 minute walked from Kings Cross so easy to get across...

Found this great place last minute via a booking website but actually got a better price on their own page. We were given a basement room in the 2nd building, but it was light and spacious and even had its own little yard. All expected amenities. Tea/coffee making. Good shower. Comfy bed. Left luggage option on day of departure. Location... More

Just two minutes from St. Pancras and London Kings Cross railway stations. This b & b is a delight. On-suite shower and toilet, tea making facilities, safe in room, English breakfast included. Then delightful staff and spotlessly clean rooms makes this a great place to stay.

This family run hotel is indeed spotless with rooms of a decent size, having all necessary amenities for a very good price including free wifi. Located a few steps from St Pancras station and the Eurostar, it is amazingly quiet in a small one way street, although served by many bus routes and 2 tube stops. Excellent breakasts (English, continental... More

I stayed at the Alhambra Hotel for 2 nights earlier this month, with 2 friends. We had read the previous reviews, mostly positive, on Tripadvisor. I have to say, we were not disappointed.

Very conveniently situated a few yards from St. Pancras and Kings Cross stations. The rooms are small but adequate and everywhere is spotlessly clean. Bathroom also small but adequate. Good value - approx. £90/£100 a night. Comfortable bed and quiet for sleeping. Breakfast good - full English, vegetarian or continental are all available included in the room price. Good wi-fi...

Staying in Bloomsbury

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.
