I stay nowhere else in London. Bruno and team always look after me well in their pristine and comfortable hotel. It is particularly well situated and good value for money. In my view it has the advantage of being a family business.

The rooms are small but the trade-offs are cleanliness, helpful staff, and great location. You only sleep in your room but for the price you get a great breakfast as well as a great hotel. The hotel is housed in several adjoining townhomes on a quiet, one-way street with several good pubs within 2 blocks. The hotel also provides free... More

We stayed for 3 nights in May. We found the hotel clean and very centrally located. Breakfast was very good. I had continental breakfast and my husband had the hot breakfast. Great way to start day. We would definitely stay again

My wife and I have just returned from a pleasant 4 night stay at the Alhambra. The bedrooms are in two buildings, the main one housing the reception area and breakfast room. We were allocated room 13 on the third floor in the adjacent building. There is no lift and the stairs are rather narrow which may be of concern... More

Stayed at this hotel with my partner when I was on business. Hotel was lovely, great staff and facilities! They let me check in early. Breakfast was superb! Great location, minutes walk from lots of restaurants and places of interest. We will return the next time we are in the city. Thank You.

We stayed 1 night April 23 2015. We were impressed by the friendly reception and the smart clean rooms. The manager accommodated our early departure for Eurostar and said we could take a full breakfast early.The situation so close to St Pancras was ideal for us. Our room was small but we had a very good shower with excellent fluffy... More

I stayed here for 3 nights for business. Overall it was a decent though unmemorable stay. I picked it because I wanted to be close to Kings Cross. So the area is convenient though does not have much character and is busy. The young men at the reception were friendly and efficient but I didn't really deal with them. Which... More
