My husband and I were visiting London for a few days and decided to stay at the Alhambra hotel. We knew it was small beforehand but appreciated the location and the free breakfast was an added bonus. A few things to keep in mind regarding conveniences: 1) The rooms are a tight squeeze 2) Restrooms & showers are communal 3)... More

Really convenient location near the train station and the tube. The room was small, modern and comfortable. The room and bathroom are clean and nice. Never made it to breakfast but I am sure that was good as well

Very easy access to Kings Cross/St Pancras stations - only about 5 mins walk...just cross the road in front of St Pancras station and you're there. For such a central location the hotel was surprisingly quiet - and I had a fantastic nights sleep. The rooms are compact, spotlessly clean and decorated in a modern style - very comfortable. The...

Our expectations for Alhambra was to have a well located, neat and cleanly accommodation for our stay in London. Expectations were met. We were delighted with the breakfast (best sausages we had in all our Full English Breakfasts in two weeks). The room was very small and felt somewhat insecure (There was a giant window right up next to street... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for the valuable feedback on TripAdvisor. We are pleased we have met your expectations with WELL LOCATED, CLEAN AND NEAT ACCOMMODATION together with a DECENT BREAKFAST. As mentioned previously on TripAdvisor, we do not sacrifice QUALITY FOR PRICE and therefore all ingredients such as sausages used, come STRAIGHT FROM THE FARM BUTCHERS and not from supermarkets....

Stayed here after arriving at Kings Cross the night before & catching the Eurostar the morning after. Easy 5 minute walk with cases across the road to both stations. As said before, rooms are tiny, as are the bathrooms, but it is central London so thats to be expected. Breakfast was excellent, cereals, toast & jams etc, full English breakfast... More

We stayed at this hotel on Tuesday night when visiting London for a theatre and shopping break. The hotel is one of the cleanest places we have ever stayed with the friendliest staff and a fantastic location with all the facilities you need. I cannot rate this hotel highly enough.

If you're looking for a convenient, friendly, value-for-money hotel, then look no further than the Alhambra. Although the room was small, it was spotlessly clean and perfectly adequate with excellent facilities - free wi-fi, kettle, lovely shower, comfortable bed with two pillows and an extra blanket, a safe for valuables and windows that open! Full English breakfast is included in... More

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.
