Stayed at the Alhambra because of its location. Arrived in London via Kings Cross Station and departed from St Pancras. It was an easy walk across the street. The location couldn't have been better. Our triple room was spacious, clean and quiet. It was good to have breakfast at the hotel - it saved us trying to find a good... More

I stayed at the Alhambra Hotel with my young daughter. The location of the hotel - a couple of minutes walk away from St Pancras/Kings Cross Stations - was ideal for exploring the city centre. The hotel staff were professional and friendly. We had a first floor room at the back of the hotel. The room was small but comfortable,... More

This small hotel is is less than 5 minutes' walk from Kings Cross - St Pancras. There are plenty of hotels in this area but probably very few as good as this one - tiny rooms, OK, but very clean - friendly staff and a better-than-average breakfast make this a real bargain. Staying in a hotel as a solo woman... More

I was looking for a clean reasonably priced B&B near St. Pancras station where I arrived from France on the Eurostar. I found the Alhambra to be just perfect. Spotlessly clean, absolutely spotlessly clean, very helpful and welcoming staff, excellent location for me near the station and Underground, everything you could want for breakfast and plenty of it. I could... More

Very friendly staff and excellent location near King's Cross. Convenient if you are arriving/departing via the Eurostar. Rooms are extremely basic with bathrooms so tiny one cannot turn around in them. Decided to laugh through the difficulties of showering in a thimble. Breakfast was typical for this type of hotel.

The most important at hotel reception is to find friendly staffs to help you to get what you asked for. Therefore, Alhambra Hotel has friendly reception staff, manager and other staffs. However, the hotel is in good location. In addition to that, the room, which I got, is so nice and clean.
