This charming hotel is very conveniently located, being only a five minute walk from the historic town centre, and a short stroll to the river. The rooms were clean and our family of five slept comfortably in a large family room, which was very reasonably priced (breakfast included). The staff were friendly and professional. There is free parking at the... More

We stayed here for 3 nights for its proximity to Town (less than 5 minutes walk) and the Free Parking (note there are only about a dozen or so off-road parking spaces). For that purpose it was fine. The actual decor and condition of the hotel is very dated. Don't go by the polished pictures on the website - it... More

Stayed here 2 years ago when our "regular" hotel was full and was pleasantly surprised. Our second stay was even better. Having lived in York in the 80's I was familiar with the city and the hotel is situated perfectly just before Bootham Bar on St. Mary's. A short and pleasant walk (5mins) to the bottom of the street and... More

We booked 2 nights b+b on a weekend trip to York to visit friends and celebrate a birthday - we booked the Alhambra because of its location near the city centre and its Trip Advisor reviews. What a find - this is a very traditional attractive smallish hotel located on a side street. It is perfect for the river, the... More

perfect for a short break in York, less than 10 mins walk through the museum gardens and you are in the centre of town. Hotel is spotlessly clean, staff very friendly and a cozy bar, Will stay here again on our next visit to York.

We ended up extending our stay by 3 days in York at the last minute and our existing accommodation was booked so we found rooms at the Alhambra Court Hotel. The hotel room was basic (took us awhile to find the switch on the outside of the bathroom to turn on the hot water for the shower). The carpets and... More

Booked this hotel 'blind' for a 2 day trip to York due to its location. We were impressed with the large free car park on arrival and ease of location. All the City centre attractions are a short walk away through a lovely park. The room was a bit dated but as we were immediately above the lounge managed to... More

We went here for my daughter's graduation in York. The hotel is in a lovely spot, easy walk to the Minster and nice part of the city. It is very beautifully furnished in the sitting rooms and the bedrooms were very nice - especially for the price! I would definitelu use it again if I go back
