I stayed here for a night with my friend. We arrived before check in & were allowed to leave our cases. When we got back after our day out, the cases had been taken to our room. The room was clean with very comfortable beds. There were tea & coffee making facilities, a TV & hairdryer & a bathroom with... More

We had seen the Alhambra advertised on our French guide. We only have compliments to make for the very nice receptionists and all the personnel who are very devoted but also very kind. The rooms are very nicely furnished and you can always rely on a clean room when you come back from a jaunt in the city. If you... More

Had a triple room, was small, but clean and was all we needed to sleep. Included breakfast was good, and location to stations was excellent. Very personal front desk. Was able to check into our rooms early.

Stayed at Alhambra Hotel Saturday 20th August 2016. Tip. Book direct for the best rates! Excellent very clean. Very well maintained hotel very near Kings Cross Station. London Euston Station is an 8-10 minute walk away. Stayed in a single room. Beautifully clean and tidy. Great secondary double glazing so got a great nights sleep. 24 hour reception. All members...

Good place to stay. Clean and tidy. Small rooms but what else would you expect in London for this price. Near the station. Lots of stairs up or down to some rooms so check if you have mobility problems before hand what room they have given you. Didn't try breakfast as had to leave early to a course and it... More

I stayed just for a night and it was an ideal stopover. The rooms are small basic and adequate . I had an attached bath with a small tv study table tea and coffee machine and a comfortable bed in a small space barely 7 by 7 feet I think. But I just needed a nights rest and take the... More

Good price and excellent location. Close to the tube station. Fan supplied in the room which was very welcome on this warm weekend. Rooms are clean and tidy. Breakfast in the morning was lovely and fresh. All in all, an excellent price for a comfortable stay in London, with the bonus of an included breakfast.

The Alhambra is a small property located only a half-block from both St. Pancras and King's Cross stations, which is why we chose it. The hotel is small and although there are modern furnishings, it is an old-fashioned hotel with narrow hall-ways and creaky stairs and tiny rooms in which there is no room to swing a cat. It's clean... More

I originally stayed at this location due to its proximity to the train stations, which I would be using. A quick walk to and from St Pancras / Kings Cross. This was a great choice as we were heading from Paris to Scotland with a stopover in London. The room was comfortable and the breakfast was great. I was grateful... More
