The hotel is just a short walk from Kings Cross Station which is really convenient. The room is not big but it is clean and cozy enough for me. Free breakfast in the morning is awesome too. There is quite a wide range of food to choose from and people were really friendly and helpful too.

I spent 6 nights at the Alhambra for a course, and had an excellent stay. I had a single en-suite room on the first floor, with breakfast included. The hotel is less than a minute's walk from Kings Cross tube, and you can see Kings Cross St Pancras main station from the front step, even though the hotel isn't on... More

Just meters from busy Euston Rd and St Pancras Station this small family run hotel offers peace from the bustle. Excellent breakfast and welcoming staff made me feel at home. Very small but comfortable rooms could be supported with a sitting room for a rainy day option but it met my needs (Pub up the road was a very good... More

The room was a little small but more than adequate. It was warm and clean and had a fair amount of storage space with very comfortable beds, so we got a good nights rest. The breakfast in the morning was plentiful and freshly cooked and was served by friendly and helpful staff. The added bonus is that it is so... More

I enjoyed my stay at Alhambra Hotel very much. Very quiet except a (really little) noise from the underground, but that is a matter of the underground, not of the hotel. Very good breakfast, I slept very well and good WI-FI everywhere. I will surely come back!

I had a single ensuite room for one night and arriving at Alhambra was such a pleasant surprise. I booked the room fairly last minute at £100 a night (cheap for London Zone 1) and was very happy to be greeted by friendly reception, followed by a spotless room with a well-scrubbed bathroom - quite a treat after a long...
