Friends of mind recommended this hotel to us as I was planning a trip from the US to Switzerland with stops in London and Paris. I am so glad they did. My wife and I stayed here twice in November 2016. We arrived at Heathrow in the early evening Friday night and made our way to Kings Cross via the...

I cannot fault this hotel at all - it's room rates are very reasonable for the location and everything was exactly as I expected. The room was cosy, fresh and clean as if it had just been decorated. Breakfast was excellent as were the staff and service. Even the WiFi was fast and free. Couldn't be happier.

The room was small, but clean and comfortable. The price was appropriate, the staff were very courteous. The location was perfect. Since I mostly just slept here, it was fine for my needs. If you're going to need to hang out a lot in a hotel, it might be too small for you. The English breakfast was very nice: Tea,...

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...

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.
