A great little hotel and a good price, staff were very friendly.

Breakfast was good too. A English Breakfast with toast, cereal etc if you wanted it.

A few minutes walk from Kings Cross Station.

Room was small but clean, fresh and quiet.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 2 and it was very quiet

Our first time at the Alhambra but we have already booked again for a future date. We booked online in advance and were glad we did - the hotel often fills up early. Our flight arrived in Heathrow and we took the Piccadilly Line to Kings Cross and it was just across the street and down a little on Argyle. Easy to find. ... Martine greeted us with a smile and directed us to our room (#2 - across the street and downstairs). For a budget hotel in the Kings Cross district, we thought this was an excellent choice. Although small (like most rooms in Europe) the room was very clean and the WiFi & TV worked well. The next morning we enjoyed a tasty English breakfast prepared by their excellent cook - Frank. Bruno, the manager said hello and made us feel like he was happy to have us at his hotel. It was a good experience, on top of the fact that it was so close to the station where we took our train north. Even our housekeeper greeted us in the hall as we departed. ... We were glad we followed the many others on Trip Adviser who gave this a big thumbs up!

Room Tip: We were glad to have booked the En Suite (95 GBP) for a little more room. ... The walls seemed a lit...

This was our second stay at the Alhambra. We were really pleased with the hotel, all the staff were very nice and friendly. We stayed in a room across the road from the reception, it was very clean, the bed was comfortable and there was no noise. It had a kettle and makings for tea and coffee and a hairdryer. The breakfast was lovely, we had the full English, you can have continental if you want. We stayed for two nights and were able to leave our case at the hotel on the last day while we did more sightseeing and collected it in the evening on our way through to catch our train from Euston. I have recommended this hotel to friends which can be a problem, but they also enjoyed their stay. Thank you all for a lovely stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 4 in the building on the opposite road to the reception, at the back on the ground...

I have no complaint at all of my short stays which could be the best of my 2wks travel in London, i'm quite  impressive of your professional customer service on attractions ticketing and travelling as you choose to spontaneously approach to customer's feeling instead of standing away from them which is warm and really helpful. I'm glad and definitely willing to have the next or more delightful experiences discovered from you :)  Best wishes

I needed a place for a business trip and this place seemed to fit the bill. It is so close to Kings Cross, the price was right and when I arrived the en-suite room I had was spotless. The en-suite itself was bright, clean and functional. Breakfast was a choice of English or Continental and the English breakfast I had set me up for the day. This hotel will be top of my list next time I am in London.
