Alhambra Court Hotel
Ranked #8 of 47 Hotels in York
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 8, 2012

I've just returned today from a two night stay at the Alhambra Court and it was lovely. The room was clean, the bed comfortable, the bathroom was a good size with white fluffy towels. Breakfast was excellent, kept me full up till dinner! The hotel is in a good location just a few minutes from York's city centre. I would definitely stay there again if I visit York again.

The twin room No 23 was very comfortable particularly for 2 friends who wanted a bit of space. The bathroom was very modern. We made use of the lounges in the evenings, and had an excellent meal on 2 nights. Easy location, clean and comfortable.Very helpful and friendly staff.

Room Tip: Room 23 was fine. Ground floor and not noisy.

We stayed at the Alhambra court for 3 nights over the bank holiday weekend. The hotel is in a fantastic location and had it's own parking which is essential for a town centre hotel. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the breakfasts were good. All the staff were very friendly. Our room, overlooking the parking at the back, was on the 2nd floor and was very quiet.
Our only gripe was that they stopped serving breakfast at 9.30 a.m. which meant we didn't get much of a lie in for a weekend.
We didn't try the restaurant as there were so many places in town to eat.
This hotel is in a great location only 5 minutes walk from the town centre.

The Alhambra was located close to the town centre and included a car park at the rear. Another surprise was the lift which was greatly appreciated. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good. Staff were friendly. The hotel was only a 5 minute walk from the centre of town. All in all, a good hotel.

Overnight stay in York with friends. Room was clean and comfortable, and about the right price for the quality of hotel. Breakfast was OK with good service from the staff.

Hotel communal areas are very nice, and the large car park is a bonus so close to York city centre.

If looking for a no nonsense but clean hotel I would recommend the Alhambra, if you want the wow factor perhaps pay a bit more and go elsewhere

stayed at the alhambra with my partner and although the hotel itself was lovely and york is such a lovely city, i could just tell the lady at the reception desk was not in a particularly good mood when asking how her week had been we just got the reply 'long'! we had dinner in the restaurant which was lovely and very good value although the waitress looked like she had been put in the restaurant with no training, then when asking how she was got the reply 'tired'!
will not be going back to such an unprofessional place!

We had a lovely warm welcome on reception, our room was at the front but extremely nice and quiet cul de sac with cctv cameras in car park which was an added bonus, made us feel very secure with leaving our car there :D . The room was lovely and warm, with very nice victorian features such as the old shutters still working to the bay window, very nice linen on the bed fantastic HUGE Sony tv to watch many channels. Bathroom was clean and tidy with fluffy towels. Staff were extremely friendly on reception and even delivered us extra pillows we requested, nothing was too much bother...thank you alhambra court hotel we will be back!!! The cooked breakfast was nice and as a vegetarian I was sooooo pleased I could have a cooked breakfast all cooked separate and away from meat...a rare find and delicious too with veggie sausages, wish we had dined at the restaurant for supper instead of going into town....thank you so much, a lovely trip lovely room for a very good price and literally 5 minutes (if that) walk into town and the cathedral.

We are definitely planning to return.

Room Tip: Our room at the front of the building was very quiet as it is a cul de sac so no passing traffic
