Alhambra Court Hotel
Ranked #9 of 47 Hotels in York
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 15, 2009

Just returned from a two day shopping break in York having stayed at the Alhambra. First thing to mention is that we booked on line via the hotel website, which lets you choose your room..or so we thought! We had chosen a 1st floor double room (room 14)....we ended up with a ground floor twin (pushed together to make a double). The room was large enough but 'tired' and had a musty smell..indeed the windows were wide open on arrival, which was strange given that the outside temperature was so cold! The room remained at that temparature for much of our stay as the heating was either off or not working.

The only saving grace was the breakfast, which was lovely and served very quickly.

The location is great but the hotel is very tired.

Stayed: December 2009, traveled as a couple

Stayed here for a week with two friends. Couldn't be beat. Walking distance to all York attractions. Breakfast was great. Dinner menu looked good but we didn't eat here. Would strongly recommend this hotel.

The hotel is in a great location, an easy walk from the train station and a short walk into town.

This is probably the only good thing I have to say however. The decor was extremely outdated and there was an 'old, fuzzy' smell about the place. Our room was dark and although felt clean was very basic and old fashioned.

The rooms had no sound proofing and we could hear other's TVs and doors shutting.

The breakfast was reasonable and the service was friendly enough.

The main problem for me with this hotel was the cost compared to the quality. We paid £90 per night for what was very basic indeed. Unfortunately there is so much competition at similar prices in York that the hotel can probably justify charging this amount. However if I were going to York again, I would probably take a risk and go somewhere else rather than stay here again.
