The Alhambra Hotel built in the early 1840's for lodging purposes, represents one of the last landmarks of the Pre-Victorian Period Set in Kings Cross, an area which was once a village called Battle Bridge. It is surrounded with historical landmarks, such as the famous Kings Cross Train Station built in 1851 which at the time was the largest Railway Station in England. Over the last 50 years The Alhambra Hotel in King's Cross London, has established itself as the premier budget Bed and Breakfast (B&B) within the King's Cross / St. Pancras area. The Alhambra Hotel offers comfortable refurbished rooms, with a complimentary tea and coffee making facilities in every room, a full English or Continental Breakfast and WiFi for a very affordable / cheap price. The Alhambra Hotel has been run by the Valoti family for over half a century, originally by Francesco and Martine and now also aided by their daughter and son-in-law Sonia and Bruno. During this period the hotel has hosted guests who wanted to see local sites such as the British Museum and British Library or take advantage of the fantastic public transport links. This has been added to with the opening of the new St. Pancras Eurostar Station which is very near and easily within walking distance. When seen as an overall package the combination of affordable and comfortable rooms, with a now world famous breakfast cooked (by the Owner himself!), free WiFi and amazing location, makes the Alhambra Hotel the obvious choice of accommodation within the Kings Cross / St Pancras area.

Supportive Professional hub

I needed accommodation easy to reach from airport and close to a university location for a weeklong engagement. The hotel Alhambra is centrally located and in easy walking distance to many professional locations. The rooms are small, but effectively organized, clean and with good wireless access. Breakfast is a great start into the day. The staff at front desk, in restaurant and room service are highly professional and competent and always helpful. I will certainly return to the Hotel Alhambra for my next travel to London be it professional or personal.

Small Is Beautiful

Stayed over night midweek. Staff very friendly and helpful. Room small but clean and comfortable. Try to remember your key if you you're not ensuite and need the bathroom in the middle of the night... although I've no idea what sort of idiot would risk balancing the door on the latch... ahem... anyway... corridors and stairs very narrow and steep, so less able bodied persons with heavy bags (no lift) beware! If you just want somewhere to sleep at a reasonable price and with an edible breakfast, PERFECT!
