Alhambra Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Nice small hotel near the kings cross station, nice breakfast. Rooms are small but that is tyipical for london. We had the triple bed that slept 4 with an in room bathroom. The staff are great and kind.

The hotel is not air conditioned and so you have to leave the window open. There are no screens on the window, so this made me uncomfortable for the overnight. The room was very small and we had to get two rooms for my children and me. Sadly, they did not even make sure the two rooms were in the same building! The best part was the excellent breakfast served every morning and the helpful staff when it was time to get a taxi to leave for the airport.

Hotel is as expected. Small rooms with great proximity to the train stations. The nice bonus is the great breakfast room provided on the lower level which includes a full English breakfast.

Overall very quiet and comfortable. Breakfast is delicious. One downer is the shared bathroom as there was only one shower on my floor which can be challenging if ur in a hurry and need a shower.

Second time staying here. Great location and breakfast. Very clean and excellent beds. Will definately stay here again.

The shower and bathroom facility was nice. The room was very small for the price. The stairwell was very steep and narrow, also. But they had a man help take the bags up, so that was nice. Everything was clean and well kept.

Room was comfortable, but the week we were there was very hot. Bathrooms are shared. See below for more details.

Room and bathroom are clean but small. Walls are really thin as I can hear rooms next door and upstairs. Location is very convenient next to train station and the tube. No elevator. Stairs are narrow so I would not recommend elderly people staying there. Staff is very helpful and friendly.

the hotel is clean but it is shared bathroom which is outside . very incon venient . the breakfast was good and the location is good.

good hotel great breakfast but no early check in possible bit disappointing as tired after long flight

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.
