I will admit that at first glance, I wasn't sure - but this was a perfect stay. Down the block from Kings Cross tube station...restaurants everywhere - from a Costa down the street to McDonalds two blocks away...upscale places all over and pubs galore. The room was tiny - but most hotels like this are. It was clean, clean, clean...the linens fresh and crisp...electric teakettle in the room...excellent breakfast in the morning...a super staff - so helpful and really pleasant all the time. Granted, there's no elevator - and we haven't got the best knees - but they accommodated us as best they could with easily accessible rooms. I'd recommend this to everyone. We felt very safe in the neighborhood - and had a great time walking and exploring the back streets. It was bit noisy early in the evening - it is a big city - but that's the beauty of the neighborhood. I loved it.

Dear Guest,
We are really pleased you found the Alhambra Hotel to offer in your opinion the PERFECT STAY!
From the LOCATION, right next to the popular Kings Cross Station, to the CLEANLINESS OF THE ROOM, we are delighted you LOVED IT!
As a small independent family venture for over 45 years, we have learned very much along the way! We do believe that providing a GENUINE, FRIENDLY SERVICE has been very important to our success! We are NOT part of a major hotel chain that believes spending huge amount of money in marketing and advertising is the key to success! Instead, we concentrate on the simple basics...CLEAN COMFORTABLE ROOM, FRIENDLY STAFF SERVICE and a BREAKFAST that suits everyone's taste.

From all the small team at the Alhambra Hotel ….a BIG THANK YOU for choosing to stay with us!

Kind Regards

Hotel manager

The hotel is in a great location near St Pancras station and connected to many tube lines, or a walking distance from Leicester Square. The room we had was small but adequate, and the bathroom was quite large even though the description called it compact.

Our main problem was that there is no air conditioning so we had to open the window to get air, but then it was impossible to sleep for the noise from the street. When we booked we didn’t think to ask if they had rooms that weren’t facing the street.

Staff were friendly and helpful and breakfast was quite good. Overall I’d recommend this hotel if they have quiet rooms.

Stayed: October 2018

Dear Daphne,
Thank you for your recent comments on TripAdvisor.
We appreciate the fact that you found the Alhambra Hotel to offer a FRIENDLY, HELPFUL SERVICE with a GOOD BREAKFAST.
Unfortunately, as we offer a GREAT LOCATION due to the proximity to Kings Cross Station ( 2 minutes walk ), the noise levels are out of our control. We are always happy to assist guests and provide them with a quieter accommodation if necessary.
We sincerely hope to be of assistance in the near future.
Kind regards
Hotel manager

I booked rooms for thurs 21st and sunday 30th September 2018 as I was travelling by eurostar and wished to be near the terminal.
Both en suite rooms were spotlessly clean , beds really comfortable . Rooms a little small but facilities perfectly adequate and price booked very competitive .
Staff most welcoming and helpful , as my eurostar connection was at the ungodly hour of 5.40am leaving the hotel at 4am I was obviously too early for breakfast but the night receptionist very kindly offered to make me tea and toast
My room on the way back was a ground floor double en suite located at 22 Argyle St just over the road from the hotels main reception. This room was also excellent
I would highly recommend this hotel for it's location , price , cleanliness and helpful efficient staff.

A small hotel close to Kings Cross Station. I found it very expensive for the size but then again accommodation in London is not cheap. The room was clean, the bathroom tiny, the wifi very slow. One the credit side the breakfast was good and the position in relation to transport very good.

Room Tip: Alhambra has two hotels opposite each other.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your recent comments about the Alhambra Hotel on TripAdvisor.
We are sorry to hear that you found the Alhambra Hotel expensive but we do offer a CLEAN ROOM and as you mentioned a GOOD BREAKFAST served every morning.
We also offer a second to none LOCATION, just next to Kings Cross Station and St Pancras International.
We hope you give the Alhambra Hotel another go in the future. Please remember to book directly with the Hotel as it tends to be cheaper.
Kind Regards
Hotel Manager

We stayed overnight at Alhambra hotel. It is located on a quiet street, small but very clean. What impressed us the most is the hotel's flexibility in terms of checking-in time. Our son arrived first at about 12:30pm and he was able to check in early and wait for us in the hotel room. We feel very grateful.

Room Tip: The hotel does not have a elevator. One should probably take this into consideration if carrying luggage upstairs is an issue.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for the positive review on TripAdvisor.
We are delighted you were impressed with the Alhambra Hotel Customer Service and the fact that you were able to check-in earlier than the guaranteed time of 1.30pm. Unlike some other hotels in the area that charge extra for an earlier check-in, we do try our best to ensure that rooms are ready before 1.30pm and WITHOUT A CHARGE. We do believe that Customer Service is very important from the very first moment the guest arrives. Providing a CLEAN ROOM and also a DECENT BREAKFAST, has always been very important to us!

From all the team that looks after you...THANK YOU!

Kind Regards
Hotel Manager
