a nice trip

With a great location (walk as tube), we were able to reach every city's center of interest : North's as South's. Museums as shopping streets : It's never too far away. Reception was very helpful in order to have the best tourism quality/price.

Lovely experience, would definitely one of my go-to choices if I needed to stay in the area again!

An excellent experience although a wee bit pricey. Receptionist was really accommodating in letting me leave my luggage in the allocated room when the room was not quite ready. As I have a bad back, I was relieved that the room was located (almost) on the ground floor. A big thank you to the gentleman who offered to help me with my luggage up the small flight of stairs without me asking. Would stay here again if I had to stay near the Kings Cross St Pancras station.

Pricey but that's London!

Quite expensive for what you get but it is just around the corner from King's Cross Station which makes it perfect for arriving and/or departing London and for getting around on the Underground. The room was small but that's to be expected - I can't imagine what a large room would cost in London! Breakfast was OK (ends at 9am though - no sleeping in here) and we left our luggage whilst we wandered the streets before a late evening flight.

Great Location

Just across from St Pancras International station, and Metro line, and easy walk to London Euston for long distance trains. Had to carry our heavy suitcases up two flights of winding stairs, and room, and bathroom was very small in comparison to others we stayed at in U.K. Full English breakfast was good.

Bedroom 8 nothing like the piuctures

We are in the smallest hotel room I have ever stayed in don't nothing like pictures.Tv no remote after hour found old remote that sort of works. Picture of dressing table and chair reality is thin shelf little wider than radiator. Double bed you can get on both sides reality is you have to climb over . This hotel is so close to stations don't be fooled by their $5 car trip that doesn't turn up .Just ask for map .Pedestrian distance a lot shorter than by taxi if you know. Food report next and photos

Excellent basic hotel

Coveniently situated in a site street close to St Pancras and Kings Cross stations, the Underground and numerous bus services. Nothing fancy just the basics done well. Inclusive breakfast was served very fast even though they were very busy.

Has been better

Have been at the Alhambra a couple of times, but this time they moved me across the street (the hotel is across multiple buildings) to the top floor room, which was very small and noisy from other rooms and the street below. Apart from the fact that you have to climb 4 stairs, also items like a shower with mould and only limited water didn't make this stay very good. As such the three stars are generous ...

5 day horror trip

First of all, the images/pictures are misleading. On checking in found out that it is more a B&B rather than a hotel. The rooms are tiny (understatement). Also, extremely noisy and pretty rough neighbourhood. Good luck if you stay here. Positives are that staff are Friendly and the location is good.
