Stayed here for a weekend with friends in room 15/16. A really good choice, this is a very well run, smartly furnished hotel with high levels of customer service from the excellent staff. The rooms are fitted out to a high standard, its the first time I have had a cafetiere and ground coffee available in the room. Lovely big bathroom, quality toiletries and everything spotlessly clean.
I used to produce hotel reports professionally for DeVere and the like but the Alma is up a level from them.
We didn't use the well stocked mini bar (ridiculous prices) or the restaurant (very busy) apart from breakfast which was very good and well served.
My only gripe (and its a me thing, wont bother most people) was the poor drinks range in the bar.
Youngs beers (now brewed in a factory in Bedford) are now very dull and bland so not for me, but I don't mind a proper German/Czech lager even in bottle but nothing is available. As for a nice malt whisky to end the night? Forget it, just a couple of mainstream offerings. We chose to drink elsewhere so revenue lost for the hotel.
The hotel is located directly opposite Wandsworth Town mainline rail station so easy access by train to Waterloo or Victoria in around 15 mins., yet the area is quiet and relaxed with all local amenities (cashpoint, newspapers etc) within yards or the hotel.
An all round very good place to stay - made special by the staff.
