I have no complaint at all of my short stays which could be the best of my 2wks travel in London, i'm quite  impressive of your professional customer service on attractions ticketing and travelling as you choose to spontaneously approach to customer's feeling instead of standing away from them which is warm and really helpful. I'm glad and definitely willing to have the next or more delightful experiences discovered from you :)  Best wishes

I needed a place for a business trip and this place seemed to fit the bill. It is so close to Kings Cross, the price was right and when I arrived the en-suite room I had was spotless. The en-suite itself was bright, clean and functional. Breakfast was a choice of English or Continental and the English breakfast I had set me up for the day. This hotel will be top of my list next time I am in London.

The hotel is very good value for money, small but clean warm rooms, extremely pleasant staff, and in a perfect location. One suggestion : A towel rail in the bathroom would have been useful. Breakfast was fine with a good choice of options. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: We were in the annex opposite, at the back and on the ground floor. There was no noise from the stre...

I was looking for an inexpensive hotel for an overnight stay on business in Central London and stumbled across the Alhambra via Trip Advisor, and was very pleased I did.

The hotel is so convenient to rail travellers as it sits on a road just opposite Kings Cross and less than 10 minutes walk from Euston, yet was surprisingly quiet for such a central location. The main hotel contains the reception area and a basement dining room (where breakfast is served), but there are additional rooms in building number 20 over the road, which is where I stayed (after agreeing to swap rooms with a lady who had arrived at the same time as me but wanted to avoid a ground floor room).

The bedroom was small but had everything I needed, including free Wi-Fi. The single bed was comfortable and the shower was spotlessly clean and nice and powerful.

Breakfast was a choice of Full English (which I had) or Continental plus toast, preserves, juice and choice of tea, coffee or hot chocolate, brought to you at your table. Staff were efficient and friendly. I expect that the breakfast room will run out of tables if all guests came down at the same time, so you may be asked to share tables with others at busy times.

The hotel was very reasonably priced for such a central location and I have no problems in recommending it as a reasonably priced budget hotel.

This hotel is in a fantastic location. Whilst my single room was small it was clean and met all
My needs. The staff at the hotel were fantastic, really helpful and so friendly. Would highly recommend it as value for money and location location location

As other reviewers have said, the rooms are small and the en suite could not take more than one person at a time, but as a budget hotel convenient to the West End and Theatreland it takes some beating. The staff are vey friendly, helpful and constantly smiling. The breakfast is very good. I would happily use this hotel again and recommend it to anybody.
