Clean, basic, practical - just what we needed!”

I stayed at the Alhambra for one night with two children (aged 4 and 11) and we had a triple room (3 single beds). The room was clean and spacious enough for the three of us. The beds were comfortable and the shower was good (not always the case with more affordable hotels). We were in a ground floor room and could hear the rumbling of the metro in the distance which was not at all a problem for us but could be an issue if you are more sensitive to noise. The location was perfect at just a stone's throw from King's Cross/ St Pancras station and I would absolutely book this hotel again the next time I am in London with kids!

It's a small hotel very close to Kings Cross and St. Pancreas. The stuff welcomed us very friendly. The whole hotel is clean and we felt comfort from the very first second. The stair and the rooms are small, which is typical for London, but you find everything you need. The bed was comfortable, the room clean and modern. Even the toilet and the shower on the floor were good. But you need to find a good time space to shower or the water will have difficulties to flow away. Breakfast was good and we never left hungry.

Hotel was spotlessly clean and staff very friendly. Room was very small but had everything you needed. Shared a shower and toilet with other rooms but that was clearly stated. Breakfast was lovely but really needed someone to tell you where the food was. Hot food was in completely different part of a divided room from the continental breakfast. This hotel was ideal for one night and price was good but this room would not have been suitable for a longer stay. Other rooms are ensuite

Great Place to stay in London”

Kings Cross is a perfect hub to get around london and around UK in general. Having located very near to station makes it very convenient so that you don’t have to drag your suitcases for long distance. We arrived early and the hotel staff gave us access to the room without any additional fee which we really appreciate. There were 5 of us travelling (3 adults and 2 kids) and stayed for 4 nights. The only downside was the family room located at the top most level (3rd floor) and makes it a challenge for my mom to climb up the stair (should have asked this in advance). Other than that all was good and had a pleasant stay in this hotel.
