ease of access to King's Cross/Pancras

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 27, 2013

I stayed here September 2012. From Heathrow, it is a direct shot on the tube on the Picadilly Line getting off at King's Cross and then only a 2-3 minute walk. The family that owns this hotel couldn't have been nicer and more helpful. Iron and ironing board, as well as hair dryer are not in room but can be requested at the desk. It is a very secure hotel meaning you have to be buzzed in and 24 hour front desk means that it is manned 24 hours. No waiting out in the night to be buzzed in. After a couple of days, they would automatically open it for us due to the facial recognition. Rooms are very small and bathrooms also. stayed in a twin room with not much room to spare but as is the norm in many European budget accommodation so it didn't bother me. Immaculately clean!!! towels changed daily, the beds were comfy, and the bathroom also immaculate. The room I stayed in (2) was newly refurbished. The breakfast was good and plentiful and served in a nice little breakfast room that was clean. Full English and fit the bill; good to go for plenty hours afterwards without feeling hungry. The electric kettle in the room was a nice touch and restocked daily. I'd definitely stay here again, as it was clean and comfy, friendly, and so easily accessible to King's Cross station.

Unique Quality: clean, friendly, excellent location 2-3 minutes from King's Cross station.

Directions: King's Cross/Pancras Station

Good clean affordable accomodation

Great choice for staying in London. Straight across the road to the underground via Kings Cross Station and access to Europe with Eurostar vis St Pancras Station. Nice friendly reception with easy check in and check out.
The rooms were clean and airy. Breakfast was more than plentiful and oh so yummy.
As typical of these buildings that have been converted to hotels, the passage ways and stairs can be narrow and steep so anybody with accessibility problems should look elsewhere to any of the hotels in the form not only Alhambra.
Definitely on my list to stay next time in London.

Directions: Kings Cross district

A must in London

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 10, 2006

Hi, my name is Alan and i go to London many times per year because of my job. After many attempts to find out a nice, clean and cheap Hotel with the tipical english breakfast, my search is over thank's to Alhambra Hotel. I booked a single room with all the facilities inside and i get a double bed :-)). The rooms were clean everyday, the breakfeast was excellent and the staff always ready to help with a smile- i like that. I must say that the location is very nice because is very close to Kings Cross station and The British Library. From Kings Cross i could get to everywhere in London in a few minutes and that was very handy. I'll be in London shortlly again and i will definetelly go to Alhambra Hotel again. Thank you Alhambra Hotel.

Free WiFi & breakfast

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 2, 2006

London is a budget nightmare but at the Alhambra you don't have to settle for second best. The staff take pride in good service and the rooms are a good standard. The free wireless internet saves you heaps on internet cafes and the cooked breakfast (available vegetarian on request) is ample.

Unique Quality: The bathroom and toilet always smell like bleach - you know it's clean.

Directions: 1 min walk Kings Cross St Pancras underground. Cheap chinese food nearby.

Alhambra's Breakfast Room

by written on September 12, 2002

This is the breakfast room of the hotel, it is very cozy and you will be served the most delicious breakfast there!

Unique Quality: If you are planning to walk non-stop the whole day ask for the English breakfast: bacon, sausages, beans, tomato sauce and fried eggs...Mhh! Delicious, but too much for a South American girl...
Now, if you intend to stop for lunch,, you can have the continental one: orange juice, corn crisps with milk, toasts with butter & jam and tea, coffee or hot chocolate. Yum yum! That's the one I like!!
