As it says in the title, the location of this hotel is excellent. It's right next to St Pancras International and Kings Cross, close to Euston and surrounded by lots of places to eat and drink. The rooms are small but clean, and the beds are comfortable. Our stay was nice and quiet as there was only one other room...

Stayed here twice for 1 night each (before and after a quick trip to Paris via Eurostar at St. Pancras) For a small fee they held our luggage while we were out of town. Because we left so early in the morning, we didn't get to try the full breakfast, but they did make toast especially for us which was...

Granted... we reserved our room at the Alhambra Hotel at the last minute, but it was the most pricey stay on our "off season" adventure to London, Paris and Edinburgh. The room was fine, and the breakfast that was included was exceptional. But the service from the front desk was sub-par and scary. On the morning of February 6th, we...

Well run, friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are clean tidy and well maintained. Our only issue was for my husband aged 88 the steep stairway to the 2nd floor bedroom we had been allocated. The owner said we should have asked for a room on a lower floor. Breakfast was excellent the English breakfast was good quality and freshly...

I stayed here with my partner for a long weekend, location is perfect, close to underground, train station and burger king! There's plenty of places to eat near the hotel, we visited a nice little Indian. Breakfast was standard, personally I found mine quite small and would have liked the option to pay for a larger breakfast. There is also...

We stayed here for one night to get the Eurostar to Belgium and we thought it was a really nice hotel. Staff were really friendly and helpful and the breakfast was lovely but we had a bit of a rush in the morning so couldn't enjoy it properly. I would definitely recommend it, really nice hotel and really well priced.
