I chose the Alhambra Hotel because of its proximity to Kings Cross Station. I was taking my grandchildren to see the Harry Potter plays and we needed to be able to leave our bags somewhere before we hurried off to the theatre for the afternoon performance. It all worked very well and staff were helpful when we returned late in...

Stayed here, just for one night and really recommend it. It's close to Euston, St Pancras and Euston stations and really good location to travel around London. The price for London was very good. The room was nice and clean and comfortable and for London it was pretty quiet. The staff were all really friendly and the breakfast was nice,...

This is a well situated and well run hotel with well trained but very friendly staff. A little oasis of calm in the hurly-burly of St Pancras and Euston stations. And a breakfast to set you up for the day. We only needed to stay one night but but would have been happy to stay longer.

I found this gem online and couldn't have been happier! Fantastic location next to King Cross/St Pancras Station (Harry Potter's Platform 9 3/4), Eurostar, a block or so from Euston Square, all the bus tour stops, British Library (Handel's Messiah is there! real Jane Austen writings! Magna Carta!), where Sherlock is filmed(!!) (Speedy's deli is real!), a small mall, great...

The staff were very friendly and accommodating, helping me with simple requests for soap, a bottle opener, etc. I felt very welcome. Rooms were clean and very comfy. Location was excellent, I was able to walk to St Pancras with my two large bags with little trouble. Breakfast was simple but delicious, they also have a vegetarian choice with soya...

Hotel with excellent location: veryclose to King's Cross but in a quiet neighbourhood. Friendly atmosphere. Ideal for families. Helpful and nice staff always ready to help you with travelling tips. Breakfast was quite poor

Super clean - pristine almost. Great price and location. Small problems were lots of stairs, separate bathrooms and showers for some rooms. Hallways and facilities intended for the smaller-proportioned. Walls of some rooms are quite thin, so little things seem louder than they should. Literally a minute's walk from St Pancras. Book as early as possible as the rooms will...

Only one to two minutes away from St. Pancras and very close to the British Library. This is prime location for a really inexpensive price tag. They include WiFi and very good breakfast. The staff were very kind and receptive but I must admit that my room was absolutely freezing. I am also a wimp.
