Great hotel for short stay in central London
Thoroughly enjoyable stay at the Alhambra. Check-in was swift, friendly and effective and access to my room at no. 22 was fine. Be aware - no lift access, so choose hotel according to your requirements. Room was clean and bed very comfortable - great nights sleep. Room not particularly spacious but acceptable for a short stay in central London and the tea tray was a great touch. Bathroom was very small but the benefit of having the en-suite outweighed this point. The wash basin is tiny but there was plenty of hot water in the shower to counterbalance this. Lovely breakfast - sufficient choice, well presented, good service, space a little tight but greatly appreciated, and set me up for the day. Check out time of 11.00 was brilliant - afforded me a leisurely start to my day. Hotel position is 2 minutes from St Pancras station / Kings Cross tube with access to all of London. Would return with pleasure.

Clean but very basic, when sharing a bathroom you literally share it with everyone!

We had a nice stay the noise of other people in the hotel was quite lowd due to heavy doors slamming. The rooms were clean and tidy. The staff were very helpful and nothing was to much trouble the breakfast was nice to .

Very good value for central London
This was ideal for staying in London overnight - clean, tidy and quieter than expected for such a busy area. Great breakfast and the staff were friendly and very helpful. I stayed in a single room, so it was compact but well-equipped. I'll stay again as it's very good value for a central London location.

Would have been good if...
When we arrived for check in (bang on time) the room wasn't ready because the lock was broken and they needed to replace it. They apologized and asked us to come back in a an hour (the maintenance man was there at the time) We wandered for a good hour and a half to ensure that they had time to fix the issue. Upon return it still wasn't done and we had to wait a further 45 minutes for the room to also be cleaned. Now i know that wasn't a foreseen issue but they didn't keep me informed, pretty much ignored us and didn't offer us a any compensation or a room swap (and i know they had other rooms as loads of people checked in after us, they easily could have given us a like room and kept the faulty one for the last people checking in.) I was really naffed off about this as we were only in London for one night to watch a show and intended to go for a little sightseeing before hand, with the hotel issue we ended up about 2.5 hour behind schedule and didn't manage to do anything before our evening appointment. Other than logistical issues the room was clean, but the door didn't close properly and as we were by the stairs it meant that we heard everyone at all hours of the night coming and going.
