Don't bother !

Cons: Do yourselves a favour - don't say that this caters for 4 people. Perhaps 3 at a push - but not 4 !!!! Also, you need to fix the shower drains.
Our family of 4 booked a single room for the night. The website said that that room would fit a double and 2 singles. Well it did - just. It was tiny. You to be climb over the 1st single to get to the others. There was no floor space to put the luggage. It was unbelievable and quite frankly a fire trap. On top of that, the drains in the shower didn't work and we had to take short showers to stop it from flooding the room. Finally there was no A/C - it was 31C in London and 4 people were packed into effectively a closet. It was just dreadful !!!

Quaint family run hotel only steps to St Pancras

We stayed here for a couple of nights and it was very nice. Was close to the station whichis why I chose it. Staff very friendly, breakfast was excellent. There is no lift, so be aware if you have trouble with stairs or lots of luggage. Room was comfortable, only downsides were need of air con or a fan to move air as it got hot and stuffy. Second thing was thin walls as we could here the people next door come and go, knocking and banging (luggage?) Into the walls. Would recommend it for the location and yummy breakfast though!

Sunny Hotel in the Rain

London in early January. Cold, wet, miserable. Then we stepped into the Alhambra. Bright, cheerful, friendly - like a sudden burst of sunshine. Highly recommended.

Functional hotel right next to Kings Cross station

Pros: Very good customer service and fantastic location.
Cons: Not much as it is ticks all the boxes at this price range.
Location: Close to Kings Cross station which is on many train lines.
The experience is what it was made out to be. Functional place. Neat and tidy. Comfortable with a breakfast thrown in. Close to shops and transport. Good place that ticks the necessary boxes at an affordable. Not luxurious, but comfortable and functional. Staff were helpful as there are stairs and they greatly assisted in carrying luggage etc. They even came upstairs to personally handle a query whereas a simple explanation on the phone would have been okay. They also received a delivery for me and kept it until I arrived with no fuss.

Beware. No lifts & no air conditioner & no phone

Room on 3rd floor. No lifts over 50 steps to climb. My 76 yo mother was with me! Uncomfortable & unbearable in the heat of summer with no air conditioner. I have learnt the hard way never to assume accomodation has basic services and will always check. Positive note the young msn on reception did climb to our room to offer to help bring bags downstairs but I had already nearly killed myself doing this before he arrived.
