My latest trip was to London last month. The second time I was there. I can wholeheartedly say that I love the city. :)

Training over...

A travel blog entry by cathc

Well, that's the last of the major train journeys done.

We left the Hotel Jeff this morning bright and early, and were presented with souvenir Eiffel Tower keyrings as we left *g* To our great amusement, as we spent most of our time in Paris avoiding people trying to sell us these things.

Rather than carry our luggage around all …

Hello everyone,

We got in late on Sat night and did not feel up to blogging so we decided to write Saturday's blog on Sunday along with Sunday's since we knew Sunday would be mostly uneventful. Then, Mike got pretty sick on Sunday and Sunday night was a rough night with fever, etc so we are writing all three on Monday. So please feel free …

    Super accommodation in a great location. Very quiet room. We had 2nd floor, room #20 facing Argyle St. Only 300 meters to Kings Cross subway statin & St Pancras Int'l Station. Very tasty breakfast offered in the morning with choice of continental or hot English breakfast.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Alhambra Hotel London

    A good choice

    from

    Stayed in this hotel end of November 2004. Were satisfied with the location (very near to the KingsCross Tube station, direct connection to Heathrow), with the room (very clean, just because of the old construction one can hear some noise from above), and with the huge breakfast. For 60 Pounds for double ensuite you can hardly get anything better in London. Recommandation!

    Good value and location

    from

    My husband and I just spent 3 nights at the Alhambra and had a nice stay overall. We stayed in a double room with shared showers and toilets down the hall, which were all kept immaculately clean. The staff was courteous and helpful and the English breakfast was very generous and quite good. The location was also very convenient and more central than I originally imagined it would be - we had no difficulty walking to sites/activities in central London (theatres, museums, cinemas, book shops), but if you're not a walker the hotel is also well served by the tube nearby at Kings Cross/St Pancras.

    Very clean, nice - but also not too cooperative

    from

    We stayed at the Alhambra Hotel for 5 nights - and we expected quite a lot due to their nice homepage and good reviews at "tripadvisor.com".

    Nice enough hotel, terrific owners/staff!!

    from

    Stayed here two nights this September. We were placed in the annex across the street and the door sign said Argyle Hotel. We took our full English breakfast and reception across the street at the Alhambra Hotel so I think they are the same hotel??? We were a group of 15 - 4 moms and 11 high school seniors. The hotel rooms are SMALL, especially the bathrooms, but they are immaculately kept and comfortable. The people make it a wonderful place to stay. The owner Martine, her daughter Sonia, and Sonia's husband are wonderful hoteliers! They were helpful, kind, conversant and made us feel at home. They graciously served us breakfast each morning, asked how our previous day had gone and what we were going to do, simply lovely people. The hotel is transportation convenient with the King's Cross tube hub and St. Pancreas train station just across the street. The local pub serves yummy fish and chips and burgers. You can walk to the British Library. In this expensive city, Alhambra is a good find.

    Nice enough, but nothing special

    from

    We stayed at the Alhambra for a few days at the end of July. Our room was across the street from the main hotel, which is located just a couple blocks from Kings Cross Station. The area is pretty quiet considering its proximity to Euston road, and we particularly liked the neighborhood pub at the end of the road.

    Very good deal

    from

    We stayed at the Alhambra and were quite impressed for the price. We had taken a two week trip around England and Ireland and we stayed for five nights at a horrible hostel and we stayed at the Alhambra before flying home. Our room was small but nice, we had a large bed and it was very comfortable. Would recommend this property for the budget traveler who is too old for the hostel experience.

    Good deal for the price

    from

    What can you say about a budget hotel in London that is close to major transportation connections, has clean and fully functional rooms and facilities, a comfortable bed, double-pane windows to decrease road noise, a good breakfast and a professional acting staff? To put it bluntly, the exception rather than the rule. As a frequent visitor to London who has had some bad experiences at budget hotels, the Alhambra is a nice find.

    Really quite nice

    from

    Really quite a lovely place to stay. The rooms are small, but are very clean and very neat. We found the staff at the hotel to be helpful and friendly. In comparison to other London hotels, it was excellent value for the price.

    We had been somewhat concerned about the area - King's Cross has something of a reputation. However, we found the area to be in the middle of a renewal process and certainly nothing to worry about.

    Great hotel for a reasonable price.

    from

    Alhambra was just what we wanted. Came to London - a couple and one 7 year old - to see the sights for 2 days. Brilliant location for St Pancras, Kings Cross or Euston Station and the tube to most anywhere at the end of the road. Room was clean and nicely decorated (in the annex over the road). Only problem was plug in sink didn't work - you needed long fingernails! Breakfast great, everyone really friendly. room only £78 for triple. We would definitely go back again.

    Good location for a good B&B

    from

    I was a guest at the Alhambra in the autumn of 2003. The Alhambra Hotel is located on Argyll Street, one block from Kings Cross and St. Pancras Stations in London. It is a large B&B with about 50 rooms. The rooms, though US guests may find them small, are relatively modern and large by British standards. The houskeeping is impeccable and the youthful multinational staff amiable. Full English breakfast is included and is more than satisfactory. There is no vending in the hotel but soft drinks and bottled water are sold at the hotel reception desk. There are a dozen or so restaurants in the surrounding blocks. There is a Burger King next door and a McDonald's a block away, and more British-style fast food is located in the train station. A lively pub is located just around the block from the hotel and a small convenience store is in the same block. The hotel is on the fringes of Central London but its principal attraction is its proximity to Tube and rail connections. While the hotel is not within easy walking distance to any major tourist sites (except the new British Library, one block west) it sits on top of 6 of London's Tube lines and thus you can be anywhere in Central London within 10 minutes. It also has rail connections to the north and west of England. The Camden Town Library is next door, which houses a London Transport service bureau in the lobby and can help with any tourist information needs. As such, my family (wife and 13-year-old son) and I found the Alhambra to be more convenient than similar B&Bs in the Kensington or Bayswater areas. This hotel is affordable for Americans even given the weakness of the US dollar, and our triple room with bath cost 80 pounds per night.
