In the guesthouse-laden blocks south of King's Cross, the two-star Alhambra Hotel stands out. Its 52 guest rooms are simple but spotless, and it provides an inexpensive and reliable sleeping option for those catching a train.

Pros: Good value. Two blocks to King’s Cross / St. Pancras station.

Cons: Basic rooms. No elevator.


The Alhambra’s exterior provides a hint that this hotel is different. Built as a lodging house in the 1840s, its doorways and windows are studded with mosaic work. The hotel’s sign is beautiful, the gates are kept freshly painted, and flowers and greenery pour out.

Meanwhile, the rooms are pretty basic and comfortable, and equipped with standard room furnishings. Beds and side tables come in blonde wood, and all rooms provide coffee and tea facilities, a flat-screen television and in-room safe.

Basic rooms on the top floor are the cheapest in the hotel and share bathroom facilities. However, most of the hotel’s rooms are “Superior” rooms that are equipped with a private bath.

Best of all, the rates at the Alhambra Hotel are good—not quite “bargain,” but quite a bit less expensive than most nearby mid-range hotels. Given it’s very convenient location just south of King’s Cross and St. Pancras, the Alhambra is a safe bet for those catching an early train or arriving late.

Wi-Fi is free throughout, and an English or Continental breakfast is included in the room rate. Note that the Alhambra does not have an elevator.

About the Alhambra Hotel neighborhood

While many Londoners will warn you to stay away from the streets around King’s Cross and St. Pancras stations, the area is in fact only seedy here and there. There are oodles of small (and affordable) B&Bs in the area, as well as upscale restaurants, and a real range of shops.
