It's many years since I've been to The Alma and it's been transformed in that time. Our room, no 15, was small but well equipped and charmingly decorated. We didn't dine in the restaurant in the evening but the breakfast was excellent - both the full English and the pancakes. Parking outside in the street at the week-end was easy...

We stayed at the Alma in 2014 and had no hesitation in booking it for the last few days of our UK trip in July 2015. We had one of the Tonsley Rooms on the top floor. The restaurant is good with a good choice for breakfast. The pub is very popular and can be a bit busy at times.....we...

Had a beautiful, large, comfortable room overlooking a quiet courtyard. The windows open - which is lovely. The bedding amazing , nice coffee machine - fresh breakfast although I few more interesting healthy options would be a nice addition. Will definitely stay again.

Very nice hotel close to where our son is living, right opposite Wandsworth town station with buses running right in front of the hotel. Quiet, well renovated interiors with quality fittings and service. Very good choice for our stay

I really liked this place - the room was comfortable, the bathroom well equipped (including a great shower), the breakfast was delicious and the staff were friendly and helpful. My only gripe would be the quality of the hairdryer - silly but this is not a budget hotel and these little things matter.

This is a great place to stay in London with easy access to the city from the railway station right opposite the hotel. Or jump on a “Boris Bike” also available outside the hotel. The restaurant serves good gastro pub food and an excellent breakfast. We were on the top floor facing Alma Road which was quiet and the room...
