l definitely stay here again and we are already recommending your lovely hotel to our friends. We knew the rooms would not be huge but you are so busy out and about so this wasn't a big issue. Very clean, accommodating staff opposite kings cross station. Perfect

This is just across the street from King's Cross and St Pancras, but is also close to easy and quick food and such. We stayed here 5 days and were very happy with the service, the breakfast, and the room. Would definitely recommend for business or leisure stays.

I chose the Alhambra Hotel because of its proximity to Kings Cross Station.
