Until the burst of construction in early Georgian times, the area of Kings Cross was an open farmland marked with a few buildings.
The Alhambra Hotel built in the early 1840’s for lodging purposes, represents one of the last landmarks of the Pre-Victorian Period Set in Kings Cross, an area which was once a village called Battle Bridge. It is surrounded with historical landmarks, such as the famous Kings Cross Train Station built in 1851 which at the time was the largest Railway Station in England.
The Alhambra Hotel which has grown from its original single building site, is now be housed over 2 facing buildings on Argyle Street. Argyle Street is off the famous Euston Road and opposite Kings Cross and St. Pancras Stations.
About the Alhambra Hotel
Over the last 50 years The Alhambra Hotel in King’s Cross London, has established itself as the premier budget Bed and Breakfast (B&B) within the King’s Cross / St. Pancras area.
The Alhambra Hotel offers clean, bright and comfortable refurbished rooms, with a complimentary tea and coffee making facilities, a safe deposit box in every room, a full English or Continental Breakfast and WiFi for a very affordable / cheap price.
