Cosy hotel 5 min from York Minster

I spent 6 nights at the Alhambra and I was totally satisfied with the service and facilities offered. 15 min on foot from the railway station and 5 min from York Minster, the hotel is set in a quiet street close to Museum Gardens. Excellent breakfast. Read more

Likes?
What I liked most was the location of the hotel, near the main attractions and in a quiet area with no traffic or background noise.

The time for having breakfast was very limited. It should be offered at least from 7:30 to 10:00.

Very happy with our stay

I was meeting with my elder sisters for a little break as I live live in the South and they in the North, so I don't get to see them often. I'd booked to see a show at the theatre royal and the alhambra seemed ideally located from the train station and the theatre. I had booked a triple room which was on the second floor and was assured my eldest sister, who finds climbing stairs difficult, would be able to use the lift. Read more

Likes?
The customer service at the alhambra was excellent from the moment we stepped through the front door. The reception staff, room staff and waiting staff all seemed genuinely happy to 'look after' us.
Dislikes?
Unfortunately my sister couldn't use the lift either as it was quite small and she suffers from claustrophobia. However, the reception staff offered her a room on the ground floor at no extra cost

A perfect 60th Birthday break

I booked this for my partners 60th birthday and as we hadn't stayed at the Alhambra before we didn't really know what to expect but when we arrived we were pleasantly surprised and appreciated the greeting we got, from then on it just got better and better. We had booked a four poster bedroom which in this case was really spacious, then the first morning breakfast put us on for most of the day and every day thereafter, the staff couldn't do enough for you and nothing was too much trouble.

Whilst we have stayed approx 7 times this was the poorest. When we arrived the room was cold but gave the benefit of the doubt when we came back in at night it was still cold. Reported next morning at reception but when we came back in at night it was still same. Even though they said they would bleed the radiator and give us a heater if that didn't work. We had to go and ask for heater. Damp black muck along skirting boards when chest of draws pulled away from wall. Read more

Excellent Hotel for a short stay in York

Have just returned from 2 days at The Alhambra Court Hotel, and to be hones it really is hard to find anything negative to say. It is located only 5 minutes walk outside of the City Centre, it has a large FREE car park for residents, and is very reasonably priced. The rooms are just what you need after a days shopping/sightseeing - and the lovely cooked breakfast beforehand will set you up nicely.

There were five of us staying for a weekend break. Three had a family room, two in a double. Both rooms were very clean and airy. We would all definitely stay at the hotel again. Read more

Likes?
The atmosphere in the hotel was nice and relaxed. The decor was dated but suited the building. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
Dislikes?
The only slight down side for me was the cooked breakfast. If you're a meat eater it was very good. As a vegetarian it was disappointing - a bit uninspired.

A recommended place to stay - clean, quiet with great locality

We had a spacious top room with a skylight window, which I preferred to a lower room. Although the hotel was full, other than usual coming and goings, it was fairly quiet. Breakfast was filling with decent coffee! Read more

Likes?
The central locality with the option of a riverside or museum garden route into the town was really great. Free car parking.
Dislikes?
The power of the shower was non-existent which made hair washing difficult never mind showering.

kay Mature couple Stayed: Aug 14

Excellent location & breakfast; just what we were looking for

We booked at the Alhambra at the last minute after a mix up with our original guesthouse booking. The room and bathroom were a little dusty in places with cheap furniture although the bed which is the important part was very comfortable.
I am making the assumption that a trainee was on duty in the dining room on our first morning as the service was exceptionally slow, the next morning was completely different and the service was excellent. Read more

Clean the bathrooms

The rooms was adequate but the shower bar in the bathroom (room 14) was rusty and looked unsafe. The shower itself was OK. We decided not to use the bath/shower as we were afraid that it might break. Also the shower curtain rail showed signs of rusting. Read more

Likes?
The reception staff were very helpful, especially when we had to wait around as my sister was admitted to hospital.
Dislikes?
The Saturday morning breakfast staff were very disorganised and we had to wait for service. Sunday was much better

Chris Family with young children Stayed: Aug 14

Convenient location but in need of a clean up.

We stayed at the Alhambra Hotel for 3 nights to visit the City of York. We chose it for its proximity to the City (less than 5 minutes walk) and parking facilities.

Recommend for the location, not for the hotel. Read more

Likes?
Excellent location close to the City. We didn't have to move our car for the whole stay. The staff were generally friendly and courteous to the guests.

A basic but quite edible breakfast selection.
Dislikes?
The general decor was very run down, walls in the room were stained. The bathroom seemed unserviced and general cleanliness was poor, though the linen was clean and changed daily.

A most enjoyable three days in York.

This was our first visit to York and the central location of the Alhambra.Hotel was so convenient for exploring the central city area with all its popular attractions including the not-to-be missed Minster, the Yorvik Viking Centre and the Castle Museum as well as the old pubs for evening drinks and meals. To complement everything the weather was superb.
We had been travelling through UK and Europe for ten weeks and York was a highlight. Read more

We did get slightly disoriented on several occasions and the map provided by the hotel was too small to easily identify street names. A larger Information Centre map would have solved the problem.

Served it's purpose

The room was fine, but it was very warm in the room with no air flow (even with the window open). I would recommend placing a fan in each room. It was just so stifling hot we were unable to sleep.
There was also a lack of toiletries. Usually a hotel provides shampoo and conditioner. There were just 2 small sachets of shower gel.
Apart from that everything else was fine. Great location, walking distance into the centre of York, lovely park nearby.

Easy to walk into centre of York (less than 5 mins), quiet friendly hotel. A great benefit is the 'own carpark' which in York is a major bonus. We would certainly use the Alhambra Court again.

Sad to learn the slightly scruffy stray cat which had treated us with suitable disdain for many years had passed on to wherever cats go, RIP.

great experience!

We are a mother, grandmother, 18year old, 14 and 9 year old who stayed for 2 nights. We had 3 rooms and were very happy. They were very clean and charming with plenty of room. The breakfast room was lovely and the bar was nicely stocked. After a long day of touring it was such a relaxing place to come home to. The lounges were nice and comfortable and the staff were all amazing! We will return and stay here again, for sure! Read more

Friendly with good service

A short stay but we would return. Good location for walking into the city and despite the scaffolding there was plenty of light in the room. the furnishings could be updated, but it was a clean and spacious room. Read more

Very prompt service: despite having many visitors, breakfast service was really fast and efficient. We asked for blankets rather than a duvet and that was ready on the bed and extras provided too.
Dislikes?
Some fresh fruit rather than canned peaches and grapefruit would have been more tempting.

Such a let down

As we wanted to find a hotel room at short notice we search on line via price and decided a double room at one hundred pounds per night would reflect reasonable quality. Read more

Likes?
The Alhambra was a typical traditional York city centre hotel. A wonderful five story Georgian town house within 10 mins walk of the Minster.
Dislikes?
The room we chose had a four poster bed and was on the first floor.
Sadly the room was in need of a clean with dusty woodwork and a bathroom that was very dirty!

This hotel gave us everything we required in a city break. The staff were extremely friendly and helpfull, The room was of a good size and very comfortable and quiete leading to a very good sleep.

Excellent value in a friendly hotel with easy access to town centre

I took my elderly mother for a 3 night stay in York and chose this hotel by chance. The hotel is close to the town centre with just a short walk through some lovely gardens, so it's easy to access all the tourist sights. The building has lots of character inside and out and is in a lovely quiet street so there was no noise late at night. Read more

Lovely place, very good location.

I booked 2 nights at the Alhambra as it looked like a nice place to stay. I was very pleased; the room was lovely and the hotel itself was located on a very quiet road.
The receptionist was very friendly and we were allowed to check in early which was a bonus! The breakfast was very nice although there wasn't a huge selection of cooked items.
Overall if I go to York again I will definitely check vacancies at the Alhambra before going elsewhere and I would recommend it to friends. Read more

Likes?
The 'old fashioned' decoration (Victorian furniture etc) really appealed to me. The 4 poster bed was a nice treat!
Dislikes?
The only down point was the scaffolding all over the front of the hotel- this was by no means negative to our stay, it just meant we couldn't see much from our window.

affordable and convenient comfort

we stayed for two nights over a bank holiday. the hotel was fully booked which shows it has a good reputation. we parked the car safely for free in the rear car park. alhambra was walking distance from the river, the main shopping street, the minster and main town centre. it was easy to go everywhere on foot! room had two single beds together rather than a double but was comfortable and clean. lcd tv on wall with freeview. and free wifi. bit dusty in corners but clean enough! old decor but cosy.

Location was ideal. Free parking for car. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was freshly made and whilst variety was limited, there was enough to fill you up! Bathroom was old but functional.
Dislikes?
The room could have been hoovered a bit more thoroughly as the carpet was a bit dusty. There could have been complimentary water in the room. Bathroom needs renovation. More variety for breakfast.

Well centrally located hotel

A last minute decision to go to York for a couple of days inspired us to go to the Visit York website, where the Alhambra reviews were very encouraging.
A very friendly run hotel, excellent central location ( about 5 mins to walk into centre of York )
Breakfast was excellent and the evening meal(additional payment) was delicious and well worth the money.
Plenty of tourist info leaflets available at the reception and the staff were knowledgeable too.

Good Choice for a short stay in York

Stayed for three nights with the aim of sight seeing and enjoying the City of York using the hotel as a base.
Hotel was within easy walking distance of York approx half a mile from the town centre. The car was parked safely free of charge in the hotel car park. We stayed in the four poster room which was comfortable but decor ready for some refurbishment. Good nights sleep, excellent food with polite helpful staff. Not requiring a Gym or pool we found the hotel to be just what we needed. Read more

We arrived from London three hours ahead of check-in time but were welcomed immediately and given our room key straight away. All the staff were friendly, helpful and very welcoming.
Dislikes?
The bathroom was very clean but the shower was weak probably due to limescale in the shower head.

Convenient & pleasant

Conveniently situated in pleasant quiet street of attractive houses. Very easy walk into main attractions. Hotel restaurant rather dark for breakfast but food quality good & service also good. Rather old fashioned appearance in public rooms & a maze of corridors to all rooms. Bedrooms comfortable but lack of places in bathroom to put toilet bags or shower/ soap/ shampoo. Read more

Bathroom storage shelving & poor Internet access in bedroom.

not quite up to scratch

A great location, easy to walk into centre, with the added benefit of a car park. Staff were welcoming and friendly but unfortunately the room was not cleaned to a satisfactory standard when we arrived. Had to ask for the carpet to be hoovered. The sink had a line of soap scum behind the taps. Shower was very poor and the shower mat in the bath was a bit of a death trap - slipped about the bath. Nice breakfast. Read more

Poor standard of cleanliness in room. Shower was not much more than a trickle of water and bath mat was a bit dangerous

Friendly, helpful staff

A lovely welcome at the Alhambra and nothing too much trouble for the staff who arranged an early breakfast as I had to leave before the normal breakfast time in the morning. Although not luxurious, the room was clean and comfortable and the cul-de-sac location meant that it was very quiet at night even though my room faced onto the street. Dinner was OK - the food wasn't great but it was good value and once again the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. Read more

Likes?
The hotel's main asset is its staff who were all very friendly and welcoming, and nothing was too much trouble. Although it wasn't the height of luxury it had a faded gentility which was endearing.
Dislikes?
I wouldn't particularly recommend the restaurant as the food wasn't great, but it was OK and reasonably priced.

A little disappointing after the first visit

This was the second time we had stayed at this hotel, the first time being about the same time the previous year. The second visit was a little disappointing in comparison. The room we were allocated was smaller and the bathroom was rather a tight squeeze. The first evening we did not have any hot water for bathing and after complaining, we had to wait half an hour while they boosted the hot water supply, which made it a bit of a rush as we had already booked out table for the evening meal.
