    The location was brilliant - good parking yet close to Museum, Botanical Gardens and great shopping. We booked a quad room but were upgraded to an apartment next door which was very spacious and comfortable. The breakfast was especially good and cooked to order. I would recommend this hotel for it's price and location.

    Albion was a cut above basic, and offered reasonable value for money. The staff was friendly and professional. I think a modest continental breakfast could be included in the room rate, with a surcharge for a full breakfast. Overall, however, I was extremely pleased with the hotel. I liked the fact that there was a small bar and access to basic sandwiches at a reasonable price.

    Would like basic directions (cross street Great Western) included with the confirmation, as I started out at the opposite end of Woodside and spent a great deal of time making my way back to the appropriate end.

    The hotel is clean and bright and the staff professional, pleasant and helpful. It is quiet at night despite being close to a main road. The underground is conveniently close, but if your suitcase is heavy, a taxi will come within minutes of being called.

    The hotel was in a good location for visiting museums and city centre. It is beside the subway which is very efficient. Rooms are small but staff were helpfull and the breakfast simple but good quality. It was good value for money and the quiet location suited us.

    The room was very small.

    I have stayed there before, the staff were as always friendly and helpful and this time I even had hot water in the shower. the sound insulation is not the best, later in the night I could hear the couple in the next room being intimate, so I will definitely book this hotel again next time I am in town :)

    the stuff, the location and the cleanlenss - no doubt it's worth the price!

    Perfect

    We liked the clean and well designed interior that keeps the old-world feel, not the huge modern types. The neighborhood was good, being close to the University and art museums. We ate dinner locally and rate the restaurants as excellent.

  • 8.2
    Great

    The staff were very helpful and extremely hard working. The location was great since it was near many West End restaurants and the underground station was a 2-minute walk. The rooms were clean and the hotel was quiet. The breakfast was free and filling. The internet was fast and free. The bathrooms had modern fixtures.

    Our two rooms were up 2 long flights of stairs in 2 separate buildings. The rooms had low sloping ceilings and the rooms could be a bit warm and claustrophobic because of the low ceilings. The opening sky light did help and they supplied a fan. We didn't always have hot water.

    Very good

    Good location. Clean and reasonably priced. Efficient staff.

    My room did not have a window to the outside (it looked into a utility room) and was a bit noisy next to the kitchen. TV didn't work very well. I have stayed here before in a different room however and didn't have any complaints.
