Positive Reviews

Tons to do and see within walking distance

Tourists who are exploring London on foot will find the Albany Hotel to be ideally located Not only are everyday needs met through the vast shopping and dining options, but a number of cultural sites can also be visited within a short walk Nearby underground stations can quickly take guests to other parts of London for easy access to many other must-see spots.

Eclectic owner adds to enjoyable stay

This bed and breakfast is built out of a person’s home, and that quality is seen throughout Often guests will be able to strike up long conversations with the owner about the area, or about the owner’s past From check in until check out guests will feel like they are staying with a friend.

Won’t break your budget

The hotel is designed with travellers on budget in mind While there aren’t as many frills and amenities as a person might expect, the Albany makes up with its ideal location and beating out neighbouring competitors on value.

Negative Reviews

Reason for stay can dictate comfort

Depending on your reason for visiting London’s West End, the rooms at the Albany Hotel can come off as either cramped or cosy The small rooms are ideal for someone looking for a place to sleep in between exploring the area However, someone looking for a more restful stay in a comfortable room might need other accommodations.

Shared bathroom not ideal for the price

For the price of a room, many people expect a private bathroom With guests from 11 rooms sharing the communal washroom, it’s easy to imagine hygiene and hot water issues occurring.

Ventilation needs some work

The ventilation system at the Albany Hotel could use an upgrade Guests have commented about difficulties getting the heat/cool air setting right to provide a comfortable room Strange odours coming from air vents are also an infrequent occurrence.
