Stayed at the albany Hotel without a doubt the worst place I've ever stayed. Shower bathroom was terrible only good thing was the bed was clean but everything else very bad. Spoilt my weekend booking.com were no help what so ever.
Room unsuitable due to staff smoking on site
Opinión escrita el 15 de Marzo de 2019
Described as a deluxe family suite with a balcony was something of an exaggeration. The balcony consisted of french doors opening onto a small lower ground service area described as a patio. We were told not to open the doors which rather defeats the point of having them.
The double bed would struggle to accommodate an average sized couple, the carpet has seen better days and the light switch is located on the wall next to the door rather than next to the bed which is a little inconvenient when retiring for the night.
All little niggles really but the main problem with this room is it's location - it's on the lower ground floor at the foot of a very narrow and steep staircase, next door to the owners/managers quarters. Nothing wrong with that except he smokes like a chimney and so the approach to the room smells like an ashtray. Added to that he also smokes cannabis which was overpowering and left us both feeling quite ill.
Another concern is that the fire safety certificate on display on the wall next to the office is 20 years old!
On the plus side, the ensuite bathroom has been designed to a very high standard. There's no food available in the hotel so the snack 'bar' provided in the room was a nice touch.
FILTHY and dangerous
Opinión escrita el 29 de Agosto de 2018
Checked in here for 2 nights as good room rates when my husband had to stay overnight following an operation. My advice would be STAY AWAY!!! Filthy dirty ,dangerous and not secure!! There was POOP on the wall in the bedroom, broken sockets with exposed wiring, no security latch on ground floor room window and nails sticking out everywhere. Shared bathroom on each floor stank of urine, mouldy shower curtains and general filth. Bed was tiny not much bigger than a single room was hot and claustrophobic and entire place was noisy!! Could here clear conversations in other rooms all night!! No-one in sight to speak too?? Check you in take your money and disappear. Disgusting place!! Checked out after 1 night no-one there to tell I was having issues or that I was leaving!!!
Hell is a better option

Where do I start? If you are looking for a trip down memory lane, no sleep, no space to move and to feel like you've been robbed by a Highway Man then this is your place! We were greeted by a guy with bare minimum English, who's first question was 'How you pay?' We paid our £139 for the one night and were given our keys. Room 2 on the ground floor. Let's just say that I could have taken the whole family to Beamish Open Air Museum for less money and things there would have been more modern that what was in this utter dump. There was approximately 4 shelves on the wall in various states of 'broken' along with the dirtiest net curtains ever known! No toilet, no bath/shower and a sink wedged in the corner of the room that you could barely get to because the room was so small and they had the oldest furniture known to man crammed in there. The bed. Dear god. It was a metal framed effort that creaked when you breathed and when you laid on it you rolled to the middle. It was covered in blankets, sheets and an eiderdown that I've not seen since... well... ever really. You have a communal toilet/bathroom on your floor that you have to share with everyone else. There was a selection of half used bars of soap to choose from should you wish to use the bath that had debris and hairs from previous guests in there. Our neighbours in room 1 need a special mention. They were the loudest, most obnoxious people I've ever had the misfortune to come across, and they found it completely acceptable to slam their room door every 5-10 minutes until 2.30am when they finally decided their ever screeching toddler should finally be asleep. The manager of this fine establishment has a room in the basement, and I was subjected to 2 hours of his booming voice raising up through the floor, then at quarter to midnight he decided to visit our neighbours in room 1 to have a deep and meaningful conversation. Neither the manager nor occupants of room 1 had English as their first language so made up for the lack of understanding by shouting, because you know, talking loudly makes everyone aware of what you're saying apparently! My husband had been on night shift the night before we travelled to London so he was out like a light and being deaf in one ear, he just laid on his good side and promptly went to sleep. At one point I laid listening for the sound of him breathing and got quite excited at the fact that I couldn't hear him, so thinking he had perished, I seen it as a reasonable excuse to escape from the hell hole! Imagine my dismay when he finally waffled something and took a lungful of air again. After 3 hours of broken sleep for me we got dressed and went for 'breakfast.' The dining room was downstairs. Down into the deepest, darkest circle of hell really. The dining room was some kind of shrine to Princess Diana and old decorative plates. Creepy. Really creepy. One table, for everyone to sit together at. Breakfast consisted of half a bowl of cornflakes, which were already at the table when you got there along with barely warm coffee/tea and orange juice. Once they were eaten, you were given toast. Breakfast over. I was quite happy to get packed and leave. Avoid this place at all costs unless you are the kind of person who likes to inflict misery and torture on yourself while being robbed for the privilege.
Good hotel for price
Opinión escrita el 25 de Octubre de 2015
This hotel is amongst the cheapest in london and close to the centre. I didnt have great expectations but was pleasantly surprised. The room was nice and clean. The bed was very narrow, so i almost fell out of it when sleeping. The bathroom is shared with other guests, so therefore is not the cleanest. The staff were great and very friendly.
