Location was key point for the trip.
The whole place is in dire need of a refurbishment, New BEDS (bed frames were broken at the joints and tied together by a metal wire, did not noticed this until i walked and squeezed between the beds to reach this sink in the corner of the room and a metal wire scratched my leg), Bathroom needs major update, water pressure from the faucets did not work properly it was a slow trickle of water dribbling out and the same with the sink that was in the same room. Overall it felt like the rundown hotel..never again..
Hot water in bath was bit temperamental. You only get hot water if using on it's own as soon as you start mixing cold water hot water ran out.
Location was only redeeming feature.
Twin beds one of which was placed in front of the sink so couldnt get to the sink properly. Facilities were basic and in need of repair - hole around the sink outlet pipe had not been filled and let in draught, radiator was loose, 4 gang sockets were loose off the wall, no safe place to boil the kettle, shower worked intermittently. The previous occupant's socks and underpants were under one of the beds. Although smoking was not permitted, there were ashtrays located on the landings? Landlord was not very welcoming.
Location wasn't bad but quite noisy on an evening
The whole place was extremely dated, cheap old furniture that should of been replaced decades ago, and it could of done with a massive deep clean!!
Located in London (London City Centre), Albany Hotel is a 4-minute walk from Russell Square and 5 minutes by foot from University of London.
