It was a really nice stay in Albany, everyone was helpful and friendly. Although there was no lift, someone helped me with my heavy luggage up the stairs which was a really kind gesture. The hotel is in a convenient location near a tube station with lots nearby as well. Overall, I enjoyed my stay here very much!

I knew it wasn't going to be palatial and for one night I could tolerate no en-suite facilities but the shared bathroom wasn't much cop and the mixer shower both ineffective and unpredictable.

I would like to warn people who are thinking of staying at Albany Hotel to seriously consider alternative hotels. Albany Hotel has a serious bug problem. There are bed-bugs and TICKS all over this hotel. I was continuously bitten by the bugs and ticks throughout my five day stay. I was bitten not just at night, but the ENTIRE time... More

Was looking for a budget hotel somewhere central in London. Found Albany online. Room was tiny, barely enough room for 2 single beds. No ensuite. Shower was downstairs and was on a timer so went cold after 5 mins. Hot tap in sink was a trickle so took ages to shave. Tried using the communal iron but it wasn't working.... More

I found it odd to have to pay £90 for a room without an en-suite bathroom, but chose this hotel anyway because it was just a short walk from my appointment. London hotels are small, expensive and, as in this case, sometimes without your own bathroom. That said, the owner was very friendly and helpful, the room simple and dated... More

Staying in Bloomsbury

Neighborhood Profile
Bloomsbury
Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance access to many of London's most popular attractions. It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated museums, including the must-see British Museum. Despite an understandable popularity with students, tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury retain a quiet, residential feel year round and throughout the week.
