Had a perfect stay at this little gem of a hotel. Perfectly located for walking to restaurants, bars, and shops. Staff were welcoming & friendly. The room well appointed, clean & comfy and like the rest of the hotel was freshly decorated in a classic style and with what seemed like new carpets. The bathroom was clean and fixtures also...

The Albany hotel is well sited on North Street close to Cathedral an Castle and within easy walking distance of most of University campus. The hotel is a large townhouse over several floors. Receception and a small residents lounge make up the ground floor. I had a single room on the first floor which in comparison to most "chain" hotels... More

Stayed here for a night for business given its central location. Staff were very helpful and friendly and couldn't fault the service. The rooms were clean if a little basic with dated decor. The bathroom was clean although the fixtures and fittings had noticeable wear and tear. The front living room sells drinks and snacks and is a great place... More

Small quaint Georgian. As such the hotel is small. But where it lacks in space it exudes in charm. There is a little sitting room where Scotch may be savoured. And at the end of you day out, retiring into your small room is just fine. The beds are comfortable, the rooms well appointed and warm. The linens are quality... More

Stayed here in the summer for 1 night with my boyfriend who booked it as a surprise. The Albany Hotel caused me to fall in love with Boutique hotels. Fabulous staff, very friendly. Great location - good for food venues, cinema complex, shopping & sightseeing. I would recommend this hotel to any sort of traveller looking for somewhere to stay... More

This is a lovely hotel. Nice bedrooms (although they are quite small), clean, great breakfast with plenty of choice for different diets and tastes. The reception staff were helpful and friendly (booked a taxi for me to the station). Location is convenient for the university of the local shops/restaurants. Generally excellent all round

I stayed here for one night. The location of the Albany hotel is good though parking can be a little difficult. The rooms/hotel are dated but clean. The bathrooms are small and there was a lot of furniture cramped into the room I was staying in. The lady at reception was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was average and was... More

Always happy to stay here. This is a small hotel with plenty of character. Some of the rooms are a little small and pokey and the carpets need a complete revamping. There is a cozy common lounge with bar. Breakfast is cooked to order and is excellent. Free WiFi that works. Located across the road to the Uni. Would be... More

We stayed one night while visiting St Andrews and will be back soon but won't be staying here. Greeting on arrival was good and hotel generally looks ok. Unfortunately we were put in a room downstairs which was very, very poor in so many ways. It's called a small double but even that is misleading. You feel like you're in... More
