My intended review was all extremely positive. Hotel was welcoming, personnel at reception friendly, efficient and helpful. The rooms were clean with great showers. Good choice of wine by the glass at the bar at a reasonable price. Hotel was situated brilliantly for museums, shopping and restaurants. I had a room at the front of the hotel and the noise... More

Stayed at The Albus for a 3 night weekend break. We had a pleasant welcome upon check in and had coffee made while we were completing the check in. We were shown our room and were offered an upgrade if we required a bigger room, however although it was not very big the room was more than adequate for the... More

I chose this hotel because of the very good comments on TripAdvisor and was a good rate compared to comparable hotels in the area. Excellent location, very safe (first timer), and helpful staff. I would definitely stay here again. Tips: Book directly on their website for promotional deals, for me a room upgrade. If you are arriving into the airport,... More

On our last morning the street was closed for a parade meaning that our transfer bus back to the airport would... More

In overall we liked the hotel and our short stay in it. The rooms were clean and pretty comfortable even being rather small. A coffee machine in the room and a rich set of teas in the lobby are good added value. The only issue is the price - I would expect a much more spacious and let's say interesting... More
