I am a frequent business traveller who tries to seek the best accomodation with value for money within the CBD areas. This is an excellent location in the CBD area. Ideal for business use or leisure as there are many shopping facilitiues very close. Everything a traveller requires.

I am simply a broken record about this hotel. It is always my first choice when staying in Brisbane. It is simply charming, the staff are always efficient and pleasant. The rooms are large and well appointed. The bathroom was showing a little wear but hey its an old hotel. its location is perfect, walking distance to Queen St, taxi... More

I love this hotel would reccomend to anyone and I would stay only here when visiting brisbane. Lovely big rooms high ceilings. Stayed in a room that has one of the lovely renovated bathrooms. Great service, quiet an car parking was very reasonable.

Dear Saramaeb Thank you for such a lovely review. It is fabulous to have such loyal guests. I am delighted with the feedback regarding our new bathrooms as our design philosophy was to have premium finishes and fittings whilst keeping a heritage feel.

Arrived in the morning hoping to leave our cases at reception and we were very pleased to be told that our room was ready for us. That, combined with the delightful staff member at reception set the mood for a memorable stay at this beautiful old hotel. Our two bedroom suite was spotlessly clean and had everything expected of a... More

Wow! I wasn't sure what to expect from a hotel smack bang in the middle of Brisbane and right on the Queen St mall. But the Royal Albert is the epitome of "royal". From the friendly greeting at reception to the lovely decor in the lobby, I was really impressed. It reminded me of the smaller boutique hotels I've stayed... More

Dear Muscateer Thank you for such a great review from such a seasoned traveller! I was very interested to hear that the hotel lobby reminded you of smaller boutique hotels in New York as that is exactly the look we were aiming for! We do have some of the largest hotel rooms in Brisbane which combined with our location does... More

Excellent service. Knew it was me checking in; was greeted by name. The room was amazing. Great bed, ver quiet even though my room overlooked the main road. Quick and efficient check out and loads of old world charm. Will be back.

Dear David I am pleased you loved our personal friendly service. Although we are at the epicentre of Brisbane, with double glazing our rooms are very quiet. We look forward to welcoming you back next time. Peter Tyrer More

Located right next to Queen Street mall, the Royal Albert Hotel is perfectly situated. We saw a play at QPAC and were able to walk from the hotel to the theatre in about 15 minutes. The hotel itself is clean and elegant and our one bedroom apartment was very spacious and well appointed. The bathroom looked a little tired and... More

Dear Steve Yes we are perfectly situated and it is a very pleasant evening walk up the mall and across the river to QPAC to see Wicked or your favourite show.

While it is on the expensive side, for the location it's great. Being right outside queen street mall- perfect shopping and eating just a minute walk away. Didn't get to try the hotel's restaurant but judging by the amount of people there every night, it must have tasted really good
