This hotel was ok. The size of the rooms and the old vintage charm are two definite bonuses for this place, however the access to their car park is difficult to find and if your car is over 2 metres and 2 tonne you cannot park here. They recommend the myer centre car park nearby which is fine for $10... More

Although the location is terrific, we booked a two bedroom suite only to find the second bedroom had no window, was the size of a box room and had to leave the door open to get any fresh air which meant no privacy. There is no actual on site restaurant but there is a cafe in the arcade downstairs. This... More

First time stayer at the Royal Albert, literally in the heart of the city. I was worried about noise but inside it was so quiet. The pillows were perfect for me for a great night's sleep. I definately recommend it.

Gorgeous old foyer. Everything I want in a hotel room - laundry and kitchenette. And cinema is just across th road. :-) and a short stroll to the botanic gardens on the river. Free bicycle dock is very near

Perfectly located for shops, river and theatre. A classically designed hotel, with well presented reception area and lift access but room starting to look a little jaded. Extremely good value in view of central city location. Very attentive and helpful staff.

Every time I go to Brisbane, I try to stay at the Royal Albert. Directly opposite myers on Elizabeth street. A taxi rank is right outside. The staff are always super efficient and pleasant. The boutique hotel style is beautiful: it is like being transported back in time. Love the Royal Albert.

Looking for a one night stay in Brisbane, we found the Royal Albert Hotel just what we needed. Close to the shops and with a great restaurant downstairs, after a day of exploring Brisbane we returned to our room which was clean, comfortable and not the usual run of the mill hotel rooms you come to expect. Pleasantly surprised, we... More

Great rooms and service, excellent location for shopping and plenty of eating options downstairs. Car park is only challenge to find entrance and best to ring reception when you get close by car for directions.

Great location, opposite the 'rear' entrance to the Myer centre ... walk out your front door and start shopping (or people watching, or eating). Great service, very prompt and efficient. The single bedroom suite had a huge amount of room to spread out, but could have benefited from: - some attention to kitchen resourcing (no salt/pepper, no medium/large saucepan). -... More
