The Royal Albion is not a grand 4 star sea side hotel (although it looks like one from the outside), it is a cheap and cheerful 2 star with larger than average rooms in probably the best location in Brighton. If you understand this and don't pay over the odds, you will enjoy your stay there.
On the plus side the rooms are large, the location cant be bettered and the breakfast is good and if you get a good rate, great value
On the minus side, the rooms ( and the hotel) is a bit old fashioned, service is not great - mainly because of lack of numbers of staff I thought as they all seemed very good just competely overworked/overwhelmed) - and there is only one lift.
At the weekend it is full of stag and hen parties so checking in/out can take a while, during the week it is full of penshioners on coach trips so the same, lol.
Its not trendy or modern, the staff to guest ration seems very low so don't come here for a weekend of pampering and luxury. However if you want somewhere central (right by the pier and the seafront), cheap and cheerful - this is a good place.
