I stayed at The Albany for 4 nights and felt positively unsafe the whole time. I was told the hotel is walking distance to the ICC but what I was not told is that the area the hotel is in is unsavoury at best. There is no way it is safe to walk anywhere from this hotel.
On the Friday night, the room next door to me opened and closed every half hour with lots of people coming and going...the person who got into the lift with me that came out of this room was seriously dodgy. The barber shop/bar which opens into the hotel reception gave the hotel a seedy air at night
The breakfast was OK, the dinner certainly not. The reception staff were efficient but not overly friendly.
The bed was comfortable, the linen clean and the room was cleaned daily.
