In an old mansion converted to a hotel/motel. Fantastic odd place with quirky furnishings and historic detail. Strange bathroom though. IT was like a striped tissue box stuck in the middle of the room. Roof top semi above ground lap pool with stunning city views. 10 min walk from chappel street

Recently renamed: Albany Hotel. We stayed here over Easter and enjoyed our stay. Sure, the building is very old and dated but don't let that deter you. Our rooms were clean and fresh. The beds were very comfortable. The staff were extremely helpful and the decor is very interesting. Breakfast is ample to start your day and a Dine in...

My husband and i stayed here for four nights. We had a room in the mansion which is large in size however it was very noisy. The walls are paper thin and you definately hear what is happening in the rooms next door and also perhaps from upstairs. The room were in was very tired, it is in need of...

My boyfriend and I have stayed here on two occasions in a 'petitie double' room, simply as a place to crash close to the city after a festival and night out. The first time we stayed, our room was mediocre. It faced the street and we were woken around 7am with roadworks, however to their credit reception had warned us...

I stayed here a while back, but it is still well and truly etched in my mind. The location is just a short tram trip from the CBD and the Bridge road shopping area. The room was small, but clean and neat. The bathroom funky, but to ensure privacy in there, you have to pull down a large blind. The...

This hotel is in two parts: the Bloomfield and the Albany and share a common reception area. Try and ensure you stay in the former rather than the latter as the rooms are larger, more quirky and are of the period when the front building was constructed. The older rooms have high ceilings, wooden floors and period features. The bathrooms...

Having checked out the hotel's website, I arrived at this hotel with a little excitement that it might be a little surprise packet outside of the CBD. I had paid $139 for a 'Deluxe Room' through a Groupon deal. This doesn't compare to what you can get for that price in the city. The bathroom was bad news- quite dreary....

Fantastic photographer because the photos looked good. We got there to our disappointment that it didn't look as nice as the photos. The room was dirty. They made us split the beds and put on the linen ourselves (there was only 1 sheet and a very dirty dooner filled with stains. The other bed had black hair in it and...

Walls filled with large size photos of the Rolling Stones tours of Australia give a real sense of wanting to turn what is effectively an inner city motel attached to an old manor into something like the Chateau Marmont in LA, a place for faded rock stars to continue their fading. Alas, it's the place that's faded not the clients....

Thankfully we did not pay full price for our stay as it was a special on deals.com but even then it was no value for money. Needs total upgrade. Bathroom so small could not dry yourself in there. Our room was clean but hallway looked like a brothel! Filthy, smelly and red lighting! Basically, dont stay there.
