Have stayed at the Albion twice now. The first time was on my graduation and I was given a fantastic room on the top floor, which had its own private lounge UPSTAIRS (it was like a duplex). My parents had paid the same amount and a smallish room, but it had a balcony and jacuzzi. The 2nd time I stayed at the Albion, the first room I was given, was in the Attic, and a little dated so I asked to move and was given a large room with jacuzzi and 2nd double bed! As this hotel is so old, and i think it's been made up of 2 or 3 original buildings, all the roms are different (size, decor, jacuzzi, no jaccuzzi, balcony, seperat lounge etc etc) so my advice would be, if you don't like the first room you're given, just ask at reception to be moved! Unless there's an event on in Brighton, I can't see this large hotel being filled to capacity.
Overall though, very good hotel, lovely common areas, staircases, corridors, reception, bar. The only downside, I tried to bring a friend into the hotel for a few post clubbing drinks, but the bouncers, sorry doorstaff, wouldn't let him in, this wasn't amajor issue, we had a few tinnys on the beach instead.
