Spent 2 nights here, and the locaton is the best point a short walk to the underground and kings cross is the best area to hop to other areas of london via tube. The Albion is okay and the rooms are all neat and very clean but very small, good for short stopover tea and coffee in rooms is lousy tasteless tea bags and the coffee is the worst I have ever had, This Hotel not for long term stays, you have to check in to the melville hotel across the way staff are polite but some staff are not talkative at all...some are, so very inconsistent in that respect. What lets the Albion down is there are no staff there at all in evening, only one miserable staff caretaker who doubles up on serving breakfasts He does not talk at all to guests and you feel as if you are in the way and not welcome, they have a peculiar system for breakfast they give you raffle type tickets to hand in every morning! If you need anything at night you have to walk over to the Melville hotel,(do not expect any help from the Terse caretaker) when I suggested an internal phone in the albion lobby to ring over for help I was laughed at....seemed to make sense but it was taken as a joke. Oh Well, sums it all up not very well trained in Hotel Industry. so this place is okay for short stay and hit or miss for helpfull staff, some good some bad. also the breakfasts are boring, and no imagination has gone into it....well maybe thats our friend the caretaker again!....Another good point, If you want to leave your bags there after or before check in times then they will oblige and store them in secure lock up, on leaving one of the staff rang for a taxi for us, one fo the more helpfull staff, so all in all a hit or miss Hotel. Some good points let badly down by the poor points
