I would highly recommend the Royal Albert Hotel to anyone looking for a weekend away or work trip to Brisbane. The location was great and the restaurant downstairs was delicious for breakfast or dinner and we had fantastic service. The room was lovely, comfortable, and enormous - most unlike many inner city hotels. Thank you Royal Albert, we will be back again.

Room Tip: We had a room on the 5th floor and cannot recall hearing any street noise.

Staff are always welcoming and our rooms a standard that we've come to expect from this Brisbane Boutique Hotel. Close to best eating places not to mention Cafe Mondial at our doorstep, shopping in the CBD our stay is always relaxing.

My wife and I stayed at the Royal Albert for three nights on a "spur of the moment" decision to have a weekend in Brisbane.

Booking was done online and after reading various reviews of Brisbane Hotels on Tripadvisor. Having never stayed at the Royal Albert previously I did rely on the ratings and reviews on Tripadvisor a lot.

The hotel well and truly exceeded all our expectations. My wife arrived early and was allowed access to the room from 10am which was really appreciated as she had flown overnight.
The room was huge, well appointed, quiet and clean. The hotel is a lovely old building and obviously a lot of thought has gone into the decor and fittings throughout. It just feels good.

Of course what really makes the hotel is it's location. We just wanted somewhere central in Brisbane and I do not believe that there is any hotel more central than here. Across the road and you are at the Myer shopping centre and the Queen Street mall. There are hundreds of restaurants, coffee shops and the like within a 5 or so minute walk. As another reviewer mentioned it is so convenient to drop bags of shopping back before you go shopping again!

In summary, a great hotel in a great location and on the booking that I had great value. Highly recommended.

Dear Mr Australasia!
We are honoured to receive many positive reviews but I am overwhelmed by the quality and thoughtful comments from you particularly as you are such a seasoned traveller and reviewer!
Yes a lot of thought has gone into the décor and fittings throughout and I have to say this is never ending! Bathrooms are next.
At just 120 paces from the epicentre, our location is ideal.

I love staying at the Royal Albert for so many reasons. From the moment you walk through the entrance way it feels like you are in a special place in time. Everything is classy, old world and indulgent! I have been lucky enough to stay in one of the sub penthouses on numerous occasions and have lapped up they luxury. Literally across the road from the Myer Centre, you are in the middle of town - surrounded by shops and cafes, making it the perfect weekend getaway for the girls. Also, the perfect 'home base' for family trips as the river, botanic gardens and Roma St parklands are an easy walk away. I have also stayed in the suites for work purposes, and again found the location so convenient. I personally haven't found a nicer, more well-appointed place to hang out when in Brissy.

Room Tip: Go for the sub penthouse (Room 804) - gorgeous!

Dear Lissa
Thank you for such a well written review.
As we just celebrated our Centenary in 2013, it is important to keep our heritage style albeit with modern amenities and furnishings. With our foyer and lifts we have tried to go for a classic New York style.
A number of our Sub-penthouse apartments attract followings and I see that Apartment 804’s is growing.

I recently stayed at this hotel for a girls weekend. It's a fabulous location. Everything on your doorstep. Very close to Queen street mall so you can drop off your bags if you do go on a shopping spree!
We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment and it was so spacious with a luxurious big lounge and dining table and fully equipped kitchen. I could live there!
Reception staff always accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble.
Would definitely stay there again!

Thank you for your great review.
With our location, girls and shopping and Royal Albert go hand in hand!
Being across the road from the mall can only mean one thing – less time walking and more time shopping!
We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Like an oasis in the heart of the city. My family stayed in one of the sub penthouse apartments and it was like a home away from home. These apartments are so spacious and well appointed. A lovely place to come home to after a day of shopping, or a night out in one of the numerous restaurants nearby. The double pane windows ensure a good nights sleep, even though you're right in the heart of the city. The location is great being directly across the road from the Myers centre in the CBD & minutes walk from everything else. The staff were very friendly & nothing was too much trouble for them. I will certainly stay again on my next visit to Brisbane.
