    the privacy. parking.

    the bed was ment to be a queen but it was two single beds pushed together, very uncomfortable. very small. said kitchen facilities and stuff in room, had a kettle and a mini fridge that was full of hotel drinks, thats is it! not even a table or a microwave.

    Value for money, close to city

    The room wasn't being cleaned properly for my check-in.

  • Couple
    5.0

    The location was reasonably close to the city and public transport. There was 1 very nice lady staff member who was helpful. Good heating system to make up for the freezing cold weather and pay tv in the rooms was good.

    Majority of the staff weren't very knowledgable of simple things like car rentals, room payments and minibar prices. We payed more for a pool club room except that the pool is not heated so we cldn't use it... the restaurant food was not very nice and every time we felt like opening a window or the door to let some fresh air in we couldn't because otherwise we would have been choking on cigarette smoke from the smokers sitting outside our door.

    Bed was comfy, free on site parking

    Pokey little shower. Lack of power points. Sugar,tea etc not replenished daily.

  • Single
    10.0

    I was very happy with the reception I received, the services were great, the food and coffee in the restaurant was excellent.

    Initially because a gym was not in the complex as I had thought when booking, but it all turned out even better.

  • Couple

    Close to the city & 24 hour check-in & check-out

    It would have been nice to have had the use of a full-length mirror instead of only a small one in the bathroom.

    Hotel is located in a green environment, not far from the city center. After 10 minutes walk one approaches the tram stop and the next 15 minutes is needed to get into the downtown. The Albany can be recommended for the visitors looking for a cheep accommodation in Melbourne.

    The hotel is quiet and clean, the room 52 we lived in has three big rooms and good equipments.

    Without wash machine, else, we'll stay there for a month.

    Comfortable and safe

    It is rather quite far from public transport

  • Couple
    7.4

    very close to the Botanic Garden and a nice walk to the city - but quiet location

    bathroom was moldy, caused musty smell in the rooms

  • Single

    Close to the business place, clean room equipped with all the basic amenities

    The room heater;s regulator wasn't working

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    the staff were really friendly and approachable. I loved the accessablity of the venue. the restaurant was great with tasty food. The beds were really clean. I would come back here very soon, in fact i am planning on making a booking in two weeks time. thankyou, and well done.

    the parking was not perfect, although in the end i got a good park.

  • Group of friends
    8.2

    Nice accomodation in a handy position at a a very good price

    The restaraunt has just been taken over, and whilst the food was good but in small quantities,, we though the wine outrages for the amount in the glass. Whilst I think they will upgrade the decor and I wish them well I personally think it is not needed in a budget hotel.

  • Couple
    9.2

    Great location, comfy bed, well equipped (hair dryer, soap, shampoo, conditioner, mini bar, snacks, cups, towels, warm bedding, tv etc), good value for money.

    At first it looked a little dingy, but it was clean and perfectly fine for a budget hotel in such an amazing location.
