How does the Albany Hotel earn three stars??
I visited the Albany Hotel for two nights, namely Saturday 28 May, and Sunday 29 May. I was in Durban for the 2016 Comrades Marathon. Upon arrival I noted that my television was not working. I asked three different staff members to attend to the problem since I wanted to relax and watch rugby in my room the day before the race. Despite assurances that a technician was "on his way", the TV was never repaired. The phone in the room to call reception did not work, so I had to repeatedly go 10 flights downstairs to follow up on the non-functioning TV. The air conditioner in my room (No. 108) did not work (an E3 error message was shown on the machine). The drop-safe in my cupboard did not work, so I had to hide valuables in my room. Bathroom fittings were grotty, and silicon around the wash-basin was moldy. The only redeeming feature about this hotel is its excellent location (within walking distance of the registration (the ICC) and finish venues (Sahara Park cricket stadium) for the Comrades Marathon.

7 nights
Checkin took time as the computer system was slow. Cold water in the room on the first night. No water at all for shower on one morning.

Absolute good quality for money
The place must have been well upgraded recently. Lobby with coffeeshop is nice and clean. Rooms are nice and very clean. The neighbourhood is very strategic: the PeopleMover bus stops right in front; beach is a 15 minute walk.

Best hotel for a family
Food, Location, Value for money
Being a second time visitor, my latest was very pleasant and even better than the first time. The rooms are big enough for the four of us and conveniently located.
