Busisiwe M. Couples South Africa, September 7, 2014
The environment was nice and clean, very quite.

very accommodating , The staff were very friendly.
I had a great experience. The staff was very friendly. We did not wait for 14:00 check in when we arrived very early in the morning.They just accomodated us since the room that was allocated to us was available. We got a chance to rest. The food was niceand we did not have any issues.
Hansen L. Families with older children South Africa, June 24, 2014
Misreprentation of facilities, vexing renovations

Location, mattresses and bed linen, reasonable cupboard space
Never again. We were booked into a room where the telephone was dead, we had no hot water, the "20 DSTV channels" (as advertised) were 8 channels, 5 of which were of too poor quality to watch, and the club right below played loud dance music from our arrival at 14:00 past 01:00 that night. We booked a room for 4, we were 3 guests, and there were only two bath towels. We asked for more towels on arrival, but had to ask for them again by the evening. (Because the telephone was out of order, we had to go physically to Reception.) The coffee provided was Ricoffy - how cheap can you get for a three-star hotel?! After complaints they moved us to another room that was quiet, where the telephone worked and the TV reception was better. Still, however, the disgusting coffee and the almost absent DSTV - Misinterpretation! The "full English breakfast" included only one kind of sausage, no bacon. On request, we got macon, but it was inedibly bad and fatty. Eggs were available only in scrambled form. Only the most basic kind of bread (ordinary white and brown) was available - no seed loaf, croissants, muffins, etc. The spreads were limited to margarine and one kind of jam, not even a shred of cheese! The service in the dining was beyond slow. One had to hunt down a waiter - they seemed to be understaffed. The staff that did appear, however, were friendly.
Mitchell B. Couples South Africa, May 25, 2014
Unpleasant, very noisy

Friendly staff
Very unpleasant. Hotel was undergoing renovations. Dusty and noisy. We were not informed of this by Albany Hotel or Agoda. Taxis hooting in the street below 24 hours day and night. Nightclub patrons made noise most of the night and into the early morning.
Rosemary M. Business travelers Kenya, May 12, 2014
After finish of renovation it might be nice

Near to the exhibition
Fatima S. Families with older children South Africa, February 2, 2014
It was affordable and close to major attractions

Size of room, clean bedding, spacious room
Overall experience was good. Suggest that they have a small bar fridge put in each room
Refiloe T. Families with young children South Africa, January 3, 2014
Will never stay in Albany again

If other hotel were not fully booked, I would have moved out immediately

Sibongiseni M. Couples South Africa, October 6, 2013
It was quite a normal stay.

Its location and accessibility of public transport.
Dissappointed with the size of the bathroom/shower.Non existence of the bar facility
Lindiwe N. Couples South Africa, October 6, 2013
Was nice but the parking is very poor condition.

Scott O. Couples United States of America, September 28, 2013
Extremely scruffy hotel, unhelpful desk staff

Comfortable bed, central location
Our stay here was extremely disappointing. There are 2 taverns on the same street as the entrance, with dodgy characters all around. The staff was extremely unhelpful and unfriendly and lacked knowledge about the city and even the hotel. The hotel was in terrible condition - extremely dirty due to some kind of carpet replacement upstairs, and there were marks and soil/dirt stains on walls. Breakfast was poor quality. Highlights: the bed was relatively comfortable and the hotel is right across the street from City Hall, which is a neat place to visit.
