Be warned, you'll be offered a seat in reception whilst they get around to checking you in, would you like a drink whilst you're waiting - careful, it'll be added to your room charge. Only reason we could see for slow check-in was to raise income! Dark purple corridors don't make it a boutique hotel, room cramped and plain.

The hotel location was good and it was easy to reach most places in foot. The room was clean and functional - it would have been nice to be able to reach the TV inputs so that you might not be limited to the broadcast channels. The shower was OK but not very forceful, probably due to the fact that...

I stayed at the Albus for two nights in May and found it to be quite a basic hotel. The facilities were pretty standard, cleanliness was poor with a strange smell in the bathroom and dirt on the floor. Rooms quite small and breakfast very average (eggs and beans were cold on both days!). A very budget hotel experience although...
