This hotel has a great location for seeing the sites in Dublin. All the major sites are totally walkable and it’s just a stones throw from St. James park and Grafton Street. The hotel is beautiful and our room was HUGE! It was really two bed rooms, two toilets and a shower room. And most importantly, a very reasonable price. The reason I knocked this hotel down to 3 stars is for a few reasons. The breakfast didn’t include eggs - it was bread, cheese, yogurt and fruit. You can get toast, coffee and tea, but I think eggs are a fair expectation. I try to go easy on dairy, especially in the morning so I was definitely missing non dairy protein options. Another thing was, even though our room was awesome there isn’t an elevator. We were on the third floor, and while I appreciate the steps, Dublin was the last stop after a two week trip around Europe. We had been walking about 9-11 miles a day and our legs and feet were hurting... the stairs were something we would dread at the end of the day. Lastly, because this is in a popular area, and not far from Trinity, it’s loud. I woke up every night when the bars got out to people on the street. I had the luxury of sleeping in each day so it wasn’t an annoyance, I kind of enjoyed hearing them sing, but I think it’s important to note. I would absolutely recommend this hotel - it was clean, with friendly staff and like I said, we had an amazing room. Next time I’m in Dublin I plan to stay there - I’ll just be sure to come prepared with protein bars and ear plugs if I have an early morning.

A group of us stayed here on a friend's recommendation. We enjoyed our stay HOWEVER! the man at reception desk when we checked in had absolute no manor whatsoever not so much as hello when we went to check in. If this is the first impression for a hotel it certainly is not a good one - I always say some people should not work in hospitality! Thankfully the rest of the staff did not have the same attitude in fact the staff in the breakfast room in particular were so friendly on both mornings of our stay. Would definitely recommend staying there again our only issue was with one individual.

Conveniently located near Stephen's Green shopping center and park, which served as meetings points for my fiends and I. Staying on the ground floor was nice as many hotels in the area do not have lifts but at times could make for a noisy room. The room I stayed in was also right by the area in which breakfast was served. The room was spacious with a nice tv but it would be useful to have an a guide of the channels. The bed was semi-comfortable as it felt as if it were two different twin beds pushed together to form a larger bed. Overall the stay was good and improvement is always a plus.

Excellent location, price within reason, best shower/bathroom is just about the best we had on the trip - was redone relatively recent. However pack light, we were up 4 flights plus a half flight and had two large suit elevator or help from the staff. Breakfast started at 730...and most of our tours left at 7 so gotta wonder why they do that and get you to think it's included when it's really not available to most travellers. Overall a decent stay, just don't expect an elevator or breakfast to add to your convcenience.

I absolutely love this hotel and stay here every time I’m in Dublin. I have also referred friends whom loved it as much as I. The location is excellent and only a few minutes walk to most anywhere you need to go. The staff is very friendly from the housekeeping, the breakfast staff, and front desk. A special thanks to Owen for always being incredibly helpful and friendly. I would ask him for directions, restaurant recommendations, bus routes etc, and he was always gracious and knowledgeable. I really appreciate the professionalism and kindness. I plan on being back there next year.

From the time we arrived we were greeted by the most wonderful woman who gave us a map and very helpful information to tour the city. I was traveling with my adult son and she upgraded our room which was wonderful! The hotel was walking distance from all the top attractions and near great restaurants. The hotel was an old mansion and the architecture was exactly what I was looking for since I can stay in a modern hotel anywhere. The room was clean, the beds were very comfortable and it was quite at night. Access from the airport on express bus was great! The breakfast was simple but good. We stayed four nights and will be back! Thanks for making our stay in Dublin one to remember.

Very good room, excellent breakfast. Very close to the centre of Dublin. You are staying in an old house With staircases and an very big room. With bus line 16 it is 45 minutes from the airport. Close to green park en With a walk of 10 minutes you are in Temple Bar area.

Had to stay in Dublin recently for 1 night and picked the Albany based on price. Room was on 3rd floor, no lifts. (we had a long journey). Double bed just enough room to walk around. Be careful not to bump into bathroom door. Also had an electric fan, which was well used, as the room was baking hot, Even had to have windows open (in Dec). (And I don't like hot). Its typical old style guest house, decor is a bit dated but cosy. Lacks atmosphere, which is why I prefer hotels normally. I was happy with the price for city ctr, great location, clean and staff are nice and helpful. Bathroom light didn't work, it was fixed immediately. Taxi arrived promptly in the morning.

We visited Albany House in Jan for 2 nights. Easy to find, 10 mins walk to temple bar. The rooms are spacious and modern. Breakfast was lovely a continental one. Hotel staff were helpful and friendly. The hotel itself has great character. Would definitely stay here again. :-)

Bathroom could use more room. Not much staff, and those there don’t offer much in the way of service. Had to request multiple times for needed towels, supplies, information. Undergoing renovations so it a bit disheveled. Good room rate so adequate is the best I could give it.
