“Wonderfull Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

This is a great place to stay. Our room was amazing, very large and quiet. Everything you want within walking distance. The staff are very helpful and friendly. It was great being in the heart of the city. We have paid twice as much for a room in the past and have been disappointed, defiantly value for money.

Room Tip: Floor 5 no street noise

A lovely place right in the centre of Brisbane. Fabulous room with quality at a great price. The staff were excellent from the moment we made our booking. Myer complex and great shopping just a short stroll away. Transport at your door. We stayed in the two bedroom penthouse, a real home away from home. Will return. Thanks.

Room Tip: We had a two bedroom penthouse, very quiet.

Dear Wendy
Thank you for your great review. It is great to see more guests discovering the Sub-penthouses for family groups or two couples. I am delighted to hear that our staff were consistently excellent. We look forward to seeing you next time you visit Brisbane for shopping, show, friends, more shopping or holiday.

I love this place, great position, reasonable price, and a little old Brisbane charm. The rooms are large with everything you need. Taxi rank right outside the front door for you flight home and the downstairs cafe does a great breakfast.

Dear Neal
I am pleased you liked our great position, reasonable price and our little bit of old Brisbane charm. As well as our great location, we believe that an increasing number of discerning travellers look for heritage boutique hotels. When we refurbished a couple of years ago, we chose furniture of a classic elegance and an innovative modern design to be true to Royal Albert’s 100 year heritage.

Right in the heart of the city opposite Myer centre. Huge spacious rooms 12-14 ft ceilings. Comfy beds and small but adequate kitchen facilities. Staff are excellent. We were on 2nd floor and got a bit of street noise, but not too bad. Had double glazed windows. Lovely paintings and china collection in hotel. Only drawbacks - no free wifi, and 2nd night was much more expensive because there was a major sporting event on. Same at all hotels in the city. But usually very very reasonable. Thoroughly recommend it

Dear Digiteyes
Thank you for your great review. Yes all our rooms have very high ceilings but Level 2 is split level so they are 14 ft (4.27m).
I am pleased you found us good value for money and appreciate your understanding that the tariffs are higher during State of Origin.

Wouldn't stay anywhere else again! Its a great hotel in the heart of Brisbane CBD.
Beautiful decore, spacious and homely. Friendly, professional service. Comfortable beds. Love the dining table and kitchenette in even the smallest of the rooms. Smallest rooms still a lot bigger than other motel rooms. I love this hotel!

We spent a Saturday night in Brisbane recently. As we were staying with another couple, we chose a penthouse. There was plenty of space to relax without getting in each other's way. It was in a great location and we would definitely stay again.

Dear Blbauz
I am pleased you enjoyed the great atmosphere of one of our Sub-penthouses. For two couples these are ideal as for much the same price you feel like you are in a Manhattan apartment overlooking 5th Avenue!

I was in Brisbane for 5 nights for work reasons and the Royal Albert suited my needs as it was very centrally located, It is in a busy location but conveniently to shops and restaurants. My room was huge with self catering facilities and comfy beds and lashings of hot water in the bathroom. Room was quite at night so no trouble sleeping. There's no restaurant in the hotel but plenty of choices outside so finding somewhere to eat wasn't a problem. Overall a very pleasant stay and reasonable priced on a package deal for three nights or more. Recommended!
