if you can put up with a shared bathroom, this place is a terrific bargain. the rooms are quite large, it's clean, it's well located and there is a lovely public sitting area with a bar. The staff couldn't be nicer.
Lee and I stayed at the Alabama for 5 nights. Such an amazing building. Location is perfect for just about everything. The bar on the first floor kept us hydrated after our days out and revitalised us after a couple of big nights. The rooms are great. Plenty of character. But..... the staff are an absolute stand out. Made to feel totally at home by owners jimmy and Emma and their mate and colleague Sam. All who I now count among my mates. We ended up back there on our last night before leaving just to say see you soo . If you’re nice ,and get a chat going ,you may even get Sam to knock you up one of his killer bloody Marys. Lots a love D and L
I loved the Alabama! Firstly it was so clean! The lounge area was groovy enough that you’d actually want to hang out there with friends. Perfect location for us & friendly staff. Our twin room was a bit sparse - could have done with a chair and a small table, I mentioned this to staff and I’m sure they’ll sort it out, but otherwise it was excellent.
Very happy with our stay at the Alabama Hotel. Our room was clean, smelled lovely, although in mid-winter it was a bit cold. The bed was super comfortable, and the room equipped with all the basics (storage, a little desk and chair, a mirror, plus a fridge). The staff were fantastic and super helpful. Our room (#4) was quiet, and the only noise we heard was a very talkative malamute having a chat with guests one morning. Naturally we raced out and down to the communal area to give pats to the friendly and giant dogs. The bathrooms were clean and positioned close to the rooms. As other reviews have stated, if you want to wash your hair and you're over 175cm tall, it's a little uncomfortable under the shower heads. Otherwise the showers had good pressure and were toasty warm. …
Rooms look little like the picture. Shared showers and toilets. No parking except at night. Not very nice or efficient reception staff. Great location, clean sheets. We were glad to leave and will not return
