The Albatros G.II was a modest-sized twin-engined bomber with thick-chord wings and single-bay wings. The parallel struts were reinforced with cross-members and it had twin nose-wheels to prevent tip-over on landing. The engines were 150hp Benz Bz.III or 160hp Mercedes D.III. 
Like all Albatros aircraft the fuselage was plywood-covered, and there was a pilot and fore and aft gunners. With the 150hp engines is was found to be reliable but under-powered, and attention shifted to the more powerful Albatros G.III.
