We chose this hotel because the rates for all the Radisson Blu hotels suddenly jumped up and we didn't want to pay the prices.
The Albert Hotel is a little way out of the old town but it was not a problem for reception to
call for a taxi for us when we didn't feel like walking and the prices were reasonable.
I was worried the hotel would be cold since we were visiting the Baltics but in fact it was very warm and cosy. A little too warm at times!
The rooms were nicer than the pictures on the website and breakfast was hot and plentiful and we always got a table even though there were 20 visiting ice hockey teams staying in the hotel to attend a competition.
The barman Lauris was very attentive in the lobby bar and the Star Lounge with it's 2 for 1 cocktails, lovely staff and views of Riga was delightful.
I was very impressed with the wifi in the lobby that enabled me to print my boarding passes quickly and efficiently and the reception staff were helpful when needed.
We really enjoyed our city break at the Albert Hotel and absolutely loved Riga and its people.
Will return in the future but probably in the summer months.
