“excellent quirky budget hotel”
Reviewed 14 March 2012

I stayed for a few days for work and was really pleanlty surprised by this hotel.. I love the Enstein references throughout and the realtive time clock on the reception wall. The atom carpet took a while to spot but was fun and the"i am thinking" door signs for do not distrub..inspired like Einstein himself.
The rooms were small but spotless with lots of places to store everything you needed. I missed a room safe but it was availabe at the reception. Internet free throuhout with a great passpwrd too

breakfast also excellent for such a hotel.
easy to walk everywhere even to old twon

will bring family back for long weekend

Room Tip: some rooms only have showers so ask for a bath if you want one

I stayed for one night for business purpose. staff is very friendly and helpful. Room is bit small but standard with TV channels in English. Breakfast is one of the highlights, very rich breakfast, big selection of food and good quality. Price is excellent for the deal you get. Location is just 10 minutes by foot from the main attractions. Recommended

I booked my appointment via the hotel's website. Booking was a breeze and quickly followed up by a confirmation. The hotel itself is located about a 10-15 minute walk from the main city center so its a good mix of convenience and calm. The rooms are well decorated and there is an attached parking garage underneath the hotel for a small nominal fee. At night, the star lounge offers a relaxed atmosphere to enjoy some drinks and admire the city skyline. For the quality and price you pay, it is really a good deal. A decent breakfast is also included in the downstairs restaurant. If you like jazz, across the street is a hopping little jazz bar that has live music. The internet was a bit slow and the service wasn't anything memorable (albeit not bad). If I return to Riga, I would definitely book again at this hotel.

We used this hotel and can recommend it for situation, an easy stroll in to the old town of Riga.
Breakfast is excellent with a good wide choice, buffet style.
Clean quiet room, and the top floor cocktail bar is well worth a visit for the panoramic views across Riga.

Stayed at the Albert Hotel during my business trip to Riga. The hotel is centrally located and is just a short walk away from all the major attractions (Old Town, major shopping areas, etc). Rooms are well maintained and the minibar is stocked adequately.
The highlight of the stay was the breakfast buffet which was huge with so many different options.
All in all a very satisfying stay and no complaints whatsoever. Would thoroughly recommend the Albert Hotel and would stay there again myself if I get a change to visit Riga again.

What a pleasant surprise this hotel in Riga! It may not look great from the outside, but inside there is atmosphere and joy to be found. The Albert Hotel is based on Albert Einstein and this theme returns everywhere in the building. The design is slick and modern, but warm and soothing when needed, like in the restaurant. Which, by the way, has a very good and solid menu.

The room have a descent size and comfort level. The bathroom is good, just bring your own shampoo. Breakfast is plentiful and well assorted. The hotel itself is located about 15 minutes walk from the city center or five minutes with a taxi.

There is also a sky bar, not too big, but nice. Saves a walk to the Radisson.
