We stayed two days and one night in the Albert Hotel over the Easter weekend in April.
Hotel: the hotel decor is Albert Einstein themed, which we really liked - the quirky clocks behind the reception desk, the quotations in each room and all over the hotel, even the "Who tall are you" chart by the main lifts made the place special and fun. The interior design is very modern, but not clinical like so many "design" hotels can end up looking - bright colours and great lighting made for a very cozy interior. Also everything was spotlessly clean. The outdoor terrace on the top floor is a fantastic asset and a great place to enjoy a coffee with a wonderful view over Riga's rooftops when the sun is shining. The hotel is located in the Art Nouveau district of Riga, but within walking distance of the ferry terminal and the Old Town.
Service: We were served our whole stay by a delightful trainee called Joanna. She was extremely helpful, very sweet, and took care of every little thing we needed with a smile and a genuine desire to help and make our stay in Riga as stress-free and pleasant as possible: restaurant reccommendations, ordering taxis, suggestions for things to see and do, etc. She did a wonderful job and made us feel very welcome and right at home - I hope she will get promoted, she derserves it!
I would definitely reccommend Albert Hotel for anyone visiting Riga! And at only ca. 50 euros a night for the room, I can't believe you would find a better located, higher quality option in the city. Full marks!
