Reviewed 1 November 2013

I stayed 1 night for business, the hotel is well situated in the art nouveau area of Riga. you can enjoy a good view from the lounge bar, the room was nice and comfortable.
Friendly staff at the reception, good breakfast, so a good choice in Riga.

The Albert Hotel is in a good location, not too far from the Old Town. The hotel has several good restaurants around it. The hotel itself is clean. One highlight is the bar on the eleventh floor, that overlooks the Old Town. It is a fairly pricey bar, closes early, and the view really is not that great, but it is alright as a bar. Breakfast was adequate, with little fresh fruit, boiled bacon, and tired scrambled eggs. It is also very crowded if a tour is in, to the point its easier to go across the street for something fresh. The rooms are a bit trying. The curtains dim the sunlight slightly, making sleep difficult when it is light out. Compounding the difficulty in sleeping is the anemic airconditioning, which does not really cool the room below about 22C. The double bed is two single beds at slightly different heights with a double fitted sheet over them. There is no electric kettle in the room. There is no shower curtain, leaving the bathroom floor soaked after every shower. It is cheaper to buy new clothes than to have them washed in the hotel.
For all of those draw backs, the rooms are neat and clean, and well lit, the internet works well, and the showers are quite hot. The rooms are quiet. The staff did their best to accommodate requests, and were quite helpful in answering questions about Riga. This is probably a good choice for a night or two on tour, less so for a week long business trip.

Stayed for a week at the Hotel Albert in Riga, Latvia. Excellent hotel in the art nouveau district of Riga. Easy walk (or cheap cab fare) to the heart of Old Riga. Excellent breakfast offered every morning ... a MUST to start your day of sight-seeing in this wonderful city!

Room Tip: Booked this hotel early (4 months before my travels), for a great rate!

Although from the outside not as appealing, step inside and enjoy this great hotel! The Albert hotel is an easy walk from ferry terminal and old center. The Albert Einstein theme is really done great; we loved the clocks at the reception, the lines in the elevator and the 'who' tall are you, and many other details. Great design, comfy chairs. Not to forget: super beds for a relaxed nights sleep. Sound proof also. Although we had a room right opposite the elevator, we didnt hear a thing from neighbors or passers by. And by the way, we do not agree with some of the comments that the rooms would be too small.

The people at the reception really did everything to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. The breakfast has a big choice and the top floor bar should not be forgotten. If just the personel at breakfast and in the bar would smile and try a little harder, my visit would have been perfect.

All in all a great hotel which we definitely recommend and would love to come back to.

I have been this hotel 25 to 29 September, 2013 and had an international conference on top floor.
The room was neat and fine, the conference room on the top floor was also excellent.
We had breakfast, lunch and dinner at the hotel and food was nice, too.
Especially, Thank you to Alnis Maris who gave a kind service.

The hotel is very nice designed with a great sense of humor that was typical for Albert Einstein.
The personnel is also very well trained and keeping high moral even during late night hours. :)

The breakfast was nice, but did hit my personal taste (but it is my issue)

I highly recommend this hotel to stay at.
The location is also great, just 10 min. walking from the historical center and the RED TAXI is always available in front of the hotel.

The only disadvantage I found was that the hotel isn't equipped with fitness room.

Another good word about the taxi drivers in Riga, I used a taxi 3-4 times to go to nearby located hotel.
All of them warned me that this hotel is just 3-4 minutes walking, and didn't tried to drive me in circles to charge extra money (as a respect for extra honesty got a nice tip :) )

Room Tip: Higher floors has better view :) Also ask for view toward the old town.

This hotel has it all. First off, the location couldn't be any better. Second, yes, the rooms might be quite small and simple, but then again - think about the price you're paying and the value you're getting. If you want something bigger, be ready to pay a lot more as well. For the value you get, this is amazing! Comfortable, has everything a guest might need. I found the hotel to be very stylish and fun.
Best part of all - the hotel bar, Sun Lounge. The bartenders were superb and took really good care of us during our rather wild farewell party.
Great hotel, highly suggest it for large groups of people!
