“Great”
Reviewed 25 November 2013 via mobile

Great hotel this, really top of the range. The staff are all very friendly and what topped it off for me was the Sky Bar on the top floor. A bar with an outside setting showing you the views of Riga in all it's glory.

Well recommend to anyone looking for a getaway to this city.

Stayed July 2013, travelled solo

Very helpful staff, nice rooms, nothing special in the rooms, but everything you would want. Restaurant was excellent. The breakfast buffet had a lot of varieties to choose from. Nice view from the top floors.

The hotel Albert (as in Albert Einstein) is located just off the central park and within easy walking distance of the Old Town area. The multi-lingual staff is friendly and helpful. The hotel restaurant is more than adequate and serves quite a variety of items on the breakfast buffet. The rooms are clean and neat, but of a modest size typical of the area. Unlike some hotels in the area, the Albert is airconditioned. There are many restaurants in the immediate area of the hotel, as well.

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.
