“Good value, clean and quiet.”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

Friendly hotel. I had a basic room which would have comfortably slept two people. Everything was spotlessly clean. TV easy to use - mini bar fully stocked, and free wifi! Breakfast was OK - the same every day but a good number of things to choose from. Hot food could have been hotter. Great bar located on the top floor so you can have a drink and enjoy a fab skyline view of Riga.

This is quite an easy review to write as there is next to nothing wrong with this hotel.

Starting with the negatives which really are minor - there is no gym or fitness suite which would have been good to work off some of the gastronomic delights of Riga, the hot buffet breakfast wasn't always hot (more like lukewarm), and the single bed in my twin room was a bit narrow. That's it, I can't really think of any other problems.

As for the positives there are many and the hotel was everything that could, and should, be expected of a city centre hotel. All the staff were very helpful and polite, cleanliness in the room was second to none - there was not a speck of dust anywhere. The bed was very comfortable, a bit narrow for me but very comfortable none the less.

The hotel is located about a 5 - 10 minute walk from the main city centre area which wasn't a problem but drinks in the hotel reception bar and terrace bar are reasonably priced so you don't get the felling that you need to go into the city every night.

All in all this is a good hotel to stay in and I would thoroughly recommend it.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a city view.

I was there in Jan 2014. Freezing cold outside at this time of the year, so better avoid visiting Riga in the winter, unless absolute must. Joking aside...

The Albert hotel is a real value for money. Does not look exciting from outside (I suspect, this is a building remembering old Soviet times but pretty well refurbished since then). Rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. Definitely more then, what I was expecting for the money.
I was there on business and needed Wi-Fi connection during my stay for 2 nights. It was free and really worked (not the case everywhere). Emails, conference calls, webinars run smoothly through it.

The breakfast could definitely be improved but - again - for the price can't complain too much. I suggest the hotel limiting number of choices at the same time improving quality of the served food and drinks.

The reception staff was very polite, professional and helpful, when needed.

The location is slightly outside of the centre but definitely within walking distance of the old town and other main attractions - I tried and survived the temperature (ca. -15 deg. C). Also, easy to reach from the airport - within 30 min. by car or taxi.

Overall, a good choice for business and leisure, when slightly tight on budget.

PS. By the way - Riga seems to be a very nice city - will definitely visit to see more of it (when it gets a bit warmer:-).

Our team stayed one week for business training here. The hotel is rather well situated in Riga. Only 10-15 minute walk to "down town". The room was nice, clean and warm. Plenty of hot water. Good breakfast so this is a good choice in Riga and worth the money.

Surprisingly this was one of the best hotels I've been to in Riga. We were given a room on the 9th floor with a great view of the city of Riga. As we were staying in the hotel in the New Year's eve it was a great place to watch the fireworks from without even going outside.
The room was being cleaned every day - there were always fresh towels and clean sheets. The only thing I could complain about is that it was quite cold in the room and there was no way to turn on the temperature ( A/C was not properly working).
I would definitely recommend this hotel because of its great location - its located at the heart of the Silent Center of Riga with the possibility to access public transport at all times.

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.

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.
