We stayed only one night at Albert, but visit was worth the money. Staff was very friendly and the room was clean and quiet. The location of the hotel was optimal. Only 15 minute walk from the main railway station.

great, cosy hotel in trendy design district. Very helpful staff, nicely designed rooms, good breakfast. Just perfect balance of what is needed. Only point for improvement: the WiFi doesn't remember you when you leave the hotel so you have to turn it on an off again and log in again- pain. other than that- great!

I appreciated the design aesthetic for my small but comfy room. It had everything you'd want without feeling cramped even tho there wasn't a lot of space. The hotel overall is well designed. Breakfast had everything you'd want. Service was mostly very good, friendly and helpful. Only down side is internet was bothersome. Dropping sometimes every few minutes. You must... More

The hotel was cosy, no unnecessary big halls or corridors. The staff was very friendly and early breakfast (juice, rolls, coffee) was served even we left before the official breakfast time. The rooms were personally styled (nice wallpaper), the bathroom was big enough. The bar was very cosy with bookshelves on the wall - like being in real living room

Just had a 2 nights stay at Albert, and we were very pleased. The room was great, very cosy. Bed was very good, and so was the pillow. We slept like a log! Also the sevice was very good, nice staff.

This is a basic hotel and I don't have any complaints. The room was clean and nice with working wifi. The bed was good and I slept there like a baby. I've seen breakfasts with more options, but Albert had more than enough to start my day. The staff was friendly and funny. Location is nice, because the street is... More

Nice hotel with a good & central location in Helsinki, with reasonable price compared to many alternatives. I would choose this again over many competitors which have premium price but with little - if any - additional benefits but back it up. Clean & quiet, spacy rooms, calm atmosphere on the yard side. Very close - but far enough :)... More

I stayed for over a week between changing homes, as I had done a couple of years before. The hotel had pretty much stayed the same, so a little wear and tear is starting to show. The bathroom floor was pretty cold during the spring, and the water not that hot. The hotel is still clean and cosy, nice breakfast,... More
