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

Excellent staff, great food. Orange juice in the breakfast table was not good. Room was okay too. I don't think I've met more friendly staff anywhere. They were very helpful and made us fell welcome!!

I stayed for 2 nights. I was originally only supposed to stay the one but decided to extend. The rooms were a comfortable size. I liked the location. It was not right in the busiest part of the city but only a short walk. The elevator doors don't open automatically which was very confusing and no one mentioned it to... More

Albert is making nice effort to keep friendly and home-alike atmosphere. No grand spaces or extra staff to keep costs up, you get good value for your money. Basic room was spacious and renewed, everything worked fine and minibar was emptied, which we always appreciate. Only complaints are the layout of furniture and mirrors as well as rough, industry style... More

Hotel is very old, but it's location and excellent service makes it worth every penny. Restaurant is quite small and not very pleasant, but the bar is very cozy. Rooms are big and clean. Good value for money!

I like Albert Hotel. Its quite a small but warm and cozy. Location is good also. There´s many nice pubs in neighbourhood and the area is secure and peaceful. It would be great if they´d have minibars (not empty) in rooms.

Did not stay in the room, just left the bag for a night. Stayed somewhere else the night so I can not say much. I write this review to 200 characters, because less is not accepted. So there is not much to say, just need to keep writing until I am done with 200.
