I stayed at Albert Hotel for 4 night during business trip. It is perfectly located, in very quiet and nice neighbourhood, just 15 min walk to the Old Town and the walk is through wide streets next to the Museum, churches etc. This area is very safe and you can walk around by yourself.
Hotel itself is very good; clean, quiet, interior is stylish, very modern. Hotel theme is Albert Einstein (of course,the name says itself) and you can see his quotes and mathematical signs everywhere. Instead a door tag "don't disturb", there is "I'm thinking" :-))) And in the bars and restaurant you can hear jazz music which really suits the atmosphere of the hotel.
The rooms are not huge, but are new, spotlessly clean, with minibar, tv, free wi-fi.
We were having breakfast and lunch in the hotel and it was great. Great selection of food for everyone.And interesting combinations for lunch (including salmon) and dessert were served every day.
Staff is very friendly and pleasant. Have in mind that allegedly tap water is not drinkable, so you have to buy it (there is a grocery shop across the hotel). And also, in Riga they don't accept Euros so you have to change to Lats (Latvia's currency), for a start there is a currency exchange office also just on the corner across the street.
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.
