Very comfortable, lovely rooms with concealed lighting, lots of 'Einstein' motifs, prints, quotes as part of the decor, including 'atomic' carpet motifs and interior signs with "Floor 10, "E = MC2" etc .
Great buffet breakfast, huge selection of food. You don't get your own table though, there are so many people you end up sharing but that in itself is good because you get chatting (if your Latvia, Russian or German is good).
The clocks at reception are witty; in most hotels you have several clocks with the time in different cities; in the Albert you have 'Latvian time', unreal time, time backwards, (one other), it's a puzzle working out what direction, even, the hands are moving in and why.
It's a wacky but luxurious place to stay and no sign of a Gideon Bible anywhere!
