“Really comfortable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

I stayed here for 2 nights, on my 1st trip to Riga, and found the rooms very large and comfortable, the breakfast was amazingly good. Friendly staff and great location.
Check out the view from the rooftop bar.

This hotel is newer, clean and close to Old Town and beautiful parks. I felt safe walking in the neighborhood, even after dark. There is a shopping mall down the street with several restaurants. My room was quiet and the bed comfortable. The generous buffet breakfast offered many choices. It is about a 15 minute walk from the bus station. All the staff was friendly, except the person who checked me in (he may just have had a bad day).

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!

Hotel was nice, clean and comfortable rooms. And very quiet. Very nice english speaking staff. Breakfast was fine. Location is perfect. Walking distance to the old town and shopping. All the decorations that references to Einstein was funny..I liked the place a lot, good value for money.

The Albert Hotel in Riga, Latvia is centrally located, just outside of the Old Town (5 – 10 minute walk) and at the edge of the Art Nouveau neighborhood. The rooms are nice sized, clean and comfortable. Our room faced the back and was very quiet. The décor is fun with many references to Einstein, including crazy clocks above the reception desk. The breakfast buffet was outstanding, with hot breakfast items, cold items such as cereal, granola and yogurts, fruit, bread and pastries. The best thing of all for us was the customer service, in particular that of Maris Alnis, who went out of his way to call the airport in Vilnius, where we had landed a few days earlier, to try to find out if our luggage had arrived yet and to make arrangements for the luggage to be sent ultimately to our next hotel in Estonia. Maris made several calls for us and shortly after we arrived in Tallinn, our luggage arrived as he had arranged. I can’t say enough good things about his attitude and follow-through. I highly recommend this hotel.

Went to Riga on business together with a large group from my firm. We booked rooms, conference facilities and dinner in the hotel restaurant (Bestsellers) as a group. The booking process was very smooth, and every little detail was planned and organized in advance.
Everybody in our group got nice, clean rooms. My room faced the backyard, and was very quiet!
The hotel is situated in a good part of town, and in walking distance of the Old City and shopping.
The only minus is that the hotel lacks fitness facilities or a swimming pool.
All in all a pleasant stay, and good value for money!

I bought an ebay voucher for the Albert Hotel so I had a VERY good rate. I liked the location...right in the heart of the Art Nouveau area but also just a short walk to the old town. THe hotel was clean and comfortable. It was quite warm in Riga when I stayed there and the air conditioning did a good job of cooling the room. My only complaint would be that the showers are built without any shower door or shower curtain (at least the one in my bathroom). The first night I ended up with water all over the bathroom floor. THe other night I seemed to have mastered the shower and it was okay. The roof top lounge offered nice views but I didn't find the staff there to be terribly friendly. They were not rude but I felt ignored and both times I was there felt I had to flag them down for service. Overall, the staff at the hotel were professional and although I have no complaints, they were, again, not terribly warm nor friendly. I had dinner one night at the hotel restaurant which wasn't bad but generally I prefered the meals I had elsewhere in the city. THe breakfast buffet was fine. If I got another good rate, I would definitely stay here again.
