Reviewed June 19, 2014

A fairly average hotel that accommodates bus tours and business people. Location is not bad and in easy walking distance of the old town. Breakfast can be very busy when the bus tours are getting ready to go. I'd stay here again for business but not for pleasure.

The hotel is located within short walking distance to the old city. It is very close to Albert Iela, which is famous for its beautiful jugend-style buildings constructed by the architect Mikael Eisenstein. The room, the service, restaurant etc. were excellent, hence Hotel Albert can be highly recommended.

I stayed as part of a group in the Albert. The quirky little links to Einstein made it feel a little livelier than it might have been, and made a good first impression.

My room was fine, clean and large enough. The location was a little bit outside the old town - a 10-15 minute walk at least, which made it slightly awkward for co-ordinating groups to eat in the evening, since we essentially had to decide to eat locally to the hotel or in town.

Breakfast was good each morning - plenty of choice and decent quality. The highlight was the 11th floor bar with balcony, though - it was really rather nice and gave a good view out over the city. Don't look down though!

Normally when we travel we do not like surprises for what concerns hotels and we pick up hotels of well known chains. In this case we were late and ended in Hotal Albert. We were lucky. A very good hotel in every aspect and for a very attractive price.Based on our experience, it is highly recommendable. The hotel is very well located, in the middle of the Jugendstil area, a beautiful, calm part of Riga full of houses built in this art-nouveau. The hotel is minutes away of the old city centre and to reach there one goes through beautiful parks, marvelously tended, very clean. The room in a high floor was well isolated against noise and weather. The size was sufficient and the furniture adequate. Lighting was very good. Air conditioning worked well. There is flat screen and minibar well filled. The bathroom was simple but sufficient.Service was good.The breakfast buffet is abundant and of good quality though the assortment of fruit could be improved. The restaurant was sufficient for the purpose. The bar in the top floor is worth a visit. We tried a cocktail and it was well done. Staff is competent and helpful. The hop on / hop off touristic bus stops in the corner of the hotel and we would also recommend this bus service to get an overall view about Riga. Price was also very attractive.

A nice modern hotel, with quotes and references to Einstein everywhere, which was quite quirky.

Room was adequate, it was clean and had everything required for a short stay. Bathroom was clean and well equipped, toilettries in bulk dispensers.

The restaurant had a good breakfast buffet, far better than most hotels in this category. The evening menu was limited although there was also a specials menu, with a couple of other choices.

This hotel was excellent value for money.

The quirky quotes and references to Albert Eintsiein give some character to what otherwise would be yet another bland anonymous hotel. Rooms are small but comfortable and there is a good lounge/bar on the top floor with a balcony overlooking the city. The food menu is very limited with a couple of good specials that are only changed monthly - so not great if you are here for any length of time. There are a number of better and cheaper restaurants nearby. It is about a 10 minute walk from the old city.
