“A unique hotel in a unique city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2011

The Albert is a quirky, cosy spot in the funky Art Noveau part of Riga.

The hotel carries a theme of Albert Einstein with chalkboard menus and room numbers and a decor serving as a fitting tribute to the man, library and famous quotes on the Walls included. It provided a unique touch that deems the hotel memorable months after having stayed there.

The rooms are well sized and offer fantastic value. High speed Internet via cable is free and a major plus on a long trip.

The restaurant is expensive by Riga standards, but you won't be disappointed by your meal- the food is delicious.

The sky bar provides a fantastic panorama of Riga, and A brilliant spot to enjoy some mellow tunes and a beverage.

It is about 15 minutes walk to the old town, so the location might be a bit far out for some, but it allowed us some more time to explore the back streets of Riga.

A fab hotel, and highly recommended.

The room was small but clean and served it's purpose very well. I saw very little of the staff which might be exactly how it should be, everything was as it should be. Breakfast was heaven everything you could imagine you would like and then some. The view from the top floor bar is beautiful, don't miss it. Across the street is a great blues bar worth visiting. The magnificent art nouveau buildings of Riga are just next street, short distance to walk to the old down town area.

We had an all in deal here which included transfers, room and dinner and it was excellent value for money. Yes, this is not a 5 star hotel with massive rooms and loads of amenities but for the price you pay this hotel cannot be faulted.

Location - about 10mins walk from the old town, which is good given how noisy it gets in old town on the weekends. Just around the corner from the hotel are 2 great restaurants - Flying Frog and Metropolitan Cafe - both serve great food at very reasonable prices

Hotel staff - reception were very pleasant as were all staff. Very helpful with advice and maps of the city centre, couldn't do more to help with requests

Amenities - free internet terminal on the ground floor, no fancy gym or pool but there was a nice bar with a good view on the top floor

Food - Breakfast was good with a good variety. Dinner in the hotel restaurant was also very good (not spectacular) but the setting and quality was as good as many medium priced restaurants in the UK but at half the price.

Rooms - quite small and fairly basic but clean and comfortable.

So overall, not a 5 star hotel but for a 3/4 star hotel at this price, you won't find better value.

Terrific staff, keen to please and knowledgable about local area. Well positioned close (10 mins walk) to centre of city but in quiet side road, terrific roof top bar and really good and well priced restaurant, food not outstanding but still very good and great service. Overall really good value.

Hotel Albert is a very nice and affordable business hotel located in the very centre of Riga, just a few minutes walk from the Old Town and main city attractions. The rooms are good size, clean and well equipped. The restaurant offers rich breakfast menu and decent dinner menu. On the top floor there is a Star Lounge which is nice for having a drink in the evening and offers a great view over Riga Old Town and the river (the view is especially effective by night!). I have stayed in this hotel numerous times during my business trips and never had anything to complain about.

the rooms are clean, the peronnell friendly and competent. Variaty and quality of the brakfast was more than adequate. For a 3-star Hotel in walking distance to the old part of the capital, a fair deal.
