Historical Traveler Reviews Albert Hotel Riga
I have just returned from riga after 2 nights in the albert hotel, before i departed i found the reviews on this site helpful, but i was eager to see for myself, the reviews are all very accurate. the hotel was excellent. It is modern and clean and new. The service was excellent and all the staff spoke very good english (a bonus seen as my latvian is non existent!) the rooms were a little small, however the heated floors in the bathroom were a nice touch and very welcomed after a day in the snow! we ate in the hotel restaurant and this was very good value (approx £40 for 2 courses for 2 plus wine and drinks) the food was excellent, we also had after dinner cocktails in the star bar at the top of the hotel this was a nice relaxing atmosphere with wonderful views of the city. i would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anybody.
Loved this hotel
I was staying only 1 night at the Albert Hotel but it was really an excellent stay! VERY friendly personnel, clean room, all commodities like (free) wireless internet, excellent bar, what else do you want? I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a good deal in the center of Riga.
Brilliant Hotel and Location
Just returned from four days in Riga and I'm so pleased I booked us into the Albert Hotel. Its new, so everything looks good, however service was excellent, breakfast had really good selection. Rooms were really clean and warm. The Star Bar on 11th floor was fab, great views on a nice day. I would go back to this hotel and we intend going in the summer.
Excellent breakfast, super room and fabulous bar ! This is a better hotel than many four star ones we have stayed in ! Why is it only 3 star? Great value - visit before they put their prices up !
Great hotel in art noveau area
This is a great hotel, excellent buffet breakfast, lot of choice, excellent helpful staff and nice rooms, not huge but clean and quiet.
We had a great time in Riga, see it in the snow it's beautiful, don't bother with the taxi to town it is a great walk through the parks, go via the art museum it much nicer. It takes about 10-15 min depending on where you want to end up.
The food in Riga is very cheap and the hotel restaurant is great. We liked the bars and restaurants around the hotel area better than the old town plus you are in the art noveau area.
Albert Hotel Riga
Brand new hotel.(Opened December 2005) Very central for both old and new Riga. Very clean and warm. Good Scandinavian style breakfast. Friendly helpful staff. About 9Lats by taxi from airport.
One of the best
I stayed at the hotel during the first weekend in February 2006, and to concur with the others, this is a 4 star hotel at 3 star prices. The staff were polite and helpful and those that spoke good English took the opportunity to practice it. The food was excellent and drinks well priced, not too expensive at all. A must is to have a drink in the Star Bar on the top floor. It has a balcony so you can see the city and the vibe is very laid back and relaxed. The Albert hotel is a little gem and once word gets around prices are sure to increase. Its a short walk from the old town and just use the red cabs, which are the legal ones and won`t rip you off. P.S. Did I mention that the women are gorgeous lol!
Different hotel, very good
Just came back from 2 days trip to Riga. I had recommendation to stay in Albert hotel as new and fine hotel. I liked mostly everything, including staff, music, rooms. Everything was very very good as for 3 star hotel. Also i liked a lot of A.Einstein minds, written everyehere in the hotel.
The food in restaraunt was also superb.
The only think i did't like - it was too hot in the room at night, even conditioning did't help.
But anyway please try this hotel. I recommend you. I also recommend it to our clients, from our travel agency.
Have a good stay...
Stayed at the Albert Hotel at the end of January and I have to say what excellent value for money this hotel is. As the previous review said, it is a three star hotel that should be a four star hotel. It is new clean, modern and provides an excellent breakast. The only reason I don't give it an excellent rating is because of it's location, which is a 10 minute walk from old town and storage in the rooms, which is limited. However, don't let this put you off, you are getting a top class hotel at very competitive rates.
Better than a 3 star
I'd been told this was a 3 star hotel but it was easily as good as many 4 stars that I've stayed in. It's a large (11 stories), modern hotel that opened in Dec 2005. So everything's pretty new - sheets, towels, decoration etc. It's also very clean.
Apart from all that, there are some nice touches including pictures that relate to Albert Einstein whom it seems the hotel is named after. Another nice touch was the under-floor heating in the bathrooms.
There's a bar on the top floor which was nicely decorated in a modern style. It was very empty when we were there, probably because it had only been open for a couple of days.
The hotel's located about a 10/15 minute walk from the old town. We enjoyed the walking and hardly got a taxi in the 3 days we were there.
