Location - proximity to Old Town and Art Nouveau area; Einstein theme; lounge bar. A bit fiddly to get to by public transport
Staff was nice and location excellent for dog show "baltic Winner 2010". Parking garage was a huge advantage, but was not too easily accessed from within the hotel (many stairs and doors) The bed was too soft for my taste. I never got the answer regarding the price for a dog, which ended up being quite high (for one dog half room rate...practically the dog costed as much as a person in the room...)
Quiet room, really good breakfast. No complaints. And would definitely stay there again. The housekeeping staff starts pretty early (by 0800 or 0830) so if you're planning on sleeping in, make sure you've put out your "do not disturb" sign. Wifi worked well and was fast enough for me to stream movies. 10-15 minute walk from Old Town. Have already recommended The Albert to several friends who are headed soon to Latvia on adoption trips.
nice and modern hotel, about 15Min walk into town, therefore not on the frontier of the loud (partially crowds ;), the design attitude "less can be more" is nicely realized, very nice is that WiFi is available everywhere and can easily be used (no complicated tuning of the computer settings), we enjoyed the hotel that much that we stayed there a second time after traveling through Latvia & Estonia by car. just a tip for the hotel management: the staff within the catering areas (breakfast, bar, restaurant, 11th floor bar) lacks a little enthusiasm and speed.
wifi. central. no english channel tv. staff were not overly friendly. charge for late checkout. not enough tourist information and help.
receptionists was very kind. breakfast was awful
The ambience, buffet breakfast was excellent. Roof top bar had a lovely view and still was an intimate place for conversation! Small comment: A curtain/door on shower may help maintenance - floor gets wet easily
The views from the upper floors, including the 11th floor bar. Breakfast included a good choice of food set in pleasant surroundings of the lounge / restaurant. Modern hotel.
This hotel was the best hotel in all of the Baltics. Very nice, delicious restaurants and excellent view from rooftop bar. Softest beds and air conditioning that you actually control yourself. Very close to Art Nouveau center of Riga.
Position is good considering the price. Rooms are a bit small.
Pleasant hotel, nice personal, good breakfeast - located in an interesting aerea of town.
Albert is great. I like the theme concerning Albert Einstein everywhere with intelligence. Comfort, luxurious, convenient although in budget. Best **** I ever had in such price. Nice restaurant and bar.. Superb! Excellent!
The location as we needed to get to the arena, the excellent service of the receptionist. rather gloomy impression of the room
The staff were very helpful and friendly. The hotel's location was perfect for our 5 night stay in Riga. We did not need to use public transport, we just wandered to the Old Town and other places. There was nothing about the hotel that we did not like.
Breakfast was a disappointment.
took long time to check-in
Friendly staff; excellent location; lovely, quiet and clean room. -
Stayed for 11 nights (business) very friendly staff. Location close enough to old Riga to walk. Specially the free wifi in the rooms is great! In the evenings I logged on to the office server and attended all daily mails etc. Super. The breakfast is good but after 10 days the same menu.... (applies only when staying a longer time)
Perfect place to stay & excellent service - we loved it!!
clean rooms, friendly staff small noisy rooms, breakfast buffet was boring, no proper launch or similar which made the hotel very funtional and not so cosy
the staff could have been a bit more friendly and the bar closed very early the food was good and hot but needed more variety
Hotel staff was friendly and could speak English very well. It was also nice to get the map of Riga immediately after coming to town. Besides, the kitchen was useful and nice surprise, however, we didn't use it very much. The hotel room smelled like someone had smoked there, but maybe it is normal. Especially later at home I realized that. After all we were satisfied.
It looked little bit used... We didn't have own bathroom.
It was nice and comfortable place. Well, maybe the breakfast room should have been bigger..
The staff was very nice, rooms&hotel very clean, wooden floors, breakfast good, excellent location -> excellent for the prize Rooms didn't hold sound to the hallway at all, and at our stay there were some older couples argueing or keeping a lot of noise every morning.
Hotel staff Bathroom
2 big beds lack of service, they go to the room any other days, no soap or shampoo, onny desinfectant, minimal confort in the bath room. No desk to work, Wireless available but very slow, no othermean of internet connection, no night stand near the bed, minimal decor, but clean. No lift for 5 levels, non comercial street, no front office, customer need to find a little cardboard sign on the door to go one half a stay to reach office, doesn't really look like an hotel but more like an hostel. Breakfast minimal, no real coffe, and bad orange juice, very little choice.
Good room, excellent breakfast included, free wiFi with strong signal and 24 hour reception desk. seemed to be strong smell of sewerage coming from bathroom.
Excellent breakfast, very good price, kitchen It was too cold first time...
The price, the quiet site, the proximity of the center of the city. None for the price
The location was good, quite close to old Riga (about 15/20 minutes walk). Breakfast was simple but good as well The room was really noisy and simple, but you can't expect that much of a room in this price range.
The Mosaic is spartan, yet, bright, clean and very welcoming. The staff was very open and helpful. The location in the Art Nouveau district is better than in the party-centric old town and the price can't be beat. The parking lot is gated and secure. My wife and I have never stayed in a hostel, but this was an affordable option for us. It's in between a full hotel and a the backpacker style hostel that's perfect for budget travelers that want a good place to sleep in a central location. It's not crowded, and definitely not loud and we still had plenty of privacy. Well, the sign for the entrance is a bit small.
