Comfort. Breakfast. Location.
Atmosphere and style, pictures on the walls, smiling and welcoming staff, cosiness and good reputation, no haste and too much people around I do not like body cream in the bath-room
Ideal location for Riga old town.
WIFI do not good in some of a rooms Sometimes smoking rooms you get instead of non-smoking
Ideal location with fine rooms and exceptional stAff
Staff spoke good English, and were generally very helpful. Breakfast was terrible. Room was small, and looked onto a power unit. Although I paid for a double room, I only got a single bed !
style, comfort, restaurant & libary
location, high standard
Excellent location, just 2 min walking from old town. underground car parking included in price. The room was spacious and comfortable.The hotel and room was nice and clean. Also quiet, there was wedding party in restaurant during the night we stayed in hotel but we could not hear any noise at the room. Nice hotel!
the locatoin the staff the breakfast the standart room is small......
Room interior - Bathroom- I usually stay to this hotel 3 times per year since 2000. It is not a 5 stars hotel, there is no lagguage servise at the entrance and to the room. It was raining and no umbrellas at all for clients - Service decreased expecially after taking over from Radisson. Do not know If i will stay here next time.
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.
Position is good considering the price. Rooms are a bit small.
receptionists was very kind. breakfast was awful
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...)
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 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.
Location - proximity to Old Town and Art Nouveau area; Einstein theme; lounge bar. A bit fiddly to get to by public transport
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
Pleasant hotel, nice personal, good breakfeast - located in an interesting aerea of town.
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.
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.
wifi. central. no english channel tv. staff were not overly friendly. charge for late checkout. not enough tourist information and help.
Having problems with the air condition in the 5.th floor we got another room for our second night, no problem. The room in the 2th floor was suprinsinly quiet eventhoug it faced to the busy street. Staff was so helpful and kind with good English. We also spend 1,5 hour at the pool and saunas. It was so relaxing! The 5.the floor was hot! Airconditions didn´t work and just outside the window were "turbins" making loud voice. And if you open the window there are no curtains to put in front of it. So we couldn´t sleep at all. So if you stay at the 5th floor make sure ac is working. On the other hand we thught that the rooms in 5th floor were very nice decorated and we liked the rooms alot.
The help shown to my wife and I on our arrival at the hotel, by the hotel staff . The room allocated to us, was first class and good value for money. I think the hotel should be more precise in its web sites description of the hotel swimming pool ?.
Location, and the bus which goes to the airport will stop in front of this hotel. Internet wasn't free of charge, and so slow. And the staff was not so friendly.
I liked the excellent service, the stuff was very helpful and nice. The room was comfortable and clean with everything you need for luxury. I did not like the massage in spa, it was not professional.
Breakfast Some rooms at the back of the hotel, they are very dark and bad. Have to change the room. But they did it without any questions.
the staff was accommodating to my family the room was smaller than i thought
Very good location, nice staff, design & comfort in the rooms
The adjoining rooms for our family were perfect.
veru nice hotel., very central
lovely clean,modern interior, about ten -fifteen minutes walk to most landmarks. very convenient for transport links.
Staff was nice, breakfest the same I have booked dbl but I have received twin :((
Good service, beautiful setting handy for old town
old part of hotel is best as reconstruction noise from other rooms
Good size, clean, modern room. Very nice staff, good service. Nice location in the old city and in working distance to the Central station
Close proximity to historical areas. The fact that the old walls from original building were not hidden away. Food was excellent. Courteousness of staff. Absence of tea making facilities.
Flott beliggenhet i gamlebyen, kort avstand til ¨'alt'.
A very friendly and helpful staff - both before and during our stay. A nice breakfast buffet, where you can have freshly made pancakes, omelets etc., if you wish so. The hotel itself felt very cozy and the rooms as well were nice. A very good location in the midst of the Old Town of Riga. It is very nice that there is an elevator, when you use crutches. When we unfortunately locked the key for one of the suitcases into the bag there was no help to find regarding a tool that could help break ud the lock. This was a very small thing, but at the time a bit frustrating that there was no tool box available at the hotel.
The location and service and food hard matress in the bed
central location rooms on front have bright lights outside,24hours of daylight,to hard to sleep
Quiet street. Great, central location. Comfortable bed. Nice en-suite. Friendly staff. Got exactly what I was expecting from the website. Confusion at the end as to what had and had not been paid for, but they accepted that I had already paid and took me at my word. Breakfast basic but adequate.
very nicely decorated and trendy. also large rooms. i felt very good during my stay.
location of the hotel is perfect. and reztaurants and bars around it are just perfect. very good location and definately a butiq hotel. since the building is kind of old, heaters are not good enough to make rooms warm. so you have to ask for extra heater. sauna facility is too small and no staff to run it.
amazing location and spacious rooms..one of the best boutique hotels i stayed in..
Staff was professional and courtious. There was a feeling of tranquility which was great and attention to detail was at the hotel made the stay all the more comfortable. One of the best hotels ive stayed in in Europe The breakfast could be improved - this was the only disappointment. And perhaps a jacuzzi might be a good idea in the gym
Small luxury hotel.Only TV system was not good.There were no pay tv.Location is okay.Rooms are big and nice.Generally nice hotel but in any case it is very expensive...
Excellent room facilities and location. Staff were polite and helpful
The comfort of the hotel rooms was ouststanding No international shaver socket in the bathroom
I liked the staff, breakfast and rooms. I really felt that hotel staff cares about the guestes of the hotel.
everything. It is best hotel which i was nothing
Probably the best location in Riga, friendly stuff, warm rooms and spacious, nice breakfast. Close to railway station and bus terminal, walking distance to the main square matresses could be better
Staff very helpful ,breakfast, good ,lots to pick from.Good coffee. A place I have stayed at before,and have enjoyed. My stay was very good, 2 wonderful weeks.
First of all, the hotel is situated in the Old Town of Riga. Also it's only 10 min walk from the railway station. The outsides of the hotel look romantic with the cobbled pavements. Breakfast is very good (especially the salad with marinated cucumbers :) ). The staff is very polite and pleasant. I'd defnitely recommend this hotel to anyone. No complaints.
Its location near the railwaystation and center old city was convenient. The general atmosphere at the reception was one of no real interest in the guest. Perhaps not the direct fault of the reception personel but the change of time was not mentioned; thus missing my transport and did I have to wait another 7 hours. The toilet was not clean on ariving. The room (5212) was large but the furnature was basic only, the fixing of one of the curtains hing loose in the wall; the general atmosphere of the room was not impressive at all. The price of the room, 90 euro, per night was out of proportion. Dinner at the restaurant and beakfast were oke.
Location definetely. Just in the heart of the old city. The comfort is ok for a travelling, but not for thoise who look for stars.And the personnel on the reception is really nice. all of them.
The breakfasts were great. The rooms were not as well equipped as I had expected, given the pricing of the rooms.
Excellent location, nice size room, friendly staff, good breakfast spread Nothing particularly negative about this place but keep in mind that this is an old facility so everything will look, feel, and smell like an old facility.
Nice hotel, good staff, great location
You have to learn the staff to say good morning at least!
Good location, good service and nice staff. Maybe the hotel has seen it's best days. I stayed there once 8 years ago and then is was very nice, but nothing has been done to the rooms since then.
Excellent location, good breakfast which included hot dishes, large room, good value for money.
New, clean, small hotel at the center of old city with good design of space and good staff. The breakfast was excellent.
clenliness of the room and hotel staff were just perfect!!! I liked it very much.
localition and room with the perfect air condicioner the sound from the next door club
Nice room, staff were really helpful and friendly and the location was very central. Nothing. The hotel scored 10/10
I enjoyed its friendly staff, excellent location and the general good design and comfort. An excellent location for a city break in Riga.
Staff were very attentive, location of hotel central, room was large weather was poor
Good locations. Booking price and hotel price is defferent,small problem and was problem
The staff was very friendly and the service was great. Perfect location right in the center of the old city. Strange that it is a gap under roomdoors to the hallway.
Nice, new, clean, quite high class hotel. Sounds from the pedestrian street (+ night club) during the night.
Excellent hotel, room was very nice and a good size, hotel was right in the middle of the old town so perfect location. Also, the restaurant was fantastic. Would definitely stay there again no complaints.
Quiet atmosphere, good service. a little too warm rooms?
location bathroom leaked badly that hotel room carpet was wet. Asked for twin room and was given double. Room very tiny could not even walk around bed
breakfast no maney exchange....very important if you arrived in the night and whant to eat, specially if you take wife or kids, very bad coffee
Location of hotel in the old town. lack of a lift as we were on the 4th floor.
The suite was good. Comfortable bed, jacuzzi and sauna. Service of depositing luggage is very convenient. Web was not functioning during the first day of stay. Sattelite TV also didn't work.
We like the hotel very much it was very cosy and very central in the city and the price was OK The beds was too small and in a bad condition
First of all, friendliness of the staff The breakfast room was small and I would prefer more to choose from at the breakfast table...
The staff is really helpful (we've checked-in in 11am, much earlier than supposed to,after check-out left your lugggage in special room), the location is wonderful (Old City and railway and coach stations). Nice interior.
It's a nice hotel! Due to its location, ideal for people planning both city tours and shopping. Moreover it is located closed to the railway station. Hotel staff is pleasent and responsive. And the breakfast was perfect!!!
Our stay at Hotel Monte Kristo, was fabulous!! We couldn't have asked for better service!! The staff were really helpful, organised our trips, and made breakfast for us at a time that we requested! The food was superb!! Will definately be staying here again!! Everything was excellent, from the location of hotel, to the bedrooms and facilities, to the staff and food!! I stayed here with my sister, mum and 2 aunties, age range 23 to 58, and the hotel catered for all our needs!! From cocktails to cups of tea!! Thank You!!
Location Poor plumbing, the shower did not work
friendly, courteous, and helpful no
Lovely old hotel, close to bus station and old town. Staff rather cool in manner, gave memorized replies to questions.
it's good for quality and price, near the old town, and for visiting the city.
Reasonably priced with a good range of services. The shower water pressure was quite low on the 5th floor.
The hotel is just 3-5 minutes walking distance from the Old Town. Good breakfast. Pleasant personnel. Quite a nice choice for a city trip or a week-end break. It was rather cold in the room. Rather crowded breakfast area, sometimes hard to find a place to sit.
Good Buffet Breakfast
Very good location.
good location very hot - no air conditioning
Perfectly located, clean rooms, cheap price Was a little bit cold in the room and I do not like shower variant of the bathroom like in room# 301
My preferrences: location,reasonable price,politeness of staff, comfort for travellers-all you need at any time is not far to reach.for tranzit travellers like me it's a good decision to stay in budget room! I guess,my stay was good. Sometimes guests are too loud at night-but it doesn"t depend on hotel.
Absolutely superb. Price service location space. Impeccable
location Basic breakfast options, bed comfort, noisy stag do people roaming around corridors all night
It was a pleasant hotel very clean and comfortable, I would recommend it to a friend it was very economical. The breakfast could be better organised, i.e.there is a lot of waste as they bring everything regardless of whether you want it or not, some thing could be help yourself to prevent this
Staff was very friendly and ready to help, for tourism orientation, bus reservations, etc... Very well located between city center and shopping places. Rooms not grand but clean and great for the price. A few steps from Galleria Centrs where you can find Rimi supermarket and Double Coffee quick food. Wifi worked only 5 mn per day. Breakfast could have been better, I had to ask for the butter not to be frozen, and after that if I didn't ask it still came frozen.
The location in old Riga is amazing!
excellent hotel, in the center of the old city - it's very convenient to go sightseeing from here, a lot of shops and restaurant around the hotel
location it had a slight smell of smoke
The room was ok The breakfast was not ok
Price to quality ratio, location, breakfast. Breakfast was very good and unlike in Estonia, cooked food was properly re-heated before being placed in the warmers. I did not understand previous reports of "thin walls" and noise from neighboring rooms. Yes, if you are in the bathroom, you can hear the flush from above. But you don't hear it if you're not in the bathroom. At least I didn't. I was in room 32. The windows sealed well and kept out any street noise. Well, I hate duvets but that is a European thing. I would say they need heavier curtains, or a shade, to keep the light from entering first thing in the morning. It's not quite as bad as having a rooster next door, though.
Excellent location right in the middle of the old town. Rooms were massive (twins) with a sofa,tv and fridge. Excellent continental breakfast No kettle in the room but i think i could of requested one not sure
The hotel was in the old town and central to cafes, bars and restaurants. It was close to public transport and a lot of the local sites.
Central location, spaciousness and cleanliness of accommodation, nice breakfast. Limited services: no room service, no fitness center.
Nice rooms, wonderful view no
Very clean and comfortable room. Perfect location for a city trip (from my room I could see St Peter's cathedral very close). Excellent breakfast.
Great hotel, big rooms, great location.
Good beds, clean rooms, best location in Old Riga The breakfast is minimal, but why eat breakfast in your hotel if you are in the centre of town...
Hotel stuff is very frendly
Location and room. Breakfast also good.
location, breakfast no lift
Included dinner, free coffee and fruits in reception noisy street under the window
Good location, there are Turkish sauna, stream bath and small gym facilities those are almost always empty – very good for relaxation. Additional advantage is tea/coffee availability during all day. Evening meal (choice is limited, but quality is very good) is also included in the room price and this allows to save some money. Room is maintaining in typical ascetic style. It is fine, but I would prefer to see it better equipped. For car parking you should pay and it is not in close vicinity of the hotel. Overall, I would say: “You get what you pay for, perhaps even more”.
The hotel is an excellent combination of an historic builing but with a modern sylish and cosy interior. Cant fault it. Nothing
Value for money was excellent. Very good hotel for a very good price, near centre.
Good location and quiet. Nice breakfast. Poor furniture and very few facilities in the room. Room not cleaned for 4 days we were there. We had to ask repeatedly for clean towels until we got them. Bathroom drain blocked and bedroom got flooded.
Central heating was turned off! Room and bathroom were cold.
staff were very helpful. Room comfortable, clean and warm. Excellent breakfast. close to everything. Evening buffet lacked variety and not very hot. Dining room lacked atmosphere.
Location, public areas Standard room is quite plain and small, but good value
Lovely, beautiful hotel, very friendly and helpful staff. In an excellent location right in the old town. Pretty rooms. Great breakfast too.
central, calm room available,
We had a nice room at the back of the hotel. It was very quiet, location is brilliant and the hotelpersonal was very helpfull. The location is excellent as its in the middle of the centre and its in a very old building! When you have breakfast in the restaurant next to Ekes Konvents know that you can order more then one thing on the list and that cost 1,5 Lets krone extra. Not a big problem but you should take notice off. We found one choice was not enough for breakfast. Waitress was not so friendly compared with the extremly friendly staff from Ekes Konvents.
I like the fact that it is one of the oldest inns in Riga, and by that a historical building. It is located next to Peters Church, and the church tower is visible from all corners of The Old town Riga and by that easy to find for a forreigner who is not speaking latvian fluently. The teahouse in basement is cosy. I did not like the solution of how they serve breakfast. It is ok enough to go in nextdoor bar, but I would self like to choose what I want for breakfast and not all people like continetal breakfst with egg and bacon.. and in august Riga allready is quite cold, so it would be an idea to keep on heat in bathroomfloor and rooms in general so next time I come I do not have to freeze an catch a cold as how I did the last two times.
Style of room; central location. Very small room - barely enough space to open my case. No TV. It was fine for one night, but I would have struggled for longer.
clean, quiet, central, good breakfast
Excellent location, friendly staff, nice quiet room as requested
Nice bathroom's That the breakfast is in a another hotel.
Exelent location for sigt seeing No room tea making facities No bath floor mat
Location, location, location...overlooking cathedral in old town Decor of the hotel was fantastic Breakfast was superb..just had to walk around the corner Staff were very helpful Overall excellent hotel Room was small and no wardrobes, but hotel in very old building so no big deal really
nice sky bar, near to city
good breakfast, good views from the window, good location.. all is ok
great breakfast, great view from the Skybar.
It is too big and a lot to walk to get from the lobby to the bedroom on wing 6 The bar on the 26th floor was very noisy and full
Spa old tv
The situation of the hotel, survice
the location is splendid, the breakfast very good
night club voodoo no
The hotel was modern, clean, quiet in the corridors and therefor the rooms too and we found it safe I missed toilets/bathroom in the staircase and lobby area. Not even in Sky bar did I see a toilet near the elevator....
We booked twin standard room but asked for double and they provided us with better double bedroom at the same price as twin. The interior and exterior design of the hotel is very good, the atmosphere is nice, the barman at the bar is great - he makes better cocktails than at Sky line bar! The bed is very comfortable, the bathroom was always clean. We spent 10 days at this hotel and never had any troubles. The breakfast is very good with big variety of various kinds of food. Despite the hotel was full at the time we were there we never heard any sounds from neigbours. It was a little bit dusty in the room (shelves, table), so it should be better cleaned. Otherwise everything is perfect!
Very clean and cosy. Magnificent breakfast. Fast room service. I surely recommend this one because it's a great buy for this money. Minor thing - if you stay not alone in the room there would be some privacy matters because bathroom has a glassdoor. There were no booking.com reservation when I arrived, but I was lucky they had room I wanted and I showed them my confirmation so everything worked out great. Parking cost me 18$ for the night and at the morning park-machine didn't take my card, which I used minute ago to pay for the room, so I had to come back at the reception.
Everything excellent! Horrible coffee: after two weeks travelling the Baltics this was the worst.
Nice looking rooms, good and helpfull staff Paper thin walls, you can heer every sound from all the rooms around you. Had 2 very bad nights' sleep
I liked the location of the hotel. It was easy to explore the centre of Riga on foot from this hotel. I found my room rather small and the bathroom with its bright lighting rather intrusive.
Very nice location
New, clean Poor breakfast, room service not ip to the level, ot really right in the very center, takes a walk (on a rainy weather doesn't seem to be so near from the main sightseeing)
Everything was excellent. None.
The staff were all excellent and were keen to help at all times and spoke English. The breakfast was very good.
Staff were very helpful and friendly. As a single woman, I found it a pleasant and safe environment. Nice area of Riga with park opposite. Although not in Old Town, I found that a bonus as not overrun with tourists outside. Not so much what I didn't like, but just that large tour groups do stay here and one morning at breakfast over two hundred Americans. Staff worked very hard to keep supply of food going and tables cleared. I was here for six nights and this only happened one morning.
breakfast, room and staff no pool- having to pay to use the pool at the sister hotel
