The atmosphere is in the walls
The architectural style of our beautiful house is influenced by the wooden buildings built in southern and central Europe at the end of the 19th century. The house is a fine example of a variation of the Swiss Style combined with pointed and asymmetric Gothic characteristics. People meeting each other in a comfortable and inspiring environment means a lot and this is why we have made such big efforts to retain the original charm of the house both inside and outside. This contributes to a creative environment and cosy home atmosphere.
Run away from home!
Sometimes it can be so nice just to leave everyday life behind, get away from everything and be spoiled. It is so seldom you have time to indulge yourself in that “something extra” in good company and that is why we at Albert have some really wonderful offers to remedy that. We have several different packages to choose from – everything from a congenial Friday evening to a golf arrangement. Settle it right away – visit our web site and make plans for your escape now.
A meeting place with a high comfort factor

We have conference packages to suit your requirements. Our conference facilities can accommodate from 10 to 100 people and are equipped with all the customary equipment. If you require other arrangements or equipment, we can fix most things. You can enjoy the comfort of our rooms which all have access to a private balcony or terrace with a view of the waterfalls and Trollhättan. If you want to participate in some exciting activities in between conference times, we have a lot to choose from. Why not prepare the evening dinner in the gourmet school?

We can also help you to arrange activities of your own choice outside Albert.

Thoughtfulness about every aspect of the environment
At Albert Kök Hotell & Konferens we persistently strive after sensible environmental thinking. Some examples; we use soil/rock heating to heat the hotel, we buy environmentally-friendly chemicals and printed matter and we select local farm produce. Since we prefer to use ecological products we contribute to limiting the use of artificial fertilizers, chemical pesticides and energy. Both the restaurant and hotel are environmentally certified according to the Swan criteria.
Local farm produce is good for the environment By using local ecological farm produce we help to reduce transport costs and the big bonus is that we get meat, poultry, fish and vegetables that taste so much better.
Welcome home to Albert!
Albert’s owners are Rickard Halleröd, Christoffer Florén and Svante Tengblad, all with long experience in the hotel and restaurant branch. Our mutual endeavour is to create a hotel and restaurant business of the highest class. Together with our personnel we want you as our guest to experience something over and above the usual. Our philosophy is that guests visiting us should not only feel like our hotel guest but also a guest of the family. This is the reason why we have tried so hard to get the feeling of being at home deeply imbedded into the walls.
The History of Albert
Our beautiful house was built in 1857. Engineer Eduard Leopold Albert and his wife Maria bought the house in 1880. Eduard had spent a few years in Russia to assist in the building of the Trans Siberian railway. This had made him economically independent. Eduard Albert decided to divide the land around Strömslund into building plots for working families. He assisted with the building plans, regulations and loans. Strömslund became a real model community and the object of study for ensuing social planning. Eduard lived in the house nearly 50 years. Maria unfortunately died in childbirth but managed to establish the foundation of The Maria Albert nursing home in Trollhättan. Eduard Leopold Albert was otherwise a very colourful person who was conductive in the development of Trollhättan. When we took over the property in 2000 it felt perfectly natural to name the place after Albert.
