We have chosen a big Board Room Suite for our romantic stay - we had the wedding anniversary. The hotel management welcomed us with a bottle of good champagne, which is always +100 points to the hotel :) The room is very spacious and is actually better, than on the website photos. The French bath adds a romantic fleur to... More

If you are looking for a comfortable hotel with character and within the old town I would highly recommend this hotel. The suite (3 element) we had on the second floor was very very spacious. Virtually no noise from outside as the windows face the inner courtyard. Only thing they need to fix is the slow wifi but cannot take... More

Very good little hotel right in the Old Town. Comfortable room, helpful staff and a varied and adequate breakfast. There is no lift so carrying luggage up and down the stairs could be tricky but we were met by a very courteous staff member who assisted us on arrival. An abundance of excellent restaurants and bars within easy walking distance.... More

When we first checked in we were given a nice enough room on the 2nd floor facing the courtyard. We weren't very happy when we saw that the shower had no separation from the rest of the bathroom floor as we know what kind of a mess that can potentially result in. We were prepared to deal with that though... More

The location of the hotel is absolutely great, it is literally in the center of the old town, however, this also is the main cause of noise, as it is quite loud outside. The room is nice and cozy, bath was moldy but the rest of the bath room was pretty clean and modern looking. WIFI is absolutely hopeless, couldnt... More

Huh, payed 245€ for two nights. At first room no proper wifi. Got moved to "suite", with grumpy corners, moldy bath in a same space than beds and everything. No wash basin in a toilet, poor lightment all over. Staff is very kind at reception, breakfast personnel could get some improvement.

We arrived at Merchant's House around 6pm with no reservation. We were greeted pleasantly by Fjorrod and Prit (? spelling) who immediately accommodated our request. Throughout our 2 days there they were beyond helpful re: places to eat/drink as well as helping us secure seats on the bus to Riga when we were unable to reserve online. The grounds are... More

The location can not be better in the middle of the old town. Fro there you have avcess to most of the attractions and/or activities a tourist is looking for. The... More

You will be conveniently located in the Old Town. The staff is very pleasant and helpful. The rooms are in two old buildings joined together with quirky staircases. Each room is unique, they are not cookie cutters. We enjoyed the bathrobes provided and took a cleansing and rejuvenating sauna in their modern basement spa. There is an interior courtyard for...

Location is perfect for old town visits, all the staff are extremely helpful and pleasant, some of the best I have come across, made us feel welcome instantly, rooms are good size, ours had courtyard view which was pleasant, terrific breakfast in restaurant.
