This hotel is old and you see it. Nevertheless the staff is friendly and competent, the room is OK with good beds The rooms are hot in summer, without a fan/AC in room. It was not too bad, but sleeping with open windows can be a problem if the local teenagers try their motorbikes in front if the hotel at... More

We stayed here for a night on our tour of the Baltic states. Most of our hotels had been fairly modern 4* hotels in the Radisson chain. Kolonna was different. It has a lot of character and once must have been very grand but it has perhaps fallen on harder times. Our room was rather small with a balcony overlooking... More

We stayed overnight to check out the Cesis castle. The location couldn't be better, being pretty much the town centre. Nice building, if a little run-down in places. Room was small and came with steps inside. There was no air conditioning or fan available, must have been over 30 C inside. The street outside is surprisingly loud for being such... More

Late July biking trip. Hot. Ask for fan and they acted as if I was crazy. How about ice? No, although the bar seems to have plenty. (the local groceries had none either.) Small rooms in front with inadequate ventilation and VERY noisy street with youngsters drag racing all night. Do you close the window and suffocate- or open the... More

One of the best breakfast surroundings I have ever had. In a lovely summer morning it is great to have coffee in terrace over the nice garden. The rooms are quit simple compared to hotel decor. Only down side is bad pillows and not so good beds.

We stayed at the Kolonna Cesis for 3 days, corner room on the second floor with the small balcony. It is a hotel in the neo-classic style of the 1930-40s with peaceful interior in warm pastel colors. The location of the hotel in ideal on the main square of the town. Grocery store and 24 H pharmacy are just the... More

If you want to visit the lovely town of Cesis, I think you can't go wrong staying here. The location is ideal for exploring the local attractions such as the castle and church. There's nothing wrong with the hotel, it's just a bit basic. I'd have really appreciated a bar but they don't have one. The receptionist was lovely as... More

First impressions are of a classy hotel as you walk through the main entrance into reception. The rooms are basic but clean and functional. The hotel lacks a bar, but there is a good cafe in the basement. Breakfast is good and plentiful.

Classic interior gives your feeling that you in an old movie, red carpets and hangings in huge windows, lovely. You have everything that you need. Rooms were clean and quite big, existence of bath was also plus. The best thing there was a bread in the breakfast. It was the most delicious bread I have ever eaten, truly!

Clean and comfortable room. No ac but generally not needed. It was a hot night but we just left the window open. Hotel set next to a lovely garden and pond with fountains and resident black swans. Good breakfast. Very close to old town and castle.
