We very much enjoyed our stay at Hotel Justus, which couldn't really be better located in Old Town Riga. Less expensive than the Neiburgs Hotel across the street, we were hard pressed to find anything wrong with it. The place was very clean; the bed was very comfortable; the bathroom was quite modern; the shower was probably the most comfortable... More

If you are travelling by car your GPS you may find this hotel difficult to find.Even the police couldn't help us with dirsctions.If it wasn't for a young man personally taking us to the hotel I think we'd still be searching.Contact the hotel prior and ask for directions. Once you get there you will need another map to get you... More

My partner and I recently spent four nights in a Superior Room at Hotel Justus and were extremely pleased with the accommodations. First off, the hotel is in a great location, right in the center of the Old Town and within a short walking distance of nearly everything you'd want to see in Riga. Second, the property is so quaint... More

Don't get me wrong this hotel is beautiful and is in a fantastic location..... However I asked the staff for one extra pillow during my stay and the hotel staff told me that the hotel only has one pillow per guest and keep no spears. I don't think this is really expectable for a hotel that claims to be 4... More

We stayed here when the first snowfall hit Riga in January. The location of the hotel is very good but the room walls are very thin, one side there is brick but the other side I think is Cardboard ? I could hear people in the corridor and the TV from the next room. The service at the reception was... More

The joy of Riga is the old town, and this hotel is right in the centre of it. We covered everything in our guide book within easy walking distance, 5 mins to two of the main squares. The staff were very friendly and helpful; they printed my boarding passes for the return flight. Breakfast buffet was great and changes were... More

Just returned home last night from a 4-night stay in this hotel. So glad we chose this one as the location couldn't have been better. One minute walk in one direction was the Cathedral Square with all the little open air cafes and meeting point for tours etc and same distance in the opposite direction was another lovely square with...

We were thinking of staying in one of the modern hotels just outside the old town. Instead we choose Hotel Justus (if you are telling a taxi driver it is a silent J, so pronounced "Ustus"), we caught a taxi from the Tallink ferry terminal and to the Bus station, you should pay 5 to 6 euro. It was too... More

Staying just for 1 night (on the way back to Riga's airport). Initially, I thought that we had had the wrong selection (very narrow street and an especial facade).BUT, everything was excellent. A break from the center, very confortable rooms, very clean, the service was special and the breakfast was excellent (The best we had during our 12 days all... More

Visiting Riga, you want to stay in the old town. Hotel Justus is very well located, inside the old town, just two blocks from the river, close to everything. We were there in May 2014, stayed 4 nights. They nicely upgraded our room when we arrived , so we had a nice suite in the back of the building, we... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Four-star boutique Hotel Justus is located in the very of the old town of Riga, literally a few steps away from the famous Dome cathedral, within the architectural area protected by UNESCO as a part of world heritage. The immaculate renovation of the historical building was completed by April 2009, and so today the authentic facade conceals 45 cosy rooms uniquely designed to embrace the charm of genuine brickwork combined with fascinating art objects, antique as well as contemporary. Personalised service matched with attractive pricing policy makes Hotel Justus of great interest for a wide range of guests. The hotel’s site possesses high historical value, since it was part of the plot of land selected by Bishop Albert as the location for his Baltic residence back in 1210. However, the medieval wooden housing was destroyed by the fire in the 17th century, so the architectural ensemble comprising Jauniela Street today dates back to the 18th century. The facade of the hotel itself underwent the last major alteration in 1874. The building hosted a tavern in the early 19th century that was later replaced by typography and lithography services, in the 20th century it was occupied by artisan workshops, pharmaceutical laboratories, and then a cinema gallery and offices. Charms of architecture and historical atmosphere made this place a favourite shooting spot of Soviet movie-makers. Now the hotel belongs to a small group of friends that has spotted an empty run-down building and revived it with artistic energy.Idea of making restaurant Aleks comes from the simple desire to enjoy Riga of the beginning of the previous century. Interior is made from the household items of those times, which gives the restaurant unique look. ... more   less
