This hotel is located very centrally in old riga. It is clean and the staff are very helpful. The standard room we got was spacious enough for our needs. I asked for a quiet room. We were on the 5th floor so we didn't hear any noise from the street unless the window was open. The breakfast was strange, cheap... More

Nice hotel in a brilliant location to see everything - decent breakfast too. Couldn't fault anything - really loved Riga as well and the people were very helpful and friendly. Can imagine that it might be noisy on a weekend but we went Sunday to Thursday so was fine.

Pleasant place once you find it. Good breakfast. Great restaurants nearby in Old Riga. Quiet but thin walls. Pleasant staff. Parking available. Shower in my room was unusual but worked fine. Easy to walk to everything in old Riga once you find it.

Eclectic. This is the best word to describe Hotel Justus. What type of hotel is this, really? For a business stay it definitely lacks working table, but for a romantic stay two tiny separate blankets on double bed is nothing more but mockery. You can’t say it lacks style, but what kind of style is that? It’s a mishmash of... More

Perfect location, nice clean bespoke rooms with renovated original beams etc. ideally located in old town which can be walked round in a day. Close to all bars and restaurants. I'd easily stay here again was a very quiet chilled hotel. 1 gripe, the quilt covers were 2 Singles and not a double so had to keep pulling them back... More

We stayed at the Justus for a short break in February, the location couldn't have been better. 15 minutes (or thereabouts) from the airport; the journey there with an airport taxi (12 euros) was cheaper than the return journey with a hotel-booked taxi. Our room was not ready on arrival (11.:30), not a problem though, we just went off to... More

This hotel is located in the center of the old town in Riga. Great location, it was part of the Dom Cathedral in the past, so ancient historical things can be seen in this hotel. For instance, the piece of wall from 14th century, and the closet in my room which was made over 140 years ago... Not only the... More

I stayed 3 nights in February. The price was very good, of course it is the low season and probably another price in July. The best with the hotel was the location, close to everything, walking distance everywhere. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was a bit different, you could choose from different food, more like... More

Alright, but it could be a lot better with just a few tweaks! The room we had was small and stuffy, and bathroom smelled if the door was shut so we kept it open all the time and often had the window open to get fresh air in the room. Rather chilly in February! The pillows and duvets are so... 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
