We booked this place for friends visiting us in Riga for a week without checking carefully as it's a leading hotel of the world. Big mistake! Service is below par (at checking the receptionist was alone teaching/flirting with a hotel guest while we were waiting... when asked to serve us she said that she was alone and simply continued to...

With the great 360 degree view of the stone town, stay at Grand Palace Hotel in Zanzibar was the great experience which I would recommend to anyone visit the spice Island of Zanzibar. Grand Palace Hotel offers nice room and good hotel service. Besides, it is just walking distance from the port and the famous forodhani area.

Everything was attended to at the highest level of courteousness and efficiency. From the time that we arrived to the time that we departed, all of our encounters with the hotel and restaurant staff was flawless. We look forward to returning to Riga and staying at the Grand Palace.

Recently, I spent three nights at the Grand Palace in Riga. The hotel is centrally located to the old city, within walking distance of the Dome Cathedral as well as St Peters. The building is beautiful and plushly appointed. Only a single elevator services the 5 floors, but two staircases provide additional access. Check-in was quick and managed through two... More

Food at Suite Restaurant poor. Hotel old and dark with low ceilings. Very hard to imagine this as a "Leading Hotel of the World". Would not recommend this property! The hotel boasts that it is "well located". This may be the only redeeming quality. The property itself is quite "down in the heel".

I stayed at this hotel this weekend and I have to say the following; this is not a leading hotel of the world. Yes, it has a great location, descent front office service and attentive staff, but being a Leading hotel of the world comes with certain obligations and anticipations, and this hotel does not deliver sufficiently on these parameters,...

Recently refurbished, this hotel is quiet and unassuming from the outside, on a narrow street just off the Dom Square. Inside it is magnificent, with quiet, helpful and friendly service at very reasonable rates.

As soon as I step into the hotel, immediately I smell a bucket of lilies and feel the genuine 5-star palace mostly because of the elegant atmosphere and luxurious decor which invites you to relax and unwind. This is a first class hotel with excellent service in an old town of Riga and an exquisite property with the perfect location.... More

Centrally located just moments from the main Cathedral square the Grand Palace is only €10 from the airport in a taxi. Arrival was a bit of a pain since the road outside the entrance was full with parked cars requiring us the wheel suitcases a distance along the pavement. Not too much of an issue but having to struggle with... More

I have stayed at this hotel on several occasions, the service is always great & it is difficult to fault the hotel in any way & I am very picky about hotels. The location is great being right next to the centre of Riga, the rooms are spotless & have been modernised recently, the bathrooms are great & the shower... More
