I had a room on the 5th floor. It was quite big and really clean. What bothered me was that I could not sleep with the a/c on because from time to time it made a very disturbing sound and I could not sleep with the windows open because of the noise in the street :(. So check your room... More

This hotel was perfect in every way. It is located right in the Old Town which is very compact, so it is just a short walk to nearly everything you want to see. Parking was available on the street right outside the building with a parking permit provided by the hotel for €15 per day. The staff was gracious, friendly... More

This is a beautiful hotel, excellently situated, near the Old Town and not far from the magnificent Art Nouveau buildings and the boat trip on the canal. There are comfortable bedrooms, an attractive dining room, a big welcoming bar with snacks, and a most helpful and charming staff. Highly recommended.

I have recently returned from a short break in Riga and was very glad I chose to stay here. There are many great features to the Hotel and we stayed in a Deluxe room - tastefully decorated in light grey. We slept well and then enjoyed our breakfast in the Dining room each morning. Its a short walk to the... More

Great stay, i was there for the second time, and again not disappointed once. Staff was super helpful and extremely nice. Breakfast as always was very good, and parking (paying) was just in front of the hotel, very convenient as well. Would recommend this classic luxury hotel to anyone who likes good value for good quality.

Airport transfer in their Mercedes was most welcome. Only regret was sleeping through breakfast which for the next two days we found beyond great! Excellent location in olde city center. Riga...

We had a lovely stay at this hotel - the staff were incredibly friendly. The rooms were very comfortable and well equipped. But best of all it was about two minutes walk from the main square. I would recommend this hotel to anyone...

The staff is great and very friendly. The lobby is awkwardly set up by nice. I would never stay here again though, actually considering moving out today. The hallway floors have an old wood base, so it sounds like pounding and squeaking when people walk by. In addition, a double bed is two thin twin mattresses pushed together, the toilet... More
