You can walk to almost all photogenic place of the old town Riga. It was very nice experience. Staff was full of hospitality and kindness, and the room was very comfortable. I would like to stay Grand palace hotel Riga next time.

We enjoyed our stay very much. The staff was really friendly and so helpful. The location of the hotel is great. The room and the interior of the bar is lovely. The breakfast was delicious. Also we much appreciate the private transfer from airport to the hotel, which is a great opportunity.

Our visit to Riga capped off a fortnight touring Scandinavia, and the Baltic experience was a highlight of the trip. Located in a fantastic heritage building in the centre of Old Town, the Grand Palace epitomises the perfect fusion of traditional charm and modern luxury. The professionalism and courtesy of the service was evident from the moment we were greeted... More

We were given a less than 'deluxe' room, which after some time and pressure was miraculously changed. Avoid a top floor room in the summer, because the air conditioner does not cope. The staff were bordering on the supercilious and the reception is set up so that guests are put in seats below the desk and the concierge and receptionist... More

We stayed at the Grand Palace Hotel for 1 night. The hotel is located in a quiet part of Old Town but very close to everything. Our room was spotless. However, it was rather small and the AC unit was very noisy. Also, you could hear the showers from the other rooms. The breakfast had a lot of variety including... More

I have stayed at the Grand Palace in Riga twice now. Both times I was impressed by the beautiful accommodations and the friendly staff. For my second stay, my mother was with me. The airline lost my mother's suitcase and the reception staff called the airport regularly to check on it. The breakfast was delicious with many choices- a wonderful... More

Charming hotel in old Riga. Super friendly and helpful staff. Great bar with a good vibe... like an old library (smoking allowed) Remarkably good food with an international feel. The rooms are a bit small.
