The staff were attentive, the rooms were well appointed, the food was excellent., the location was perfect! If there was such a thing as a perfect hotel, this would be it. The staff were also very friendly - and I believe this trait flowed through to the guests... most guesst keep to themselves in hotels - but I found here... More

Great place in old town. Very good rooms. Extremely good breakfast. Smoked fish of several types. Nice atmosphere. Very cozy staff. Good service in everything. Very bad gym and that's why you can't find any pictures of it and for me it's important.

If you're looking for a place to stay in Riga book this hotel. The hotel itself is beautiful and very well maintained, there's an amazing bar/lounge and a wonderful restaurant. The staff can't do enough to help you. The location is perfect - it's in the old part of the city and you to walk to anywhere that's of interest.... More

Stayed 1 night on business in this grand hotel. Classic style with contemporary luxury. Adequate rooms, professional staff. Bathroom somewhat disappointing. Good breakfast. All in all a good place to stay right in the old town.

Me and my fiancée decided we will get married in or around the old town, so we made a list of hotels and "shopped" around. This was our second stop after Raddison. We forgot to make an appointment, so we called while on the road and asked if we can drop by in 20 mins and it were gladly accommodated.... More

What attracted me first of all before arrival was its location - minutes from everything in the Old Riga. When arrived, to the location I would add the great service. Very attentive staff at the reception - we got answers to all concerns. The room (upgraded at check-in) was quite large with all amenities. VERY CLEAN. Every detail was thought... More

Location of the hotel is superb, 1 min from the Dome! I stayed here three nights with my boyfriend , our room was quite small but the bathroom was big in size. The place was extremely clean. It's a boutique hotel with theme in decoration. The theme of the bar was " hunting" and there are heads of embalmed deer... More

Decor is very traditional, I prefer the more modern design look as per example Bergs, or Dome hotel in Riga. But is a question of taste and the decor is certainly stylish, with a clear theme and well done within it scope of design, plenty of attention to detail. The rooms are great, the equipment, furniture and linen is of... More

My wife and I arrived at 10.45 at night, to be greeted with the words 'Welcome, Mr Thomas'. From that point on nothing was too much bother, with any requests (such as a lighter duvet) being addressed within two or three minutes. I had made serious errors in our restaurant reservations in Riga, but reception quickly provided the solutions, and... More
