The Grand Palace hotel is perhaps the best hotel I’ve stayed in in our Eastern Europe trip. Everything just seemed perfect --- service, staff, location, room, food. Upon entering the hotel, the lobby smelled of fresh lilium flowers, such a refreshing welcome. Check-in was very smooth, and staff was friendly, courteous and very professional. And I was so impressed with... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel to celebrate our anniversary in October. I called ahead and the hotel was nice enough to help me arrange a car to pick us up at the airport as well as sparkling wine in my room to surprise my wife. They even managed to surprise me when just after getting to our... More

It's unique setting and staff are very helpful food was excellent, but if you are a non smoker you will be alarmed to know that this hotel allows smoking in the bar area that also serves as an area for eating snacks!!! We were offered another area curtained off of the bar but you could still smell smoke from here.... More

Having visited members of Leading Hotel of the World on many occasions, we were looking forward to enjoying the usual high standards expected. Unfortunately this was not to be as the deluxe room we had booked turned out to be on the top floor with a sloping mansard ceiling and roman blinds instead of curtains. The room was claustrophobic and... More

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for your recent review. We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us. Allow me to answer to some of your comments: Our hotel is a historical building (UNESCO monument) and no changes could be made during renovation. When you mentioned to the reception that you were not happy... More

The Grand Palace is in a prime old town location in Riga. It is a smallish very nice facility with a very efficient and friendly staff. The rooms are not particularly luxurious but are more than adequate. They would benefit by a coffee/hot water facility in the room, but the room sizes may make that difficult. The bar and restaurant... More

Rooms are quiet and comfortable and of a reasonable size. The location is superb and the restaurant is quite good. The bar is exceptionally pleasant. Staff is young (as is everyone in Riga), friendly and anxious to please.

The hotel is located right in the old city quarter, a wonderful historical buiding. Very elegant, classic interiors. Rooms are spacious, very comfortable, very well decorated and extremely clean. Staff is very efficient and attentive. A most pleasant stay.

The rooms have no view and are quite small, some gangways are depressing, some less so. A decent hotel with a good location, a very pleasant breakfast room and bar but not a “Grand”, not a “Palace”. A misrepresentation that is not clever at all, it just makes for unhappy clients who would have more happily accepted this quite pleasant... More

Dear guest, Thank you for your visit earlier in July and for finding the time to share your experience. Although we certainly appreciate the kind words about our staff, location and the breakfast room, it is hard to agree our rooms provide no view. With its privileged location in the Old Town of Riga, our hotel features 3 various views... More
