This hotel was ideally located for us because we were traveling by bus, and it was just across the street from the bus terminal. The rooms were tiny and ours was just above the streetcar turnaround, so the noise was extreme. There was no AC so we had to sleep with our window open in the intense heat. We left... More

Everything in the hotel costs money. WIFI, TV in English. But the rooms are quite big, but well the hotel seems to be outdated a lot. And yeah as many other reports. No working elevator. But the location is very good, smack down center and you are able to get a reasonable meal in the morning as well.

The Metropole hotel is the oldest hotel in Riga and although it has been completely renovated still retains its 19th century charm. The hotel is located within the old town (on the edge) and is very close to the bus station (about a 5 min walk) and the train station (10min walk). Room size is average but clean. The bathroom...

Location: Excellent, just on the north-eastern edge of the old town, close to shopping malls and the central station. Distance to the center of old town is really short, don't let the scale of the maps fool you. Room: The bedroom was big, spacious and bright, with big windows. We got a room facing the courtyard, so it was very... More

Me and my daughter aged 13 lived here for a couple of days i December 2011. Lived, or slept actually, when we were not shopping or having dinner. This hotel gives you a good night sleep, close to everything, even the street, but not really that annoying. It is old but well kept, and gives a good nostalgic feeling. We... More

I visited with my wife Hotel Metropole in Riga 01.12 - 03.12.2011. If you want some history combined with modern comfort, you will enjoy staying at the oldest hotel in Riga, built in 1871 and completely renovated in 1992 in Scandinavian style decor. The owner of this hotel is Mr Åkesson from Sweden. It is a 4 star hotel located... More

The hotel is located on the edge of the old town and close to the bus stop for the number 22 bus to the airport. I was given a complimentary drink voucher on checking in. I had booked a single room which was on the second floor and was facing away from the road so there was no noise from... More

They put us at the 5th floor and there was no lift! They told us that it will be "repaired" next day but I saw the Escape Plan and the lift was beyond a plywood fence! As a review here, the hotel is "smaller". They are splitting the hotel in two! They lied to us.

Hotel was recomended by the information bureau. The room was nice and clean. The breakfast buffet was excellent. The price was reasonable for this type of hotel and at the edge of the old town.

As I have stayed at Metropole already seven times during three years I can call myself as professional when it comes to this matter. As my point of view Metropole is nice, cozy hotel but not four stars in my standards. However, I go back there every time when I need to go to Riga for business. Staff is helpful... More
