An quaint and quirky hotel in the heart of old Riga. Its very old and the rooms are a testament to this. Huge thick wooden beams and supports throughout the room, warm wood everywhere and a floor that sloped so much you could actually feel the gradient! It was a little narrow but spacious enough and you have to take... More

It is located in the center of the old town near the Riga's Cathedral and only 20 min from the airport. Very cleaned and a really good food. The receptionist very very polite and also helpful. The room very romantic. A really good relation between price and service.👍👍👍👍

Stayed for one night from Friday to Saturday. Location very good,central,in the old town. About the appearance of the hotel it's already much said in other reviews. Stayed in room 201, second floor, next to the elevator,so could hear it working and other guests coming home late.Behind the window a small street with a bar - so also a loud... More

Quirky style hotel with chintzy decor plus timber beams and wonky floors in the old part of the building. Our room (Junior Suite) was quiet, clean and spacious, wi-fi reception was good. There were problems: the shower had fallen off the bathroom wall and some of the power sockets were broken. Didn't bother us much but a shame as they... More

We've been to Riga quite a few times - always staying at the other end of the old city. But, this time we ended up at Gutenbergs Hotel, which was as good as the reviews indicated. The location was great, the staff friendly, the room large with a lot of character (like thick wooden beams in the ceiling and other... More

You cannot beat the location of the Gutenbergs Hotel in the old city area of Riga. Everything was convenient to the hotel and it was nice to return after hours of sightseeing just to drop off purchases and have a short rest. The Front Desk staff was very friendly, helpful, and customer service oriented. I had the most dealings with... More

The Gutenbergs Hotel has become the hotel of choice when visiting Riga, due to its location in Old Town Riga, and the feel of the establishment. I have always stayed in the same 4th floor room, in the older part of the hotel, and found the original timber beams and sloping floors add to the experience. The location is perfect... More

A really central hotel with lots of character. The hotel seems to be divided into two sections - one which looks like it's 19th century and one which is older (think lots of wooden beams). It was really handy for all the sites in the Old Town with nowhere more than a 10 minute walk and the market only 20... More

When we were there work was being done on the restaurant so I can't comment on that and you have to allow for the disturbance that caused. Rooms comfortable but ours opened onto the foyer and other guests could be very noisy when they came in. Staff very accommodating and couldn't be better situated.

Located in an old building centrally in old town Riga with the impressive Dome Cathedral as the next door neighbor, this is a perfect location for visiting Riga and have more or less everything within walking distance. The hotel is "old fashion" all through in layout and interior design, and the thematic rooms are very nice (even though ours was... More
