the hotel is in a nice quiet area off Riga and in a central location for all off Old Riga. The room we had was on he fourth floor and still with wooden beams, very nice. All staff were very helpful and breakfast was a delight. If you choose Riga as a Holiday break you can't go wrong with this... More

I haven't even been here a whole night and already, I'm regretting my choice. Although quaint and centrally located, I can hear every creak, footstep and voice! Not to mention the blaring music outside! And this is what they call the quiet room!

We had a wonderful five-night stay at the hotel, which is first rate and real value for money. Service from the reception staff was always friendly and helpful and the ample breakfast was well staffed with attentive personnel. Our rooms were located on the third floor and were all clean, spacious and quiet. The location is just perfect to visit... More

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.πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

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
