Stayed here 2 nights. Good hotel, downside is that it is located in a more industrial area outside the center. The tramstop however, is within walking distance. Line 5 will take you to the center. My room (# 74) was spacious, 2 x single bed, the bathroom was well equiped and the hotel overall was clean. The restaurant for breakfast... More

The only downside with the Karavella hotel is it's location, which is around 2 km from the old town, although the trip goes nicely with the tram nr. 5. The hotel itself is in the middle of regular Riga neighborhood, with a Maxima-grocery store within 5 min (by the closest tram stop). The hotel is newly renovated so everything is... More

Although it was a bit tricky getting there and surroundings aren't the best one, the hotel itself was really nice. Fast check-in, really big room and bathroom. Dinner was great and food was perfect, although appetiser could have come sooner. If I'd need a place to stay in Riga, I would think about staying in Karavella again.

This hotel is very good choice if you are travelling with your car. Superior room is big enough for family with two children. The view out of window is better than in Twin rooms, but you can compensate it by excellent panoramic view out of restaurant which is situated on highest floor. Good breakfast, friendly staff. Air-conditioning works well, but... More

Walking from the hotel to tram stop about within 7 mins and taken to shopping about 10-15 minutes. Lots of nice places in Riga. There are very... More

The hotel has a good restaurant and comfortable rooms, as well as friendly staff and reasonable prices. The location is a bit out of the center, but a quick tram ride is all you need to reach the main part of town. They also took helpfully accpept payment in euros as well as lats.
