The main advantage is location - very close to railway station and city center. But very quite. It doesnt have parking which also supports this idea. Breakfast was good, room was what we expected. The minus was that heating was poor but two additional electric heaters were enough to make us feel ok. In the buthrooom it was still cool... More

We were staying for 1 night. The room was very small with a double bed but very clean. There was a bathtub in the bathroom. The breakfast was great, the restaurant is very small though. The hotel is in the Old Town of Riga, just a few minutes walk to the Central Station & Dome Cathedral. This hotel is perfect... More

Forums is a basic hotel located in the old town (west side). It is very (very) close to the central bus and train station (2 minutes walk to the Nr 22 bus stop to the airport) and the Riga's traditional food old market (zeppelin old parking premises). It is also close to numerous shopping malls and river Daugava. On the... More

Location of hotel very good-heart of Riga, but rooms were too small and not very clean, also there was strange smell in the room when we arrived. Breakfast was very good. Parking is also not good, far away from hotel.

I stayed here in Augusta, and the weather was warm enough but air condition was perfect in the room. Excellent location - 1 minute walk from shopping center, 2 min walk from bus and train station. Staff is very helpful, with perfect english and russian skills. Enjoyed my stay, will recommend to all my friends willing to visit Riga.

Catch Bus 22 from the airport, get off at Stockmann stop, walk back 50 meters and cross under the underpass, come up on the right side and there you are at the Forums Hotel on Valnu street. A compact 32-room three-star hotel which delivers what you should expect of a three-star hotel. Small rooms, but very clean bathrooms, no air... More

Originally reserved with St. Peter's Botique Hotel. Got off the airplane and got an email St. Peter had a water quality problem and they booked me at the Forums. I suspect the St. Peter was over booked because of the tall ships races and the water problem was not really an issue. St. Peter was a few blocks from the... More
