Easy to find when taking a bus from the airport to the center. Breakfast was good, rooms quite big and clean but the staff was being weird but that's their thing in Latvia I guess. Would recommend this if you are travelling on a budget!

Excellent location in Old Town. Rooms are clean but for me the decoration was a little bit too dark. That of course wasn't a problem after all. There's a lift to every floor. Breakfast was decent. There were not any problems with noise coming from outside. Staff was friendly and they asked all the questions I had and they gave... More

Me, my hubby and son went on a three night stay to Riga to visit my youngest son. We shared a room to keep costs down and booked a three person room at the Forums. It is situated in the old town, on a cobbled street next to the Australian Back packers Bar (do not be put off, we never... More

We had one night in Riga after a family wedding in Jelgeva. We arrived before checking in time but courteous staff allowed us to leave our 3 cases. When we checked in we found a clean, comfortable room and bathroom. The fridge was well stocked. The breakfast was well presented and there was a wide range of breakfast foods and... More

We liked this hotel, the staff were helpful calling us a taxi to the airport and stowing our bags for the day of departure. The location is excellent you can walk to everything. The rooms were spotlessly clean with comfortable beds and everything you need, serviced daily. The breakfast was ok, strange combinations of foods but fresh hot and plentiful... More

Our mission was to live close to our destination : Latvia's National Opera house, where we were to see several reserved shows, that we were thrilled about.The hotel Forums we chose, came along with our flight to Riga. Since we didn´t do enough research before leaving town for Riga and... More

I booked one night because it was special rate but non-refundable. I was slightly surprised why the window was open in my room when I arrived because it was pretty cold in March. I realized very quickly as soon as I closed it. A terrible smell arise from a severe plumbing problem was a reason. It was also unpleasant crowd... More

We spent two nights at The Forums Hotel and for just two nights it was OK. The best about this hotel was the location and the nice and friendly staff. The room was very small (Economy). If we come back we certainly will upgrade to a better room. The receptionist told me that some rooms even had balcony. The breakfast... More

Very close to the bus station and the railway station (5 minutes of walking), located in the Old Town of Riga. The room was small and a bit run down but clean. Unfortunately, there were no pegs (which obviously used to be there before) in the bathroom, which was a bit uncomfortable. You could also hear the noise from other... More
