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

Perfect location, in between the old town and the central market/bus station/train station. The room was a bit run down, but that also added to the charm. Stayed in a standard room, with a view towards the central market. Tram station on the street below, which runs all night long, but I was not really bothered as I am a... More

Wonderfull place situated in medieval part of Riga but not far from railway and bus station and shoping center. Good breakfast, kind staff (english, russian, latvian languages). Nice room, comfortable bed.

The best location for the best price! In the heart of old town, everything is so close! We booked two twin rooms, one was in ground floor and other in first floor, the first floor room was better, becouse you couldn't hear the guests in the hall. It's a best choice for short stay! And receptionists was very friendly and... More

I selected the Forums Hotel for my recent two-day stay in Riga based on location and price. It proved to be a good choice in both areas. Nothing fancy here but a good solid value hotel. Nicely located on the edge of Riga's wonderful Old Town with easy access to cafes, restaurants, shopping and public transportation. Room was of decent... More

We were 6 guys on a weekend break. For us this was the ideal place. Super location, super value, rooms were basic but clean and the staff helpful. There were issues on checkout whereby some other guests tried to charge drinks to our room but staff quickly dealt with it. It suited us given we were 6 lads but I... More

Looking at the other reviews I really cannot understand why some people had a bad time. The staff was very helpfuland kind - sometimes even to my numerous, annoying requests. Internet fast, breakfast worth the deal. Total price - considerably cheap. Quiet and perfectly located. The room had a bath and a mini bar. TV, though, had only 4 channels,... More
