At this hotel everything was as I expected. Hotel Irina has an adorable name, is very well located in Riga and everything was fine. The staff was nice to me too. It is a great hotel, located in central Riga. Indeed I can recommend Hotel Irina!

Hotel is really basic but nice, quiet, staff is pleasent and fluent in english. Room was clean, simple but cozy. Hotel had everything that we needed, only thing that could be much better was breakfast. Coffee was bad, and there should be more warm food to eat. Would recommend this hotel to young couples and to business trips.

The bedroom was nice and cozy. In general terms, hotel was comfortable to stay in Riga for few days. We have no complaints about mattresses cause we slept pretty well. Regarding to heat, we had some problems with it. When we arrived to the bedroom, the temperature was cold, but from second day, it started to get warm. It depends... More

Hotel Irina is very well located, close to the Old Town, the railway station and the 22 bus from / from the Airport. The receptionists speak English and are helpful. My room was on the small side. The bed wasn't particularly comfortable and only had one small pillow. The en suite bathroom was clean, modern and pleasant. Unfortunately, being on... More

Centrally located near the train station and bus stops (great if you need to get to the airport-only 25mins away). The rooms are clean and although the breakfast isn't the best, for the price it's ok.

Very central just across the Train station , 5 minute walk from the bus station and about 3 minute walk away from St Peters Church in old town. The rooms are very small, Thankfully we only had 2 hand luggage's as if we had otherwise then we would have had a big problem regards space. I would say this is... More

It might have been bad luck in getting a room that faced the road but it was generally too noisy to open our windows and at the height of summer this meant putting up with a room that was too hot and without air conditioning. Breakfast was substantial but nothing really tasted of much and the coffee was weak. Staff... More

The Irina is inexpensive, right opposite the main train station and just a few minutes walk from the central square, stay here if you're a poor navigator and won't be spending much time in your room. I'd usually leave a longer review but honestly, apart from it's location and small rooms, this hotel made practically no impression on me...oh, the... More
