A traditional hotel in a good place for exploring Riga's attractions on foot. Reasonably close to the 'bus station where we arrived and departed. Our room was fine, clean and quiet. Breakfast was a buffet, and ample. The staff could have been more helpful; an ice-pack for the ankle I twisted on the cobbles was not possible because "The restaurant... More

Very simple three stars hotel, clean with helpful service, located near the train station but also near the centre, the central bus station and tha main general market. Few malls with a lot of shops and supermarket of good quality. Simple but nice with a full standard nord european breakfast with some hot food.When in Riga... meet Irina.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2015

Its advertised as a 3 star hotel which is perhaps arguable but I'd say its about right. It's really a no frills hotel that is walking distance from the central station 5 minutes and also to the city centre 10 minutes (they're in opposite directions by the way). Hotel is clean, rooms comfortable and breakfast is ok, although not always... More

This is a 3 star hotel, no frills and good value. The room I had was very clean, smart and although a little dated, it was very well situated being a 5-10 minute walk from the old town. Staff were efficient and a free breakfast was provided which I didn't have as I chose to go out for breakfast.

The Hotel has everything you may need during a trip. The position is highly strategic, the prices are good compared to the competitors in the city, the breakfast is included and is not so bad, the people working at reception are helpful and kind. I would strongly reccomend to reinforce the wi-fi connection (free but with some problems showing its... More

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
