The Hotel Vecriga is perfectly located in the heart of Old Town Riga. For those driving, there is a 24-hour parking lot (20 Euros a day, with attendant) a half-block away, but you have to navigate some very narrow streets to find it.

Booked as an anniversary treat. Great location as most sights are within walking distance. However no heating and it was cold and damp. Had hairdryer on to warm myself up. Smoking area great but not cleaned all day. Empty bottles and overflowing ashtrays. Room service and restaraunt doesn't exist. Can't even get a cup of coffee in this place. Lots... More

Location is excellent - in the heart of old Riga, walking distance from most attractions. Room was very nice as well. Room was warm in winter, and wifi was working. Breakfast was alright, the breakfast room was beautiful though. Service was quite friendly.
