Lovely hotel in the Old Town, near to everything that we wanted to see and do (and just around the corner from the opera house). Friendly helpful staff with good English language skills, good quality simple breakfast, and clean room. I couldn't find fault with the hotel and would certainly stay there again.

Pros: great location, highly attentive and friendly staff (especially Victoria, who was amazing), good price in a traditional 'old style' hotel. Cons: the rooms are noisy from other guests and the street below. The breakfast is fairly modest. We enjoyed our stay but if we went to a Riga again we might stay in the city near great restaurants, cafés... More

The hotel is well located, right in the city centre and 5 minutes from the bus station. Our room was very basic and with had an old fashion decoration. The negative about the bathroom was that everytime we showered, the floor became very wet. The TV signal in the room was bad but wifi on the other hand was very... More

Stayed in this hotel for 3 nights/4 days in May of this year and I could not have found a better location to explore Riga from, it is the in centre of the old town and within easy reach of many places of interest. Even though the hotel is near the centre of town is is very quite... More

The good parts - a very good location and yes most rooms would be very quiet which is a big bonus in Riga as many hotels are on streets where noise could be a big issue. It is an old building and has charm. At 85 Euros it was not a bargain. Our particular room was quite large and the... More

Nice and quiet hotel in the center of Riga. If you stay in Riga for only a short time like we did, this hotel is very recommendable because it is located in the middle of the center. You can go sightseeing by foot and many restaurants are nearby. The rooms are a bit old fashioned but clean. By the way:... More

if you want to stay in Old Town Riga in an old authentic hotel - this might be the one. The hotel is in the center of town but in a quiet street. It is small (25 rooms) and rooms are relatively small as well. I booked a superior double room and there was just enough space for one person.... More

We stayed here recently. Our room was small for the price, had only a shower, and was not good value. The breakfast was only fair, at best. The location is good but, because Riga's Old Town is so concentrated, all the downtown hotels are well located. Most troubling for us was the lack of an elevator and lack of porter's... More

Some of the reviews for this hotel are a little negative so while the rate was good, I arrived with a little trepidation. I should not have worried as this was a great little hotel in a quiet street in the old town. We were in a room above the kitchen of the 'sister' restaurant; this might make the room... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Hotel Vecriga and had a great time there - very friendly staff, awesome location, cozy room, nice restaurant. Its a great value for that money! Be sure to enjoy morning coffee on a hotel's sunny terrace and ask staff to recommend you some hotspots around the city.
