Stayed at the Hotel for one night at the end of July in room 210. Location was spot on, based on a quiet side street, not far from the city enter and old town. Room had enough space for my needs. WIFI worked perfectly and the internet speed was great. Included breakfast was a bonus for the price. The guy... More

Guesthouse Jakob Lenz is right in the heart of the Art Nouveau District. The hotel is clean and the staff is welcoming and helpful. Additionally, you are an easy walk through parks to Old Town Riga. Parking is available as well. Definitely worth the look if staying on a budget while near the heart is things if important

I stayed here three times and enjoyed each one. All the rooms were very very clean and the bathrooms were kept well also. The front staff were helpful and knowledgeable. It is located about a 10-15 min walk from the new city and about 20-30 minutes from the old town. There is a large grocery story 5 minutes away as... More

This is a great budget Guesthouse in a slightly delapidated (but by no means seedy) residential district on the northern fringe of the art-nouveau district of Riga. About 25-30 minutes walk from bus or train station, but the walk itself (either through the Kronvalda Parks or the art nouveau district itself) is very attractive. Rooms were cosy, clean and quiet...

We stayed at this place for 2 nights in summer.The location is alright, walking distance to the old town. After the whole day of walking you might be a little hesitant to walk back tho. It has a safe carpark in the court yards. The room was good size but not in the best condition. The courtain had come undone... More

We loved this place, dont be put off by its location down a shabby side street.A fine old building with stone floors and an iron spiral staircase-full of atmosphere, large airy rooms and an excellent breakfast plus good service.It is situated right next to the spectacular Art Noveau district of Riga.The only downside is that any not very fit guests...

While in Tallinn, Estonia I attempted to book Guesthouse Jakob Lenz online. All went well until I got into the booking page which was only in Estonian. I did note that the rates for the dates I wanted were 27-29 euros. Subsequently, I tried to book with other English-language Web sites but the booking page never came up. So we... More

We spent 3 nights in this hostel. Very clean, big enough room, helpful and friendly staff and free internet (when it works..). A special mention for breakfast, definitely the best I've ever found in a hostel. Situated in a quiet street in the middle of the Art Noveau district, just 10/15 mins walking from the old town. Highly raccomended to... More

Before we came to Riga, we heard that Riga is quite an expensive city so we were happy to find Jakob Lenz guesthouse. It is a nice guesthouse with special sort of atmosphere. It is something between a hostel and a hotel. Personally, I don't like sterile hotels, I'd rather stay in a budget hotel with a "soul". We were... More
