Very silent based hotel in Riga. Nice rooms, very basic but clean. Prices were good for what you get. Too bad there's no elevator (6th floor was quite a long trip without elevator!) Friendly staff and a-maaa-zing coffee! Definitely worth it if you're looking for a basic hotel for a nice price!

We had one night stay at this nice place, which maybe have seen better days. Best thing is very fine, friendly and kindness service. Room were clean, and we did sleep well. Breakfast was aldo fine. One night costs 45,50 €! Neighborhood is what it is, ugly, but oldtown is near.

You get what you pay for, and even a bit more. There's share bathroom and kitchen, but the rooms are big. The breakfast was surprisingly good. It's about 15 minuts walk to the Old City, and there's a lot to see on the road. Recommended!

On this trip I was looking to spend as little money as possible, so I was willing to put up with inconveniences. I was pleasantly surprised. The place was clean, the breakfast was decent, and the internet was amazing.

I stayed at the Guesthouse Jakob Lenz for one night in room 210. Location is spot on, based on a quiet side street, not far from the city enter and Riga old town. Breakfast was included and the guy on reception was friendly. Suited for budget travellers.

Ive stayed here for 6 months and those are my honest reviews about what happened througout my stay in here. Hotel is in a great location its very very close to the Old Town and I was quite happy with the location. BUT the attitude to the students are incredibly different than regular 'customers'. Kitchen supplies are very very old.... More

The manager of the guesthouse is absolutely rude, with no respect for costumers. She yelled at my friend for no reason. Unrespectful to students for sure! Lying about accomodation during personal inquiries. Their principle of work: pay, if you dont like it, then leave,but we won't give your money back. We talked to other guests here and they were also... More

I stayed at the Jacob Lenz Hotel while doing family business in Riga. The room was cozy and quiet. However, the bathroom wasn't the cleanest and smelled constantly of sewage. The breakfast was great. Nice variety of food and very consistent. The staff was very nice and helpful. Wifi was great all the time. I really liked the location. It... More

The place was cheap, but I don't believe, I want to go back. Our room smelled bad, shared bathrooms and showers were filthy and we had trouble with our door. Still the service was very good, and the staff was helpful. Breakfast was also very good, basic and good. If you're looking for a place to stay for one night... More
