Very old building, more than 600 years, and very well renovated. The rooms are very sympathetic with flair. Very human size with very pleasant reception: employees are very teking care of the visitors. The area is animated with street musicians of good level: voices are great. The breakfast in the nearby hotel is a good buffet. Nearby you can find... More

Immediately behind the St John's church on a pedestrian street in the old town you are situated in the middle of everything. My room faced the church and had character. One draw back may be that there is no elevator. Reception was very helpful with good english and information. The breakfast is in another bldg. and was possibly the best... More

My friend and I stayed at the Ekes Konvents in June 2012 and we loved this place. The hotel is centrally located (it's right across from the St. John church). We took a bus from the airport to a bus stop hear the church and walked to the hotel. The hotel is so cute and we loved the decoration. The... More

Small hotel with less than 10 rooms in an old building in middle of the old town. We got a very cosy room, double bed and nice bathroom with shower. We had a view towards the church in the front. The women in the reception were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was delicious buffee. It was very early snow end... More

I stayed solo in July. Pro: best location in Riga old cty, adequite breakfast, charming authentic feel. Piece of advice: if you are sensitive to noise (as I am) book the rooms overlooking St John Cathedral, i.e at the side of the hotel building. If you are after the views, then book the facade rooms, overlooking St Peter Cathedral and... More

The hotel is in a house that used to be a convent, and has been refurbished fairly recently. It is and old building, with a very medieval layout to the rooms. This makes it quaint and great to come back to at night to put your head now, but don't expect to spend any time here - it is for... More

The hotel was not ever really a convent in the sense usually used--in the 17th century, a merchant endowed a hostel for widows of the guild members. There are nine rooms in the main facility, opposite St. Peter's Church right in the center of the Old Town. The rooms are comfortable and simply but comfortably decorated with full bathrooms and...

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. The location is fantastic, right in the middle of the historic centre of Riga, but in a quiet street (if you disregard the man playing the flute for hours at night, right in front of the hotel). Buffet breakfast is served in a restaurant nearby and was good with enough to choose... More

Our stay at Ekes Konvents hotel was a great experience. The hotel is well located in the very historic city center. It is the oldest hotel in Riga and the history is everywhere when you enter. Rooms are not big but spacious enough. We asked for a quiet room and we had a room with a street view on Saint... More
