Inside and out full of character and simple charm. Warm welcoming and spotlessly clean throughout plus a great value stay. You need to go with the flow with this property and enjoy the ambiance , shut your eyes and step back in time. Open the shutters fully and embrace the vibe of the Old Town below. Recommending both restaurants either... More

The Ekes Konvent is a great B&B if you want to get a feel of what it may have been like to live in this area 600 years ago! The rooms though small are flooded with sunlight, and have ensuite bath with a great shower. There is a terrific view of the square and St. Peter's church. There is always... More

Breakfast has being served at the building next door and it was buffet. No Wifi in the room but hey we are... More

Take with you warm socks and ask for an extra blanket (staff will provide you with one with a smile) and do not rely on the hair dryer, otherwise great stay, interesting building, nice spacious bathroom, friendly staff. Although the room was mentioned to be "extra small" it was spacious enough for two people, no room for extra bed, though.... More

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

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
