I took a double room for 3 nights via Booking.com and was very pleasantly surprised with the place. The public bus from the airport knew the place so dropped me right outside the hotel. Room was small but had everything I could ask for (except they could've offered a complimentary bottle of water). Breakfast had a wide variety of Latvian... More

This hotel is below average in Riga. I've been in many different places from 60 to 100 eur range and this is one of the worst experiences. Some rooms are facing the street which can be noisy until 5 am, left wing of the hotel doesn't have a lift, service in the restaurant is slooooow and quality is below average.... More

We had the suite on the first floor and the room was big and had a great atmosphere. There was a full size fridge-freezer in the room and a lot of closets. The bathroom could look nicer, but the jacuzzi was spacious and we had our own sauna. We were travelling with our 5 months old baby and were delighted... More

Nice and cheap. Located within 5 minutes walk from the Old Riga. All staff are very nice, friendly and helpful. Also they serve pretty nice breakfast. The best room - is the room on the first floor with a balcony.

This hotel is in a great location only a short walk from the centre of Riga and it's shops, bars, restaurants and many other tourist attractions. The hotel itself is clean although I'm sure that it would get more than a 3 star rating in the UK. As part of a large party I saw a number of the rooms.... More

The hotel is 5 mins walk from the bus/train station and convenient for the airport bus (22). The welcome on check I was fine and our room on the third floor was accessible by lift but then involved going up and down 2 sets of stairs - not a problem for us but could be for others. Our room (32)... More

We stayed once again with a large group, and it was a good experience. You cannot beat the location in the Old Town across from the bus station. Everything in close proximity, including a shopping Galleria with supermarket a 3 minute walk away. Some rooms larger than others, but all are comfortable. Breakfast is excellent, with lots of choice regarding... More

We have just returned from 3 days at the Monte Kristo. Lovely quiet hotel on a side street in the old town. This couldn't be better situated. The rooms, although smalll, were well equipped and cosy. A couple of bars next door were the obvious choice for that well deserved nightcap. A slight groan - The breakfast choice could be... More
