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

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

Great central location, cosy room (we liked that it looked dated!!) and a big, modern ensuite bathroom. Breakfast was ok and staff fine. Cannot believe some stuck-up reviews on here about it not having a gym/spa...check the details before you book and if you don't like it, put your hand in your pocket and stay elsewhere! We liked this hotel... More

I spend here just one night. My room was in the second floor and it was so tiny! Although it was nicely equipped - with TV, audio system, tes/coffe, mini bar. I also had a tub, as other rooms only have showers. As the room was small, the closet was very narrow, so it might be uncomfortable for the longer... More

A group of 6 of us stayed at the Hotel Monte Kristo in 2 x triple rooms. The rooms were warm and comfortable - perfect for a weekend away. The breakfast was very good - plenty of options including cheese, ham, pancakes, eggs, yoghurts, bread, fruit juice etc. The hotel had a nice atmosphere - obviously not a chain hotel... More

I stayed at the Hotel Monte Kristo during my short stay in Riga back in September 2013. I arrived in Riga by coach from Tallinn, Estonia and found the hotel to be a short distance from the main coach station. After arriving at the hotel, the first issue I noticed was the steps down to the main reception. Now I... More
