The Hanza hotel is somewhat out of the way, but easy to locate thanks to being right behind the big science building ("Lenin's Birthday Cake"). Everything is new and nice, if a little bit cramped. Friendly staff and thoughtful, tasteful details make this feel like a more expensive hotel than what it is. The room is spacious enough and comes... More

Stayed for one night and was most impressed with the helpful staff. Central to Riga's old town too. Our room overlooked an old church and the downstairs bar was cosy and also the location for an ample buffet breakfast which was included in the cost of the room. Happy to stay here again :) and recommend to other travellers.

Great hotel with very helpful staff. Our room on the top floor was modern and spacious with a great view and comfy bed. Easy walking distance to the city centre through the main market but we'll away from any noise. Would recommend this hotel based on my experience.

Have stayed here before, different impressions every time. This time the room was a big disappointment: small room towards the dirty inner yard, with neighbours having full view of your room from the outside. A small group of rooms are placed a bit aside, off the main corridor. 301-304 on my floor, probably the same series on the other floors,... More

We stayed here for four nights during our Riga city trip. We both really liked this hotel. The room is very spacious, the bathroom was modern and also had plenty of space. The beds were good. Location of the hotel is very nice. It's not in the middle of the city centre, so you don't have all the city centre... More

Really enjoyed our stay here. We were on the 6th floor overlooking the courtyard and the room was lovely and quiet, and comfortable. Breakfast was OK, not special, but acceptable. Staff were great especially the waiting staff in the outside bar and restaurant. My only complaint would be that the blinds let too much light in- in the middle of... More

The room was large, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good and they serve very good food at restaurant outside. Receptionists were kind enough to print out the bus timetable to go to the airport, to book a taxi, to communicate well with a non-English-speaking taxi driver. The bathroom was large with a bathtub so I enjoyed a relaxing bath time... More

I say this hotel is a hidden gem. Hidden, because it's located outside old town, in a historic district called Maskavas. This district used to be the russian district and later on during the war, the jewish ghetto. At first sight looks a bit scary, if you don't know the history, but it's safe and great to walk around and... More

We were a little worried walking the ten minutes from the bus station through a bit of a run down neighbourhood. As it turned out that was our only complaint. We had a large room on the fourth floor with quaint interior shutters looking over the square, while the bathroom has been redone and is pretty chic. The trek to... More
