My stay at the hotel was nothing but perfect! I was upgraded to a larger room at check-in at no additional charge! For me, nothing is special about European breakfasts. You come to accept them. I liked the location as it is not right in Old Town. I had no problems walking around at any time in the area.

The room on the 4th floor was small but clean and comfortable. It was quiet at the back of the hotel apart from the people in the next room had their TV on at 3 am for half an hour. The breakfast room is way too small for the number of guests but the food choice is good. Parking is... More

For places of similar price in Riga I definitely think you can do better with your choice of hotel. I was disappointed that there was really no aspect of this hotel that stood out. I asked just a couple questions of the desk staff (a place to run and a restaurant recommendation) and had poor suggestions on both. In fact... More

I was looking for a cheap hotel to stay in Latvia and came across this little gem. I use tripadvisor for all my hotel needs and again came across some bad reviews. On arriving at the hotel from the airport you should pay no more than 15 euros The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room had a... More

The hotel is about 10 minutes walk from the old town. The room was tiny with OK size bathroom. The customer service was good. Breakfast was average. It was in the basement and it was really packed in the morning. Some people were taking their food outside to eat. We stayed here in July and it was really hot (... More

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
