Walk-able distance from the bus station, allthough finding this hotel may be tough if you dont have your GPS coz the board on the side which faces the main road camouflages with the paint. Had a pleasant experience staying at the Hanza over a weekend. Courteous and helpful staff,(English speaking too). We had an economy reservation but where being upgraded... More

Stayed four nights in March. Good staff. Comfortable room (solo in a double). Above average breakfast. Helpful police in Riga - patrol car led me to the hotel which can be awkward to find the first time and not having my GPS.

We were a quiet and polite stag party from England, we weren't expecting much but this hotel is fantastic. Very modern and clean everything you would need for a few days away. If you are a stag party looking for something a bit more upmarket than a hostel book here. Lovely staff always willing to help out. Simone in the... More

A well located hotel just a 10 minute walk from the city centre, yet in a very quiet area. The standard rooms are basic but very comfortable and pleasant on the eye. I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a good base for a city break. Nice breakfast too! If you book early through the hotels website... More

We spent in Hanza Hotel 3 nights. It's very clean and quiet. The staff is very nice and helpful. We liked breakfasts very much. The hotel is located just a few minutes walk from the old town, railway station and central market. There was only one thing we didn't like: from our room on 5th floor we could easily observe...

Just came back from a 1 night stay at this hotel! Can't fault it, great location, just behind the train station through a market. Safe to walk at night. Rooms very clean and modern. Good breakfast in the morning but it gets really crowded so we had to go back to our room and come back down in 20 minutes.

The hotel is in a quiet area. We had a lovely view from our room of the Lutheran Church and a pretty square. It is close to the covered market, which is surrounded by huge numbers of open market stalls. The hotel is also convenient for the bus and railway stations. You enter into a lovely atrium where the reception... More

I stayed here for 3 nights and it was great value, my room was small but it was clean. It was minus 3 outside but the heater and hot shower did their job very well. The hotel is located in a quiet area but not well lit at night so I can understand why some people might not feel safe... More
