I have stayed in another local hotel in the past, but this has sadly closed, so last week I took a chance and booked the Riga, based on good reviews I have seen here. I wasn't disappointed. From the outside this communist-era tower block looks uninspiring, but many of the floors have had a revamp. I booked an executive room,... More

A Communist era showpiece which proved to be a very happy surprise once inside. Very good reception with (seemingly always) a competent speaker of English on duty. I always go budget and must agree with some critical reports of cheaper rooms being dated, needing refits. refurbs etc. But all was clean and in good order (if a tad shabby). Quite... More

After a taxi ride from hell from Bucharest airport in the pitch black we eventually arrived at the hotel and judging by the outside just hoped the sheets were clean, wow this hotel is fabulous. Superb reception area with a very modern bar and very pleasant staff who upgraded us to superior rooms which had everything you'd expect from a... More

I made a late check-in, in dark. Saw three type of rooms before I choose mine. There are totally different, and the prices vary a lot, but to fit the difference accordingly. I went with a Superior, because the others were quite old for me. But it is good for a person, stuck in a city, unpredicted, to have the... More

This was one of the best places I have stayed for a great price. When we arrived we found out we had booked incorrectly and had only booked for 1 instead of 2, they instantly worked it out for us and upgraded us to a beautiful superior room. The view was wonderful with a lovely view of the Danube and... More

Stayed at the Hotel Riga after a gruelling 83 mile cycle ride in the hot sun and with a dodgy knee...from the outside it's not the best looking, tall tower block of old school communist design that you might choose to pass by. Staff were instantly helpful and friendly, storing bikes securely and we were upgraded to better rooms, I... More

The building is horrible from outside , but inside they are restoring most of the floors. Floor 10 where I was is really nice fresh and clean. The reception is managed by a smiling girl able to answer most of the questions. A 40 minute massage only 20 lev... That' a life!!!

This is an old soviet style hotel. It's not bad, but old... They have a few newly renovated rooms on the top floors, these are "European standard". Spend your money on these... They are still half the price from Europe... And with a great view over the city and river. Breakfast was not so good, here they still have something... More

We happened to be in Ruse and spent one night in this hotel. Location is good and the view over the river was beautiful, but that was all about it. As we were staying only one night we wanted to book a standard room. However we were prompted at the reception to upgrade to a "standard plus" and advised to... More
