We had a wonderful few days at the Grand Hotel Riga in Ruse. Our room was clean and well-furnished. All of the upper level rooms, "Executive" rooms, are recently renovated - I think the lower level rooms aren't so modern. Be aware of this when booking. The lower scores on reviews seem to be from people who have booked the... More

I was there for one night in executive double room. Staff on reception was very friendly. I got 10th floor, as they explained, newly renovated. And it really was, it smelled like a new. View to the Danube and the city was really perfect. In the room there was welcome fruit and cookies, free bottles of watter, free tea and... More

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
