A lovely hotel with street parking. A quiet area - apart from the bin men at 5:00 am one morning, but we had the windows open. Very helpful staff and very well priced. 10/15 mins walk through the local market to the Old Town. Would come back again.

The room was large, clean, sunny and comfortable. The location is good as it is only 5 minutes to bus stop and 10 minutes walk to the old town, but I would not recommend walking alone around the hotel late night.

Hanza Hotel fraudulently charged my debit card over $700 on NOvember 24th 2013, and claims I authorized this use. I did not. I was told by booking.com that I was "holding" a reservation while I worked out whether I would need those dates at their hotel. I have written several emails to them trying to rectify this issue, and they... More

We don't usually eat at hotel restaurants, but ended up eating several meals here due to the quality, selection, and value of the menu choices. In fact, our meals at the Hanza Hotel's restaurant were some of our better meals in Riga!
