“Nice hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Stayed there several times. Staff very professional. Location superb facing the old town (if you will get a room facing the river). Hotel is kind of split in two parts. One is "old" and the other more modern. Recently I stayed only in the " old" part - which was about 70 EUR or so. They promised me if I will stay there more often they will put me into the " new" part :) Internet is fast, from lattelekom with low latency. 2Mbit in out. Breakfast is something what brings me back to this hotel again and again - it is just one of the best breakfasts I had in any hotels all over the world. There is also parking for cars at about 10 EUR per night which is okay. About 250 meters from the hotel is a bus stop which has bus 22 stopping there and for 1 EUR (70 santims) will bring you to the airport. Same way some there. Rooms are dated but functional and with decent soundproof. Lunch and Dinner is VERY expensive in this hotel even by European standards. Although quality of the food is average (not to be mistaken with breakfast, which is excellent). Area is moderately safe I would say (never had issues there, but I would not say it felt safe at night :) ). You can get into the old town by just crossing the brined - in about 10 minutes. Very good connection to transportation. You don't really need those expensive taxis outside the hotel - Bus to airport 200 meter away. Old talk a walk away, or public transport near by.

Dear FreakWentTraveler,

Thank you very much for your kind comments. I am especially pleased to hear that you appreciate our service and breakfast offering! You are also right in saying that we have a fantastic view from our river side rooms facing the old town - simply the best view in town.

We are also in a process of re-evaluating our lunch and dinner product and prices, so hopefully you will see some positive changes in that area soon as well.

Once again, thank you for your positive and constructive feedback! It is always appreciated.

I am looking forward to seeing you back in our hotel soon again - this time perhaps in the 'new' part ;)

Best regards,

Mika Virtanen
General Manager

One of the first modern hotels in Riga, but time passes and it's time to renovate if you want to continue charge the prices they are charging today. If you plan to spend time in the old town I would look for hotel closer to old town. Service and food in the restaurant - excellent!

The Hotel is a bit 1980s in decor but the staff keep the place clean and go out of their way to be helpful and friendly. The pool and gym are decent and there are some good running routes out the hotel and along the river.

The views are good across to the old town which is a ten minute walk across the bridge. Always felt safe even when walking back at night but taxis an option.

A couple of attractions on this side of the river too, state library, a good train museum and the gun club regros down in an old soviet bunker.

Breakfast good, liked the hotel and feel it offers a good value package.

Room Tip: One facing the river

We were very pleasantly surprised to be in a suite overlooking the river. It was very nice, clean and comfortable, as was the rest of the hotel. The staff were all excellent and very friendly. We only had breakfast in the hotel but the quality and variety of the food was great.
The hotel free transport into the town was great, but it is a very pleasant 20 minute walk if it`s not snowing.
If I was to be picky I would like a quicker service at reception because if there are people checking in or out it does delay you if you need help with something.
Some refurbishment is needed but it did not detract from the enjoyment of our week`s stay at this very good hotel.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 8th floor and it was very quiet. It`s a much better view if you overlook the Daugav...

Room was clean and comfortable. Hotel is easy to find, quite close to city centre. Parking was free of charge during the night on the street. I liked the hotel fitness centre. In fitness centre is also indoor swimming pool and saunas.

I've stayed in Radisson Daugava on my recent stay in Latvia. The hotel itself reminds me a bit Italian (so called 4-star) hotels on the Adriatic coast. Big, chunky, concrete, white thing. The next unpleasant surprise, my Club Carlson Gold status was not honored by the hotel. No room upgrade, nothing. Very disappointing. Moving further... The room was tiny but clean. Furnitures definitely remember better times and are crying for replacement. It is getting even more obvious when you enter the bathroom. Very old, but don't confuse with vintage. Simply very old.

Now a few good things - very nice service in pub and restaurant. Also nice food. Beautiful view on the river. And I'm afraid that would be all...

Suming up... Definitely you can get much better value for money in other hotels in Riga. And don't expect special treatment if you're Carlson Gold/Concierge.
