“Very good (not great) hotel near the old town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

Enjoyed staying at the Radisson Blu Ridzene in Riga.

POSITIVES: close to the old town; quiet with a nice ambience. Rooms were nice. Breakfast buffet was excellent; other meals were very good.

NEGATIVES: staff was just ok (some of the staff was excellent; some just ok; and some just were taking up space and collecting a paycheck...especially at breakfast). The staff at the two other Radisson properties we stayed at in the Baltics (Tallinn and Vilnius), were more professionally trained.

OTHER OBSERVATIONS: Parking was below ground (felt very safe)

Overall, a very good choice (just not 5 stars).

We stayed here for a one-week business function in february, and were extremely pleased with the facilities and the location of the hotel. Rooms were lovely and comfortable, and even the ones facing the street were quiet and peaceful. The rooms were quite warm, which was nice, but the "waterproof" undersheets on the beds were a tad too much, and made for a very clammy sleep. easily removed though. The bathroom was fantastic with both a separate shower cabinet and a bath/shower. The breakfast and lunch buffets were excellent with a wide and varied range of foods and the staff very helpful. The hotel had a nice, quiet, peaceful ambience and seemed very well equipped for business functions. Lovely views from both upper floors and from the pyramid dining/breakfast area, and hotel location is really great for Riga's Old town and some of the more picturesque parks.

We enjoyed our stay here- excellent rooms, fine cuisine, tasteful surroundings.

Regrettably a couple travelling with us were stuck in the hotel elevator for 40 minutes until rescued -which seemed to indicate a maintenance problem.

Room Tip: Just check that the elevators are OK

This is a very fine hotel with high standards of service, food and ambience. The rooms are of quite generous size and well equipped. Double glazing excludes city noises and sleep in the good beds is sound and easy. Breakfasts are based on a buffet with both hot and cold dishes, with a large range that should suit mosts tastes. The business lunches are attractively priced and can be taken eithe in the dining room or on the terrace - at least in the summer!
Service was exemplary and the staff are helpful and discreet. Everything was of a high order in keeping with the hotel's 4 star rating.

Stayed there for a week and I can tell that hotel well deserve its 4 stars. Overall the hotel is nice, clean and pleasantly quiet. The room were very clean and had a nice view over the cathedral. Breakfast was excellent, a lot to choose from. Also ordered room service and did not have to wait long. Internet worked alright and at the moment I just find it hard to look for any faults-there is no any.
Would definitely advice to stay there. You won`t regret it.

Everything was as you would expect from a hotel which is almost up to five star standard.
In particular, all the staff I met were extremely competent,and spoke excellent English.
