“A true 5* hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

We stayed two times in the Ridzene Hotel during our trip to the Baltics, one night in a standard double room when arriving in Riga and three nights after our trip to Lithuania in a standard twin room.
The twin room was situated in the central part of the hotel and appeared to be slightly bigger.
But also in the other room, we had everything we wished for.
The outside of the hotel looks a bit dated (kind of bad 80s architecture); the inside however is beautiful renovated.
Big plus is the location of the hotel: quiet between the two main parks of the city and still in walking distance of the old city center.
There’s a large outside terrace, which seems in summertime not to be able to compete with the restaurant & café terraces in the city as it was all nights empty. Nice place though to close the day with a beer from the bar.
The hotel has also a car garage which is relatively expensive but so is leaving your car on the street all day.
Staff is ‘Baltic friendly’: very correct and mannerly but a bit detached.
But overall, this was a great home for us when we visited Riga & surroundings and I would recommend it to everybody.

Dear ccverb0100,

Thank you for another great feedback and 5 star ranking. Especially I am happy to hear that you were 100 % pleased with your stays two times on the row, what means it can’t be only luck. Very precise comment on location, as it is just best you can get in the city in order to properly discover Riga! Regarding the building, even the first impression is not so great, it has really interesting history. When the first drawings were done on 1980 it was so revolutionary that local bureaucrats put them for almost 4 years in the shelf. The next interesting fact is that after the finally construction was completed in 1984 it was straightly awarder with best architecture prize USSR wide. For sure inside has been changed dramatically since then.

No question that we are looking forward to welcome you soon back with us for another great experiences!

Best regards from Riga,

Operations Manager

Excellent stay at central city location, near Riga Old Town.
Be carefull to go to right Radisson Blu as there are several Radissons in Riga! :-)

Also, if you come by car - there is also convenient undergroud parking, just you should choose right on-direction street to enter it.

Dear LT_travelerrr,

Thank you for your very short, crisp and positive feedback about our hotel. I have to agree that you need to pay attention to select the right Radisson Blu Hotel in Riga as we have four in together, but even in case you miss it, all four are very nice hotels. To approach our convenient underground parking just need take the Kronvalda street (one way street) and do not miss the turn to left before you pass glass pyramid in front of hotel.

As you enjoyed your stay with us we all look forward to welcome you soon back again.

Best regards from Riga,

My wife and I stayed here for one week. We purposely chose this hotel for it's location. Not in the Old Town but close enough to walk an surrounded by two beautiful parks.

The staff were extremely helpful and very polite. The waitresses in the Pyramid restaurant deserve a special mention. Every morning at breakfast they are impecably turned out and their manners are certainly on a par with any Mayfair hotel I have stayed in.

There is an underground car park where there was always enough space. The hotel is quiet so if you're looking for the "stag do" type of hotel this is not for you. However it is for the more discerning traveller and all the better for it.

The gym is small but adequately equipped and with fantastic views across the city.

Both my wife and I agree we would use this hotel on any return visits to Latvia. We would highly recommend it.

Just back from four days in Riga, couldn't have stayed in a better hotel! I chose the Radisson as I've stayed in other ones around the world so I knew what to expect. And I wasn't disappointed! The location couldn't be better, only a two minute walk to the Freedom Monument and five minutes to the old town. There are beautiful parks on either side of the hotel too. From check in to check out the staff were so helpful and polite. Breakfast was good with a decent selection to choose from. The sauna on the fifth floor was sensational, with views across the park.
All in all a lovely hotel, highly recommended. In fact I already have to friends!

Newest Radisson in Riga. Near by old town and just between two parks. Clean and nice room. We stayed in hotel two nights. Our flight arrived 0830 from Helsinki. By green AirBaltic taxi we were in hotel c. 0930. Fixed taxi fee 10€. Idea was to leave our bags in hotels safety room. Big surprise, polite receptionist advised, that our room was ready for us. No additional charge.

Excellent location by means of go for walk in old town... Or even go for Riga Marathon, like I did. Start area is located 1 km South from hotel. The new shopping center, as well as Stockman and open market are in walking distance. If you want to go for other shopping centers, public transportation is convenient. 24 hours tickets are available. Bus stop near by hotel.

Breakfast was rich and taste. Although same meals were served in both mornings, there were enough possibilities to change the menu. Fast cleaning of tables.

Polite and helpful receptionist also, when we left. We left wit good feeling, because of his natural smile. It was really pleasure to give some Lats tip.
