Beatiful high quality hotel in Riga. Good for business travelling, but could be also a place for romantic holiday.

Great breakfast and warm service. Food in evening restaurant average.

Good location close to center and river.

Really enjoyed our stay here - the chap on reception was attentive and quickly helped us. We were also able to check in just after 2pm which was welcome. The hotel is just off the park by the old town so very convenient. Breakfast was plentiful and good quality. I used the gym and whilst small, it had enough for a quick work out. Recommended.

According to the local guide books this is supposed to be the best hotel in Riga, but it was our misfortune to be there during some "high up" EU conference.
We got a side room on the second floor, very peculiarly shaped that left one little space to maneuver- but otherwise well appointed.
Our group was on half board but they informed us that we will have to go for dinner at the sister hotel across the park- not too bad if it wasn't raining and/or 4 degrees centigrade outside. They did not offer any transport.

Dear AvguyKfarSaba_Israel,
Best regards to sunny Israel,
Thank you for taking your valuable time in order to supply us with feedback on your stay.

As we are one of the 5 star top hotels in Riga we do receive high end official delegations, but
in most of the cases there is almost zero disturbance to other guest as we are trying to manage
it in most professional way. I am really sorry to hear that you had to walk over the park by bad weather conditions and this situation was not managed in the most proper way.

As beside that I cannot identify any negative comment from your side regarding your stay with, I
assume you enjoyed it and we can count on your future reservation with us.

Best regards from Riga and see you soon back with us,

Janis Valodze

As we only had the weekend in Riga we wanted to stay at a hotel close to the Old Town.
We were pleased to experience the hotel was just that !! Within 5 minutes walking distance and the hotel fully met our expectations, in service, style and friendliness by the staff.
We got a twin bed room on the 4th floor with view towards the Old Town, the room was actually recommended by the staff at the front desk.
The breakfast buffet offered a large variety of fruits, bread, eggs, cheese, sausages, jam and pastry.
We hope to return again another time.

Room Tip: Ask the staff at the front desk. They are so willing to help to make your stay a pleasant one.

We stayed here for two nights in August 2013 during our Baltic Tour – see below for all hotels stayed.

The hotel is well located for Riga – just a short walk into town.

The biggest comment we have about the room was its size – or more to the point lack of it. It was very narrow – to such an extent that we had to take it in turns to move about the room. Fortunately we did not spend too much time in the room.
There is a Safe.
The bathroom was also small (only a shower) - both shower doors move so make sure they are both closed. The towels were reasonably sized and good thickness. Shower pressure was excellent.
Wardrobe was also small – the main clothes rail was at right angle to the door so not easy to get at clothes.

Our tour included breakfast, which was the usual continental fare and plenty of it.

The other hotels we stayed in during our Travel Editions Baltic Tour:
HOTEL PK ILMARINE – Tallinn (3nights)
ARTIS CENTRUM HOTEL – Vilnius (2 nights)
The tour was excellent – can recommend it.

Dear GOMCP,

Thank you for choosing our hotel and for generally positive comments.
I we are really sorry that you were not able to enjoy your stay fully because
of the rooms size. As it is already historical building we cannot change the
size of it but I can ensure that we are looking forward how we could reorganize
some of rooms during the coming years that they become even more convenient.
In the meanwhile we are happy to offer you as well Superior and Business Class rooms
which are bigger size.

We definitely look forward to welcoming you next Summer back with us.

Don't get me wrong. This is a business hotel, all right. But its location, amenities, cleanness, price/performance ratio makes it "easily" the best hotel to stay in Riga.

This is my second stay in Radisson Blu Ridzene. In the first one, I stayed alone for business purposes. And now on this second one, we stayed as a family of three. Our room was a "business class" room on the 3rd floor. The room area was really large and comfortable, having a separate restroom togather with a large bath room with tub and also a separate shower. Needless to say all the bath amenities were high class and quailty items as expected from a Radisson. The wifi was complimentary but it comes and goes from time to time. Nothing really bothering... The bads were large and comfortable. The room had a Nespresso machine, fully filled mini-bar, iron+ironing board and a safe. It also had a flat TV, but Riga is too beautiful to sit and watch TV, so we haven't got the chance to even turn it on once. We had our breakfasts in the hotel's restaurant "Pyramid" which is surely a high class one. The buffet was more than enough in variety with no problems what so ever. Sit there and watch the rain with a hot coffee at your hand -- or better do this in the outside sitting area of the restaurant if not too cold. The distance between the hotel and the old town is just right. It is far enough from the hustle and close enough to walk after a long night.

You should also visit both of the parks which the hotel is very close to, take the canal ride in park, sail through the Daugava river and have wonderful photo shots.

Riga is a gem. Take one day to Jurmala and visit the Majori beach. Marvellous...

Dear Toygar K,

Greetings to sunny Turkey and thank you for the fantastic review. Actually I can just say WOW, looks like we have really done something right if you are taking so much of your valuable time to give us proper and such a positive review. Same time I got the feeling that you almost fall in love with our beauty Riga, what happens to people quite often. This makes me believe that on some day you will definitely come back and I look forward to welcome you for sure in our hotel again.
