“Good value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2012

For a budget hotel, this was great value for money. Considering the price we paid, we got a very good deal. We had two bedroom suite, which we weren't expecting and it was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was very nice, enough choice to keep most people happy and the staff were friendly, helpful and very polite.

Hotel was a little bit of a walk from the city centre but not a problem. Have to give this hotel full marks

At this hotel you get value for your money. The staff is very helpful and polite and the breakfast buffe is good. The rooms are not more then standard but clean and comfortable. Overall this is a great hotel with walking distance to Old city and good restaurants.

I came to Riga from Tallinn, and I found that Hotel TIA was not so central. You have to walk about 2 kilometres before getting into the center. The neighborhood is not that fantastic either.
Service was average, the room was clean, but not that big, and the bathroom was not quite new.
I had to pay for breakfast which was really nothing special, the coffee for example did not taste like coffee at all.
All in all, it was okay, but next time, I would probably find another hotel

Have just came back after spending a few days at the Tia Hotel, and I must say that the staff were friendly, efficient and that the hotel itself was clean and well maintained. I looked forward to the breakfast each morning because it was a buffet style so there was a good choice of food to choose from and every thing was more than I expected. The City itself was wonderful, and what I liked most was that it was sooo clean - the only offputting thing was the graffiti on certain parts of the city which I thought was a bit of a down point but other than that the Latvians should be proud of their wonderful city with so much to see and do - it's a must for all tourists and I would recommend to all my friends and family to go over and visit it.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2011

Stayed here recently on our tour of the Baltic countries. I was impressed by the hotel after having spent the previous three nights in Vilnius. The rooms were basic but were clean and everything worked well. Our room even had a fridge and they included a free bottle of champagne since we mentioned that we were on our honeymoon. The staff at the front desk were great to worth with. They returned emails promptly. They even had items we inquired about marked out on a map when we arrived. They helped us out with taking public transportation and printed out our bus tickets for our journey on to Tallinn. The only negative that I think about was that even though our room and I believe the hotel is smoke free on more than one occasion we could smell people smoking. On a couple occasions it was coming from the stairwell even though it said not to do this in the hotel guide book. Another time it smelled like it was coming from the room next door. It also can be a little noisy at times since the room's doors and walls are somewhat thin. It wasn't too bad but was noticeable at times. Overall, I would recommend this hotel. Great staff to work with and very good location. It is about a 15 minute walk into the Old Town area. Also, if I might add we enjoyed Riga much more so than we did Vilnius. It is obviously a much bigger city but there is a nice blend of restaurants, parks, and an old town area to walk around in that seemed lacking in Vilnius.

We found this hotel through booking.com and we got a great deal. For the amount we were paying for this room, the room was excellent. Very clean,comfortable and cozy rooms. The breakfast was very good. Very good value for money.

The staff are efficient and helpful but not very friendly.

The only drawback of this hotel is the location..it is a little far from the old town. It is walkable and we walked to the old town and back everyday. People who don't like walking may find this place a little far.

The art Nouveau district of riga is very closeby and walkable. We walked to it back and forth everyday. I definitely recommend this hotel for people who don;t mind walking a little bit.

The Airport bus can be taken from the front gate of Esplanade..and if you are carrying heavy bags..it is walkable..

The hotel is easy to reach by bus from the railway station. I think I could take some 1:30 from airport to the hotel using public transportation (which is, btw, an efficient way to move around).
You can walk downtown but this would take a while.
There is a Lido restaurant (I advise to eat there) some 10mns walking from the hotel.

Breakfast was not the best and we had to use somekind of congress room because the actual breakfast room was being renovated (at least they said so).

Staff in the hotel is friendly.
The elevator is incredibly small and the room we had did not offer such a pleasant view. Room was noisy and you could easy ear what people were talkin behind your door (I guess they could ear us too!).
