“Good clean and simple hotel with good staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Spent a weekend with 4 friends sharing a room for a weekend. It was a simple and clean place with all the basic necessities. Nice staff and very helpful giving all kinds of tips and information. I would not recommend the restaurant for anything more than the most simple meals. All in all I highly recommend it.

Very friendly helpful staff, rooms clean and comfortable, bathroom well equipped with shower over a tub, hairdryer. The taste in decoration is very eclectic and the layout of the building is "different" the reception is on the third floor accessed via an amazing stair case or an old fashioned cage lift. Very central to Riga and we visited all the attractions on foot.

Room Tip: There is no hospitality tray in the rooms.

Feel just like in home.
In a quiet part of Riga but of 5 min of the center of the old City, this hotel is THE place to book.
Very cheap price and great service.
I really recommend it!
If you come from the airport, you don't have to book a taxi.
Just take the company AIR BALTIC and negotiate a price of 10 Lv. It's the general price to the center of Riga.

Laine Hotel is a 3 star hotel located 10 minutes walk from the center of Riga. Rooms are spacious and equipped with a TV. The bathroom has a bathtub and a hairdryer. Almost all of the sights of Riga are within walking distance. In room you can use wireless internet. The hotel serves a breakfast buffet. I especially recommend pancakes.

One of my big requirements for this trip was an internet connection, which is advertised as a free and available ... they put me in Room 4.14, in which the wired internet connection in the wall did not work. Couple this with the fact that the Wi-Fi in this room was too weak to use effectively, and this resulted in me requesting a room move (after 2 hours of trying to unsuccessfully resolve the problem with the staff).

Sadly, they put me in a box room at the top of the hotel with no windows, except a sky-light in the roof. despite assurances that it would be possible to move to another room over the weekend, the weekend staff appeared were unable to deliver on these promises.

On the whole, reasonable location around 15 mins walk from the heart of heart of the old town, and rooms are reasonably priced and to a reasonable standard on the whole (just don't take Room 7.05 on the top floor, although I don't think they tend to hire this out unless they are fully booked).

Downside, is that with any budget hotels you probably won't get the service you'd get with a slightly nicer hotel. Next time, I'll probably pay a little bit more for the peace of mind of having a great stay somewhere.

Room Tip: Avoid Room 7.05 on the top floor, and ask in advance about the internet connection if it's impor...

The hotel is well positioned between the Art Noveau area and the Old Town, so ideal for exploring the city. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and comfortable, but I could detetect the lingering smell of smoke. (I had not requested a non-smoking room.) Opening the windows helped. Breakfast was good with a wide variety of foods to suit all tastes.
