“Excellent Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2005

Slightly unprepossessing from the outside the Laine Hotel in Riga becomes an altogether different proposition once you have made it to the third floor Reception desk. This hotel is clean, bright, airy, friendly, well situated, and above all excellent value for money. Our room at the top of the building on the seventh floor was the "penthouse suite" but cost the equivalent of only £75 per night. The room itself was very large as was the bathroom and the balcony. The bed was a little firm for our taste but with a well-stocked minibar, satellite television and the main attractions of Riga only a short walk away we could not have chosen a better hotel in which to stay.

Riga Old Town is probably a 15 minute walk away and certainly all the main attractions are within easy walking distance. Breakfast at the Laine was a little uninspiring but eating out in Riga is so ridiculously cheap that having both lunch and dinner out was not a major expense. (It remains to be seen if prices stay the same once Latvia adopt the euro in a couple of years time)

I can highly recommend Riga as a city to visit and the Laine Hotel as a place to stay. There are plenty of more expensive hotels but the Laine has everything you need and it would certainly be our first choice on a return visit.

The hotel is located in a quiet neighborhood near the city centre. It might not look much from the street outside, but when you enter the hotel (which is a few floors of a larger building), things start to look different. The hotel itself has a very nice interior, and the rooms are excellent both design- and function-wise. Some rooms have wired Internet access, which seems to be free. The room I'm staying in (I'm writing this review while staying at the hotel) has a good bathtub and a minibar as well, although they coud put more food/snacks and less beverages in it, in my opinion. The rates are reasonable, athough they have been raised recently its still good value for your money.
