“Traveling in Latvia”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

While visiting friends in Latvia we decided to see some other places. We stayed in Hotel Riga in Riga. There was free parking, which was nice, there was also shuttle bus service provided. We took advantage of the restaurant on the main floor several times, great food. We booked a budget private double room for $45.60 a night. Very reasonable I felt. The room was very comfortable and the beds comfortable. Staff was great from check in to the time we checked out. Very quiet, my only complaint would be the coffee at breakfast. I was glad that it was for the most part a smoke free place.

Room Tip: smokers have a place in the back.

We stayed here in the Summer and used it as a base for exploring Riga. The staff were very helpful although the check in was quite slow even though it was not busy. From near by the hotel you can get a trolley bus (not very expensive) that takes you to the centre of Riga where there are all sorts of interesting sights to see. It is also a short drive to the airport if like us you have a hire car. Internet was very very poor which I found really frustrating, I've decided I would rather a hotel did not provide internet at all than to provide a service that is so slow and crashing like this one. Staff were helpful with directions. Parking round the back no problem.

Location: It's a comfortable cozy hotel not far from the airport. 2 stops from central station by train- in average 5-10 vinutes. Too far to reach centre by foot. It'll take about an hour. Also you can go by trolley, its stop not far from hotel.
Rooms are small and include everything necessary. But if you need hair-dryer/ iron - you need to ask at the reception. No safe in room, no fridge.
Good breakfast included (thugh we wern't told that it's free and 3 first days we paid for it). Also rather good restaurant
Good wi-fi coverage
Quiet place
Nice staff
Total experience: it's worth its price

Good free parking and wifi. Location is ok if you have a car, not so far from the city center.
Breakfast was good (except coffee).
Room was small and narrow (especially in a shower), outdated interior and no hairdryer. Uncomfortable creaking bed.
We did reservation in hotel - 2 adults and 1 (6 year old) child. After we paid for our room we found out that there is no extra bed for child and if we want it, we have to pay extra. There was only one blanket for two people.

Room Tip: Choose the room in the newer part of the hotel.

If you are not ready to pay much for a city-centre but want to live in a well-equiped hotel - Best is for you. Nice rooms, rather big, free large parking, good breakfast. 15 minutes from the city-centre by train, which stay near by.

About 3 months ago i decided to visit Riga with some friends I booked 2 rooms, they responded back in no time that every thing was OK. When we arrived at the airport the taxi driver was waiting for us although we where about 50 minutes late because of a delay. When we arrived at the hotel we where greeted by the GM and the receptionist and helped us to carry the bags.
The fist thing I have noticed about this hotel is that it was very clean. When we entered the room we found every thing ready such as drinking glasses towels and so on. The bed was very cozy and comfortable. The shower was not that big but it was good,The breakfast was very good too with my favorite food and there was a very good verity. The receptionists where like our tour guides telling us what to do and where to go and even helped up to travel to a neighbor town. And another good thing is that a taxi was always there ready to take us or to pick us where ever we go.
THANKS TO ALL THE STAFF AT BEST HOTEL YOU MADE OUR HOLIDAY MEMORABLE .

Room Tip: If you are a smoker ask for a room at the back of the hotel there's a door where you can smoke.

We needed a place to stay overnight after a celebration in the city. And we got it. The hotel was nice, with all facilities needed. The stuff was pleasant and helpful. We enjoyed it. I offer this hotel for those who are going to stay in Riga, are traveling by car. But for those, qwho would like to have a rest in hotel, spa and so on, this hotel isn't suitable.
