“Perfect budget option”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2010

I travel to Riga 2-4 times per year. Every time I stay in Jurnieks hotel. I share double room with my colleague. We stay there normally for 2 nights. It seems it is the best budget option in Riga.

The district where the hotel located in not very nice, but the hotel itself is located in a small quiet street. It is possible to park a car free of charge which was very important for us. Maxima supermarket is in 3 min walking distance, close to tram stop. It takes approximately 20 min to go to Riga Old Town with the tram. Another option is to order taxi via hotel, they can also organize taxi to pick you up in the city. The taxi from the Old Town would cost roughly 8 LVL which is reasonable price.

The rooms are clean and comfortable. There is also sauna in the hotel!
Internet is available via WiFi or it is possible to use PC room.

The only negative thing which I remember is that in September it was already terribly cold but the central heating in the hotel was not yet operating. So it might be better to look for another option during this period of year.

We stayed with my husband for 2 days. The price was excellent and service as well. Hotel Jurnieks located in 20 minute drive from old Riga. It is very easy to get with tram Nr. 5 direcly to the old town. As well we went to Riga Zoo and rent there bycikles.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2006

Traveler beware: stay away from this hotel! We booked a triple room for 1 night in June 2006 and it was the worst experience we've ever encountered out of all of the hotels we have ever stayed. The receptionist was extremely rude, allowing other customers to interrupt while she was checking us in but when we interjected; she ignored us completely. A "triple" room is a very tiny twin room with an extra bed full of dust. There was barely any room for the third filthy bed, we had to block our only entrance to the room for the extra bed. This is a fire hazard and if there had been a fire, we would have been in grave danger. They delivered the extra bed while we were out and left the bed outside our door because even they couldn't figure out where to put it. The hotel is located in a shady neighborhood where homeless people wander the streets. The bedsheets don't cover the entire bed and the sheets look and feel filthy. The bathrooms are also beyond filthy, the shower head was full of mold and the shower head arm fell apart while one of us was in the shower. Also other guests treated us like dirt when cutting in line and when we spoke up that we were also hotel guests, the other guests responded that they were more important - the receptionist ignored us and helped her choice of guest. Kids were running around playing tag in the hallway and elevator making our tiny room shake until 3 AM. Dogs were barking in the middle of the night, people were constantly yelling or loud vehicles would drive by, allowing us to sleep no more than 10 minutes at a time. Stay away from Hotel Jurnierks!
