This small, 13-room, hotel has a great location - 2 minutes walk from the National Opera and no more than 5 minutes from any of the top 10 sights in Riga's Old Town. Plus, it is on a really quiet side-street with no passing traffic.
Well appointed rooms - each decorated in a unique style - gets you miles away from the Radisson/Best Western carbon-copy feel of time away. Very comfortable beds, great bathrooms and always very warm (it was between minus 4 and minus 12 outside while we were in Riga).
Plenty to eat at breakfast and a very helpful waitress eager to make pancakes, omlettes, etc besides the varied array of meats, cheeses, fruits, cereals and pastries.
Reasonable rates - we paid 51 LATs for a double room including breakfast and all taxes - however, VAT is to rise soon in Latvia and this will affect all prices for tourists.
If we returned to the city, we'd certainly book again at the Viesturs.
