“Loved this hotel.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

Our review is similar to chopsgma's. The room was huge, even had a small sitting room attached, with many windows overlooking the park.Big terrycloth robes and slippers were provided and the hot water was plentiful. We were on a 2 week tour of the Baltics and the Europa was hands down the best hotel with the best breakfast buffet. And, it's close to Old Town in one direction and the best of Art Nouveau buildings in another. Wished we could have stayed longer.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the park.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2012

I had read some poor reviews on tripadvisor about this hotel, but it had parking, which was one of our main concerns, so that's where we went, a bit apprehensively. Much to my surprise, it was quite fine. The room was spacious and comfortable, it had both hot and cold water (which somebody had complained about) and overlooked a beautiful park. Service was fine and the restaurant excellent. My only complaint was that the key cards didn't always work, especially in the elevator, but other than that, I would have no qualms about staying here on our next trip to Riga. Location was a bit far from the old town, but certainly walkable.

Room Tip: We were on the third floor and room was perfect.

The hotel may boast 4 stars, but I wouldn't give our room even one star. It is dark and depressing with a tiny window. To see the sky you have to lean out of the window. The colours are dark and dingy. But worst of all, the water pressure is so poor we cannot take a proper shower. We are currently on a tour of the baltics and this is our fourth hotel on the trip. It is by far the most disappointing. All the negative comments contained in other reviews we would agree with. Even the breakfast buffet, which is extensive, contains much which is inedible. Furthermore, we have to wait for clean dishes. They don't seem to have enough chinaware and cutlery. There is never a greeting from the surly staff when entering reception. Our room is in the "new wing". There are wooden rafters bursting through the room from floor to ceiling. I am given to understand that the best rooms are in the older part of the building. Therefore, this hotel is essentially both four star and one star - it depends which room you have. This explains why the reviews are so mixed. We cannot wait to leave this place.

Room Tip: Insist on being accommodated in the old part of the hotel. Look at the room before you agree to take...

This former mansion has been beautifully restored; the staircases are stunning. My room was booked through a tour, overlooked the city garden, was enormous and beautifully furnished. For a single traveler, that's a rarity in Europe. It's close enough to the old town to be convenient. Breakfast was good, in lovely rooms. I didn't want to leave!

I stayed 3 nights in Room 202 at the Europa Royale Hotel. My room was nicely furnished and very large with high ceilings, a big bathroom and 2 twin beds. Check-in was lightning fast, and the breakfast buffet in the very grand Benjamin Restaurant was quite good. This hotel is across the street from a beautiful park, and well-located for visiting Riga's charming Old Town. I'd love to stay here again.

a very good location, about 10 minutes walk to the old town, about the same time to the National Art Gallery and the art neauveu streets and buildings, we really enjoyed the casino on our return to the hotel after dinner, the staff were friendly and the drinks were reasonably priced. We had an excellent room , very spacious and with a high ceiling.
we had one dinner in the hotel restaurant ,which was very well cooked and presented and again a reasonable price
