Nice, clean hotel. Breakfast is quite basic. Price was great! Location was a bit loud on weekend nights.

We stayed at this hotel as a couple for 2 nights in August 2011. We paid about £45 per night which seemed to be a pretty good deal.

The best thing about this hotel has to be the location of it! It is right in the middle of the old town just off the main square but also located on a street with another smaller square with a few restaurants / bars and some souvenir stalls on it. You really cannot beat this location as you have everything on your door step. When you do a lot of walking around the city, it is nice at the end of a long day to not have to go far to be back in your hotel room.

The hotel itself was very nice. The rooms were plenty big enough, light and airy and clean and comfortable. Small downside was that it was 2 single beds pushed together rather than 1 double but we coped with that just fine! The rooms were cleaned daily and fresh towels left out.

The lady on reception was very friendly and nice. The other reception staff were also helpful.

The breakfast was included in the price of the room and was the usual continental breakfast of cereal, yoghurt, cold meats, salad etc. It was perfectly fine, nothing amazing but similar to what we have experienced in other hotels so no complaints. There is a very nice cake / pastry shop across the road from the hotel and so if you can always get some extra food there. However, the buffet was perfectly fine to give you a good start for the day.

There was also free Wi-fi which worked fine and was useful.

If we go back to Riga we will definitely stay here again!

The hotel is located in the old town and it is in a safeti place. The staff is nice and helpful and our room was a 3 bed and it was large, clean and confortable. The cleaners passed everi morning and soap towels and everithing was alwais replaced and new. The TV was working (but u pai for movies and internet even if u pai a little price). The onli bad point was the breakfast which was realli realli poor: 2 iogurts (to drink), coffee and juices, some old biscuits and toasts with butter marmelade and some salt things but the things were poor and people had to wait for them to replace the things. No fruit or black!People usualli went out and bought things in front of the hotel where is a good shop for sweets and everithing and also veri cheap. Bi the wai I would recommend this hotel absoluteli because the price is ok and it has everithing u need for ur holidai. the shower was warm and ok. Good choice, realli!

We went there for Easter (late April) so the tourist season was just about to begin. Nice and friendly staff in this hotel. The rooms are clean and nice, the breakfast was adequate, but not more. It is situated in the middle of the Old Town, which means that everything is very close at hand, including the cafés and bars across the street. That also means that there is a lot of people everywhere, so the noise could be disturbing if you are sensitive to that. Bring ear plugs! But the staff will try to find you a quiet(er) room, if you ask for it.

We stayed at the kolonna hotel in riga in oct! The hotel was great!
Ideall located and not noisy at all as some of the reviews were suggesting.
The staff were incredibly friendly, providing maps and information on the town with tips on where to eat.
breakfast was what you would expect, cereal, bread, cheese, ham!
the rooms were clean and tidied every day.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone! (Its by far a 5 star hotel, but does what it says on the tin!!)
Some friends of ours stayed in a hostel around the corner paying much more than us and not half as nice!
recommend a visit to the latvian occupational museum! Lido is good for traditional latvian fast food, (just opposite the hotel) plus theres also a lovely cake / bakery opposite where you can bob in for a coffee and cake!

Second time in Riga but certainly won't be going back to The Kolonna. The rooms were tiny, beds uncomfotable and the music blaring out from the main square below sleep depriving. The biggest complaint, however , is regarding the way we were spoken too when checking in. The guy was nonchalant and when we waited in line to ask questions later that day we were blatantly ignored. The experience hasn't put me off Riga however thankfully.
