“Warm and friendly hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2011

Staff very friendly and helpful. Hotel warm and comfortable. Basic Buffet breakfast but served till noon at weekends. Location very good in central Market area and 10min walk 2 old town where main attractions are. Beautiful restoration of old Riga building with modern interior. Great value through booking.com almost half price!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2011

Staff was very friendly from arrival until leaving. They helped us with every question we had.
Room was clean and spacious (dbl bed). Hotel is located in the area where is church and one embassy (Belarussia?) so it's quiet and streets are quite clean. It takes about 15 minutes to walk old town from hotel. Breakfast was good and hotel's restaurant was nicely decorated (seafaring theme).

Only minus comes from poorly sound isolated door. When drunken hotel customers came back from the bars we woke up to noise coming from corridor.

The Hanza hotel is about 10/15 minutes walk from the city centre - only 5 minutes from the train station in a quiet street next to a lovely church. There are some beautiful wooden buildings on the street too and buses to Salaspils stop just down the street. From our top floor room we had a fabulous view of the church - the only slight downside to this was when it was lit up at night it was slightly light in the room while sleeping. this would only bother you if you needed complete darkness to sleep, as there was only a blind rather than curtains. The bathroom had a bath with shower - although there was no shower curtain so the water did go on the floor. Usually we have issues with showers because we are both very tall but this one was great, the bathroom was huge and very modern. The beds were 2 singles together as in most other European locations and very comfortable. There was also a spacious wardrobe, table, TV etc. The room was very spacious and modern, the hotel staff were very friendly and the restaurant food was delicious and surprisingly good value. We ate a full dinner in the restaurant with big beers. There were also offers that came with the room for the restuarant as well. Breakfast was good there was a wide range of choice of hot sausages and egg plus bread and meats and cheese, a typical European buffet. This hotel would suit couples or families who want to get a good night's sleep but don't want traffic noise or crazy drunks keeping them awake. There was free internet on a PC in the lobby too.

Great hotel, very friendly and helpful staff, everything in the hotel we needed.

Really enjoyed the food and the live music.

Would recommend this to others and would go back. A little out of town 5 mins in a cab.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2010

The hotel is very comfortable and located within short distance of the city center. It offers a good variety of rooms (standard to suite) as well as a good breakfast buffet. Small disadvantage is the location is a little difficult to access/find at night, otherwise it's a great place to stay on a short vacation to Latvia. The staff were very helpful and their English was excellent. Rooms were quiet and spacious. I liked the new and modern decorations and the bathroom was roomy. It has no other amenities but Internet was available in lobby. The hotel rates were reasonably priced. We would definitely return there.
