Four-star boutique Hotel Justus is located in the very of the old town of Riga, literally a few steps away from the famous Dome cathedral, within the architectural area protected by UNESCO as a part of world heritage. The immaculate renovation of the historical building was completed by April 2009, and so today the authentic facade conceals 45 cosy rooms uniquely designed to embrace the charm of genuine brickwork combined with fascinating art objects, antique as well as contemporary. Personalised service matched with attractive pricing policy makes Hotel Justus of great interest for a wide range of guests. The hotel’s site possesses high historical value, since it was part of the plot of land selected by Bishop Albert as the location for his Baltic residence back in 1210. However, the medieval wooden housing was destroyed by the fire in the 17th century, so the architectural ensemble comprising Jauniela Street today dates back to the 18th century. The facade of the hotel itself underwent the last major alteration in 1874. The building hosted a tavern in the early 19th century that was later replaced by typography and lithography services, in the 20th century it was occupied by artisan workshops, pharmaceutical laboratories, and then a cinema gallery and offices. Charms of architecture and historical atmosphere made this place a favourite shooting spot of Soviet movie-makers. Now the hotel belongs to a small group of friends that has spotted an empty run-down building and revived it with artistic energy.Idea of making restaurant Aleks comes from the simple desire to enjoy Riga of the beginning of the previous century. Interior is made from the household items of those times, which gives the restaurant unique look.

Rooms are very well laid out, comfortable and clean. Even though this was a central location it was quiet. Reception staff are very friendly, welcoming and helpful. Excellent continental breakfast with good choice and plenty to have. Have no problem recommending this hotel.

I don't write many reviews--but this one deserves it. Great hotel with a lot of history! Thank you for making our experience in Riga that much richer. We were in room 509, superior. I asked for a quiet room, yet we wanted a nice view - that's what we got, and we're quite picky

Situated in the Old city, very old but super renovated hotel, very nice rooms, clean bathrooms, kind personnel. Walking distance to all main attractions (Riga's center is small anyway). Highly recommended.

We love this hotel, it has become our home away from home! Always a warm welcome, an excellent central though quiet location, cozy, stylish & clean. Had booked a Junior Suite where we stayed during our earlier trip to Riga but were kindly upgraded to an Executive Suite.
