The 5* Grand Palace Hotel is located in the heart of the old town and ideally situated when visiting all the key attractions around Riga. Staff are very professional, friendly and attentive. The rooms are tastefully furnished, well equipped and very comfortable. Breakfast was enjoyable and nothing was too much trouble. Dinner is expensive especially when adding wine, however it... More

The Grand Palace is a marvelous hotel with an outstanding staff. The concierge was very friendly and ready to help any time. My room was spotlessly clean and very cosy.The breakfast was delicious with glorious selection of fish. I have enjoyed the bar as well.

The hotel is located in the centre of old city. Service is perfect. They have very friendly and helpful employees. They have cool bicycles for rent and the scent of flowers, picturesque design details are all around the hotel making perfect atmosphere.

The basic issue is that the front desk promised me that I would not have to pay for a wine that was not good, and then reneged on that promise. I didn't argue, because it wasn't a big deal (€135). I was going to not bother tagging the hotel with a bad review, just the restaurant. But, they clearly do... More

This hotel is located in a nice area, where you can reach the city center by foot. The room I got was spacy and clean. Breakfast - you could choose between fruit, bread, eggs etc. There is a cosy bar at the hotel. Would enjoy to re-visit.

Wish the hotel could upgrade the public areas and the restaurant. Such nice rooms but the ambiance in the public areas are terrible and it is evident with the lack of restaurant guests that something needs to be done in order to compete with the great alternatives in Riga
