Grand Palace is a lot smaller than its name suggests. Nevertheless it is lovely. The staff are very helpful, professional and friendly. The hotel is located in Riga old town and so it's very convenient to explore the area on foot. In the basement in a sauna and steam room which can be booked at reception, and is very good...

Loved the breakfast and private (you book a time and have it to yourself for one hour) steambath and sauna area, as well as very lovely food in the restaurant. Bar has lots to offer, apart from a decent wine selection. Everything is very neat and tidy, and oldschool with bellboys opening the door for you etc. Riga downtown is...

This is a small hotel with basically all the amenities except for a real spa or fitness (both are sort of marginal). Service is fantastic, VERY friendly and quick. I really loved it. For the price very good.

I've stayed here a few times now for work, and have to say, I do agree with the other reviews as it relates to the service and the overall ambience if this place. Great breakfast and warm cozy feel which is always nice if you are away from home for business a lot. Only feedback is that the main bar...

A classy hotel, if not a little more "stuffy" compared to it's partner hotel in Tallinn. Excellent, courteous staff, well informed, and anxious to assist. A little "pricey", again compared to it's sister hotel in Tallinn, the St. Petersbourg.

In Latvia to test winter tyres. Happily the ambient temperature rose from minus 30 a few days previously to between minus 3 and plus 3. Hotel ideally situated to explore what's left of Riga's old city centre. Food not memorable, but service was good and staff very friendly. Nice atmosphere.

Finally back in one of my favourite city hotels in the world. I simply love the location, service, rooms, honey-smell of the water (shower). But the top of the top is their lobby bar: smoking still allowed (!!!) with a nice humidor selection. Sitting in this country lodge atmosphere alone is a reason to visit the Grand Palace Riga.
