We were a group of 4 people, 2 couples; We stayed in the Forums hotel in July 2016. When I was looking for the hotel in central Riga/Old Riga, I could not even imagine how central FORUMS is! When we finally for there we were really surprized that the hotel is located on the street which lies exactly between the... More

I was for the fourth time in beautiful Riga, but for the first time in Forums hotel. It has very good location by the Old town and is - with its 3 stars - quite good - with clean room and bathroom. I got the "Economy room", which had mini-bar, but no tea/coffee facilities and safe. I could use the... More

I stayed at the top floor, level 6. The lift only goes to level 5 and you have to use the stairs. Noise isolation isn't great, I could hear the noise from the pub next door. Great location, in old town, close to the bus station and supermarket. I had an issue with a weird intermittent buzzing sound in my... More

Again, a fabulously located hotel! We only had a night to explore this beautiful capital city so location was KEY for us. The parking was a bit confusing but once we found it, it was very close and not too expensive. The hotel staff was a bit annoyed at us for losing our key in the time we checked in... More

If you only care about your budget and easy access to the old town, this hotel would be an option for you. This is at a good location; close to the coach station and a shopping mall, and easy to find a way to get to the centre of the old town. However, if you require a bit more...let me... More

Location was just great! Aussi pub right next to the hotell was fine for us and we had no problems with it. Room was on the other side of the hotel, so can´t say anything about possible noise.Breakfast coffee was no good and we told the staff about it. Hope they have changed it.

Forums Hotel is in good location and has a beautiful interior. Unfortunately that´s where positive things end. There is no parking, only option for Parking is in the Rigo centre. When ohter guest is walking above, it feels like earthquake. When ohter quests are using water, the plumming greats very loud noise. For that morning when we wanted to stay,... More
