Hotel Valdemars has an interesting history. It was owned by a family, the property confiscated under communism and then restituted in the 1990s. The hotel itself is an old building and some of the original features are retained such as the staircase. The bedrooms are clean however quite basic. The grey colour scheme throughout does little to create an atmosphere... More

Dear Noll, Thank you for posting a review of your stay at Clarion Collection Hotel Valdemars on Tripadvisor. The hotel does have a very unique history and I think also a very special atmosphere being located in a old Art Nouveau building. In the renovation we tried to keep as much as possible of the original part of the building.... More

Went for a one-night (two day) business trip to Riga. Clarion Collection Hotel Valdemars was the choice of hotel for us. Very affordable, clean and quiet. The hotel served adequate breakfast (no frills). I rate it excellent for that price range. The only minus is the location during traffic peak hours, but that is avoidable if the old city is... More

very good hotel with breakfast and dinner included. Pretty good gym and sauna available free of charge. Cosy and comfortable public area in reception to rest, watch TV and have a drink. Rooms were not so good, no nice view through windows, just busy street, don't feel like at home due to room setup, not sure what, but other hotels... More

I have stayed here a few times, and it is consistently good. The hotel is a modernised 20th century building, with a cosy feel and welcoming staff. It's my first choice for staying in Riga (there are other good options too and the range of choice is growing). Rooms - spacious and clean, with high ceilings. A bit bare but... More

Our room was simple, but cosy. We had everything we had wanted: comfortable bed, nice meals, supportive staff, wifi. As we were busy during the day we found that relaxing sleep in the nice bed was: mission accomplished! The quality of breakfast for me is delicious coffee(and there it was) and porridge. I do not care how may sorts of... More
