Great place. A great reasonably priced charming newly redone hotel. Helpful staff, they will take care of you . This hotel is a hidden gem , just like Riga itself. Easy to get to from the airport. Get on the bus 22 , just on the other side of the small airport parking lot. Pay the driver, about 2 Euros,... More

The hotel located on a side street in Old town Riga. The bedroom and bathroom are modern with nice bedding and good shower. Wifi was included in the room rate and fast. Breakfast was extra, costed about 10 USD. The food spread was adequate. I would like it better if there were less noises and more ventilation. No A/C and... More

We enjoyed our stay here. Charming room, the only down side being the climb up the stairs. Breakfast was good and the staff very pleasant. When we arrived at 2am due to a delayed flight from Luton there was a friendly person on reception! All in all - great.

This hotel is in an perfect site for exploring the Old Town. As with many hotels in this area, it has no elevator or porter. Although it's only 3 stories, with a "dicky" knee, it's a bit of a struggle with your luggage. Our room was on the third story! Our room was large and clean. Unfortunately our mini refridgerator...

We stayed for a long weekend and found the receptionists very welcoming and pleasant. The hotel is down a cobbled pedestrian alleyway (not unlike the rest of the old town) and I was worried it may be unsafe at night. On the contrary, we (2 women) felt completely safe and it was very well lit. The main attractions are no... More

We were 4 family members on a girls trip to Riga. This hotel has the perfect location, near lots of shops and restaurants. Its a quiet hotel not a party hotel 😊 and perfect for us since as youngest was 14 to grandmother of 59 years. Nice friendly staff and ok breakfast.

Simple and small but situated just in the centre, in Old city. Convenient for everything: there are lots of shops, museums, clubs & bars in the neighbourhood just in 2-5min walk. The hotel is situated in a narrow street just outside the main streets so it is really quite at night. Rooms are quite small and simply decorated but have... More

Lovely hotel nestled down a small, quiet cobbled lane in the heart of the old town. My boyfriend and I stayed for 3 nights and found everything we needed to be within walking distance. We had the an attic corner room which was spacious, as was the bathroom. The hotel is very clean and traditional which is just what we... More

I guess the best thing I can say about the Vecriga, is that it is a very good average hotel. Its very quaint outside. Its not even on a road, more like a cobblestoned 10' wide pavement ( so no traffic noise ). Inside there's lots of red brick, but no open fires that would have made a big difference.... More

The hotel is located in the old city of Riga, just perfect for sight seeing. However: wifi is slow and instable, I could hardly do mails ! And when I came to my room, food leftovers were still in the room. I reported this to reception, the food was removed, but no excuse offered. The room is basic, certainly not... More
