“You have to eat here!!!!”
Reviewed December 28, 2009

The rooms are nothing special but the food, wonderful really high class gourmet kitchen for less money (3 courses) then the Italian place (1 course) round the corner!!! Unfortunately the restaurant is not cozy at all.

This was my third time to Riga and i thought the food at this hotel was superb. My friend said it was the best duck shes ever had!

So tip is not necessarily to stay at the hotel but what ever you do you have to try the kitchen!

We went to Koloona spa for wonderful treatments every day instead of the hotels spa that was closed x-mas time.

A classical Scandinavian hotel. Beautiful room, but each extra is calculated and the bathroom is not exactly at a **** standard (just a shower, without a curtain, leading to water everywhere). No room service. Good (rapid) internet connection.

Myself and partner enjoyed a short break at the Nordic Bellevue last week. We found the hotel very easy to locate 75p on the bus from the airport! Our room was a small double but was very clean with everything working perfectly. The rooms are very modern in design and easy to relax in. The location of the hotel is very good with a department store across the road along with the main train station and shopping complex. The old town is a 2 minute walk away and the hotel is very handy for all the sights. Breakfast was very tasty catering for fish lovers i'd recommend the smoked salmon or your usual eggs and bacon, cereal, croissants. Overall for a first time stay in Riga i would certainly recommend.

Weekend stay with a friend in this hotel was perfect. The location is marvellous for shopping (Stockman department store, Central Market, Origo shopping centre and the Old Town - everything can be reached in minutes).

Our room was spacious and it had a marvellous whirlpool tub. The staff was very friendly, in the evening we fetched a pot of hot water and tea to enjoy it in our room.

Some reviewers have complained about the breakfast. We had no problem, there was plenty of everything and the fresh fruit salad was fantastic.

We had to treatments in the Babor spa. The staff was very friendly and we enjoyed the light colors and tranquil setting.

Our room was very quiet, facing the inner court. I don't know it the heavy traffic disturbs the rooms facing the street. We had requested for a quiet room and were very happy with our choice.

I can't find any fault in this hotel. This is a four star hotel at its best.

Stayed in this hotel for two nights on a city trip to Riga. The hotel is located right between the old town and the new town, 5 mins walk to both, and right opposite the railway station. The building is well maintained and modern from both the outside and the inside.

The rooms on the 5th (and top) floor have a tilted ceiling, which may not seem very attractice at first sight because it seems to reduce the volume and the available surface of the room, but which we soon came to appreciate as adding a lot of atmosphere compared to the normal cubic rooms on the lower floors. The lighting was also nicely adjusted to the lay-out of the room.

Bathrooms are modern, with shower pressure that is just about accetable. As other reviewers have remarked, the hotel has a problem with the airconditioning, which may cause problems especially in the lower floor rooms which are closer to the busy streets. On the 5th floor you will hardly hear the traffic even with the windows open.

The one and only real fault of this hotel was the breakfast buffet, which staff stop to restock long before the breakfast hour is over. This does not only concern "luxury" items like croissants but also basic stuff like orange juice, cereals, and cheese. On the second morning even the butter had finished, and staff refused to refill it! Maybe this is intended as a gentle reminder of Soviet times?

  • Liked — Cozy attic rooms with tilted ceilings
  • Disliked — Badly restocked breakfast buffet
