“Hotel was fine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2014 via mobile

Stayed here for 3 nights with my boyfriend. Rooms were nice and big. Layout if the hotel was a bit strange, had to go up the lift and then down some satires again to get to out room. The location was okay, you could walk to the central station and old town. There was also a bus stop outside but never used it.

Stayed June 2014

Just stayed 4 nights with my daughter and we had a great stay. The room was perfectly clean, the WIFI worked in the whole hotel for both of us, we didnt have to enter any numbers but could stay online anywhere in the hotel. Breakfast was rich, three kind of eggs, bacon, sausages and then joghurts fruits etc. The room to the back was very quiet. Also the distance to downtown was ca 20 min walk along a busy interesting road. Next to the hotel is a good and relatively cheap restaurant LIDO which we visited every night when we got hungry.
Only the selection of TV channels is not good, as there was only 1 German channel and 1 English channel. But since we had wifi we didnt stress out over the TV.
The service was great, they also called their own taxi to bring us to the airport, very competent.
No trouble at all, which was great, thank you.

Room Tip: The room to the back was really quiet

This hotel is nice. The staff is friendly, the rooms and the bathrooms are very clean. The Wi-Fi doesn't work properly sometimes, but most of the time it works. The breakfast is tasty too, you can choose from pretty a lot of food. The dining room is big enough, you can sit by the windows and watch at the street. The rooms are pretty big, are cleaned everyday when you go out. That's it. A nice hotel.

It is a bit away from the Old Town and City Center but I mostly walked around 20 min to get there.
The Hotel is fresh and bright, very nice equipped rooms with wooden furnitures. The WiFi didn´t work properly in parts of the 3rd floor. but after a complain they gave me a bigger room in the 1st floor were the internet connection was quite strong. The reception staff was always friendly and efficient, but the breakfast people could smile a bit more.
Breakfast room was too small there was a hustle and bustle...
I felt really good in this hotel, nearby there was the LIDO self service restaurant and some other eateries and cafes....

Room Tip: For a relaiable internet the 1st floor is best, but there the rooms a bit dark. Upper floors have mo...

This hotel is a good one. Friendly staff, Clean room and bathroom. Quiet surrounding and not very far from the city centre.

Breakfast is quite okay but not excellent. The breakfast room is way to small and crowded. The wi-fi connection in our room was unacceptable slow and flaky and useless for things like VoIP or streaming media. Our room also had a cabled connection but this suffered the same problems.

Overall this is a good hotel and my rating wood be higher than average if the WI-FI connections was good enough for serious use.

We stayed over a week at this hotel.

Just returned from 4 days in riga staying at the wellton Gertrude hotel We enjoyed our stay it was clean with comfortable beds and helpful staff .
The location was good about 25 minutes from the old town but the route is very easy and feels safe to walk at night .
Breakfast the food was plentiful and fresh.
Check out was at 12 and Anna stored our cases as we had a late flight
Riga was lovely. friendly helpful people.
There is one thing that has nothing to do with the hotel but I need to warn you beware that if you fly with Ryanair you need to pay 7€ at the airport for security fee for your luggage even if it's hand luggage so get the the airport earlier than you need or you may miss your flight other airlines are up front and honest and include it in your fare .

We stayed in this hotel for one night. Hotel was booked by the name of Ramada, but it is Welton, so be careful. Rooms are good. have everything you need for comfortable stay. Location is poor. More then kilometer away from central station and no bus connection to the hotel. Staff is friendly.

Room Tip: higher floor rooms are quite.
