Reviewed February 1, 2013

Riga is a very beautiful city, an has a magnificent and well-preserved old town. So nothing better than being in the middle of this location. The hotel Justus is in the best possible location in a very quiet street and close to everything you want to do in this city. I have already been in more than two hundred hotels around the world in my life and never found a so quiet place to sleep . The decor of the entire hotel is very suggestive, a mix of modern and medieval touches, an authentic charm. It is worthwhile to stay in this hotel and certainly, if I go back to Riga, I will not think twice where I'll stay.

The location is superb - right in the heart of the Old Town next to the main square, but on a quiet little street. All staff was very friendly and helpful. Room was cozy with exposed brick walls and nice furnishings. Breakfast buffet was good. And the price for the stay was most reasonable. Will definitely go back. Oh, the wifi was not great.

We stayed at Hotel Justus for a couple of nights in January. The hotel is charming; very funky decor with all the mod cons. It's centrally located to Riga Old Town, and surrounded by good restaurants (highly recommend Restorāns 1221 despite the apparently high prices). Beds were firm, rooms were clean, and reasonably spacious. We had a standard room; he suites must be huge.

Would highly recommend you consider this hotel.

We stayed at Justus for 1 night in January 2013

Situated right in the middle of Riga's Old Town, Justus is a perfect little boutique hotel for exploring Latvia's capital. The hotel has so much character, it's really unique and interesting as well as perfectly located.

If I had to mention an area of improvement, I would say that the walls are a bit thin so you can hear people snoring/laughing and other things late at night. A minor issue though - all in all I couldn't recommend this place more if you're spending a weekend in Riga.

I stayed here with my girlfriend in April 2012 for 4 nights. We were first timers in Latvia though were thoroughly impressed. At such a low price I never expected the hotel to have such character and charm .. loved the raw materials used and exposed brickwork. The location is excellent too!

The staff were friendly but not in your face and leave you to it. The rooms were romantic and beds sumptuous and soft. The breakfast was varied and inspired locally. I am vegetarian so stuck to the eggs mainly. When it poured with rain one day the hotel has complimentary umbrellas which I thought was cute. WiFi was good and the downstairs lobby area was chilled and relaxed for business or personal space.
Remember to visit " I love you bar " and skyline bar in the Radisson hotel !! Grab a map from the hotel reception & staff will talk you through how to navigate around. You can get anywhere from the street " kungu iela" as it's central to most of the streets.

Would revisit and definitely stay here again

Stayed for 3 nights in the middle of December. It was cold, but really Christmassy so well worth the trip. All the staff at Justus were really friendly and helpful, to the point of offering late checkout without even being asked. Additionally, the staff were always smiling. Rooms were very clean and delicately furnished with no ikea!
The location is right in the old town,so perfect for exploring, plus its about 2 minutes walk from the airport bus (number 22 costs 0.50 lats a ticket and takes about 20 minutes).
Breakfast cannot be faulted, different every day and a wide range. We had dinner in the restaurant one night. It was ok, but not as good as expected- maybe it was due to it being in the off season?!? For good Latvian food, look for the Lidos- it's not very imaginative but the food was genuinely amazing.
All things considered, I can't fault Hotel Justus therefore a well deserved 5*.

Splendent location in the old town. The breadfast was good, but not excellent and the staff was very helpful. The room was clean, cosy and wifi works well. If you are looking for something different and historically, Justus would be the right choice... and YES, I would go there again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Four-star boutique Hotel Justus is located in the very of the old town of Riga, literally a few steps away from the famous Dome cathedral, within the architectural area protected by UNESCO as a part of world heritage. The immaculate renovation of the historical building was completed by April 2009, and so today the authentic facade conceals 45 cosy rooms uniquely designed to embrace the charm of genuine brickwork combined with fascinating art objects, antique as well as contemporary. Personalised service matched with attractive pricing policy makes Hotel Justus of great interest for a wide range of guests. The hotel’s site possesses high historical value, since it was part of the plot of land selected by Bishop Albert as the location for his Baltic residence back in 1210. However, the medieval wooden housing was destroyed by the fire in the 17th century, so the architectural ensemble comprising Jauniela Street today dates back to the 18th century. The facade of the hotel itself underwent the last major alteration in 1874. The building hosted a tavern in the early 19th century that was later replaced by typography and lithography services, in the 20th century it was occupied by artisan workshops, pharmaceutical laboratories, and then a cinema gallery and offices. Charms of architecture and historical atmosphere made this place a favourite shooting spot of Soviet movie-makers. Now the hotel belongs to a small group of friends that has spotted an empty run-down building and revived it with artistic energy.Idea of making restaurant Aleks comes from the simple desire to enjoy Riga of the beginning of the previous century. Interior is made from the household items of those times, which gives the restaurant unique look. ... more   less
