On a recent trip to Riga, Latvia we stayed for two nights in the Reval Ridzene Hotel.
We arrived in Riga by bus from Vilnius, Lithuania and were pleased to find the Ridzene was a fairly short and easy walk from the bus station.
The staff on the reception desk were polite and efficient and spoke fairly good English.
Our room looked out over a park and the domes of the Russian orthodox cathedral.
The room was comfortable and clean. It did not provide tea/coffee making facilities in the room. However, it did have an in room safety deposit box facility.
Breakfast is served in the hotel's glass pyramid restaurant. There were ample supplies of hot and cold food plus self service tea/ coffee machines. We were happy both with the quantity and quality of food provided.
I was especially delighted with the hotel's excellent location. it is in the greenbelt which separates Riga's old and new towns which means it was quiet in peaceful at night time. It was also only a short walk away from Riga's very impressive Art Noveau district and an equally short walk away from Riga's old town.
The hotel also serves food in its pyramid restaurant in the evening but as there are many other nearby restaurants we did not try the hotel's evening meals.
Another available facility, which again we did not actually try (due to having too many other things to do), is its sauna.
Check out from the hotel was quick and hassle-free.
We received a thank you for your stay e-mail shortly after departure which I always think is a rather nice touch. I would happily stay in this hotel again.
