Reviewed November 5, 2010

Stopped for 3 nights at the end of october with husband and two friends. Hotel is right next to the American Embassy with 5 min stroll through a lovely park into the old town. Cleanliness of hotel was excellent ! Plenty of food to choose from at breakfast, however, the only down side was the hot food was luke warm if not cold some mornings. Riga is a beautiful city but don't go expecting a cheap break as it was more expensive than we had anticipated. A Main meal and 2 drinks each for 4 people came to just under £100..that was in a 'traditional latvian food' restaurant so just beware. Found a lovely bar next to the swedish gates...Garaza...this served the best Latvian beer on draft and did lovely reasonably priced food!!! All in all we had a great break in a lovely city !

This was one of the best hotels we stayed in in the course of a two-week tour around the Baltic countries. We picked it - and all of our hotels - because of the reviews on tripadvisor and we couldn't have chosen better. It was very good value - 69€ per night for a hotel really close to the centre - just a stroll through the park, literally - with a fantastic breakfast buffet. It's about a twenty-minute walk from the bus station - we walked so I don't know how much a taxi would cost. We ate in the bar one night and the food and service were very good.The building itself definitely isn't the prettiest in Riga but we were really pleased with our choice and would definitely stay here again. There's a fitness centre which we didn't use, and free internet access in the business centre. Don't hesitate.

Reval Ridzene is an excellent hotel with excellent staff and a pleasant restaurant.
I arrived late and got a smaller room but the staff agreed to change rooms te following day and I got a super comfortable place.
Nothing bad to say, even if I try.
A big thank you to the hotel staff who sorted out all kinds of problems due to the closure of airports (volcano ash crisis).
Will come again.

We booked a double room at the Ridzene in the centre of Riga, and we were pleasantly surprised by the quality and standard of the hotel for such a budget price. We paid around £160 for three nights' stay, which was excellent value for money.

Because we had booked a night flight, we'd contacted the hotel staff to see if it was possible for us to check in very early, as we were due to arrive at 6.30am. We were prepared to pay for this service, but we didn't have to, as the hotel staff were very accommodating, and said that this would be no problem. I'm not sure this would always be the case, but we visited at the beginning of April which seemed to be just before the start of the 'season', so the hotel was relatively empty.

We received a warm welcome after walking up the red carpeted steps to the hotel foyer (very amusing even though this probably wasn't the intention!), and the check-in process was quick and painless, which was a godsend after a pretty much sleepless night.

Our room was functional - nothing spectacular, but very clean and more than adequate space-wise. Our late flight/early arrival necessitated a sleep to give us the energy for exploration, and the bed was amazingly comfortable - I can honestly say (and my partner agreed) that I've never experienced such a wonderful sleep in a hotel.

The breakfasts were great - a full buffet, with cereals, toast, bacon, chipolatas, scrambled and boiled eggs, baked beans, sauteed spuds, yoghurt, fruit, lots of juices, in fact pretty much everything you could think of - and set us up perfectly for the day. The Piramida Restaurant was a pleasant setting - it was closed for dinner, but we weren't intending to eat there anyway, so this wasn't an issue.

We had a later flight home as well as our early arrival, so we asked if we could check out late - again, there wasn't a problem, and 3pm was more than reasonable. Again, I'm not so sure this would be the case if the hotel was fully booked, but for us this was another great touch. We stored our bags in a secure room and went out for the day, returning at around 7pm. We had a drink and a bar snack, used the hotel's free internet access which was available on two PCs in a room next to reception, and the hotel called us a taxi for the airport which arrived exactly on time.

Negative points? I really can't think of any - and if I did mention anything, it really would sound like nit-picking so I'm not going to bother! A great stay in a great hotel!

have just stayed in the reval hotel ridzene and it was an okay hotel, but i should not think
5 stars are justified there. Room were a bit small but okay. Wireless internet however was very bad and did not work most of the time. Breakfast was good and staff was very nice and spoke english very well. Now we are both farely fit, but a little warning for persons maybe not as fit. Bathtub was extremely high and as there were no handles getting in and out was a bit dangerous! Also there was not heating in our room, so it got a bit cold. Bathroom floor however was heated, which was very nice. Minibar was very expensive but nothing we used was replaced, which was a bit strange.
All in all our stay was fine, but not a 'five star' stay, however must add that rate was very reasonable.

What a great place !!!

Stayed for 4 days and was sad to be leaving .This is a first class hotel in a beautiful city.
The standard of the room was excellent and the food and service were second to none.
I will be going back to visit Riga again as soon as time permits and the first place I will be trying to get accomodation is the Reval Hotel Ridzene.
