Returned to the Tia for the second time
Feel it is ideal for anyone visiting Riga who is looking for a
somewhere to sleep not too far from the centre
Breakfast is ok
Use the tram and the trains so cheap

I will be returning in Sept

Stayed for 2 nights early july. Its a little too far from centre. Paid £60 a night as booked early. Bathrooms are clean, new but cramped. The actual rooms are old and seen better days. The people who stayed opposite our room were heavy smokers and it drifted into our room, which wasn't great. Breakfast was basic and not much choice. Only stay here if not really fussed about being near the centre and spending minimum time in hotel. We also stayed at the Albert Hotel & Domina Inn Hotel for cheaper and they were top notch impressive modern hotels. We paid about £56 a night as left it late to book online. Very handy for football ground which is around the corner.

Just back from a 2 day stay at the Hotel Tia, Riga. Was pleasantly surprised at the standard of the hotel for the price. I paid 82 Euro in total for the 2 night stay. I booked through E-bookers and this is a little lower than the advertised rates on the hotel's website. It was a 5 to 10 minute walk to the old town so the location is ideal. The lobby area was large, clean and newly decorated. My room was small but not as small as i would have imagined for the price I paid. The bed was a little larger than the average single bed which was good. There was plenty of wardrobe and desk space and a 24" screen as opposed to the 14" you find in a lot of budget hotels in Europe. The staff were friendly even though the locals in general are a bit stand offish.

One thing I would warn other tourists about is, be careful booking a taxi back to the airport with the hotel. I took an airport (small red cars) taxi to the hotel for 8.0 lats. The hotel desk booked me a taxi back to the airport which cost 21.00 lats. I realise i arrived late at night when traffic was light and went back to the airport at rush hour and traffic was heavy but I dont think this accounted for the return fare which was almost 3 times higher. The taxi driver going back stopped the taxi just outside the airport and started explaining why the fare was so high before i even questioned it. She was speaking mostly latvian mixed with a little broken english and from what I could understand her company has an agreement with the hotel to provide taxi service and as they run Mercedes the fare is higher, she did also blame the traffic but to me the meter seemed to be going way to fast on the open road after we left the traffic behind. I think I was ripped of but had no option but to pay. You should get an estimate before getting into the taxi.

Overall i had a good experience at the TIA and would recommend it to people wanting to get a decent room at a good price in Riga.

I (33 years old from Germany) stayed with my wife on x-mas and new years eve there. The hotel is clean and modern. The room cleaning service was perfect. Nobody knocked on the door, they just waited and make up the room after we went to the town however late it was. Once they ask us via telephone if we still need the cleaning service because it was already 2pm. We answered "no, today not". But when we returned in the night our beds were made :-).
A day before new years eve they put us a 0.7l bottle sparkling wine in the room to celebrate the new year.
The breakfast was good with everything that u eat at home.
Delicius latvian dark bread, some toast, scrambled and normal Eggs, Sausage, different Cornflakes, Cheese, Marmelade, pan cakes, oatmeal gruel, some different Salads, Juice, Tea, Coffee. Everything clean and with a good and fast girl that took care for it all the time.
It was a quiet and vey nice place. I would stay there again!

P.S. A good impression: when we arrived in the night one guest tried to take a "girl" to his room but the reception girl told him that it is prohibited to take such "girls" to the room.
There is also a free Internet and a security guy all the time in the lobby.

Recent stay at Hotel Tia early October. Good for cost conscious traveller...just over £100 for 3 nights B and B for two. On main route just out from the Old Town so easy to walk to, about 15 mins., though trolley buses go past regularly. we had rm 429 which had a view into rear courtyards of adjacent properties, not very inspiring but quiet. Room is en-suite, with a small hallway and separate inner door. Twin beds, fridge, in-room safe (key from reception), and wall mounted TV with remote. Mainly Russian channels but there is CNN. Room was clean and in good condition.
Breakfast is in the bar/restaurant and is typical continental. It's a bit bland but provides tea/coffee/juices, with usual meat/cheese and bread. The hot selection is basic: sausage(hot dog), scrambled egg in cake form, and pancakes.
The building is accessed by a set of steps so is not disability friendly, and the hotel reception shares the lobby with a private business which also has a reception desk, and an armed guard!
All in all a reasonable base for a short stay in Riga at a good price.

Easy reach of airport & taxi cost under 8 Lats to hotel (£8), but return journey cost 20 Lats which we felt excessive.

Staff helpful, rooms were basic but comfortable, only downside was the very thin walls. Breakfast was basic & could have offered a lot more variety.

It took 15 mins to walk into town & with traffic at a standstill most of the day, this was the easiest and sometimes the quickest way to get there.

Hotel has a large flight of stairs to get your suitcases into the hotel which is a little daunting as taxi drivers offer no help. Not too good for elderly or infirm people. It is quiet at night.

This hotel is very good value for money. The rooms are small to medium, but spotlessly clean and recently updated. The continental breakfast is of a good standard and the staff are both friendly and efficient.
Location is reasonable, about 15 minute walk to the old city.
I would certainly recomend this hotel to budget conscious travellers who reuire clean comfortable accommodation,
