Reviewed July 5, 2013

I enjoyed staying at NB hotel. I was there on sunday and it was very quiet but also the area around is quiet and nice, no big roads. The receptionist was polite and helpful guy, speaks fluent english and russian. My room was clean and comfortable. It is possible to play billiard, they have a bar and restaurant. There was a buffet opened in the morning, good variety and quality! Negative sides: no lift, so the receptionist helped me to carry my heavy bags. Not very far from airport, with taxi aeound 10-15 minutes, one way cost 10 euros.

One of the best hotels I see. The rooms are nice, clean and the park side rooms have nice view. I stayed in this hotel during an official tour first and liked it so much that on the very next month went there with my family. The hotel staffs are very friendly. Always greet you with smile and very eager to help you. We had no problem in early check in (at 7.30 in the morning) and late checkout (8pm in the night). They didn’t charge extra for it. I spent wonderful time with my family there. The foods are excellent. The breakfast was very delicious. We also had the lunch and dinner in their restaurant. The lobby area is very nice. I would recommend this hotel to everyone. I myself will definitely stay there again if I plan for Riga.

Air conditioned rooms, friendly staff, it is what it is, a nice,cheaper hotel just outside the city centre. 10 minutes on a number 5 tram to town, with the Botanical gardens just around the corner.
I paid 76 LAT for 3 nights bed and breakfast, bargain

I have been to Riga quite a few times and visit once or twice a year for shopping. Usually it's a short weekend trip and whilst I have stayed at a 4 star hotel most times I decided to save some money and try something cheaper this time.

NB Hotel is a bit further out of town than where I stay normally but not too far away. The No 5 tram takes you straight to the door of the hotel and fortunately I knew where to get off the airport bus to connect with Slokas Iela where its situated. It's easy to find from town by asking for directions.

The hotel is modern and situated in a main street with resedential housing opposite. It is a quiet neighbourhood. On arrival the recepton staff were efficient and very helpful allocating me a double room (I only paid for a single) and providing assisitance with navaigation and getting connected to the excellent free wireless Internet throughout the property.

The room was spotless. Bathroom clean and there was a TV with an English movie channel, news channel and other services. Beds were firm and comfortable and the room was large, bright and airy. The hotel has several full sized snooker tables on the ground floor for rent and they also have a nice courtyard where you can relax, enjoy a drink and smoke in the open air.

Breakfast was everything you could want with bacon, egss (scrambled, boiled), sausage, toast, bread, preserves/honey, cerials, porridge, variety of juices and tea/coffee. Evening meals are ad hoc, no menu available but something can be prepared quickly up until 11PM daily which is just as well as there are no carry out food places outwith Riga city centre.

Best bet is to get a Riga city transport ticket so you can get around. They cost about 5.70Ls (£6.60) for 3 days use of bus/trolley/trams and the local public transport is reliable and runs to time (timetables are shown on every bus/tram stop). Taxi from Riga city centre to the NB Hotel is approx 7Ls (£8.50) which is reasonable if a party of guests are staying.

I would go back to NB Hotel without hesitation. Once you know whre it is and how to get there it's easy and the standard of accomodation and customer care is hard to beat for the price you pay.

Room Tip: Rooms in the hotel are good but all are non-smoking. Annex rooms have a balcony which might be bett...

We got a red taxi from the airport they were very well organised but I believe it was cheaper getting an ordinary cab back(12Lats)a bit more than £12. It would be wise to take water if you are arriving late: bar was shut after 11pm and reception staff unable to sell anything. No lift but wide staircase. Room was fine though,shower OK, toilet flush had to be repeatedly unscrewed or didn't flush. Breakfast was fine, lovely bread and usual egg and stuff, cheese,meat,fruit and cereals. Lots of snooker tables in hotel.
Got a map of Riga from reception and the tram outside the hotel:30santimes(I think) about 30p remember and punch your ticket as the controllers often pop on to check your tickets.
Easy to find your way around Riga, lots of smart cars,designer gear, and high heels but also some old ladies selling flowers in jars and odd elderly and young person begging. Lots of beautiful buildings, monuments,galleries,museums most take a donation. Interesting to see the History of Latvia realise how lucky we are living in the West after WW11 but things looking good for Riga. Lots of good grub, try the black balsam,yoghurt lovely and peppermint tea. Worth a trip to Jourmalla on the train loads of wooden houses.
