“Very welcoming.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2012

We had a lovely four night stay at Hotel Valdemars and would strongly recommend it to anyone thinking of visiting Riga.

Both the Hotel and the City surpassed our expectations in every way.

Due to an early flight we arrived over an hour before check in time, hoping to leave our bags, but we were made to feel welcome straight away and checked in with a pleasant smile.

The room (401) was a reasonable size and pleasantly decorated with nice view of the well refurbished interior of the hotel.

The bathroom was modern and spacious with a great powerful shower, although as it was adapted for disabled access such a powerful shower also made it prone to flooding the bathroom. This really needs taking a look at. ( Only real complaint )

Breakfast for me was the best part of an excellent stay. Only problem was finding enough room for everything that I liked. Bacon, Scrambled Egg, Boiled Eggs, Sausages, Beans, Porridge, toast and jams, selection of cereals with fruits, nuts and seeds to put on top, selection of breads, cold meats, cheeses, fish, salads, pastries, yoghurts, fruits and compote, oranges and grapefruits with a juicer as well as coffee and selection of teas. If the porridge had been a bit thinner (could be sliced) more bowls available and a bit of help for the overworked ( smiling ) waitress it could have been almost perfect.

Friendly staff who do not bother you when you don't want them to, but always have a smile ready. A special mention for Kristina. ( the hardest working with the biggest smile )

They really should advertise the hotel as half board, as getting free fruit, coffee, teas, waffles (in the afternoon) and a perfectly good evening meal go above and beyond expectations.

All in all a great stay and recommend Riga, Hotel Valdemars, and the Clarion Collection to anyone willing to listen.

An excellent hotel -within walking distance of the "Old City" and all that it had to offer. Breakfast was really good and the complimentary evening meal was excellent even though the choice was limited. All Staff were brilliant. We happened to leave our safe open by mistake when we went out all day - everything was in order when we returned.

Room Tip: Superior room was excellent. We had a balcony and separate lounge area.

Brilliant hotel close to everything. Friendly and service-orientated staff. Having tea, coffee and fruits all day was really nice. The excercise facilities were great. And best of all; the hotel is located very close to the city's most famous spa ESPA.

It was really nice staying at Hotel Valdemars. The location of the hotel is just perfect. We were a big group of teachers together. The rooms were warm and comfortable (we went there in February :)

Our favourite part was the lobby bar and the restaurant. Having tea, coffee and fruits all day was really nice. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Dinner was really delicious. Even though the price was for BB when compared with the other hotels we got full service.

You will love staying there. The best in Riga! :)

Room Tip: All my friends liked their rooms. So, I think any room will fullfil your expectations.

I went with collegues this spring. We were a large group, and check-in went fast and easy. Breakfast was good, and we were very pleased about the coffe- and tea-lounge, with day-and-night service.

The rooms were good, the bath-rooms were nice. We both had several fluffy towels that were changed every day, and even a flower in a vase on the desk.

Room Tip: We had a room facing the back-yard, and it was very quiet. -Maybe they were all quiet, none of my co...
