In general we enjoyed our stay there! Although it's located on the other side of the river, a bit away from the old city on foot, the hotel is a modern one. Nice restaurant on top floor with a wonderful view of the river and the old city. The food was average. During our stay two wedding receptions took place on the lobby and it was fun to watch!

Good located, 20 minutes away from the city center on foot. The rooms are silent and clean, also breakfast is satisfying. Staff are helpful and nice. Has nice city view from its roof.

Not sure why this hotel has not had some very good reviews and we found it to be very good.

Stayed 3 nights with our nearly 1 year old – room was rather hot the air con blows out hot air but other than that the room was very nice and spacious – plenty of room for the cot – we asked for a kettle to boil water for our baby and it was brought straight to the room.

Breakfast was nice – plenty of choice – although the hot food could have been hotter.

Within a 15 minute walk to the town.

The staff were excellent.

Would recommend.

We have booked this hotel together with AirBaltic flight per airbaltic web-site - the price was very good. The hotel is nice, clean and comfortable.
The airport is very close, it takes only 20 (or less) minutes per AirBalric shuttle bus (it stops just in front of the hotel).
Breakfast is great.
Internet is very expensive. I supposed free wi-fi is an obligation of a good hotel:(
The city center is also not far from the hotel - it is necessary to get across the river through the bridge. It's ok, but in winter it was a little bit cold and windy:)

Good hotel for its price.

We came here to visit Riga, but also to relax, and the hotel was a good choice for both. Just 10 minutes walk from Old Riga, and with a wonderful panorama view of the city from top floors (lower down there are big trees between the hotel and the river). I can absolutely recommend a visit on the terrace on the 10th floor, which also have a very nice summer restaurant.
The room had AC which was much needed in the July heat and the beds were fine. There was only one armchair in the rather small sit area, so we had to use the beds to sit in when in the room.
The spa recreation area was small but OK, and good to use in the afternoon between city exploring and dinner.

I travel for work and dont get much say over what hotel i get to stay in...and admittedly if i had gotten to chooose i would not have choosen this one but i would have missed out on a really nice hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel room was nice enough. The restaurant at the hotel was good. It was walking distance to the old city center but best of all for me was the fact that it was located next to a small mall and grocery store that had a nice deli with great food i could take back to the hotel. also they had a nice spa with the hotel that was open late on sunday night. Having a great massage before you start your work week was really nice!

The Islande Hotel is a 20 or so minute walk to Riga’s beautiful Old Town. But aside from their very pleasant staff, there isn’t much to recommend of this 4 star hotel that may have had to beg or borrow a couple of its stars from some other hotel. The food at the buffet breakfast was plentiful, but plain. And the stains on our carpet reminded of a place I once stayed where the owners just didn’t seem to care anymore. Stay in the Old Town. With a short WWW search you’ll find a better place in a far better area…and probably pay less.

Room Tip: I expect the best rooms have dirty carpets too. Stay in the Old Town.
