“Great cozy small hotel in the old town”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

We had the suite on the first floor and the room was big and had a great atmosphere. There was a full size fridge-freezer in the room and a lot of closets.
The bathroom could look nicer, but the jacuzzi was spacious and we had our own sauna.

We were travelling with our 5 months old baby and were delighted to have a baby got for her. We also got a baby sizw duvet for her and the cot was real wooden one, although it seemed to be quite old.

The location was perfect. The hotel was on a quiet street, very close to the mall in the old town, and the center of the old town. The public transportation was close, as well as the cinema, stockmann, etc.

Room Tip: The suite is worth of the money

Arrived to a warm and organised reception, room was cosy, quiet and clean with a large and comfy bed,. Shower was over a corner bath and was good with nice hot water ,the hotel was in a fantastic location a couple of mins from the bus stops and bus/railway stations, and a short stroll to the amenities of the fantastic old town.
the breakfast was ok,don't expect a full English as you shouldn't when abroad but there is a good selection of food ,although a variation some days would be nice.
dined in one evening and the food was fine if a little expensive along with the drinks so once was enough, would recommend for a comfy well situated stay and would return sometime.

Room Tip: make sure you book a room with a window as not all rooms have them.

We stayed once again with a large group, and it was a good experience. You cannot beat the location in the Old Town across from the bus station. Everything in close proximity, including a shopping Galleria with supermarket a 3 minute walk away. Some rooms larger than others, but all are comfortable. Breakfast is excellent, with lots of choice regarding hot menu items. Staff are very helpful. You cannot go wrong staying here!

We have just returned from 3 days at the Monte Kristo. Lovely quiet hotel on a side street in the old town. This couldn't be better situated. The rooms, although smalll, were well equipped and cosy. A couple of bars next door were the obvious choice for that well deserved nightcap.

A slight groan - The breakfast choice could be better, but loved the place ...and loved Riga

Great central location, cosy room (we liked that it looked dated!!) and a big, modern ensuite bathroom. Breakfast was ok and staff fine. Cannot believe some stuck-up reviews on here about it not having a gym/spa...check the details before you book and if you don't like it, put your hand in your pocket and stay elsewhere! We liked this hotel and would recommend it.

I spend here just one night. My room was in the second floor and it was so tiny! Although it was nicely equipped - with TV, audio system, tes/coffe, mini bar. I also had a tub, as other rooms only have showers.
As the room was small, the closet was very narrow, so it might be uncomfortable for the longer stay.
By the way, the room has some kind of double windows, so it was really quiet.

I stayed at hotel Monte Kristo for 2 nights, the hotel is well located, 2mins walking from busstation,old town and a shopping Mall. Cheapest rooms are very Basic and essential but well manteined and clean. Even if there are few pubs down in the Street it is very quiet during the night with closed Windows. Breakfast place is small and food is average. Maybe not a 4* but a good and cheap 3 *.
