The location for exploring old Riga is spot on and for business purposes a taxi ride away. The staff at reception were friendly, and helpful when a taxi was required. The evening meal was excellent, fresh soup, followed by the tuna being cooked perfectly. My room in the 4th floor was quiet, spacious and clean. For about €74.00 for bed...

Booked three nights at The Old Riga Palace for a short city break in Riga. Having read other reviews about Riga we decided to catch the number 22 bus from the airport. Easy to do as it stops right outside the terminal. Cost to the city centre is €1.20 per person each way. A five minute walk via an underpass...

Hotel is located at the quiet street at river side of old town, close to the centrum, bus and railroad station. Rooms are tiny, but nicely decorated and cozy. Every room has minibar, deposit box, iron and ironing board. Free WiFi is available in all facilities. Beds are very comfortable. Breakfast was OK, but usually in 4* hotels there is...

I have just spent a week in Riga with my family party of 8 and we stayed at this hotel in the old town. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful and could not do enough for us. The breakfast was typical continental with some hot food and again was of very good quality. The rooms were quite small...

Stayed here for a week in January. Couldn't really fault anything other than the rooms been a bit small, but they had everything you needed and were well maintained.

Arriving at the hotel, the first impression always made is by the reception staff, and our impression was that the ladies customer service was not very welcoming, quite tight and formal, and it did not feel like we were very welcome. We had booked a basic double room, the view was OK, the room was clean and it had all...

I came for three nights in the middle of the winter to old Riga. the write up about this hotel was nice and its average satisfaction was 8.6. I think it is slightly overrated. The room (single) can sleep two thin people but it leaves very little room to maneuver. The shower is so small that I was hoping not...

The pretty good hotel reviews I had read earlier, didn't turn out to be true during our 3-night stay in this hotel. I cannot tell the price of the room, because we booked it via the Finnish travel agency - however, the deal was not cheap at all. Should have done it at least via bookings to get the room...

Situated in the scruffy outskirts of the Old Town this hotel failed in several key points. My prepayment had not been registered, the key card functioned badly, the wifi inside the room was very poor. Used glasses in the room where not changed, only turned upside down with last nights contents stuck inside. The breakfast had free champagne but the...
