Riga always has to offer a special European charm, and this hotel is located in the core of the Old Riga City - best location to explore this beautiful city. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful, as in many other hotels in Riga - good service is just part of the culture here. You should not necessarily tip well in...

Great location in old town with only few minutes walk from most sights. Smallest room I have ever lived in, but nice price so perhaps together with location I can`t expect larger, Nice breakfast with champagne and vodka shots.

The location of the hotel is a big plus. Within few minutes you reach most recommended destinations. The room was a bit small and the furniture was not in my style (old) but it was fine for the weekend. For the money we paid and the location it was very good.

We stayed here for 3 nights and had a standard double room. My one gripe would be the size. It was a tad cosy with a low bed I kept stubbing my foot on. Staff were friendly and efficient - no complaints on that front. The hotel is located on the edge of the old town so there were no...

The Old Riga Palace is a smart hotel. We stayed for 2 nights in Feb 2013. Staff were friendly, and the rooms were clean and well kept. The location is convenient, but first impressions were a bit put off by the derelict building next door. I'd definitely stay again if I visit Riga.

Great hotel - we stayed for 3 nights in December 2012. The staff were very helpful, the room was clean and kept clean for the duration of our stay. We had a room on the ground floor and despite complaints from other reviewers that there was lots of noise outside we didn't have any bother. A couple of complaints with...

I like to stay in decent hotels with a decent breakfast without paying over the odds. I like to strike a balance between quality and price. I would rather have the spare cash to enjoy the city than feeling like I have to watch every penny because the hotel has cost a fortune. This hotel allowed me to more than...

I stayed here for 2 nights and loved the place. It's a fairly large hotel right in the centre of the Old Town. Check in was easy and all the staff I encountered at reception, breakfast and room service were really friendly. It was cold in Riga when I stayed with snow on the ground but my hotel room was...

I can say all nice things about this hotel. We came as a group of three friends, and spent most of the time just enjoying what the city has to offer. And it has a lot to offer (I highly recommend going to the opera here). The hotel itself is conveniently located within the city center. Ask for a map...

We stayed three nights Jan 27-30 in a 'superior room', which was first class in every regard and extremely good value vis a vis UK prices. All staff were helpful and pleasant throughout with good English. The breakfast buffet was good with a wide choice of foodstuffs. The location could not be better for walking the Old Town, visiting the...

“Some rooms overlook a construction site with work starting at about 8.00 am. ask for a quiet room if you want a later start to your day.”
