The hotel is not bad. There is wifi, there is breakfast. Its main advantage is its location - very near the stations and the Old Town. Two great bars next door: Aussie and Depo! Some points were quite disappointing though: the room was tiny, the walls are so thin that we literally heard a cell phone vibrating in the neighbouring...

I chose this hotel because it was accross the street from the bus station. And the room rate was incrediblt low (including breakfast). The rooms were spotless, the bathroom modern, and the beds very comfortable. My first room faced the street so it was a little noisy at night. I left Riga and returned to a larger room which faced...

Great location, close to old town, close to the bus station and shopping center. Breakfast was really good and free Wi-Fi too. Perfect location for anything you want to do in Old Riga. I would stay here again and would definitely recommend.

When we finally for there we were really surprized that the hotel is located on the street which lies exactly between the...

I was for the fourth time in beautiful Riga, but for the first time in Forums hotel. It has very good location by the Old town and is - with its 3 stars - quite good - with clean room and bathroom. I got the "Economy room", which had mini-bar, but no tea/coffee facilities and safe. I could use the...

I stayed at the top floor, level 6. The lift only goes to level 5 and you have to use the stairs. Noise isolation isn't great, I could hear the noise from the pub next door. Great location, in old town, close to the bus station and supermarket. I had an issue with a weird intermittent buzzing sound in my...

Again, a fabulously located hotel! We only had a night to explore this beautiful capital city so location was KEY for us. The parking was a bit confusing but once we found it, it was very close and not too expensive. The hotel staff was a bit annoyed at us for losing our key in the time we checked in...

If you only care about your budget and easy access to the old town, this hotel would be an option for you. This is at a good location; close to the coach station and a shopping mall, and easy to find a way to get to the centre of the old town. However, if you require a bit more...let me...

Center based, near stations! Short walk to airport bus stop. Nice Hotel with fair facilities. Breakfast was a nice surprise with salads and tasty scrambled eggs. Room was ok but situated at street side above noisy bar & terrace! Room was hot and no air conditioning. We asked ang got fans to help out for some sleep. Beds were old...
