“Truly memorable hotel!”
Reviewed 14 March 2012

Lovely hotel in center of Riga. Staying one night here for business. Free parking just in front of the hotel on the nice cobbled pavement. Which is a nice touch after having paid €15 a night for the parking at the previous hotel in Tallinn. Very convenient too, get out of the door in the morning, jump in the car and off you go. Deluxe room is seriously big, furnished with lovely Marie Antoinette style furniture, all very elegant and chick. The double bed felt very comfortable. Large bathroom with the bath and lots of nice smelly bottles, even the rose scented candle on the sink, which has unfortunately been burnt out by the previous guest, they should have replaced it for the new guest I suppose :-)
Being on business in Riga stuck at the laptop in the hotel room the evening as usual, so didn't have chance to venture out for a meal, but didn't feel any need either. The food in the hotel is excellent, the beef carpaccio with foie gras is seriously good, as well as mozzarella and tomato salad and cheese selection.
Would definitely come to stay here again.

Everything about my experience at the Grand Palace was perfect. From the airport collection to the drop-off I was in love with this place! Wonderful staff and lovely rooms and a very impressive breakfast offering. I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again, I felt like royalty here.

Grand Palace Hotel is fantastic luxury hotel. Great location. Nothing negative at all in our one week stay. Wish all city hotels were like this! Wish also warmly recommend family restaurant Alibi (near the hotel). Delicious Traditional Grill in Latvian style. The owners Dace and Raivis are fantastic couple.

More like a grand home then a hotel, the staff of this stylish hotel in the middle of Riga's old make you feel like a VIP from the moment you arrive until you leave. I have seldom experienced such helpful and professional staff.

We were upgraded without additional costs when we arrived and got a fantastic room on the upper floor.

This beautifully decorated and furnished property also has a top-class restaurant where my wife and I spent New Year's Eve with great food and entertainment.

In addition to the restaurant there is a cool bar and lounge.
