“Cozy and quiet location hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014

Very nice and cozy hotel in quiet area.
The old building makes you feel like in castle )
Room is big enough and high ceilings are perfect to enjoy your stay.
Walk to the city center - 15-25 min.
Friendly stuff and delicios breakfast even with champagne in the morning - what a nice surprise! )

Room Tip: room facing back yard is defenetely quiet

I stayed several time in this hotel in 2013. Very good value for money. Confortable and spacious rooms, quiet. 15-20 minutes walk from the old town but public transport is nearby and a taxi cost less than 8 euros to get there. A few issues though with a young girl from reception that spoiled a bit my stay. Other members of the staff are all very helpfull and friendly. My second better option in Riga.

Wellton Gertrude hotel is well located. From the railway station you can quickly get to by public as well as on foot. The service friendly and helpful. Hotel high. Rooms clean, beds comfortable basically equipped. Similarly to the bathroom. WiFi working correctly. Unfortunately, on the minus breakfast - like a nice variety but for us it was not a good thing. To sum up - the average quality of the hotel.

Two couples visited hotel in march, worried when booked as only 3 stars and some of the reviews were not brilliant, but there was no need to have any concerns I think it is probably under rated should be a four star, spotless clean, breakfast was fine location good and friendly staff. I have travelled quite a bit over the years and stayed in everything from tents to 5 star quality hotels and can say this is a hotel I would return to if I went to riga again, would hesitate to recommend it. You get what you pay for at the end of the day and for what we paid we received a bargain.

Great value hotel about 20 minutes walk from old town or only 5 euro in a taxi

The hotel rooms were basic but nice and featured tea/coffee making facilities, mini bar, iron, hair dryer, desk, safe, aircon and modern bathroom.

The staff on reception were very friendly too and helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them.

Would recommend!

Nice clean hotel a little out of town,friendly staff and nice breakfast selection. 15 mins from the main train station on foot.
No 1 trolley bus takes you direct into oldtown,however the walk is not too bad either.

I was there with my boyfriend and we are quite happy about this hotel. Rooms are not very big but it is enough for several days.. Bed was very soft :)) You have to wait for about 15min if you want to have hot water in 5th floor.
