This hotel is situated in a great location within the old city and with easy access to and from the airport. The hotel provides a most comfortable base from which you can readily explore Riga.

Hotel is situated in the centre of the Old Town and is in a wonderful location for all the sights, and restaurants. Very well decorated and spotlessly clean. Staff speak good English and are very helpful and knowledgable. Our room overlooked the main street on the first floor. The room was huge (209) with very "quirky" furniture to match the style of the hotel. Bed was comfy but seats in room were a bit upright!! Big bathroom with hairdryer and toiletries. However we did have a problem with noise from a new nightclub that has moved to the area and the boom boom of the music kept us and most guests awake till the early hours. To be fair the hotel management called the police who told them to turn it down and they moved us to a back room for our final night which was peaceful but that was a Sunday night and the nightclub was closed anyway!

Breakfast was good with plenty of choice. There are no tea/coffee faciities in the room but you can go down to the the bar in Reception and order stuff to take back to the room. there is a fridge in the room for cold drinks/snacks.

We did not eat in the hotel as we wanted to explore the city and its restaurants at night in the snow - it looked absolutly beautiful.

The hotel arranged an airport pick up for us (around £13) - worth it as no hassle as they are waiting for you with a name board in the arrivals hall and you arrive in style in the city in a top of the range BMW limo! Email the hotel before you go and they sort it out.

We got a a green Baltic taxi back to the airport which was much the same price. The hotel booked this for us as well.

Riga is lovely and VERY picturesque. It is a city you can walk around and we would definately recommend the free walking tour that starts from outside St Peters church at 12.00pm every day but Sunday. Look for the man with the yellow suitcase(not the yellow umbrella tour as this is the organsied paid tour). Angeles asks for a donation at the end but he is worth every penny that you might like to give him. About 2 hours in total but and easy walk and the time goes very quick.

The hotel Justus is a lovely place, don't let the issue of the noise put you off. We would definately go back but will ask for a room at the back. In all honesty you will not miss much by being in the front as you overlook the hotel opposite

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter

The location, service, design, breakfasts – is ideal!
Even in a single room there was a huge bed, in triple – also huge beds, the rooms are spacious. At breakfast there were several kinds of ham, cheeses, a salmon, a herring, salads, omelette, sausages, bacon, fruit and e.t.c. Hotel is renovated, very clean, nice furniture, sanitary room is perfect.
If to go to Riga, only in this hotel!

The cleanliness and service in the hotel was superb! Loved the breakfast buffet also! Overall it was great and would highly recommend a stay in this hotel if in Riga! Also try to visit family restaurant Alibi which is located near the hotel. Great grilled dishes and wine. Nice atmosphere. Me and my wife were very lucky to find this place :)

We stayed here for 4 nights and found this hotel to be fantastic. Our room on the top floor was very cosy, comfortable and quite quaint with its unique touches. The staff were so friendly, helping us to plan our day trip to Sigulda by looking up the train timetables for us and even printing out a map as well as helping us to check in online for our flight. It is very centrally located near all of the interesting sights in Riga and there's no shortage of restaurants nearby. We ate at the restaurant (Aleks) one night and the food was delicious and quite reasonably priced. The buffet breakfast was also very tasty with a good selection of hot and cold food.

We stayed at Hotel Justus for three nights and had a generally positive experience.

On arrival, we were put in a room (502) with a large air-conditioning unit outside the window; this was quite noisy, and we asked to be moved, but were told the hotel was full. We had a poor night's sleep because of noise, and moved the next day to a much quieter, albeit smaller, room. Still, I'd rather have quiet than space.

The hotel has bags of character, with lots of quirky touches, and a good degree of comfort. Rooms don't have wi-fi, but the reception and bar areas do, and anyway, Riga is full of places offering free wi-fi, so it wasn't a major issue for us. Service was polite and efficient, and with its location in the heart of the old city, it's a great base for exploring Riga.

Room Tip: Although room 502 was an excellent size, we found it too noisy. We moved to 302, which was smaller...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Four-star boutique Hotel Justus is located in the very of the old town of Riga, literally a few steps away from the famous Dome cathedral, within the architectural area protected by UNESCO as a part of world heritage. The immaculate renovation of the historical building was completed by April 2009, and so today the authentic facade conceals 45 cosy rooms uniquely designed to embrace the charm of genuine brickwork combined with fascinating art objects, antique as well as contemporary. Personalised service matched with attractive pricing policy makes Hotel Justus of great interest for a wide range of guests. The hotel’s site possesses high historical value, since it was part of the plot of land selected by Bishop Albert as the location for his Baltic residence back in 1210. However, the medieval wooden housing was destroyed by the fire in the 17th century, so the architectural ensemble comprising Jauniela Street today dates back to the 18th century. The facade of the hotel itself underwent the last major alteration in 1874. The building hosted a tavern in the early 19th century that was later replaced by typography and lithography services, in the 20th century it was occupied by artisan workshops, pharmaceutical laboratories, and then a cinema gallery and offices. Charms of architecture and historical atmosphere made this place a favourite shooting spot of Soviet movie-makers. Now the hotel belongs to a small group of friends that has spotted an empty run-down building and revived it with artistic energy.Idea of making restaurant Aleks comes from the simple desire to enjoy Riga of the beginning of the previous century. Interior is made from the household items of those times, which gives the restaurant unique look. ... more   less
