“Fantastic welcoming hotel with excellent staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 December 2012

Stayed in this hotel in cold December. Hotel was excellent with friendly helpful staff - nothing was too much trouble. Went to visit Christmas market which was a little disappointing but hotel fantastic in great location for all Riga has to offer . If you book a superior room make sure you make use of the sauna.

It is a great hotel with fantastic style and nice staff. The breakfast was plentiful and interesting; at times it felt like playing Russian roulette with what you were about to eat! But there is enough familiar stuff to satisfy less adventurous palettes too.

The room was nice and warm and clean, not as big as some of the pictures I'd seen but decent size. We asked for extra pillows and bedding and the staff brought it straight away. They also let me take a breakfast plate to our room as my husband was ill. The location is fantastic but...

... the location means that there is quite a lot of noise at night, especially at weekends but I think a lot of old town Riga is like this. Perhaps the hotel should supply ear plugs!

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor and facing away from the street if you, like me, cannot sleep with noise

Romantic hotel with a great location in the old town of Riga. It was surrounded by many nice restaurants and bars. The rooms were clean and quiet and the breakfast was good and versatile. We can warmly recommend this hotel.

Stylish, clean, modern and cozy! Perfectly situated in the very centre of Riga, so you have everything in a walking distance. The restaurant is marvelous, the service is brilliant, however it feels damn cold in the winter (outside only! the hotel is very warm :-)

Stayed here for 4 nights and the hotel is wonderful and ideally situated it the old town of Riga, just a sones throw away from everything. The staff are so friendly and very helpful with any query you have, they do go out of their way for you. The hotel is gorgeous with lots of character, our room was lovely and large and very comfortable and clean, the shower was huge and lots of hot water. We didnt have much of a view but then everything you need to see is just outside! The breakfast is very good too and unusual, many things I haven't seen before at breakfast! The on site restaurant we ate in on our first day was very nice too, we had the business lunch and it was very good value. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

Hotel Justus was great choice for visit in Riga. Great friendly and helpful staff, really clean rooms, even under the bed.
We were lucky and didn't hear any noise during the night as others reviewers wrote. And the breakfast was really tasteful. Each day bit different. And if you wish, you can ask waiter and they will make you omelet as you wish (with bacon is better than with cheese ;)
As we booked superior room we had private launch and sauna included in the price of the room (just don't forget to take towel from room).

Room Tip: Great self service restaurant Alus seta on Tirgonu iela for sweet go just next door - love their cak...

We are very pleased to have stayed at Hotel Justus! The hotel staff are really friendly and helpful. The location is superb. The hotel room was tidy and cosy. The only negative critic is that the parking space for the car was a bit hard to reach. Thank you for a pleasant stay!

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
