We liked this small hotel a lot. It has a nice location in the old city. Hotel is clean and cosy. Our room was big (standard double) and had a wide bed with comfortable bed clothes. Breakfast was ok although some things there were little weird and they didn't have any cooling system for the food. They made omelettes and special coffees if you asked for it. Service was ok, nothing special to mention. Would recommend!

Just had three days in Riga with a girl friend and stayed in the Hotel Justus, what a wonderful find ideally situated for all the tourist sights. The staff were very friendly and helpful, wifi ok but I don't book a hotel just for the wifi. Very comfortable but if you are on the second floor to the front of the building can be a bit noisy but otherwise great. You must try the Restaurant Aleks, food is wonderful and service good. The breakfast was a treat for the eyes, lots of meats, fish and fruit along with eggs, sausage and bacon. Our room was very clean and plenty of room in the bathroom and lots of hot water.
Riga is very pretty and architecture interesting, also the people were very friendly I would recommend a visit.

Just a five minute walk from the nr 22 bus from the aiport and there it is. Friendly and helpful people at the reseption. Stayed a couple of nights in the first week of October with husband and two daughters in their early twenties. Room (202) and bathroom was perfect, but if you`re a late night reader bring a torch.

Stayed Early October, Staff was helpful, had an issue with the Wi-Fi and the staff placed a router in my room!. Room was clean and large enough for the price. Bathroom was nice, water hot and the pressure was great. Came back after a night on the town and asked the staff for a beer for bed, and they were more than happy. Will stay again! only let down was the breakfast... omelet was burned.

Friendly and helpful staff, a charming and unusual building in a very convenient, central location. Riga is a beautiful little city with outstanding architecture from medieval to modern. The hotel has free WiFi although it can be a little patchy away from reception.

We spent two night here in early October! Charming place, excellent location. The receptionists were very helpful. We were told that the street on which the hotel is located was Baker Street in the Russian film version of Sherlock Holmes. The staff proudly point our that a couple of Russian spy films have been shot here! The Hotel itself tries a little too hard to live up to its filmy reputation in its decor. The corridors especially could be better lit for example!
But overall highly recommended!

Hotel Justus has a great down town location near all the main sightseeing places, market squares, restaurants, shops and pubs. Rooms have great character and are spacious, but in my case unfortunately also a bit noisy. Wifi connection is fast. Breakfast Latvian style is, how to put it, interesting and adventurous (think tuna tapas with blue cheese and strawberries). Staff is helpful and friendly. Would certainly recommend the hotel for a city trip.

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
