Rixwell Old Riga Palace Hotel
Ranked #33 of 110 Hotels in Riga
Reviewed 11 June 2012

Location is great, free WiFi is great, rates are fine, rooms are ok (stayed alone, otherwise would have considered them to be too small). The only thing that might cause problems for some is the shower cabin - a bit small. Also, if travelling with kids, don't let them surf the channels. Hustler TV is freely accessible:).

We stayed on our night turnover on the way to Italy and were offered free upgrade. This hotel is very conveniently situated on the edge of the Old Riga, close to the City Hall. It's a good choice for 3-4 nights stay for a city trip. As I have been staying in different hotels throughout Riga for the past 15 years, I really appreciate their approach to organize breakfast. Very-very nice & tasty food, great selections including even sparkling wine for those, who have had a hot night))))
Tried to create "Don't like", but desperately))) May be floor heating would be great in the bathroom on December night. But I guess in this case hotel would have been "Sold Out" through the whole year)))))

The Old Riga Palace is superbly located in the centre of Old Town Riga, only a couple of minutes walk from bus no.22's first stop after the bridge. The rooms, being a little on the small side, are clean and comfortable - ideal for a short stay. The breakfasts are plentiful with lots of choice, sausage, bacon, cold meats, salad, pancakes and much more - including champagne and vodka! The hotel as a small bar and the prices are comparable to most bars in town. Riga is a beautiful picturesque town and well worth a 3 day break. I would recommend this hotel without doubt

Note: Watch out for polite locals asking you to change 10 or 20 Lat notes into coins. The coins they give you look like 2Lat coins but are infact Lithuanian and worth nothing in comparison

I spent 3 days at the Old Riga Palace Hotel in Riga in May, 2012. It was a very good hotel and extremly good value for money. The reception staff were very pleasant, always smiling and helpfull. The hotel, although an old building has been recently well refurbished. Rooms are very good, had AC, free wireless internet, good shower facilities, flat screen TV, minibar that was well stocked. Rooms do seem to be variable in size though, looking at the floor map. Breakfasts were good with plentiful buffet. Hotel also has a large suana, shower and hot tub room that can be privately booked for 1 hour for 15 LAT's, in additon to a quite small exercise room.
The hotel is right on the edge of the old city, and just a few minutes walk from the very active street cafes, restaurants, bars and night clubs.

The hotel is situated in a city block that has several tumbled down buildings, but once you get over the view behind the hotel, it really is great value, and a good place to stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that faces the front of the hotel, or towards the river.

I liked this hotel, it's clean, has friendly staff and it's right on the edge of the old town. An adequate breakfast buffet, vodka shots and champagne were available as part of the buffet. The rooms were clean but the single beds are quite small, perfectly adequate though. I'm happy to recommend this one.
