“great location and great breakfast”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

The hotel is right in the old part of town and about 10 mins walk from almost anywhere. Good for public transport too. Breakfast was superb, and I think they have taken on board a previous comment, because fresh fruit was served every day of our stay. WiFi seemed to work fine for us as well - maybe there are blind or weak spots. Only qualm is the size of the room my parents were given. We booked our room from Kazakhstan, and went for the rock bottom cheapest room, while my parents booked from UK and booked a room one level above the economy class. In the end, our room was quite a bit larger than theirs. Don't know if this has anything to do with our respective travel agents, since neither of us booked directly. the only other problem was that our room faced out over the yard, where early each morning the garbage collectors arrived, and then the recycling truck, and then another delivery or collection... had to keep the windows open because the a/c was out of order! No late mornings for us!

Hotel is decorated very nicely and the location is perfect. Breakfast is normal standard, but there are no fresh fruits. Service is good, but I think that maybe the receptionists could stand more and not just sit behind the big counter.

Great hotel with an awesome location. Service was excellent and hotel very clean and modern. Perfect place to stay when visiting Riga as everything ( attractions, restaurants, shops ) located just a walking distance away. Definitely value for the money.

I really enjoyed our stay at the Wellton Old Riga Palace Hotel. It's a little out of the way, though really the Old Town in Riga is so small that being out of the way doesn't mean much. It is really accessible to the bus station the the Central Market. The rooms are really tiny, though the bathroom is substantial in size. It was very comfortable and I slept very well. Great shower and wi-fi is accessible, easily, in the room. Breakfast is substantial and the servers are really attentive to making sure that there is always enough food for people to eat.

This hotel could be something special Its location is perfect. You can walk easily around the old city and the bus and train stations are just five minutes away. First impressions on walking into the hotel is that of a friendly art nouveau something different hotel but that is where the charm ends. The bedrooms are small and cramped with only superior rooms having any kind of a view and that would probably be of the street below. The most disappointing part of the hotel is its catering. Breakfast gives you a large choice but frequently has break downs with the coffee and juice machines and hot food is always just luke warm. Trying to get a meal at any other time of day was virtually impossible with excuses such as large party in no food left kitchen closed till 5 so we always eat out in the abundance of very reasonably priced restaurants in the city. You could not get a coffee in the mornings until the bar opened at 12 30 and if you want a good strong pot of tea they will charge you for an extra tea bag. The hotel also lacks anywhere comfortable to sit unless you use the crowded hotel reception area or the outside bar area overlooking a dusty lane. Sorry Old Riga Palace will definitely be back to Riga but will stay elsewhere.

Room Tip: You need to pay for superior room unless you want a cupboard
