You MUST stay here - you will love it.
I've been to Riga about 10 times and stayed in various hotels. I will return to Hotel Neiburgs - it is at the top of the list. It may have one of the best locations for a tourist in Old Town. It sits on a nice quiet charming street. The exterior Jugendstil architecture is exquisite, yet the rooms are thoroughly modern - baths using Duravit and Grohe. Everything about it is comfortable, elegant, but not stuffy. (It is designed in a modern minimalist manner - so if you need baroque furniture, I suggest going elsewhere.)
The staff is friendly & helpful. Breakfasts are delicious! The hotel restaurant is exceptional. I stayed at the hotel for 2 weeks and ate dinner at the resaurant several times. I often wondered why people would eat at the restaurants across the street (I tried them) when Neiburgs was far superior for the same price. The bar also has someunique drinks worth trying - cucumber gin & tonic, rhubarb & Latvian specialties.
I could go on and on. It is not perfect - I would say 4.5 stars. But it may well achieve true 5 star service. (4.5 is pretty darn good & my recommendations for the hotel are really minor - f. ex. when renting a car, use a better service.)
You will love your stay at the Neiburgs.More
