“Tasteful, convenient, first-class”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2012

The Neiburgs Hotel in Riga was an unexpected gem. Yes, the reviews were great and the city is full of charm, but we were delighted by the huge and beautifully-decorated room, top-notch service (a helpful porter who parked our car for us before the rental agency picked it up), and wonderful restaurant. We saw but didn't partake in the sauna/spa, although it looked nice; but we did wander around the huge hotel room, wondering what stories it once told. My wife and I (in our 40s) were traveling with her parents (70s, and just as active as we are). All are photographers, and the mixed weather in late June only made our photos better. Overall, excellent!

I stayed at this hotel in November of 2011, whilst I was on business in Riga, Latvia. Perfectly positioned, if you are intending to explore the old city in Riga, which I would recommend. The room was quite big, very clean and very comfortable. The food was of a very good standard, including the morning breakfasts. The staff were courteous and helpful. I enjoyed my hotel experience very much at hotel Neiburgs and would definitely consider staying at this hotel again if the opportunity arose.

I stayed in three different hotels in Riga during a recent stay (including the Bergs). The Neiburgs was the best, and a great value, too. The building itself is beautiful, with a well-known Art Nouveau face to greet you above the front door. (Tourists often stopped by the front of the building to take pictures.) The lobby and restaurant that greet you upon entry are nice, modern, with very cool oversized lamps in a sitting room. The front desk people are quite helpful. Latvians seem to be more reserved than many cultures, but they were certainly friendly and nice here. I know a little Latvian, so they obliged me in my attempts to speak Latvian, which I appreciated. But they were totally proficient in English, as well. They were also helpful in explaining some things to see in Riga. The room I got was amazing--I don't know if it was an upgrade or not, but it was more like an apartment, than a room. It had an incredible view of the Dome Cathedral and nice old buildings right across the street. Wow. Very nicely laid out, with first class features throughout (nice wooden and stained glass doors, kitchenette, modern bathroom fixtures, spacious bathroom, cool artwork, etc.) I have traveled throughout Europe, and I usually don't go too cheap on the hotels...I have never had a better room than this one (at about half of the cost of what I would pay in some other European cities). The location of the hotel is perfect--in Old Riga, a little bit set off from the bigger streets. There is sometimes a bit of noise from clubs down the street on the weekends, but it's not bad. This place is great, because you walk about a hundred feet down the old cobblestone streets, and you're right in the middle of things in bustling Old Riga. But you still feel kind of tucked away from the action, being on this nice little street. The buffet breakfast in the morning is quite good, too. Riga rocks, and I couldn't think of a better place to stay than here. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: I had a nice view--I could see Hotel Justus and the Dome Cathedral from my room.

Attended Hotel when conference. My experience based on one day conference and dinner after this. Spatial was clean with good, fresh air, without any signs of dust.
Conference room has natural light as well but it not made any trouble to screen (but light from window can make some problems but not there).
Dinner was just perfect, with nice menu, meal was very tasty, but service outstanding.
Even if you have walk at Old city of Riga it would be nice time in restaurant where you will have not only good coffee, tasteful dinner but feeling of calm and view to street as well.

I try to stay here as often as I can, when in Riga. The hotel has a nice location in old town, in a marvellous building and has managed very well to keep the atmosphere from late 1800´s. Rooms are very spacious and comfortable. Practical features such as kitchenette. Staff very friendly and discrete. Breakfast in beautiful restaurang with big windows (not served in a stuffy cellar as it is at some other places). All in all, very good value for money.

This hotel was amazing. The key advantages were the size of the rooms and the central location.

Firstly the rooms are not really rooms but studio appartments. Mine had two storeys with a separate upstairs bedroom (the size of most hotel rooms) and en-suite bathroom. Downstairs was an open-plan living room with sofas, TV, dining table and little kitchenette with a microwave, hobs, sink, fridge, some plates, but strangely no pots or cutlery (so why bother with the hobs?). There was also a second WC. Importantly, there was fast wifi. There was a bit of noise from the nearby pubs and restaurants at night but I was on the top floor. Perhaps this may have been an issue lower down.

The included breakfast buffet was plentiful, with cheese, meats, eggs, bacon, sausage, cereals a fruit. It was a little understocked, but the staff were still replenishing the food with a half-hour to go.

The location is very central in Old Town, a short walk from St Peter's church.

There was also a spa with sauna and steamroom and massage facilities. There was a tiny gym with one treadmill and a multi-use resistance machine. I did not use any of these facilities.

All in all, a great place to stay and I thoroughly recommend it!

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying in the senior suite for 2 nights this September. Wonderful furnishings, functioning kitchenette and fabulously comfortable bed. Fluffy bathrobes and slippers were a nice touch, as were the toiletries provided. Spotlessly clean. Upon reflection, the senior suite was a little large for our needs (large bed, large bath, living, galley kitchen, hall) and for our next stay we will go with a smaller room. #501 had a great view, which we had requested.

Buffet breakfast (inclusive) was extremely poor but this seems to be a Latvian thing: slightly off fruit, stale pastries, limited selection. "Filling up" at the buffet is perhaps only for the dedicated!

Service was perfunctory but this did not detract from our stay. Disappointingly, reception could not provide aspirin when requested. A beeping smoke alarm was responded to without delay (flat battery).

Location was superb: right in the centre of the old town but also close to the freedom monument and the city beyond. Walking distance to fantastic restaurants, which were mainly on the other side of the park.

Overall, a wonderful stay at an incredible price (400euro approx). This hotel had a really great "feel" - quiet, private, plush - And we will return
