“Good Hotel, Excellent Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2011

Stayed here for 3 nights from 25 November 2011. Hotel is in an excellent location just a few meters from the main street in the old town. Room decor is a little dated but the staff and maid service are excellent. Breakfast is good and has a good range of hot and cold food (although a little bizarre for the typical English palate! Overall, highly recommended for a short stay in the lovely Baltic city.

This is nice hotel in the very downtown of Riga, Latvia, perfectly located for tourists.
People are friendly, there are many restaurants and pubs nearby, especially I recommend
"Melnie Muki" (Black monks), 200 m from a hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms on the yard have better view, including the Peter baznica.

I used to be a regular at Konventa Seta some 5 years ago and really enjoyed it. Since I now visited Riga in November in two concecutive weeks I decided to stay there again.

First of all, the location is perfect for exploring the old town. Everything is very close by. Also, there is a supermarket some 50 meters from the hotel. Plenty of bars, restaurants in the old town. As the hotel is situated in an old convent you can feel the history all around you. However - this property is in a need of renovation..For my first stay I stayed in a twin room in the main building. Very, very basic, yet no complaints given that the cost for the night was 45 euros. For the second stay we reserved a two - story apartment (room 4011). The price was 115 euros but as this apartment can sleep 5 its not a bad value at all. Wireless internet is free and works fine - you will need to ask for the username and password at the reception. The breakfast is not spectacular but keeping in mind the price one should not complain. If going to Riga also check out hotel Centra - the location is same but the rooms are freshly renovated. For these dates Centra was twice as expensive so I picked Konventa. Facing the same price difference I would pick Konventa again.. otherwise consider Centra.

This is an excellent hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed every moment of our stay at the Konventa Seta. Our room was very large, spacious and extremely clean. The bathroom was large and modern, with a bath and shower.
Everything was extremely clean, towels and sheets etc and the maid service was very good.
The hotel is located right in the center of Old Riga, which is great for exploring the sights. It is in a good location for Restaurants and shopping too, with a modern shopping center just around the corner.
The hotel bar has just been renovated, It is comfortable and relaxing with a modern twist.
This really is a beautiful hotel, and we will be going back without a doubt!

This hotel is well priced and in an excellent location close to train, bus,shopping and old town major sites.We booked a junior suite which was located at the end of a series of dimly lit passageways.
The room was very spacious and nicely furnished, the only drawback was the pokey bathroom. The shower recess was a corner cubicle so tiny that it was impossible to wash without hitting the walls or fixtures.The breakfast was just okay.
Having said that we were more than happy with our stay because of its location and price, several of the reception staff were also pleasant and friendly.

We really enjoyed our week stay here. We ordered a return taxi from airport via hotel by e-mail which was very smooth and reasonable. Rooms were very spacious and clean, suite was fantastic. Prices in bar and restaurant were very reasonable, and we ate meals there most nights. Hotel was very safe, and had no problems in area, as lots of people about. Staff were very friendly. Hotel was relaxed but efficient. Breakfast had a good continental choice. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a good clean, professional hotel, near all amenities, and attractively priced for food, drinks. Food was really good.

Neil England.

Room Tip: Suite rooms very spacious.

A fairly basic hotel with a prime central location and a good price. The room was large and well heated (essential at this time of year) but with only basic furnishings - there were no tea/coffee making facilities or refridgerator and a small old fashioned TV. We had booked a double bed but were given a twin room. When we reported this the beds were pushed together but still had individual quilts! Staff were polite and helpful. Breakfast was included and was plentiful in nice surroundings.

This is far from a luxury hotel but it is very good value for money given its position in the centre of the old town.

Room Tip: We had a room at the back of the hotel which was quiet and peaceful.
