We stayed in the Konventa Seta Hotel for an entire week in August and were pleasantly surprised by it. Having stayed in a mess of other hotels/hostels the previous months and never finding the right one to come back to another time due to different objections, the Konventa Seta gave me pretty much everything I wanted in a hotel. A beautifully big room with a tv that received national as well as international broadcasting (Discovery at least), a big bed (which we may or may not have broken during our stay), a rather large bathroom with no water heating trouble whatsoever and even our own fridge including a freezer portion. There were big windows installed on either side of the room (I'd sooner call it a small apartment) that gave us a lot of light plus the availability to smoke from indoors. Two fashionable closets for him and her, and turnover service every day from 12:00 to 14:00 (if you're out of bed by then). Free wifi worked reasonably well but that it didn't work any better may just have been my excuse for a phone. The location is simply exquisite, situating itself in the middle of the Old Town as this hotel was formerly a convent with a church right next to it (the Old Town emanating from that central place). You can pretty much walk to anywhere in the busy bar and restaurant scene in 5 minutes from here. For the price you're paying (which was about 50 euros p/n), there is not a better hotel experience in Riga.
