“good place to stay in Riga”
Reviewed 3 March 2013

We have stayed in the Konventa Seta Hotel for two nights in February 2013 for a weekend break. Good and relatively cheap accommodation with discount rates was offered. The hotel is located in the heart of a historic district within a short walking distance from the railway station and central bus terminal. The hotel room was comfortable, well designed and clean. Breakfast with good choice of food was offered. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The only nuisance was that disturbing noise was heard through the closed door from the corridor.The hotel should use better sound insulation. But in general, we will certainly stay in this hotel again!

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.

Room Tip: We had a room in building 3

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here, to the extent of making me wonder why I'd generally only chosen five star hotels in the past. My ground floor room was spacious and clean. Fairly simply decorated but all the details were present and correct. I could smoke in it (don't worry, such rooms are the exception) there was a nice, big desk in front of a nice, big window. Plenty of sockets. All the light fittings worked. There was always good pressure and hot water in the shower. The wi-fi was completely free. In other words, everything I want in a hotel room, stuff better than in some other hotel rooms costing eight times as much.
The bar / lounge is very pleasantly decorated and comfortable and relaxing with friendly service. The restaurant menu is available here or in the restaurant proper, which is divided into four or five, domestic-size spaces. With each to a different theme, I found myself breakfasting in the kitchen, dining in the formal dining room and taking supper in the library. I really enjoyed the food.
The hotel architecture has wonderful character inside and out, being set in an old convent, right in the heart of the the most beautiful part of town. A short stroll through twisty, cobbled lanes has one at the opera house in one direction and via arched passageways and little squares to the St.Peter's church and beyond in the other.
It's not the sort of grand hotel one goes to as a destination or experience in its own right. Yet in its own, modest way, it achieved something more significant: a real sense of not really having to think about it and so allowing one to be at home, abroad. Which is pretty much perfect in my book.

Room Tip: I stayed in room number four.

I have stayed there only for one night and was really shocked! Of course first of all, I should say that for one night stay I was charged only 47 eur (breakfast excluded). The location is excellent as leaving the hotel you will find yourself in the heart of the old city. I asked for the breakfast and paid 5 eur additional and the breakfast was OK for the amount paid. Now about the room. I was given the room in the building 4 on the second floor. The light was only on the first floor that is why I needed to use my mobile to light my way and to be able to open the door. The room was really cold as the heating was switched off, so I turned on the heating and in 3 h the room was warm. The worst suprise was that fact that the water in the shower was cool, I guess about 15 degrees and it was impossible to change the temperature! Awful! The walls were dirty and looked awful! The furniture was awful - old and dirty! Definitely I would not recommend this hotel! It is better to be charged more in another hotel then to stay here even for 1 night!

Room Tip: Do not accept to be located in building 4!

My wife stayed here for a couple of days having been in a Radisson Blu also in Riga for a Conference. We decided we would like to get a feel for something more local and less cosmopolitan. We were not disappointed. The staff were most helpful, the room was a spacious junior suite and the only criticism was a slightly hard mattress. The locatiuon is in the heart of the old city and is perfect for sightseeing and access to the wonderful buildings, museums, cafes and restaurants Riga has to offer. We would go again.

Room Tip: A junior suite is recommended - we saw a twin room and it was small and pokey.

Just back from Riga and our stay at the Konventa Seta Hotel. Like others have said, location is perfect for tourists. We stayed in room 129, which is a junior suite that faces a portion of the courtyard, but mainly another building. The dimly lit room is quite large with a dated sofa suite and large, slightly hard bed. The bathroom is not large, but modernly tiled with a shower cabinet. The narrow shower would have been better if it had a shelf for shampoo (shower gel container is attached to the wall) and didn't have a large handle that constricted movement. A hairdryer is included and works well. The room unfortunately doesn't offer a mini fridge or coffee/tea facilities. Weather was turning colder while we were there, but the room was well warm enough. The first night we were kept awake by other guests, especially the young men next door who were talking loudly with their door open and the man who kept knocking on our door looking for 'Dennis.' The walls are thin. It became quieter after the weekend.
The front desk staff are friendly and helpful and the maids did a good job every day. Breakfast buffet was fine, but awkwardly presented in the hallway of the restaurant next door.

We have just arrived home after a 3-night stay at Konventa Seta.
It's a beautiful old hotel, consisting of several buildings in the heart of old Riga.
The Convent yard itself is a place were you really can feel the history in the walls. The buildings have been very tastefully renovated.
The location is perfect - you have all the attraction of old Riga just a few minutes away.

Our room was quite normal for a three star hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful.
The breakfast was average.

Since Riga is popular among tourists also at night time it was not good to have a room facing the street .. We lived on the first floor, and the noice from the street was very loud - you could hear people talking, laughing, screaming and cars driving by. Ear plugs are recommended, but otherwise I would definitely come back to this hotel!

Room Tip: Bring ear plugs in case you get a room facing the street!
