“Extremely basic”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014

A place to sleep, wireless internet, little more. Quite inexpensive, so I am sure that's the appeal, but I don't get all the 4 and 5 star reviews. Nice staff, yes, but that should be absolute basic for a hotel at any price. A case of "you get what you pay for."

First time to Latvia, loved every minute. Hotel in good location, easy to find. Hotel rooms very large, basic and clean.

Reception/night staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast room has a 1920`s feel, very clean and good selection of breakfast. Staff all smiling and happy.

Would definitely stay here again, when visiting Riga again.

Great hotel, centrally positioned in the old town, with easy access to restaurants, bars and shopping facilities.

Our room, a twin, was a good size, if a little spartan in appearance. A couple of pictures would have brightened the place. We didn't specify a double at reception (having said on Easytobook's website that we would prefer a double) but got a twin and decided to keep the room as it overlooked a quiet side street. So we pushed the beds together and made a lovely huge bed and the room cleaner managed to leave them like that and make it up as a double bed.

There was no problem with breakfasts but we thought in the high season the small area where the food is set out would become a bit congested.

We ate in the Golf Bar and found the little snack menu quite reasonable. A selection of small dishes made up a pleasing lunch in pleasant surroundings after a morning of bustle and sightseeing.

Both the hotel reception and the bar staff were very helpful and eager to please. If we visit Riga again we would most definitely stay at this hotel.

Writing this after my second stay at Konventa Seta, my first visit being 3 years previous. A lovely quiet hotel right in the heart of old town Riga. The staff are exceptionally friendly and very helpful. The rooms (I have stayed in building 2 both times) are fairly basic but feature very comfortable (single in my case) beds, en suite bathroom and a little kitchenette for those that want to cater for themselves. The included buffet breakfast is very nice and suits those that want a hot selection as well as more typical "continental" items. The hotel has a restaurant attached (which hosts breakfast) and the art deco theme, right down to 1930s music, is really nice. If visiting on business or pleasure it's a great location and minutes walk from the opera house, some of the best restaurants in Riga and not far from the awesome market.

I stayed here while on business for a week in Riga, and despite my initial reservations found the hotel to be clean and comfortable with a cosy bar and restaurant. The hotel is perfectly located for exploring the old city and there is a plethora of fantastic bars and restaurants within an easy walk. I was lucky enough to be booked into a suite which had a comfortable living area with sofas and a workdesk and a lovely view over the cobbled streets below, and my room was in a part of the hotel that backed onto the old convent wall which made it even more interesting!!! Although I ate out in the evenings as there is so much to see and do nearby, I did eat breakfast in the hotel which I found to be plentiful and of a high standard. If you are on a trip to Riga (for any reason) I would recommend this hotel as a base.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights in February/March 2014.
The hotel was very easy to get to from the airport using the cheap public bus and in an exceptional location for exploring Old Riga, as well as only a short walk from Central Riga. The room was clean and functional, although a little small. The staff were great. They were really friendly and willing to provide help in any way possible, allowing us to check in early and looking up bus schedules for us, etc. All of this was at an excellent price when booked online, and I cannot emphasise enough the excellent value for money! I would definitely stay here again and would recommend to anybody travelling to Riga.

This hotel is near the opera house, and right in the old city. While the rooms are not fancy, they are warm and there's plenty of hot water (this was great since it was really cold!). And, they are very clean. The breakfast buffet is hearty and served in an attractive restaurant in the art nouveau style.
The front desk was kind and helpful with directions and arranging taxis.
I would stay in this hotel again!
