there were five of us in our party, 3 adults and 2 children. getting a red taxi from airport was easy, 15min drive, 7Lats, but beware being ripped off as we did on way back to airport, taxi drivers meter broke suddenly and he tried to charge us 14 Lats, we got away with 12 Lats but u should pay no more than 10, ask price first.
we managed to get a twin and a triple room. rooms are quite spacious, beds were comfy but in our triple room there was no carpet. we stayed in the bit they are renovating at present so we had no private bathroom facilities. this wasnt a problem as there were shared facilities on the floor. i dont think hotel was full as we had no queueing for loo or shower and they were clean enough. there is a cafe on 2nd floor thats open til 6pm. it serves breakfast, tea/coffee,snacks. breakfast was continental style and i think they like porridge as that was available also. it costs 3 Lats for a full breakfast but u can pay for individual items.
the staff were friendly enough and most can speak good english.
hotel is in a good location and you get what u pay for.
the centre of riga is about 15mins walk but buses go past every few mins. good shopping centre and a visit to market behind 'stockmann' is a must as is seeing the guards that march up and down in front of the freedom monument while being watched by a very picky sergeant.
one of the kids ended up with viral foodpoisoning and we had to call doc out. ended up spending a night in rigas childrens hospital. staff were very efficient but hospital was in need of repair.
my partner got accused of kidnapping my son and both were harassed by 2 drunken russian men, so just beware!!
riga is worth a visit for cheap beer, cigs, mcD's and the few monuments and churches but i wouldnt recommend for children as theres not much for them to do.

Reviewed 21 November 2005

I stayed at the Hotel Viktorija for two nights in November and had a mixed experience. I was travelling alone so was allocated a single room and it really is a single room. A single bed that was a little on the short side for me (I am 1m 85cm) and that dull brown decor and low lighting that made me feel that I had slipped into a sepia photograph. Everything worked fine - shower, TV, lights etc. The room overlooked a main street (Caka Street) but I loved this - I live in a small village and it was great to feel part of a big city for a while. It is very possibly the oddest hotel I've ever stayed at - right outside my room was a corridor with a waiting room area lined with cinema-seat like chairs and all along the corridor was a variety of businesses - lawyers, beauticians, doctors, hairdressers etc. The hotel obviously rented out some space to help pay its way.

The following night I paid the extra 15 Lati (£15) to get a double room and this was better. A much bigger shower, what I thought was a double bed (but was actually two singles pushed together) and a bigger room generally. Interestingly, I could receive fewer TV channels than in the single room. As my flight was leaving in the evening at 11pm and checkout was 2pm I paid extra to be able to use the room until I was ready to leave for the airport. This cost me 35 Lati (£35) which is on the very steep side as I had paid 48 Lati for the two nights.

The restaurant/cafe was OK (and was down the business corridor) and the food was neither good nor bad. I filled up on the first morning with cereals, hot eggs and sausages, bread and coffee. I stuck to coffee on the second morning.

The staff are fine although the Russian-speaking staff (and the Russian speakers generally that I met in Riga) were a bit more miserable and grumpy than the Latvian-speaking staff. Everyone spoke English at the reception desk, though to varying degrees of competence. Generally, the younger the person the better their English. The staff were helpful generally, especially a young man by the name of Peter Smits who also spoke excellent English.

The hotel is only about 10 minutes walk from the city centre/Old Riga and there is a decent restaurant on the corner about 20 metres from the hotel. This hotel won't win any awards but if you need to get your head down in Riga then this is as good a place as any in this price bracket.
