“Older hotel, but very good location”
Reviewed 18 September 2013

The exterior of the hotel is to particularly inspiring ( being from the Soviet era), but it's location is great - directly across the over from the "old own" - only 10 mins walk. My room was of a good size and comfortable - bathroom was a little old, but clean. Toiletries were replaced when used.
Breakfast was extensive with many options. Fresh fruit (whole and cut) was always available. All tables were set, and each ad a vacuum jug of good coffee. Staff were plentiful, polite, and efficient.
Few children were seen at he hotel, but it wa popular ith organised groups of Japanese tourists.

Room Tip: Ask to overlook the river, the rooms at the back overlook the car park.

This is an older building surrounded on three sides by concrete housing monstrosities. The location on the far side of the river from the old town is poor although the view over the river is good. The room was large and fairly comfortable but the ensuite was very dated and in need of upgrading. The Spa was closed for annual maintenance - during the summer? The fact that tinned fruit salad was served up made the breakfast no more than poor. Similarly, the buffet dinner contained tinned fish and fruit, the main cooked courses were cold, as were the plates. Not a great advert for Radisson.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a view of the river rather than the housing estate.

I had a room at the 7th floor, with a fair view on the city, clean, large, with a business area. The staff is very helpful, a bar with good choice of snacks. The city is nearby, just across the bridge. The room design could look quite old, but they are comfortable, for an excellent price.

Room Tip: view on the river

When I visited Riga for the 1st time, I used to stay in this hotel. Not so expencive, but pretty comfortable. I had a pleasant time in this hotel, and I wish to come back again some day. Highly reccommended pace for touristic voyages and for buisness trips.

Room Tip: Rooms with view to Daugava are the best.

Front desk service is quick and "smiley".
Rooms are large and and have all you need, with magnificent view. Parking lot is +
Lobbybar personality extra nice.
Could also say that breakfast is one of the best in Riga.
Easy to walk to Oldcity, or use tram, taxi ....
"Round the corner" is some shops if you need.

Hotel was okay, nothing special. At first front desk guy was really rude didnt even tell us which was our room number or how to go there.. Room was big but there is no information about anything not about Riga or even breakfast times or vans wich take you to town(?) IF I ever travel back to Riga I would take hotel other side of the river because at this side there is nothing to see..

Room Tip: If you can choose take room from river side..
