“Good stylish hotel in Riga”
Reviewed 17 March 2013

The hotel is placed in the old town in Riga, very close to city centre. The atmosphere of the hotel brings you back to old time, with its old style furniture, but the comfort is modern. My room was clean and nice, even if small. Personnel is quite gentle and you have the impression of be very welcomed. The breakfast is average, the food tastes good, even if I don't recommend to take the cappuccino (a gentle warning to my citizenship: you will be disappointed! ) . WiFi was for free, but in my room at the third floor, the signal was poor.

It is really a fabulous hotel. Photos fully comply fabulous atmosphere. This luxurious hotel, with its magnificent history. I was staying there as a transit by just 1 night, but still managed to see the beauty of Old Riga. Entrance to the hotel is located just in front of the Duomo.
Hosts of hotel skillfully combine historic fairytale style together with modern technology,
I should add that breakfast is delicious, varied and for all tastes - from health food (oatmeal, yogurt, fruits and berries) to satiated food (meat, fish, potatoes, cakes).
How to get there? Taxi - easily, it cost 8 Lat from airport, Next day I took bus N 22 (station near the bridge) and reached to airport for 20 min, it cost me only 0,7 Lat! Great!,

We really enjoyed our 3 nights at the Gutenbergs. The location is right in the old town - an easy walk to all of old Riga and the Art Nouveau district was only about 20 minutes on foot. The staff were lovely, spoke good English and were friendly, polite and helpful. Rooms fairly small but adequate with a mini bar but had no hit drinks making facilities (we weren't given the characterful rooms you see on their website, but they were clean and fine).
We were on the ground floor and directly opposite a late night bar which was noisy on the Friday night, so I'd recommend asking for a room the other side.
There was a roof terrace which I am sure is a lovely place for an evening drink, but not in February! Breakfast was fine with hot bacon, egg, pastries, fruit - everything you need really, although good coffee was extra. Overall, given that we only paid £230 for 3 nights, 2 doubles, I feel we had extremely good value.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back at weekends. The bar opposite is noisy and open late.

We stayed there at the weekend. As there is a nightclub opposite, it was very noisy at nighttime. Classical old, floors not even in some rooms (makes you feel as onboard of a ship). Breakfast ok but nothing special.

Room Tip: Rooms on the courtyard side are quieter.

One of the best things about this hotel is the location. It is on the edge of old town. Everything in Old Town is in walking distance.
The room that we stayed in was small but had all we needed and was very clean and neat. The only odd thing about the room was it was not level. The whole room was at an angle (I'd guess 15°-20°). This was very strange and took some getting used to.
Breakfast is good, worth getting up for it.

Honestly speaking if you'd like to stay in Riga better to choose another hotel despite of location of Hotel Gutenbergs. I would like to strongly recommend to visit only terrace of it. It is really good view in sunny day
All the rest what is concerning hotel is not good
Room is rather old, you can switch off the light in your room only near the entrance door, you will never find air-condition but if you suddenly will open window you will smell smoking of young people staying near bar Appelsin downstairs
I feel that floor in my room not exactly horizontal and it necessary to take it in mind. When you going to sleep you will feel that you lay on bed up side down
May be it is only one room which I have stayed but anyway it is example
Also you will not have room-service in this 4 star hotel because it is simply not exist

Room Tip: ask for high floor

Very well located in the city close to the centre. Rooms are spacious and decent. the hotel overall has character. I have stayed several times and have found the staff friendly. I have never even in the restaurant so cannot comment on dinners, but the breakfast is of a good standard
