“Three days in Riga”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

We ended our vacation in Riga, Latvia at Hotel Centra and it was perfect. To get to the hotel you have several options; bus or TAXI. The hotel recommended either Baltic TAXI or Red TAXI. We took Baltic TAXI. You can book your journey to Riga from the conveniently located Baltic TAXI Kiosk located as you prepare to exit the airport. For two persons round trip, 29.00 Euro or $39.00 US Dollars. The time to Riga is about 20 minutes. The hotel is in a great location in Old Town with plenty of restaurants right out the front door. The staff is excellent/very helpful and attentative and will arrange for your TAXI back to the airport. Breakfast is included in the price of the hotel and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The rooms are large and spacious; A/C and Wi-Fi work well too. Our room was on the 5th floor; great views of Old Town, with little to no street noise. We slept very comfortable at night. We loved being in Riga and when we will return; Hotel Centra is where we will stay.

Room Tip: Ask for the 5th floor; room #501 has very little street noise, but great views of Old Town.

This hotel is in a superb situation in the old town within easy walking distance of all the historic buildings and also many restaurants. Their own breakfast is very good but I did miss my toast in the mornings! Everything is spotlessly clean and although there are no frills it fits the bill perfectly.
The staff are very helpful and friendly as are most of the people in the tourist industry in Riga and as the weather was hot and sunny, it was just a lovely weekend all round. We also had the added bonus of Riga hosting the world wide choir competition while we were there, so we had music around every corner. There was a little noise at night as we had a room facing the street but as we had walked and walked around the town, we were asleep in no time and it didn't bother us. Having visited a number of the European cities, our stay in Riga has to be the best yet and a lot of it is thanks to the staff of the Centra.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper perhaps a room to the rear would suit better

Love this hotel. Central location close to dozens of restaurants. Great base for holiday exploration of the old city.

Large rooms. Clean. Great bathrooms. Good air conditioning. Brilliant breakfast. Staff were very helpful. Taxis from airport and then back readily available.

Keep checking prices they change regularly.

Yes, it can be loud on week-ends if your room faces the street so, knowing that, bring and use earplugs. The hotel itself is comfortable, a bit on the spartan side (only mirror is in the w/c), well positioned for walking the cobblestone streets, and staff is helpful.

Best of all, the breakfast is outstanding: something for every taste, including champagne, hot and cold dishes, more choices than expected. We thought breakfast in our fancy hotel in Saint Petersburg, Russia, was excellent. This one is better, even without the caviar.

Stayed here for the second time for a business trip. The hotel is a perfect location for bars and restaurants which are plentiful. The rooms are large and clean and the bathroom is decent enough.
Hotel staff are helpful and friendly and breakfast is decent for Latvian standards. The nightclub outside provides an alarm clock between 3 and 5 most mornings especially if you are a front facing room, where I have stayed twice now. This is every night of the week and not just weekends.
Overall a decent hotel but the noise outside probably means I won't stay again.

Our room was amazing, huge and well-decorated with free wifi (and the bathroom had a bath - just what was needed after a long day of sightseeing!), but we were at the front of the hotel and it was a bit noisy at night due to the pubs across the road. The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was very good.

Not much to add to other reviews. Room was big, clean and well furnished. Bed was comfortable. Bathroom fine - not enormous, but more than adequate.Complimentary bottled water in the room was appreciated.

The hotel bar only opens from late afternoon until 23:00 but so many other bars around the hotel that not a problem

Great location makes it an excellent choice to be able to explore Riga from.

The only downside was the road noise through the night (until 6am) from other bar users who drank in the road. A room towards the back of the hotel or higher may help (I was on the 3rd floor)

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the roadside to minimise noise
