“Great weekend!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2013

We have spent great weekend in Riga and partly it was thanks to Bergs.We were upgraded to higher level of room. Room was clean, nicely designed.

We appreciated CD as a gift.

Staff was very friendly and helpfull. As hotel had parking a little bit far away, we enjoyed that staff deliverred our car in 5 min.

Bergs has great location. Old town, park are reachable by hand.

Hotel Bergs has a wonderfully retro feel combined with the most helpful desk staff. It's an excellent location for access to Riga's Art Nouveau district, Old Town and parks. Traveling with our teenage son, we appreciated being upgraded to a well-designed suite.

This is absolutely one of Rigas best hotels. Great staff, good service and great rooms.
Try one of the apartment suites, with great space and really homelike design.
I would give it a fifth star if the breakfast had a wider range.

Cold breakfast is included,but you have to order and pay for any hot dish, like omelette och fried egg. For some people this is difficult in slow mornings, and usually the food come to the table when you are ready to leave. The cold breakfast is also has narrow selection so you end up a tiny bit disappointed.

Hotel Bergs was an exceptional hotel, one of the finest we have stayed in. We received an upgrade to a generous apartment room overlooking the hotel's entrance courtyard. The front desk staff were excellent and very helpful throughout our stay.

The hotel is located about 5-10 mins walk from the Old City, via a nice park and along the picturesque canal. It is situated extremely close to the the Riga Central train station.

The rooms themselves were spacious and modern - our room had a small kitchenette too.

We could not fault Hotel Bergs and their associated restaurant Bergs - a wonderful place from which to explore Riga.

Hotel location was not close too town about 30-40 min walk . Cabs were ok only 4 Lats . Rooms are small but clean . Bed is tiny and not comfortable at all. ( actually coved in plastic ) . But main issue was as not a boisterous stag do , we were constantly told to be quiet and told there would be a 300 lat fine if they deemed us too loud . Service was also not that friendly . Have been Riga before and stayed at friendly franks which was 10 times better for stag doo's . Don't get the breakfast it's not north worth even a 1 lat

Stayed in one of the Penthouse Suites at the Hotel Bergs Riga on August 14-18, which was an excellent choice! It's located only a 10-minute walk from the Old City and within a quiet residential / shopping area with galleries, luxury boutiques and a few nice restaurants.

The suite is extremely well designed and everything works beautifully -- air conditioning like a champion, plenty of hot water in the two showers, a full kitchenette downstairs with utensils, coffee / tea-making, fully-stocked fridge and mini-bar, etc.

I had been worried about the possibility of late-night parties in the three adjoining Penthouse Suites (per previous reviews below), however, I was informed that the hotel management put an end to such shenanigans several months ago. Happily, our neighbors were quiet and respectful throughout the weekend, so I enjoyed four nights of very peaceful sleep.

Service levels and English language capabilities from all staff were excellent.

Before arrival, I corresponded with Kristine, the Front Office Manager, who was extremely helpful in arranging restaurant reservations for two nights, as well as securing a reservation for us at the Havana Beach Lounge in Jurmala on a beautiful and sunny Saturday. Kristine also proactively offered round-trip transportation in the hotel's mini-van (at a fee, of course) to / from Jurmala, which was the perfect alternative to taking the train, the 2.5-hour boat trip or a bus from Riga.

I also highlight Linards at the front desk, and who was the driver on duty for our Jurmala day-trip adventure. Like all the staff at the Hotel Bergs, he was very hospitable, professional and friendly.

Room Tip: Penthouse Suite on the hotel's 5th / 6th floors was extremely spacious and comfortable. Both th...

Definitely a boutique luxury hotel. Architecture is exquisite and the rooms are well appointed and designed. Best of all, they are simply huge. The one I was in was 45 sq meters. Had a couch, work desk, eating table, kitchenette. The works. The bed was very comfy and they have wonderful pillows. All sorts of sizes and types to please everyone. I smiled the whole time I was here.

Cold buffett breakfast is included, but it was limited in choice. Plus, if you want eggs you have to pay about $7 extra (3.5 LTV). Seems to me if you’re already paying hundreds of dollars for a room – they can throw in some eggs.

It is located just outside the old town about a 10 minute walk away. It's inside an area called Bergs Bazar which has some wine bars, cafes and other artisan shops. Absolutely a cute place to stay.

I loved my stay here and also stayed in old town in another supposed "luxury hotel". Bergs was by far the better choice, and if I ever come back to Riga - this would be where I would stay.

Now, although I 100% recommend this place, since they consider themselves to be a luxury hotel, I will say they are missing some small things:

1- No luggage stand.
2- Safe does not fit a laptop.
3- Add a makeup/shaving mirror in the bathroom. A scale would be a nice touch too.
4- And please provide a tissue box.
5- And finally, although it must be a cultural thing, almost all of the male front desk clerks never cracked a smile during my 4 days there. They were as nice and helpful as could be, but simply never smiled. Very weird. The women did - but there are more men working here. Not sure how you change this, but it would be nice to see a friendly face once in a while. The friendliest and happiest man was the doorman who always welcomed me home with a smile.

Room Tip: Higher floors will let in more natural light.
