“Trip to Riga in October 2012”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2013

We went to Riga in October 2012. The staff in Man-Tess was nice and friendly. Our room was on second floor, and we found it comfy. The bed was good, the bathroom/toilet was clean and the furniture was old but cool. The room was cleaned every day. If you're visiting Riga for the first time, ask the reception for a map. The location of the hotel was very good, it was right in the middle of Old Town. Though the streets were quite noisy during the weekends, you got to sleep. The breakfast was quite small, but manageable. You got a fresh cup of coffee every morning. The hotel was very cheap, two students could stay there for 5 nights.

Breakfast, bed, bathroom, location, service, internet and price all perfect. The only problem was the noise from people outside throughout the night. I am normally a deep sleeper but i was still woken up on a few occasions and never felt i got the best nights sleep. Pity because it is perfect in every other way.

my mom and i had a great time in this hotel. the place is so small and intimate that the coffee maid remembered just the way we liked our coffeee every morning! and also the breakfast is very satisfying.
the stuff was very nice, informative, and helpful. the rooms were clean and neat.
i have to point out the excellent location of this hotel - right in the middle of the oldtown, 5-10 minutes slow walk from all the major sights!
i loved Riga so much that i will definatly return someday soon, and when i do, i will stay in hotel man tess!

I want to echo everything that warlord said in a previous review...because I think I'm in the same room. (#23?)

This is my fourth visit to this hotel in the space of about five years. Always a friendly welcome, always a more than adequate breakfast. Free and easy Wi-fi (only once, three years ago, the Wi-fi signal to my room was so weak I had to take my laptop computer to the reception area; no big deal).

This room is very up-to-date. The bathroom is perfect. The writing desk has European and British outlets above desk level; I can charge my phone and use my laptop at the same time.

Yes, the noise of the party-goers can be heard most of the night! I actually didn't mind it; when it woke me up, I soon went back to sleep in the comfortable bed.

One year they had only one available room--the suite on the top floor--and I was happy to have this delightful hideout at little or no extra cost. Ask if it's available! It's at the top of a narrow spiral staircase so it's maybe not for everyone, but what an enjoyable stay that was. If you have a small conference or party, it's even better, with its big dining table and bar. But this year (today!) I'm happy to be able to work away at my desk in room 23.

The staff here have done me numerous small kindnesses over the years. Really, I can't think of a better place to stay at a sane price.

Room Tip: Ask for the top-floor suite if you're a good stair-climber. Also mention if street noise would b...

I loved this hotel and really loved my room which was on the corner. The inside room was really nice with long carpeted drapes for the windows and nice beds. You are located inside Old Town, so at night the noise can get a bit loud with party goers if you aren't out yourself.

The location is amazing and located right across from a Rimi store so you can get all your supplies (from alcohol or water to food to whatever) for your stay in Riga. I would stay here again if I go back.

This hotel right in the center of Riga in the old town is rather small but cosy. Being at the hotel for the first time we had ordered a economy room, which we found very small. No problems upgrading to a larger room. Being in the old town, parking is a problem but a few blocks away there is a parking house. The breakfast buffee was included in the price. The location of the hotel is perfect.

Man-Tess is in a great spot in the old downtown. Rooms are very clean, but the place has clearly not been renovated since the early 90s. The bathroom was consequently pretty tired, e.g. sink had permanent discoloration, tile a little sketchy, etc. However, things were all quite clean so I can't complain. Overall this is a fine place for a night, but don't expect too much atmosphere. The breakfast is pretty good, with a small buffet of breads, meat, cheese, and a few pastries. At $65, a good value all considered.
