“Basic and Convenient”
Reviewed 19 October 2012

Basic hotel at the edge of old town, convenient, within walking distance to most attractions and the main bus station. Beds were hard. Reasonable breakfast. Staff speaks English. Good value for the money.

Forums was so convenient for sight-seeing on foot, everything very close by as hotel situated in Old Riga.. Our room was lovely,and clean, and very well furnished, we thought to very high standard, and liked that we had a balcony Good breakfast. All staff very helpful and friendly.. Excellent value for money.

Room Tip: Having a room with balcony added to our comfort and enjoyment - as one of us was a smoker,

We have spent one night in a "Superior double room with Jacuzzi and balcony". I believe it is a very good choice for romantic couples. After a walking tour through the nice old town streets (they are nearby) to have a bottle of wine on a balcony then take a big jacuzzi and then jump to a giant bed. It is really giant as far as we slept there four (wife two children and me) with comfort. All that you need is there plus a rich breakfast. Just be careful about parking: booking.com lists this hotel as one with parking but it is not true (this could be found on a hotel's web site, so they are fair).

Room Tip: "Superior double room with Jacuzzi and balcony" is really good!

It's a very nice simple hotel at the very center of old Riga, perfect location - close to transport, shopping etc but not loud. The breakfast was Ok. The price was very good, staff friendly. I would definitely recommend it.

Forums Hotel is a perfect little hotel in the old town of Riga. It does what it says on the tin… 3* Hotel, clean, comfortable, great location, good breakfast, comfy beds, friendly helpful staff, good size rooms (we had room14) and free Wifi. It doesn’t pretend to be anything else and if you’re looking for a place to get your head down and enjoy what Riga has to offer then this is an excellent and cost effective choice. Thank you Forums !!

This is a nice, helpful place. The rooms are pleasant, and the free internet is reliable. The breakfast is also of good quality. It is on Vilna, which is particularly well-located because it is very close to 'Old Riga', the Central Market, the bus and train stations and just about all a tourist would want to do.

We did not have high expectations, because the price of the hotel was so cheap. We spent a long weekend in January, when it was extremely cold. The hotel was warm and comfortable. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom was clean and included amenities and there was plenty of hot water. Breakfast was good and included bread, cereals and all the regular things.

The location was excellent and it was easy to take a bus from the airport. If I come to Riga again, will stay in this hotel and again and can really recommend this hotel.
