Forums Hotel
Ranked #43 of 110 Hotels in Riga
Reviewed 30 August 2005

My wife and I stayed here for two nights in mid-August, and we thoroughly appreciated the hotel's central location and reasonable rates. It is just a 5-minute walk from the central bus station and a 10-minute walk from the central train station. This was an important factor considering taxis add on a LVL5 fee to enter the center of town. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful prior to and during our stay, and most spoke decent English. Our double room on the third floor (reachable by elevator) faced to the side of the hotel -- it was spacious and clean, as was the bathroom. The breakfast room was somewhat cramped, which might be the reason why there is no buffet offered -- instead, guests choose one of three pre-set breakfast menus, which is then served by a waitress.

This was a great hotel right in the middle of Riga's old town. The staff were very friendly, all spoke English and were happy to put up with us even though there were 30 of us on a stag weekend. My room was a very clean double with ensuite bathroom (and a bath) and was much bigger than a lot of the hotel rooms I have stayed in.

Breakfast was ok and served until 11am, standard continental European fare, but you're probably better off heading to the cafe a few doors up the road and sampling a few of their dishes.

I would definitely go back and probably will the next time I'm in Riga, and I also recommend the place for couples.

Spacious and modern rooms and helpful employees which speak enough English. It's location is very convenient for people on a short break: on the edge of the historical city centre, just a hop from a stop of the airport bus (line 22) and not far from the main railway and bus stations. The only drawback is noise for those who like to sleep with open windows. We had to close them since a noisy music club across the street kept it's doors open until very late. Really poor sleepers need to consider the busy street just around the corner.
