Reviewed 3 June 2013

This hotel is directly in Old Town on a street with lots of pubs and bars. I don't think those pubs close until 5 am because we heard drunken noise and singing until 5 am on most mornings. Things improve a bit if you put in ear plugs, close the windows and turn on the air. The rooms are a good size though I had trouble working the shower because it has one of those funky Euro faucets and I seemed to get either all cold or all hot water. The front desk staff is helpful and the complimentary breakfast is very nice. They appear to be starting some type of renovation. It would be a great hotel if it wasn't next to 4 all night drinking establishments.

Great hotel! Even though it was quite big it still had that cozy feeling. Exceptionally nice staff, nice, big and light rooms and a great breakfast with a lot to choose from. We were there for a bachelorette party and they even agreed to put a small bottle of champagne with a greeting from the brides maids in each room. All in all, I really recommend this hotel!

I'm staying in hotel "Radi un Draugi" (Relatives and Friends) not for the first and ir says that I like this hotel. Well renovated, very clean and serves very hearty breakfast!
I hope that hotel will follow its commitment to be environment friendly and sustainable and step-by-step will exchange its light bulbs into halogen, power saving or LED lights.

Have no complaints about this hotel. The staff, rooms, atmosphere itself was good and the location is wonderful.
Rooms were clean and nice, quite cozy and I didn't have any problems about the noise, which is common for city centres.
Good breakfast, though, nothing extra special.
Overall, would definitely recommend this hotel for those staying in Riga.

I have stayed at Radi several times and always friendly service.
It is very central in the Old Town and price level is in the low end for this location/standard.
Rooms are clean and nice and bathroom new renovated.
Free WiFi in all rooms (that is almost standard at all hotels now) but Radi also
have some tablets you can borrow for free!
Nice hotel bar/relaxing area - only minus was that they didnt serve beers in the bar, but
you have plenty of bars just outside the door.

Radi un Draugi is the usual hotel for my stays in Riga. The staff are friendly, and the whole place seems professionally and honestly - not always the case in Riga - run. The location is in the heart of the Old Town, which is one of its main attractions, but also downsides, since it can become quite noisy from late-night revellers (even mid-week in February with - 10 degress temperatures). They were in the process of renovating a new wing (Feb 13), the new rooms were very acceptable.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter
