“Very friendly and welcoming place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2011

I cannot say enough good things about this place. The location is great. The staff are friendly and attentive. The building is beautiful. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The breakfasts are fantastic. The buffet dinner is great - certainly better than we expected. The fruit and coffee and pastries are wonderful. The lobby/lounge is really nice and a great place to relax and unwind. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. My only complaint is that on our first night there was a group of Brits that were drinking in the courtyard and they got extremely drunk and were unbearably loud. Their yelling echoed up through the courtyard and it was very hard to sleep. I think the hotel staff must have asked them to leave at midnight because the racket stopped abruptly - I only wished they had intervened a bit earlier. But that's a such a minor detail. Everything else was excellent!

My family of 5 stayed for 2 nights.The buffet at night was really tasty with soup, several different salads ,rice ,pasta and an excellent chicken dish one night and a pork dish the next.This was followed by a desert and cheese and biscuits.This was all included in the price of the room .We had not expected the buffet to be good but it was the freshest meal we had in the Baltics with heaps of vegetables.Breakfast consisted of eggs,bacon,sausages,cheeses ,cold meats ,fruits ,croissants,pastries and breads,cereals ,porridges and yoghurts,juices etc.The reception staff were really helpful .It is about 8 minutes walk from old town and a 5 lats taxi ride from the bus station.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Riga. Room at front of hotel, clean and spacious. Staff very helpful and efficient. 24 hour tea and coffee a bonus and the free evening buffet was tremendous. I would definitely stay again if visiting Riga.

Stayed for 16 days and enjoyed the relaxing nature of this experience. The hotel is convenient to Old Town and any of the sights that you might want to see in Riga. The staff was always very helpful especially the front desk. Was always able to get help with directions to any where I needed to go and a big plus that everyone spoke such good Engish. The service was great in the dining room. The hotel was very clean and especially liked being able to have tea and coffee at any time of the day or night. Thanks for having the computer available since my cell phone was not giving me service as I had anticipated. Planning to return in September and hope to stay there again.

Have just returned from a 5 day trip to Riga with 13 friends to celebrate four 60th birthdays. We were all very impressed with Riga, a beautiful and interesting city. The weather was much better than we expected (hot and sunny on most days) and we encountered none of the problems we had read about before hand.
The Hotel Valdemars met and exceeded our expectations in many ways. For a modest price ( we averaged £61 per room per night) there was an excellent breakfast and very acceptable complimentary buffet dinner (the first time we have ever come across this) plus other added value such as free tea,coffee, cake, fruit. The hotel location was perfect being across the road from one of Riga's attractive well kept parks and about a 15 minute stroll to the old town.
The only negatives (very minor ones) were not all rooms had air conditioning and even in those that did it did not always work very well; also some rooms were noisy overlooking a busy road,. In the dining room the staff sometimes struggeled to keep up with food demand but to be fair some guests took unreasonable advantage of what is after all a bonus dinner! None of the above should detract from rating this hotel as excellent!
Finally I must single out the hotel's senior receptionist Dace Skrauca who is an absolute gem ; always smiling, she could not have been more helpful and charming and made our stay even more enjoyable.

Ideal location, 5 min walk to City Park and 10 mins to Riga Centre. Had a superior room which was big, clean and comfortable. Free tea, coffee, fruit and cakes during the day and included breakfast/dinner buffets were excellent. Friendly staff and nice bar area outside for a quiet drink. Should be a 4 star hotel, not 3 - If you're thinking of visiting Riga, stay here.
