“Great location great extras good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2013

Locaton in central of city, you can walk easily everywhere you want. Nice clean. Friendly atmosphere. Excellant food in morning 7-9, waffles and fruits, tea and coffe in daytime and really good and rich buffet dinner at 6-9. We reccomend to everybody if you are busy with your own activities - you dont need to think about food. Nice yard and bar. Wifi worked good.

Room Tip: We liked much location, price, food.

Dear Sahib Tallinn,
Thank you for taking the time write about our hotel on TripAdvisor. Im glad to hear that you had a pleasant stay with us and that you enjoyed the Clarion Collection concept with complimentary breakfast, waffles and evening meal. The idea of the concept is just as you write above, to help our guests get the most out of their stay.

I recently stayed for a convention for 7 night. We had alot of delegates staying here and the staff was extremely helpful and very busy working hard taking care of everyone. Motel was easy walking distance to Old Town and Hotel with free breakfast and dinner as well as afternoon snack is unheard of. Had a different Entree for dinner every night I ate there 6 of 7 nights. Value for Price is great.

Room Tip: I'm not sure if they have Fridges available for rooms but you may ask. Ask for room away from s...

Dear TxBengalFan,
Thank you for your review it was a true pleasure to have your delegates at the hotel. All Clarion Collection Hotels in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Latvia offer their guests complimentary breakfast, afternoon snack and evening meal just to give our guests the little extra.

We had lovely rooms at the front with the bay window. Clean and well-furnished. A basket of snacks and a small bottle of wine on arrival. Staff friendly enough on the whole - just one example of one being a little unhelpful when I wanted a drink.

We ate in the hotel every evening - good buffet food. Only one choice of main meal, but plenty of salad and sides. Not haute cuisine, but great value, as it is included in the price. Bit disappointed not to have cakes or muffins with afternoon tea - tried the waffles once, but tended to eat out in the day - lots of excellent places, even just round the corner. Very good breakfast. Nice seating areas on the ground floor to relax and have coffee.

Just a few idiosyncrasies in the room - like no hand soap and no drawers, and the hot water took several minutes to make its way to the shower! A little noisy at the front as others have said - but windows are double-glazed and there is not much else they could do. beds very comfortable and safe/TV/wifi all worked just fine.

The hotel is located within walking distance of the city (10-15 mins). And there are some great strolls to be enjoyed in the streets around - there is a beautiful church to the north and a fascinating art deco area with restaurants, bars and wonderful building facades - only 5 minutes to the west.

Highly recommended for a short break.

Room Tip: Probably quieter at the back.

This is a gem of a find. A hotel that provides coffee, tea and fruit all day, waffles to make at 3-5 pm and a buffet dinner at 6-9 pm and a full buffet breakfast and be included with your room is unbelievable for value. The food was even good. I would have stayed a little closer to town but could not pass this up. The rooms were nice, nothing fancy but had everything we needed. The staff was very helpful. Intars was a young man on his 2nd day working at the hotel and he was so helpful to us and made an effort to speak to us always plus he helped us getting internet maps. He will be an asset to the hotel with his helpful, friendly service. It was about a 15 min walk to old town from the hotel. Don't pass this gem up.

Room Tip: I don't think there are any reason to request a room. They appeared to be all the same.

Just returned home after another visit to the superb Hotel Valdemars.
From check in to check out everything was perfect, meals have a good variation something for everyone to enjoy.
I have stayed at many hotels in Riga since 2005 but for me this is the best for service price and superb reception staff.
All in all a great hotel.

After reading so many good reviews, I must say - I did not like this place, and I will not stay here again.

- The building is very big, and it had an old house smell all over. Luckily, not in a room.
- Check in and check out was extremelly slow. I had prepaid in advance, but at check-out I had to stand and wait at the desk for at least 5 min. for them to say OK.
- My room was facing the street with lots of traffic, and windows were NOT sound-isolated, so make sure you get a room away from the street.
- Do not stay there for dinner, unless you are a retired person from Sweden and want to interact with your fellows from the same country of the same age.

Receptionist was very polite, but also very slow. She was checking in another customer, and knowing how long it takes, I asked for a map of Riga (she just had to hand it over), but she asked me very politelly to wait until she was done with the customer. So yeah, finally when she was done, she could hand it over the map - this took like 2 seconds.

Good things:
- Cheap (62 EUR - booked via Gala Hotels - incl. breakfast and dinner)
- OK location (10min walk from the old town)
- free Wifi worked great
- free coffee/tea/water all day round
- good choices for breakfast. And dinner as well (different salads, 1 soup, 1 main dish), but atmosphere for dinner is not cozy

Room Tip: Stay away from the rooms facing the street, unless you love hearing traffic.

Valdemars is a modern hotel in a historical building from 1901, right in the center of Riga on a busy street. In the evening during rush hours there may be a problem to drive from airport by taxi in front of the hotel. Ask driver to use some near-by streets and walk a bit. Hotel is situated only some 10 minutes from the Old Town. Hotel has a small gym with some cardio machines and hand weights. Turkish sauna was nice after working hours. Hotel offers also a local dinner meal free of charge for hotel guests up to 21:00. It is very convenient if you do not want to go out.
