Clarion Collection Hotel Valdemars
Ranked #23 of 110 Hotels in Riga
Reviewed 17 March 2014

I come to Riga about 4 or 5 times a year and for the past few years have always stayed at Hotel Valdemars. Frankly, there is no reason to go anywhere else. The staff are always helpful and go the extra mile - e.g. having something ready for me to eat when I arrive from the airport at around 22.30 without my having to ask for it in advance.

We stayed in this hotel on a stag do. All the staff in the hotel were very friendly and helpful when advice was required for where to go in the town.
One bit of advice is if you're going out in the evening and will be returning to the hotel by taxi then make sure you take a card with the hotels address as it seemed like a lot of the taxi drivers weren't sure of the location of the hotel.
Would stay in this hotel again in a flash.

The suite tandart we stayed was far from expected, smoke smell in, no hooks in the bathroom. Evening meal in the restoran was disappointment, no tablecloth, no glasses, no cutlery on the tables.......

Dear Vadim K
Thank you for writing a review of your stay on tripadvisor, I am sad that we didn’t live up to your expectations. Our evening meal is supposed to have a casual feel at home atmosphere so that our guests can relax after a busy day at work or in city, we therefore have chosen not to have tablecloths, glasses and cutleries on the table.
Warmest,
Helen – General Manager

From the exceptionally lovely welcome (including a ploughman's style salad which had been prepared for us as we had arrived late) through to the relaxing and homely lounge area with constant free tea and coffee, the small gym and steam room area, exceptionally clean rooms and fantastic location in the heart of the Art Nouveau area; I would totally recommend this hotel. The breakfast spread was extensive and fresh as was the evening buffet. Much of the fresh produce we has seen at the covered market was on offer. The mid afternoon cake and waffle making facility was also a nice touch. A gem of a hotel, only 10 min stroll from the heart of the old town.

My wife and I have recently returned from a visit to Riga and we stayed here for two nights. The location is really good as it is handily placed for the city's attractions. Check in was very smooth and the man on the reception was very helpful (I think his name was Karlis). The room we stayed in was a pleasant surprise. We had upgraded to a suite and found it clean and big. There were many nice touches too such as sugared cranberries and a teddy bear in the bedroom which you have an option to buy at the end of your stay. The bed was big and comfortable and being at the rear of the hotel, was also very quiet. There is also a steam room, jacuzzi and gym that we made use of, though it wasn't clear how to operate the jacuzzi. Meals are self service and were very nice when we stayed. Overall I couldn't compliment the staff and this hotel enough and would recommend to anyone visiting this beautiful city.

I stayed twice at this hotel in October 2013. Both visits were excellent. Staff is friendly and well trained, dinner and breakfast buffets were tasty, walking distance to city center and most sights, and the building itself was historic. I was traveling alone and felt safe even walking the neighborhood at night.
