Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in August 2010 in a single room with en-suite shower and toilet. The decor is in the typically minimalist style which seems common among Nordic/Baltic countries. My room was on the second floor, facing a spacious internal courtyard; nothing to complain. It was silent, spacious, the towels were soft and the shower, the bed and the floor were all spick and span. The only small comment is that the room was rather spartan in decor however I was there to visit Riga and the Valdemars hotel did its main duty which was to give me a safe, clean roof over my head for my stay for a reasonable price. Thumbs up for the lovely people at reception; their warm welcoming smile and helpful problem-solving attitude were so appreciated by this traveller. Other plus points are: location (15 min walk to old city centre) and free tea and coffee at reception. Would certainly consider staying there again on my next visit. One tip: if the banks are closed and you need to change money try the Gallerija centre in the old town. There's a bank that is open until 8pm and charges a nominal 50 latvian centimes fee to exchange money; much less than the exchange bureaus in the streets of the old town which run a complete racket in commission fees/charges.
