“Great stay with friendly faces in the middle of everything”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2011

Hotel vecriga is a quaint and cute place with highly respectful and kind staff and a lovely little courtyard. Breakfast was much better than i had expected from the usual fare i see having travelled a lot on business in north america. The blankets were warm and the rooms a little cool which i love for a deep rest after exploring the beautiful surroundings. The building is old and the walls a little thin but traffic is low and the guests here were quiet and respectful. Thank you hotel vecriga - i hope to come to latvia again some day and if we do you will certainly see us again.

The hotel is in old town right in the heart of the action but on a quiet hidden side street. Rooms are nice and clean with an a la carte breakfast included. Our small group decided to have supper in the hotel restaurant "Palette" one night..probably the best culinary delight of our entire visit to the Baltic States!

This hotel is in a great location in the middle of the old town. Walking distance to all the restaurants, bars and sites of Riga.

The male Manager on duty when we arrived was really helpful. We did have an issue with the staff in the restaurant but the other female manager sorted out the issue for us. Basically we were promised a discounted breakfast but the waiter didnt want to hear about it. But it was all sorted out.

We chose this hotel for it's proximity to the Opera, which we were going to on a sunday afternoon, and the price, which was 45 euro for one night. We didn't know anything about it when we booked it, but we feel lucky to have found it! It's tucked away on a quiet corner but only about 2 minutes walk to anything you could need- nice restaurants, coffeeshops, and bars. The old city of Riga is so charming and this is a good example of that charm. The rooms are very clean, with all the modern amenities and the staff is extremely friendly, helpful, and open.

This hotel is very close to the centre of Riga and pretty much all is in walking distance. When we arrived we were not happy with our room, it was nice but not what we booked, so the manager put us straight away into a more premium room. The staff is ultra friendly and the food in the restaurant is 5 star! Great Hotel, I would recommend and definitely stay there again!

This was fine for one night stay. Good room & decent shower. Breakfast had good selection. Hotel should really passcode the TV or check station before room is let. I turned on tv to find hard core porn (not best quality!) confronting me. Parents with kids beware. Very adequate though & near centre.

I'm sorry to hear that... but we don't have Adult channels...(if we did, we would definitely made them High Quality).
I'll speak with Housekeeping, to be more patient with TVs, and put them always
