Old City Boutique Hotel
Ranked #26 of 110 Hotels in Riga
Reviewed 14 August 2012

The hotel is right in the middle of the old town, cobbled streets, squares and cafes all around and a few steps from the opera house.
The public areas of the hotel are very smart (bar and lounge), there is a computer to use as well as wifi in the rooms. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the bathroom I had was very nice with designer basin!
The breakfast buffet had a huge choice, lots of fresh fruit, different kinds of bread and rolls as well as toast and lots of hot dishes ( I didn't try them as the weather was so hot).
The service was friendly and efficient.
The restaurant serves meals in the evening and gave guests 10% discount and although it was good, it was rather pricey. Eating out in the town was a better bet.
I would recommend it wholeeartedly for a short stay.

Room Tip: I had a room in the old part of the hotel, there was no view as the window looked out on a wall! but...

I would really recommend Old City Boutique Hotel in Riga. Centrally located in the old town, right next to a chic shopping centre, and just a few blocks from one of the main squares. The service is great and we had a lovely breakfast every morning (not too early). The rooms are very clean and neat. The only reason I didn't put "excellent" instead of "very good" (just a small thing) - is that they have a cage with birds by the reception.. Nice birdsong, but I always feel sorry for caged animals.

A nice choice for stopover or making a stroll around VecRiga (Old City)! Great shops/restaurants/terraces/bars around.

Room could be more soundproof, as you wake up with those, going to breakfast at 7.00 a.m.

Room Tip: You can opt for so called "economy rooms", as they have real charm and with little excepti...

We were a group of four staying at the Old City Boutique Hotel for a long weekend. We booked a stay here due to its location, price and tripadvisor reviews.

You could not choose a better located hotel than this. It's in the middle of anywhere you want to go. The rooms look nice, clean and modern. The furniture looked ok, but lacked in quality. The bathroom was great and very clean.

What they need to fix:

Beds were not comfortable at all. I could feel the springs from the mattress when laying down. A thin mattress foam topper would solve this.

Service was almost non-existant. The staff had a grim look and were not welcoming at all. Why not smile for once and show appreciation to your guests?

Breakfast was also a joke. Bacon was hardly fried. Drink refreshments was everything but fresh.

Because of the issues mentioned above, we will not stay there again. Although if you are looking for a well-located hotel with clean rooms - sure

Good value, but with IKEA furniture all over I understand why the price is so low. Even the extra bed was cheap IKEA, not comfortable at all. However, cheap, clean, quite newly renovated and located central in Riga.

The staff at the hotel are all quite young and cannot handle anything other than giving you your room key. I must eat gluten free and provided cards to the hotel in both Latvian and Russian weeks before my stay. They failed so completely to provide me a safe breakfast, for which I paid, that I became desperately ill on my first day and remained so for my entire stay. No offer to reimburse the cost of breakfast was made. My impression is that this hotel only expects one-time travelers and not business professionals like me who return to places regularly. Furthermore, the hotel has an interior courtyard. The courtyard is also the smoking area. If you have an interior-facing room, as I did, and your air conditioning does not work, as mine did not, then you naturally open your window only to have your room instantly turned into a smoking room. The staff were completely disinterested in making any attempt to change my room or deal with my dietary needs. If you have a car, be advised that there is space for only three or four cars in front of the hotel. But fear not, there is a small parking lot around the corner. However, if you parked in front the hotel when you arrived, then leave with the car for business meetings, come back and find no space and therefore must use the parking lot, you -will be- charged double for parking. The hotel will automatically charge you for a full day just for putting your car in front of the hotel and the parking lot will charge you a full day again for using one of their slots reserved for the hotel. The hotel was totally apathetic to the needs of the guest.

Room Tip: If you must stay at this hotel, demand an exterior facing room for no extra cost if you are a non-sm...
