Felt like staying in a old castle. We even did hotel dinner, nice friendly staff and good food. The hotel has walking distance to the places you need to see. Good place if you plan a party in Riga, looks like you can rent a ballroom and with music and food.

First, and foremost, there is no smoking area within the premises, you are advised to go outside to have a smoke in -20 C condition. Well, OK, non-smoking policy, i get it.
Second, is if you are travelling on your own, and you are used to the Radisson/Carlton style/type of hotels, then you will find yourself really "lost" in those huge rooms, where cealing is ca 5m or even more. At least rooms on the 2nd floor were huge, enormous.
Before unpacking - check, that shower provides both hot and cold water. Mine had hot water only - but, without any arguments this was fixed on the second day of my stay.
Really strange inner architecture, a person could get lost in the corridors.
But the location of this hotel is great, is in the center of Riga, 5 minutes walk before the Old Town.
No gym/swimming pool, but if they were avaliable, which is kind of sad, especially if you are on your leisure trip (i had business, there was really no difference that one time).

Room Tip: If you love huge rooms go to the ones on the 2nd and 3d floor, which face the main street (but those...

Beautiful hotel and an excellent location. Would definitely visit again! On our first night there was a disturbance in our room due to loud music coming from somewhere. We called reception and they upgraded us to a suite room, which was amazing, as was the first room.

Breakfast was varied and the staff were extremely friendly. It is a 10 minute walk into the heart of the old town.
Thanks for w onderful stay,

Great location - walking distance to the old town, markeds and new shopping malls. Nice rooms, good breakfast and good service from the staff.

I spent three nights at the Europa Royale Riga in a beautiful Historic Room. My colleagues stayed in a deluxe room which was also very comfortable. The modern bathrooms are great. The hotel was warm (especially important when the outside temperature is -25 degrees Celsius), the beds comfortable and the facilities were as described. The hotel is perfectly located and it is worth a short stroll across the park to the outstanding (and beautifully decorated) Bibliotek Restaurant or around the block to the excellent Bergs Restaurant in a beautiful small charming square.
The hotel also has a Casino where the staff were quite charming when engaged and we enjoyed having a fliutter for a few hours. There is also a Karaoke Bar which can be a laugh. The Bar on the first floor is comfortable but lacks atmosphere - lighting the big open fireplace would have been a welcome touch. Overall the Europa Riga is a good option, especially for the price which was very reasonable. The free Wi-Fi was good quality and an added bonus.

Room Tip: Deluxe or Historical Room. Standard rooms are small.

The hotel building is a former mansion so the rooms are very spacious with unusually high ceilings. Quite cozy although a bit chilly in the winter (but must feel good when it is hot outside). The great thing about the bathroom is the heated floor (again, we appreciated it particularly because of the cold weather). Free wi-fi is another useful thing.

Breakfast was wonderful (smoked salmon, pineapples, strawberries, pancakes, delicious pastry) and it was great to have it in a 19th-century interior.

The hotel is not exactly in the Old Town but a walk there takes a mere 7 minutes or so and generally most attractions are within walking distance
