Superb service at the bar, very good and varied breakfast, big rooms, cleans rooms, what else do you wish.... If I go back on hotel to Riga, I certainly take back Europa Royale!!! Also location next to Vermanpark is great. And the old city is only a few 100 meters away.

I spent 2 nights in this hotel for a business trip. My room was very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was good, too. The staff at the reception was highly professional. Check-in and check-out was super quick. The location is fantastic. I went out for dinner after work and found that the old town is just 5-10 min away. The walk itself is quite beautiful. Would definitely stay here again

A very nice hotel experience close to Riga Center.
Plus for nice decor and atmosphere, nice rooms and friendly staff.
I'd definitively come here again.

Central location, this may be the only positive thing with this Hotel. rooms can be also considered as abig one. Be ready for breakfast experience, as place arranged for that is not well prepared to handel the quests. So, be ready for a queue for tea or coffee. It happened that even tabels were not enough for all the quests coming in the morning. So, average Hotel, for one night stay, not more.

Our review is similar to chopsgma's. The room was huge, even had a small sitting room attached, with many windows overlooking the park.Big terrycloth robes and slippers were provided and the hot water was plentiful. We were on a 2 week tour of the Baltics and the Europa was hands down the best hotel with the best breakfast buffet. And, it's close to Old Town in one direction and the best of Art Nouveau buildings in another. Wished we could have stayed longer.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the park.

I had read some poor reviews on tripadvisor about this hotel, but it had parking, which was one of our main concerns, so that's where we went, a bit apprehensively. Much to my surprise, it was quite fine. The room was spacious and comfortable, it had both hot and cold water (which somebody had complained about) and overlooked a beautiful park. Service was fine and the restaurant excellent. My only complaint was that the key cards didn't always work, especially in the elevator, but other than that, I would have no qualms about staying here on our next trip to Riga. Location was a bit far from the old town, but certainly walkable.

Room Tip: We were on the third floor and room was perfect.

The hotel may boast 4 stars, but I wouldn't give our room even one star. It is dark and depressing with a tiny window. To see the sky you have to lean out of the window. The colours are dark and dingy. But worst of all, the water pressure is so poor we cannot take a proper shower. We are currently on a tour of the baltics and this is our fourth hotel on the trip. It is by far the most disappointing. All the negative comments contained in other reviews we would agree with. Even the breakfast buffet, which is extensive, contains much which is inedible. Furthermore, we have to wait for clean dishes. They don't seem to have enough chinaware and cutlery. There is never a greeting from the surly staff when entering reception. Our room is in the "new wing". There are wooden rafters bursting through the room from floor to ceiling. I am given to understand that the best rooms are in the older part of the building. Therefore, this hotel is essentially both four star and one star - it depends which room you have. This explains why the reviews are so mixed. We cannot wait to leave this place.

Room Tip: Insist on being accommodated in the old part of the hotel. Look at the room before you agree to take...
