“Great location, romantic design, not the biggest room”
Reviewed 10 March 2008

Location
Central, only 10 minutes to walk to streets like A. Caka (clothing + shoes), Briviera (clothing + shoes), and the old town where you find many good restaurants and also great shopping!

Hotel & rooms
The hotel is elegantly designed and the staff is very helpfull and all speak english. Our standard room was romantic with a great comfortable bed, but the windows were extremely small. We were never in your room, but we found it hard to organize our shopping as there was not so much space, and the desk in the room took a lot of what space was left. The big + is the comfy bathroom and the shower. We loved it! Also, the hotel was very clean.

Food & Drink
The menu at the restaurant is not big, but we tried two dishes and were delighted! The bar is helpful and you can order a lot of diffirent alcohol drinks and choose your location for sitting.
The breakfast however was good the first day (eggs, sausage and bacon), but the next few days we were fed up with it. I wanted to have some bread, but in Latvia they prefer their bread hard and dry so I could not have it. This is the only setback apart from the somewhat small rooms, but I still chose to give this hotel an excellent marking as I've never stayed in a better hotel!

Smoking
There are smoking rooms and you can smoke at the terrace (also with beer/wine/coffee ordered at the bar) till midnight.

Price
We ordered through Hotels.com and payed about 400$ for two persons, 4 nights and thought it was well worth it, but knowing there are several cheap and OK hotels in Riga we would not hae payed more. We were promised by Hotels.com there would be a balcony in each room, but unfortunately that was not the case. I recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a quiet, luxurious hotel with walking distance to the city!

Me and my Boyfriend stayed at this hotel for the weekend, we got it on a deal via Expidia but would have been more than happy with it if we paid full whack.

Its in such a central place, only about 5 mins stroll to the old town.

The bed was SO comfy and the shower was AMAZING!!!

Would highly recommend it.

This hotell is the best hotell i ever stayd at.
It has a old charm and luxurius feeling when you go in by the big wooden door, the staff whos working is speaking exellent english and has a super sens of service, the food was so delicious in the hotell and a the diningroom is marvalous.
So i would rekomend to stay att this hotell if you are going to a trip to Riga.

I stayed for two nights at this hotel and loved it. The building is beautifully restored - an old-world charm with modern comfortable rooms and bathrooms. Had a great night sleep in the bed! Bathrooms are spacious and some of them have a window. Great location - just a stone's throw from the city center.
Breakfast was nothing special but dinner in the restaurant was pretty good!
Only thing I missed was a swimming pool and spa - there is a small sauna but if there was a pool and spa, then it would be the perfect romantic getaway hotel. Loved it and loved Riga!

  • Liked — The location and the building's facade
  • Disliked — Bar was very small and dark.

Had a two night stay here with my husband in Jan 08 and I must admit of all the city hotels we have stayed in this has to be the best.The decor is beautiful with ornate ceiling mouldings in every room.Our bedroom was a standard room,but was huge,with the bathroom almost as big as some of the hotel rooms we have stayed in!
Breakfast was good with the usual selection of cold meats,cheeses,smoked fish etc as well as bacon, eggs and sausage.There were also lots of pastries to choose from.
Riga is a beautiful city and extremely clean,there was always someone picking up litter,even cigarette ends!!Be aware of people "ripping you off".On one occassion we were charged £6 for a tiny glass of mulled wine in the market bar/cafe!and also £19 lats for a taxi from the airport which should have cost no more than £9(and it was arranged by the hotel).
Apart from that, Riga is definatley worth a visit and so is the Europa Royale

PS Dont miss the visit to the Skyline Bar at the Reval Hotel ,its something you wont regret

We had a wonderful 3 nights at this luxurious hotel in the centre of Riga. The breakfast was really good with lots of choice and brilliant service. Even though the hotel was in the centre of the city, behind the big wooden doors, you felt you were in a country house hotel. We only had a standard double room but there was a seperate walk-in wardrobe and a large bathroom. If we visit again, we will certainly book this hotel.
