Monika Centrum Hotel
Ranked #9 of 111 Hotels in Riga
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 March 2012

The location was vey good: a short walk (10 minutes) from old town and close to the art nouveau area. In other words close enough to visit the old time, but at the same time be able to enjoy the quiet surroundings while staying in the hotel.

The service personnel were very helpful and willing to assist tourists.

The rooms that we had were very nice (especially the suite that was in the "tower".

I write this from the hotel, which is excellent.

The reception staff are helpful and speak excellent English, our standard front facing room is large and well appointed and most importantly the beds are extremely comfortable.
We haven't eaten in the restaurant (evening menu a little too fancy for us) apart from breakfast which was excellent - cooked or continental is available with a great variety. The drinks in the bar are reasonably priced. They did not sell Rose wine which surprised and dissapointed my wife!

The hotel is immaculately clean and not too far from the main city centre and old town to walk into.

I would recommend the Monika Centrum to any of my friends who come to Riga.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the park

Located very close to the centre of Riga - both city centre and Old Riga can be reached in few minutes walk. Hotel staff is always ready to help you. Stayed in various room types - all are comfortable, clean and spacious enough. Hotel is located on the corner of two streets with busy traffic, but it doesn't disturb since this is historical building with good soundproofing. Try it and you won't regret!

Room Tip: Take a suite #301 or #401 and you will definitely enjoy your stay.

This is a nice hotel with comfortable rooms and the most kind reception staff you could ever wish for. We stayed for two nights in the end of october. We had a non-smoking room with balcony. The bed was a twin bed but they kindly put one large extra mattress to cover the whole bed and like that making it a double bed as wished for. So nice :)
I felt a bit cold in the room at first but after meantioned it to the reception, we got an extra heater to keep us warm during sligtly cold weather, and it did.
Location is great, just a 10-15 minutes walk to the old town of Riga. Breakfast was good and I do not agree with some reviews that said that there is not enough choice of food. There is.

Extra appreciation for the FREE early check-in and late check-out we got. Unbelievable nice!
