“A nice place to stay!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

Beautiful neighborhood, friendly staff, good breakfast etc. Hotel is just little bit far from the old town - approximately 15-20 min walk. For a business trip (as well as active vacation) it is a good choice!

We stayed at this hotel because we wanted to experience both the Old Town and Art Nouveau districts of Riga. Initially we thought we had made a big mistake coming from the Old City Boutique Hotel when we were shown to our Junior Suite at the Monika. Two rooms and good bathroom but very dark and gloomy, overlooking the central shaft of the hotel so no view or natural light. The gloom became even worse when, during the night, we realised that a horrible smell of sewage was permeating the bathroom! The next morning we complained (nicely) and asked for a change of room and were given a magnificent huge room with a balcony overlooking the Elisabetes Avenue and park which was clearly an 'upgrade'. From that point on we really enjoyed our stay and the beautiful area of art nouveau buildings where all the magnificent embassies are located. Others have mentioned the walking distance from the old city but there are excellent cheap public transport links nearby, both buses and the number 6 tram. The Tourist Information Office in the Old City will give you maps and sell you tickets. (Also plenty of good information about transport, in English, online). This is an interesting hotel, part of a small chain it seems, and is used for local business conferences. The service and standards perhaps not quite up to western Europe expectations but why are we travelling if we want everything to be the same wherever we go? Found it quite difficult to rate this one given our unfortunate start but feel our whole stay warranted a 'very good'.

Room Tip: Avoid those without an outside view

Located in a beautiful neighbourhood, but bit far away from center. The room was nice and quiet. Just some problems with my door key every day; had to run to reception many times to activate it again. Helpfull staff.

Excellent hotel in Riga.The room was big &spotlessly clean. There was a great choice of food for breakfast.
No problems from check in to check out.
It is about 20 minutes walk to city centre
We would stay here again & it was great value.

Stayed there for three nights including new years eve, and was very happy about it. Big, clean rooms, fast free wi-fi and friendly and serviceminded people all over. The hotel arranged airport transfer both ways, that was really great. Nice breakfast buffet. 15 min walk to the old city, a bit long when its cold. Will stay there again at my next visit!

Room Tip: I just sent the hotel an email the day before with my flight nr, and they picked us up at the airpor...

Stayed for 3 nights in October 2013. Hotel in nice area, bit like Kensington with all the embassies local. Room was a good size, bar quite but ok for a night cap. Only down side would be it is a little walk from town centre alongside a park. Whilst I never felt unsafe, always got a taxi back late at night (about a fiver) rather than take the chance of walking by a park late at night. Riga itself is really nice and well worth a visit. Preferred Vilnius, but much nicer than Tallinn.

Stayed October 2013, travelled solo

Last time I came to this hotel was long ago. It was all new and almost empty by the time. But this time I had hard time booking it, though it was not high season -- so, my advise is making reservation well in advance. It is located on 15 minutes pleasent walk from the Riga old town, by the edge of a big century old park. Breakfast is generous, room clean, staff nice and co-operative. If I happen in Riga again, would not shop for another place to stay.
