Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 August 2014 via mobile

A great hotel for a base to explore Riga, and a beautiful building in its own right. Lovely clean rooms, very comfy beds, excellent shower. Restaurant in basement serves very good food (although the service is a bit slow). Definitely recommend!

Came here as part of a group on cycling holiday. Stayed for 2 nights. Hotel is in great location, short walk (about 1km) to old town. Very friendly welcome & all staff very helpful. Rooms are large & very nice. Free wifi throughout hotel. If I came back to Riga I would not hesitate to stay again. Can't comment on price as was booked as part of a package

Nice hotel but lacks welcoming feel and needs updating in areas. Lovely room we had a suite on the 3rd floor, fairly. Noises at night and air con not that cold. Bad smell from an open drain vent bathroom a couple of times. Breakfast fine not easy to access the buffet table. Reception staff helpful but not over friendly , didn't even get asked if we had enjoyed our stay and room ok? Came back one eve late for a night cap, lounge all in darkness and no one about, it was only 11:30 pm! Nice hotel but would stay closer to the centre next time

The Monika Centrum Hotel had many lovely aspects, however it also had enough flaws that I would say it doesn't deserve a four star rating. Ill begin with the flaws:
The rooms are outdated, so the TV's are old, the carpets are stained, and the showers are filled with mildew (you can smell it throughout the rooms). The hallways wreak of cigarette smoke, the fridges in the room DO NOT keep the food cold, and the fitness center is pathetic. These were my main concerns, but the hotel had its benefits: The location was great, not too close to the bustling areas of Old Town, but close enough to walk in 15 minutes. The breakfast was lovely, although you may have to alert the staff members if a food has run out, because they rarely check themselves. The hotel is gorgeous from the outside, and the patio out front has nice views of the park and is great for a relaxing afternoon. My favorite part was the staff at the check-in desk. All of them spoke English well and were very willing to help us with whatever we needed. They were very honest about their preferences regarding where to visit in Riga, and truly seemed to care.

Room Tip: Get a room with a exterior view. Though the street is sometimes busy, the windows are very soundproo...

An unpretentious hotel in a remarkably good location : just off the old town but a very pleasant walk through the delightful city parks to the centre. Also plenty of inexpensive parking space right next to the hotel, a major plus in a city like Riga. Staff were pleasant and helpful, room was clean and not noisy, breakfast was plentiful. Good restaurants and coffee shops nearby. Overall, good value for reasonable money.

Nice location in Riga - you can walk to most attractions. Staff friendly and no problems at all. Decent cleaning but lacks the details, same with aircondition which put in a symbolic effort to cool the room. You get what you pay for and that is okay.

Room Tip: Room 306 is pretty good ;-)

This is a great hotel for a visit to Riga. Very clean, quiet and friendly, we found large rooms with clean bathrooms a sleight, the breakfast is plentiful and typical European. We asked for an extra bed for our daughter and who provided with a large spacious triple room. Can't fault the service. It's only a 10min walk to the old town and close to wonderful gardens. Would defiantly recommend this hotel.
