“Very noisy at night”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

We stayed here three nights on the fourth floor. The noise kept us up very late every night and since there is no air conditioning we had to leave the windows open or suffocate from the heat. The hotel room was very basic as was the breakfast, not bad though. The bathroom is very basic as well. Try to get a room on the side opposite the street, these rooms are available for two people or less.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the back, away from the street!

Dear Sarmis212,

thank you very mych for your feedback regarding your stay!

Due to our wonderful location it is possible that it could get noisy, but instead all tourist attractions are located few steps from hotel. Unfortunately due to very central location in the middle of the old town, there might be people having parties on the street or in the cafes.

Otherwise, we hope that you had a great time in Riga!

Best regards,
Anita Kanenberga
Hotel Manager

The location of the hotel was excellent - in the centre of the Old Town. We travelled by car, so we needed parking space. Hotels parking lot is not near the hotel, so I recommend finding out how to get there beforehand, because we looked for the parking lot for more than 1 hour (a lot of one way streets in the Old Town made it pretty difficult). The room was pretty spacious and tidy. Breakfast wasn't my favourite, but it was good enough. Helpful staff.

Room Tip: When travellin with a car, then find out how to get to the parking lot beforehand

I spent 5 nights at the Kolonna and the location in the old town was superb, as well as being an easy walk to the bus and train station. The staff were friendly and the room clean, tidy, and serviced reularly. The ample breakfast provided catered for all tastes.There is also as play area for kids just off the breakfast dining area, The Kolonna's lis located close to many of the attractions within the city,as well as the cheapest best value beer garden that is virtually just outside the front door.

Rooms have nice décor and ours was light and spacious. beds were a little on the hard side but adequate for a few nights. The location is excellent to take in all the sites on foot and staff were friendly and helpful I would definitely recommend

Room Tip: choose room at back for less noise

We stayed five nights in Hotel Kolonna and the best thing was it's location. Our room was rather small, but had everything we needed. We were very happy there is air condition, since we were on the sixth floor right under the roof and this time it was very hot.

Our room was very quiet even if the hotel is right in the city center.

Room Tip: Rooms on the sixth floor have angled roofs. It can be a problem if you are tall.

You probably can not find a hotel better situated than the Kolona. It is right in the heart of Old Town Riga. Priced good, friendly helpful staff and clean rooms. Big, big rooms, big bathrooms. BUT on the down side they can do better with the mattresses. Breakfast is your normal no effort European type, bread, cheese, egg, etc. Also remember you are on a busy street in Old Town, with 4 pubs within 50 meters of each other and it can become quite noisy.So if you want quiet at night (especially in summertime) this is not the hotel for you. Will I stay here again: for sure!!

Room Tip: The higher the floor, the less noise you will have.

The location of this hotel is outstanding - in the middle of the old city with walking distance to "everything". The staff is polite and very helpful. We were upgraded to a room on the top floor, with a lot of space. On the down side the comfort of the beds are rather poor, and the hotel could use some upgrade.
