“Excellent stay once again”
Reviewed 28 March 2011

Once again my group had a most pleasant stay at the Monte Kristo. The hotel has an unbeatable location in the Old Town (also very close to the bus station). The rooms are clean and well maintained, and all have satellite tv and stereo systems with CD players. It is a unique building with various room sizes, with some rooms are bigger than others, however all are kept spotless. The breakfast was quite good, with an excellent variety of hot dishes. We found it to be good value and worth the cost. The staff were very professional and courteous and more than willing to lend a helping hand when needed. I would highly recommend the Monte Kristo to anyone staying in Riga.

This is now my third experience at the Monte Kristo and each one has been beyond outstanding! The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The location central to everything. The price is competitive but based on value definately worth every dollar you pay. The best feature might just be the staff. They are supportive, curteous, friendly, and very helpful in making your trip to Riga exceptional. The restaurant is reasonably priced and the food fantastic. Easily I would recommend this place to anyone i know.

Stayed at the monte kristo twice now and going again in april. The hotel itself is comfortable in a perfect location to old/new riga and train station and market. me and my girlfriend (who is half Latvian) use this hotel always when visiting. For £17 a night inc breakfast, plus its perfect location who wouldnt. The people who work there are very Latvian and dont smile much haha, dont take it personal, its a latvian thing lol! Be sure to have a pint of latvian beer in the bar oposite, named the oldest pub in latvia. Cheap beer and cosy, plus the bar man is a good laugh. One thing you might find a little strange about the hotel is the 24 hour free porn channel in the rooms and the supply of condoms in the room which are kept in the same basket as the chocolate, nuts and crisps. Very quirky and different place, but hey............so what!

Only paid £25 a night for my stay at the end of Nov 2010. Very cold this weekend but the hotel was very cosy. Fantastic location , it can be seen from the airport bus stop and only minutes to anywhere in the Old town and the Moscow district. Nice quite and clean room , not massive but fine for me , Mini bar and free tea and coffee , tv etc. Well decorated hotel with it's own charm .

Hot and cold buffet breakfast was very good , believe me I've had far worst in much more expensive hotels. Staff were very helpful. Didn't try the restaurant but it has an outside section that would be great in the summer.

A great budget hotel. I paid less than $50 including breakfast buffet and wireless Internet. The only downside: my window didn't really go anywhere. I suspect it probably looked to a small courtyard.

The room was very clean, bed fantastic (and large by European standards), service friendly, location good. The hotel and rooms also look very nice. Lots of dark wood with a "naval" theme.

More about location: The hotel is less than a five minute walk from the city centre and less than a five minute walk from the railway station and the intercity bus terminal. If you want to get to the city centre, just walk right when go exit the hotel and follow the street. If you want to get to the stations, just walk past the hotel restaurant, then cross the big street (13. janvāra iela) and then pass underneath one of the railway bridges.

I was also very pleased with the breakfast buffet. It's (very) small but I enjoyed it a lot. Especially the pancakes and the müsli... plus a good selection of fruit. I also had lunch at the hotel restaurant once (due to lack of time before I had to catch my bus) which was excellent too. You also have to try the fried ice cream dessert. It's amazing. The price was more than fair too.

Overall, a great budget hotel, and very quiet too.
