Hotel Monte Kristo
Ranked #50 of 112 Hotels in Riga
Reviewed 17 December 2012

My boyfriend booked me a surprise weekend away to Riga in December 2012 and it could not have been more perfect!
The Monte Kristo hotel is in the Old Town and a very short walk from the bus stop to the airport and central station. Being so close to the Old Town the hotel is very convenient for exploring the many delights that Riga has to offer.
The hotel was warm, cosy and friendly. Our room was lovely and spacious (we were in room 116 on the ground floor) and although it was a little noisy being on street level, it didn't hamper our experience at all. The room was very clean and the shower was extremely powerful and kept a constant temperature which is important to me!
Breakfast is served until 11am which suited us and served cheese, ham, eggs, bread, pancakes (sweet and savoury), cereal, porridge, yoghurt, tea, coffee etc. A great way to start a day of sightseeing.
Overall I was thoroughly impressed with the hotel and found it much cosier and welcoming than some of the chain hotesl I've stayed in - a little gem!

Central and well managed hotel. About 3 star standard but well priced. The service was friendly and breakfast is included. Room needed airing as it was a bit musty. Bathroom was adequate but not flash, beds comfortable. The breakfast was nothing to write home about but filled a hole and was open til 11 in morning which is good if you're a late riser. Location is excellent with quick access to bus to the airport.

Very cozy hotel located on the border of Riga Old Town. Two minutes walk to either central railway or bus station. The restaurant is inexpensive but dishes are tasty. The only minus of the stay is the lack of parking space next to the hotel. But you can leave your car at some of guarded parking areas, just hundred meters away.

A great hotel in a great location!!

This is the 3rd time I have stayed in this Hotel. Its location on the edge of the old town is a plus,

The check in painless, and straight forward. The receptionist even recongised me from my previous stays. The room was clean, tidy and fresh!!! a good size bed and it was a double not 2 singles pushed together.

Breakfast was first class and had an excellant choice of options, and has made a change a full jug of coffee! I managed to get 4 cups out of the jug.

The reception staff are friendly and always seem to know the places to go to! Also the best buys in the Christmas Market in the old town.

The hotels location is great for all methods of public transport with botht the bus and train station been only a 5 minute walk from the hotel. The bus stop for the bus 22 (airport shuttle) is only a " minute walk.

I would recommend the hotel to anyone and I am sure they would find the hotel an ideal base for exploring Riga

We stayed in this hotel for three nights. It's very close to train and bus station and it's also situated it downtown.
We were in two level room, but it wasn't very big it was without windows.
This hotel is good for people who aren't going to spend much time in the hotel.
Also there is big shopping centr near the hotel.

The Monte Kristo is a comfortable hotel on the edge of the Old Town. It's well situated and convenient for both the airport bus and the trams. Rooms were reasonable sized but well laid out with comfortable beds. I got an excellent night's sleep, possibly due to trying out the hideous local spirit, Black Balsam from the mini-bar first!

The bathroom is small but modern and the shower excellent. Breakfast is very good with an excellent selection of fish, meat, salads and pastries. Plenty to choose from all served in anatmospheric but low arched cellar.

One caution, if you're looking for BBC World it was the last channel on our TV one after the free to view hard core pornography! Not a hotel to leave the kids alone with the remote control!

Room Tip: Our room was at the back and quiet.
