Being a frequent visitor to Riga I have had experience with a number of hotels in the old town. Garden Palace is one of those places that can be ranked "not bad" - meaning that there is nothing fundamentally wrong with the place yet there is room for improvement for sure. Location - as it has been said - is good. The hotel is situated right on the edge of old town. The building itself is beautiful and it has a nice courtyard where you can sit and enjoy a cup of coffee. Reception was friendly and polite - even though they had made a small mistake and claimed that my reservation is for a single night and not for two. This issue was solved quickly. I had reserved a junior suite - the room smelled of some strong chemicals - I assume that someone before me had violated the non smoking policy. As a proof of that I discovered some cigarette burn marks on the curtains. The room had a balcony - which was nice, excpect it was shared with the room next to me. If you want to use internet you have to pay for that. Even though the charge is small - few euroes per week, you can use it across many hotspots around the country - it was still a bit weird as free internet is something most hotels in Riga provide you with. So in conclusion - it was far from a nightmare but if possible I will look for alternatives for my next stay.
