“My first visit to Riga”
Reviewed 28 January 2012

My partners in Moscow invited me visit new branch of their company in Riga, Latvia. They booked for me the hotel “Hanza”. It was a stylish 3-star hotel, beautifully restored historic building, just several minutes walk from Old Riga. I lived in elegant room with free Wi-Fi and flat-screen TV and satellite channels. My room was bright and equipped with a working area and a spacious bathroom with hairdryer, and it had overlook the Church of Jesus – great view. Varied breakfast was served daily "buffet", prepared with fresh products. In Hanza Pub I had a meeting with my relatives from Riga, we tasted local specializes and fish dishes. Front desk staff was working around the clock and can arrange car rental services, so we could enjoy night Riga by car. Free parking was available nearby. So during my trip I managed made good deal and had warm meeting with my relatives.

Hanza Hotel is absolutely fantastic! All the staff was very friendly and keen to assist. Service was excellent as were the quality of the rooms and location. Also wish to recommend Alibi restaurant near the hotel where we tasted superb grill and wine.

Very nice hotel, good quality at an affordable price. Convenient location: 5-7 minutes from the station, 10 minutes walk to old town. The rooms are cozy, heating systems can be adjusted at will, clean every day, shopping centers, exchangers, market close - on the way to the center, a restaurant in the evenings, live music - on the weekends. In general, all very much.

This hotel was great. I was upgraded to a suite because there was an issue on the first night with capacity. The room was huge, very clean and very well furnished. There was a good breakfast. Very nice staff. The hotel is about a 10 minute walk from the central area in Riga which probably makes the hotel quite quiet as the centre can be quite busy. Definitely recommended.

We spent 4 nights in this hotel. Hanza is situated close to the centre of Riga, but not exactly in the heart of old town - you need 10 minutes walk to reach main attractiones. Anyway, it's close to railway and coach station which is very useful. Check in was smooth. Rooms are very modern (especially nice, stylish bathroom) and clean. Quite wide selection of food on breaksfast.

Just spent 4 nights at Hanza Hotel over New Year, and everything to do with our booking ran smoothly including taxi transfers to and from the airport. The hotel was a great base for exploring Riga. We went everywhere on food, no need to use public transport or taxis when there. A bit of a walk over into the old town, but not too far. The room was large, clean and warm and the bathroom was lovely. A comfy chair & tea/coffee in the room would have been a nice extra. Breakfasts were fantastic, a big choice of lots of different things - savoury and sweet, and we certainly didn't need lunch after the breakfasts! The pub/restaurant was great too - the food was very reasonably priced and lovely, and the atmosphere very relaxing and comfortable. Having spent the day time exploring Riga we were very happy to spend a couple of evenings relaxing the the pub. Spent New Year's Eve at Freedom Square and enjoyed the atmosphere and fireworks, and the complimentary bottle of champagne in the room was a lovely surprise.

Our room was modern, large and clean. Breakfast was good. All in all, great value for money. The only thing to complain about was the lack of curtains. The stylish wooden shutters block only some of the light coming from the windows. For someone who needs darkness to sleep well this will be a major issue.

The hotel is within reasonable walking distance from the Central Market and airport bus stop: took us less than 10 minutes to walk there. For the price and quality, I'd definitely be ready to stay at Hansa again, even though it is a short walk away from the heart of the tourist area.
