An excellent hotel located near enough to the center to allow you to walk in but off the beaten track so you don't have to listen to the passing traffic and drunks.

Clean, modern rooms and the beds are very, very comfy.

Friendly, helpful staff who speak English so much better than I could ever speak Latvian.

From start to finish this is an excellent hotel. Breakfast has everything a hungry traveler would want to fill up before exploring this amazing city. The Breakfast room doubles as the hotels restaurant in the evening where the food is excellent. I would strongly recommend the fish and chips. Beer is good and not too expensive compared to some of the places in Riga.

My one and only criticism would be that we booked via Experian as a smoking room. Unfortunately, like the UK, there's no smoking indoors so we had to go outside. This did give us the opportunity to meet the colourful locals.

Room Tip: Request a room that look out on to the church.

Clean room and bathroom, new furnishing and very modern bathroom. The bathroom had plenty of space. Shower was great with roomy shower-stall.

Breakfast was good: pancakes, porridge, cereals, fruit, bread, eggs, sausage, etc. There were also many waiters so nothing was finish and tables were clean.

Service by reception was good. We needed to print out one document and did it for us free of charge. Only negative thing was that we had wall-to-wall carpet in out room.

Excellent breakfast, good neighbourhood. Walking distance to old town and shopping center. Good value for money. Gym would be good addition for longer stays. Public transport isnt right around the corner but near enough.

We went to Riga for my hen do on the 15th March 3 nights.

on arrival the staff were very friendly and we were pleasently suprised by the hotel. Some of our rooms were a lot smaller than the others. But our room was huge with a nice view of the chapel.

The rooms were very clean and had all the ameneties you would want.

The wifi was a bit intermitent but this wasnt a problem !

The bar and resturaunt was very nice to the breakfast was good and the drinks were resonably priced.

The hotel was a walk out of the city centre but about 5-10 minutes to walk into the old town.

Overall would strongly reccomend this hotel especialy for the price. We had no trouble at all in Riga and found everyone to be friendly and we really enjoyed our stay !

Hi I had a great few days in Riga simply wandering around on my own and soaking up the city and the Hanza Hotel was a great place to come back to. The staff were amazingly friendly and helpful and the room was clean, quiet and comfortable. The place looks like it has just been completely refurbished and the price was very good for the quality of the room and service. The one downside is that the pub/restaurant attached could do with more than a single member of staff as things can take a while. This however is a niggle compared to a great experience. I am planning on returning to Riga with friends later this year and will definitely be staying here again.

Recently renovated. Very nice rooms with good-sized bath. Very comfortable and clean.
Short walk to Old Town past train and bus stations. Delightful Old Town.
Good breakfast, good dinner menu.
Would stay again and recommend.
