The hotel it's very good. Clean and nice. The staff it's very helpful and likeable.
Just a note, the hotel it's a little bit far from old town, twenty minutes to walk (but with only 5 lats you can take a taxi).
I'd come back to Hanza Hotel.

I travelled with a friend and got a twin room, B&B, at Hanza Hotel thanks to Expedia. In addition to a great offer (almost as cheap as hostels) we got breakfast and found a perfect value for money.
No fancy services or furniture but very clean and in order hotel, it seems recently renovated. Complete breakfast buffet. 20 min by bus to airport, 5 min walk to bus and train station/zeppelin market, 2-3 more min walk to center.
The hotel is slightly isolated as in a very quiet street but walking back to the hotel at night is not scary as streets are well lighted and the market to be crossed is guarded.
Go for it, for sure a great deal in a great city waking up in EU!

Stayed: December 2008

Whilst the walk to the 'actual' city centre is only 7 minutes away, this hotel is situated in the questionable part of town. In fact the receptionist at the hotel discouraged us from walking outside after dark. And being in Riga in December, after dark meant 3:30pm.

Now for some good news:
- the staff: excellent
- the room: clean, a little small but overall above average
- the bathroom: excellent
- the restaurant: average

Other good things about the hotel:
- free internet
- cheap airport tranfers

What's the worst thing that could happens to a smoke-enemy? Yes... staying in a smoking room (n. 204) with a terrible stink of cigarettes in the air, in the bed and towels, everywhere. No chance to change the room 'cause the hotel was full so we had to stay there and suffer a lot.
The room was good, large enough with modern furnitures and bathroom. The shower has been another problem: water temperature was continuosly changing hot-cold-hot and was impossible to set the right temperature!
Location isn't in the heart of the downtown but the walking to reach it wasn't a problem: 15 minutes are enough and there's the chance to visit the central market, with plenty of goods.
A positive note came from the breakfast which was served in the pub: a wide range of fresh food and drinks, enough to reach the evening.

I stayed in room 305 from 1 - 5 December 2008. The room was clean and well equipped with a small desk, a couple of chairs, adequate storage and cable TV - although not many English language channels. The bathroom was modern with shower, hairdryer and toiletries. The bed itself was comfortable but it appeared that the sheets were too small as they couldn't be tucked in so tended to move around and get crumpled up. Also I would have liked larger towels in the bathroom- but then again maybe I should get smaller!! A useful addition would be tea/coffee making facilities. I paid 134 Lats for my 4 night stay.
I made my reservation directly with the hotel by e-mail and this was dealt with very efficiently.
It was midnight when I arrived at the hotel but I was warmly greeted and the check-in procedure was quick and efficient. The front desk staff spoke excellent English and were very helpful with tourist information.
Breakfast was served in the cosy basement restaurant. It was plentiful with a good variety of cereals, bread, cheese, cold meats, sausages, eggs, bacon, fruits, yoghurt etc. The orange juice however was not fresh but tasted more like an orange flavoured powder mixed with water. Other than breakfast I didn't eat in the hotel so cannot comment on other meals.
The hotel is a 10 - 15 minute stroll from the old town, en route you pass Stockmann Department store, a shopping centre and the Central Market all useful for stocking up on drinks and snacks. Other reviewers have mentioned that the area around the market is a bit intimidating at night, whilst I agree that it doesn't look particularly nice, it is a busy area and there is usually a lot of activity day and night so it is unlikely that you would be walking through this area alone. I as an older lone traveller found it perfectly safe, just keep your wits about you. The stop for the bus to the airport is also located in this area.
Overall a welcoming, value for money hotel in a central location which I would be more than happy to stay in again.
