Red Roofs Hotel
Ranked #102 of 111 Hotels in Riga
Reviewed 23 January 2012

I have just returned from a 3 night stay at Red Roofs and it was OK. I would have to say that it was nothing particularily special but nothing to complain about, either. Located right in the Old Town, opposite St Johns Church, it is the ideal location for exploring the city. The 2 girls I dealt with were pleasant and spoke good English and the reception was manned 24hrs a day. My room was small - about 2 metres by 2 metres, with just a bed, wardrobe, small table and small sofa but it was warm and clean. The breakfast wasn't great, 2 choices of cereal, 2 cold meats, some cheese and yoghurt, with coffee from the machine in reception and some bread. As a cheap option - 16 Lats per night - it was fine and if I visit Riga again, then I would bear this place in mind.

We had a wonderful time in Red Roofs Hotel - stayed for our honeymoon. The staff was amazing nothing was to much trouble! Clean and comfortable rooms. Warmly recommend. Also we wish to recommend family restaurant Alibi near the hotel. It’s very tasty grilled dishes in Latvian traditional style and romantic atmosphere. We tried grilled venison with peas puree and red wine sauce. It was fantastic taste.

I stayed here in a single room with shared bathroom for just one night.

The bathroom was a really bathroom, not a dorm bath. Very clean. Felt like I was staying in a room in someone's country manor instead of a hostel, though I was paying hostel prices.

Incredibly cute room. Possibly the cutest room I've ever stayed in. Modern medieval? I think that the bed may have been shorter than a normal-length bed (just like they are when you pay money to see those really old mansions and palaces and you wonder whether people were just way shorter a long time ago). Luckily, I'm only 5'1" so a shorter bed didn't bother me at all.

Location was excellent. Right in old town, but not next to a thumping night club.

My only quibble was that internet wasn't very strong in the rooms upstairs; only in the lobby downstairs. The receptionist told me that their internet guru was on holiday for 3 weeks, so maybe that's not a typical problem.

All in all, a very satisfying short stay.

I stayed at Red Roofs Hotel in Riga with my wife during our trip to Baltic countries. We booked one double room through booking.com, but when we arrived to Riga all the doubles were occupied. We were given an apartment instead. I want to stress that this decision was automatic and not forced by us. We appreciated our apartment. You have to take into account that this is rather a budget place and even apartment, although very nice, was kind of budget (but spacious).
The location is fantastic - you are literally in the middle of action, but on a very quiet street. If you don't want to overpay and still want to stay in Riga's Old Town, it's a good choice.

We were very happy with the location of the hotel as it is right in the city centre. One evening we ate at the restaurant next door where guests receive a 10% discount, which we very much enjoyed. We did not have breakfast at the hotel, but there is a supermarket in the shopping centre near by which was brilliant and very reasonable. Our ensuite room was quite small and not a lot of headroom (the ceiling was slanted). It was also very noisy at night as there was a bar underneath our window. Staff were very friendly and the reception was open 24 hours a day.

We stayed there 5 days during my trip to Latvia and Estonia. 3 of them I spent in the two room suite which was very affordable for the size (a bedroom and a guest room each 30m2, so larger than my flat:)) and location. The other 2 nights this room was not available so I moved to a much smaller room which was still big enaugh for what we needed Rooms were clean and comfortable, staff was polite and helpful explaining the routes and sightseeing places. Breakfast was very basic but OK for me. The only problem was the Wi Fi that didn't function some days. As a hotel guest I also received a 10% discount in the neighbouring restaurants "Trattoria del Popolo" and "Olive Oil Trading" Both are italian places, affordable prices but great food, I think by best found during my trip. So thanks to this hotel we had a nice stay in Riga

The hotel is very good located right in the center of Riga. Staff were very and friendly. The room was very basic but clean. Free Wi-fi. Downstairs next door is a good Italian restaurant. I think this hostel is teh best choice for it's price.
