Elegant landmark retreat combines historic charm, modern comforts
Grand and elegant, the architecture of the Hotel Riga is itself a tribute to the 19th century origins of the site, when the building was the prestigious Hotel Roma. After its WWII destruction, the Roma was replaced by the Hotel Riga, a fixture in the cultural life of the city and a symbol of its post-war renewal. Exuding historical charm and ambiance, the hotel overlooks the wealth of sightseeing, shopping and dining destinations in Old Town. Guests find elegant, modern guest rooms, a relaxing sauna and an excellent all-day restaurant.

Riga Rooms

Guest Rooms
The rooms are medium in size and are kept in good condition. The bathrooms are also in good condition. The style is perhaps what one would expect of a large, state-owned Soviet Bloc hotel, with plain colours and simple decor.

The rro and facilities were adequate, but nothing special. The staff was helpful and friendly, but the rooms are quite basic as are the general hotel facilities.

Not what I expected

The first room they gave us was on the last floor, freezing cold and did not heat up in 3 hours while we were taking a walk outside, so we asked for another, which was better. The personal hygiene items smelled awful, especially the soap. The bedsheets were clean but we found hairs in the bathtub. The staff was acting like we were constantly disturbing them and they had better things to do. Smiling was not an option. The elevator went a bit crazy and blocked between floors for half a minute, only several hours after it had been out of use for checking. I had altogether very different expectations from a 4-stasr hotel in the center of such a beautiful city. There are some good points though: Very convenient location, and breakfast was great.

Not what I expected

The hotel is in the city center, location is great. Airport bus stops in front. I guess this a historic hotel, the rooms are big but very tacky modern look. Bathroom is big compared to most EU hotels. Staff was a little rude, did not let me check it 15 min. early? Breakfast was standard. Rooms do not have AC so you must keep the window open and let's in the city noise...I think for the same price you can find another city center hotel.

Hotel is in the perfect location. Just in the middle of everything. Rooms are older and in need of renovation, but still fine.
