Location of the hotel is superb, 1 min from the Dome! I stayed here three nights with my boyfriend , our room was quite small but the bathroom was big in size. The place was extremely clean. It's a boutique hotel with theme in decoration. The theme of the bar was " hunting" and there are heads of embalmed deer...

Decor is very traditional, I prefer the more modern design look as per example Bergs, or Dome hotel in Riga. But is a question of taste and the decor is certainly stylish, with a clear theme and well done within it scope of design, plenty of attention to detail. The rooms are great, the equipment, furniture and linen is of...

My wife and I arrived at 10.45 at night, to be greeted with the words 'Welcome, Mr Thomas'. From that point on nothing was too much bother, with any requests (such as a lighter duvet) being addressed within two or three minutes. I had made serious errors in our restaurant reservations in Riga, but reception quickly provided the solutions, and...

When we arrived at the hotel and were welcomed by a service minded and friendly staff that carried the suitcases to our room. The room had a good size and were really nice! The room was well equipped, and in the bathroom we found everything I could imagine and more! In the room you get a complimentary bottle of water...

A beautiful hotel with fabulous service that is ruined by smoking permitted in the main bar and in rooms. The hotel stinks if cigarette smoke and towels, bathrobes and linens all have a faint smokiness despite being freshly laundered. This nay be a Leading Hotel but it's not one I would recommend if you are a non smoker. Latvia needs...

Dear guest, We thank you for choosing our hotel and for sharing your feedback. On behalf of the entire team, I would like to apologize for the inconveniences our smoking policy has caused. It is correct that Pils Bar, as one of our 3 food & beverage outlets, is an area where occasionally guests are allowed to have a cigarette....

The Grand Palace hotel is perhaps the best hotel I’ve stayed in in our Eastern Europe trip. Everything just seemed perfect --- service, staff, location, room, food. Upon entering the hotel, the lobby smelled of fresh lilium flowers, such a refreshing welcome. Check-in was very smooth, and staff was friendly, courteous and very professional. And I was so impressed with...

My wife and I stayed at this hotel to celebrate our anniversary in October. I called ahead and the hotel was nice enough to help me arrange a car to pick us up at the airport as well as sparkling wine in my room to surprise my wife. They even managed to surprise me when just after getting to our...

It's unique setting and staff are very helpful food was excellent, but if you are a non smoker you will be alarmed to know that this hotel allows smoking in the bar area that also serves as an area for eating snacks!!! We were offered another area curtained off of the bar but you could still smell smoke from here....

Having visited members of Leading Hotel of the World on many occasions, we were looking forward to enjoying the usual high standards expected. Unfortunately this was not to be as the deluxe room we had booked turned out to be on the top floor with a sloping mansard ceiling and roman blinds instead of curtains. The room was claustrophobic and...

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for your recent review. We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us. Allow me to answer to some of your comments: Our hotel is a historical building (UNESCO monument) and no changes could be made during renovation. When you mentioned to the reception that you were not happy...

The Grand Palace is in a prime old town location in Riga. It is a smallish very nice facility with a very efficient and friendly staff. The rooms are not particularly luxurious but are more than adequate. They would benefit by a coffee/hot water facility in the room, but the room sizes may make that difficult. The bar and restaurant...
