Stayed at the Old City Boutique hotel for 4 nights on our trip to Riga. The staff were all very helpful and pleasant, especially with letting us store our luggage after checking out of the room. We were in a superior double room which was modern and clean, more than enough room for the 2 of us. Only niggles were... More

The location of the hotel is excellent. There is a big shopping mall and several good restaurants in the neighborhood. All the best sights are at the walking distance. We arrived at 10.30 am but they did not allow us to enter the room before 2 pm. The family suite is quite big and clean but we did not like... More

Nice place to stay in the city center. It was my second visit. Staff is very nice, they welcomed me back (!). The double room we had the first time was much nicer, single room was quite simple. There is no parking available directly at the hotel, but some places near by.

A good well located hotel in the heart of the enchanting Old City of Riga. All of the staff that I encountered were young, friendly, helpful and fluent in English and I enjoyed the stay. Despite some parts of the old city being a little bit of a bachelor party trap on Friday and Saturday nights, my room was remarkably... More

Old City Boutique Hotel is ideally located in Old Town. Our room, though small, was comfortable and charming, with its original medieval brick wall. Excellent breakfast. Helpful front desk staff. Highly recommend.

This hotel represents a good value but I didn't find that it merited the large number of glowing reviews. We found the place to be average at best. The hotel is convenient to a lot of sights/restaurants in Old Town. My wife and I didn't like staying in Old Town though -too many loud drunks at night. Our room had... More

A very special hotel, perfectly situated in the Old Town of Riga. A glamorous decor in the entrance area, making it look very expensive. But it was fairly cheap! A short walking distance to all the things youd want to see in the old town, but in a peaceful area. The only minus is.. we read in the little description... More
