Three of us shared a triple room at the Monte Kristo for a couple of nights. While the location of the hotel is excellent and the staff very pleasant, there is not a lot else going for it. When we arrived some time after 4pm we were checked in and given keys for a room which turned out not to...

The hotel is not a 4* in my opinion, but even though I am still rating it pretty high. The hotel staff was very helpful (early check-in, breakfast to go as we checked out early etc.). Hotel is located in the border of the old town, so just a quick stroll and you are in the areas of most interest....

Nice small hotel with excellent location in quiet alley at old town. Everything is behind the corner. Small but comfortable room, clean bathroom with tub. Comfortable bed. Good basic breakfast, nothing fancy but does the job. Good multiple wifi-connection!

The room was really nice and unique. The decor was great, everything was really clean, and the reception desk was really helpful. It was a great location, and only a couple minute walk to most of the sights.

Location was perfect for us, arriving with bus it was just a couple hunred meters from bus station and in old town. Check-in was fast and in general the hotel was clear and nicely decorated. All rooms were equipped with minibar. Breakfast was ok. Good water pressure in shower, good free wi-fi and elevator to the second floor. A very...

This hotel is actually a bit better than average, and there are great aspects to the hotel that are actually excellent. Firstly, it's on the route for the airport bus ( No 22 is at your 1 o'clock when you vacate the airport about 100 yards and not the buses that are right outside the terminal ) and stops across...

Brought a group once again, and was impressed with the service, cleanliness and enjoyed our stay as always. Hotel has an excellent location close to bus and train stations. Right in the old town so easy to walk everywhere. Breakfast was quite nice, especially the toasted sandwiches and different pancakes offered. Coffee is terrible though and a cappucino is over...

Close to old town. Super familiar workers, nice room and soooo cheap. If I back to Riga I booked this hotel again. Restaurant is good (3,5☆), breakfast is normal and correct. Bed is good size for me (Im 196 cm). ;)

I'm new to TripAdvisor and thought I would review all the hotels / places I've visited in the past couple of years and the 1st one that came to mind was this Hotel. It was a very good stay in the middle of the town.

I stayed here for four nights in a tripple room. It was clean, cosy, warm and really quiet and the staff at reception were always extremely helpful and made us feel very welcome. The breakfast was average; it only costs a few euros though. The location of the hotel is excellent, right next to the station, main bus stops, central...
