Extremely convenient location for the old town and airport bus. We were surprised it was 4 star as the room was quite dark with very standard furniture and plain decor (we were expecting something a bit more art nouveau style). The bathroom was clean and water hot and good pressure, though quite small. The staff were friendly and helpful and... More

For a base to explore Riga for a few days we were pleased to have found the Garden Palace. Located right on the edge of Old Town, the impressive frontage includes a useful restaurant and separate tea room within the site. The ground floor reception and corridors were quite plushly decorated in a classic style, which didn't quite extend to... More

I spent only one night here in a single room (quite small, but OK for one night). The carpet on the floor had stain marks on it, but the rest of the room was OK. I had to unplug the fridge (minibar) because it was so noisy and located next to the bed, so I wouldn't be able to sleep.... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 5 nights in September and we were really pleased our visit. We paid about £200 between us for the stay, which we both agreed was great value. The hotel is quite old fashioned, but very clean and comfortable inside. There's free WiFi, you don't need to ask for the password, this comes in... More

For that money, the best simple hotel, You can find in Riga's Old Town. Good location. You can easily walk to most of the central places. Rooms are a little worn out but clean. Also the brekfast is very good.

The location of the hotel is simply ideal, in the epicenter of the historic city. The lobby and courtyard are well maintained and decorated nicely, but our room looked neglected. It was large, with massive ceilings, but the carpet was worn through and stained, the wall paper was scratched and the furniture was old and a bit bockety. However, it... More
