My mother & I spent a wonderful week at the Hanza. The beautifully refurbished building was just 10 minutes from Old Riga - close enough for an easy walk through the Central Market but far enough away for peaceful, quiet evenings. Our room was spotless, fresh and had large windows to let in the morning sunshine. Air conditioning was excellent...

This is undoubtedly the best bargain I've ever paid for a hotel: 35 pounds per night from Expedia for a 2-night stay! As such, I was a little worried about how it may turn out. As it turned out, I did not need to worry! The room was fairly large, spotlessly clean, functional, and comfortable. The bathroom too was extremely...

Stayed at the Hanza Hotel for 4 nights at the end of June 08. The hotel is in the Moscow district of Riga which is about a 10 minute walk from the old town. We walked through the Central Market each day to reach the old town which is a beautiful walk as you can see the HUGE market in...

There's nothing wrong with this hotel, we just couldn't get enthusiastic about it. Location is quite good - about 10 minutes walk from the old town, the other side of the main market, and quite quiet. The desk staff were helpful. The room itself was a good size and spotlessly clean. The furthnishings were ok - somwhere between minimal and...

Dear Sir, Thank you very much for the comments on our hotel! We would like to inform that there is difference between taxi fares in Riga by different taxi companies. You can always see fare on taxi; meter always should be on and always ask for a receipt. Also time of day and possible traffic jams influence cost of taxi....

Stayed here to two nights in June and had a really nice stay. Arrived around 11.30pm, check in was really quick. We had a room on the sixth floor. Room was clean and tidy with two single beds pushed together. Big windows and decent blinds meant lots of fresh air and decent darkness. Bathroom was nice, although we had a...

Stayed for 5 nights at The Hanza, in the interesting but cold city of Riga. We couldn't fault the hotel. It is in a quiet, virtually traffic free square, a ten minute walk from the old town (or a short inexpensive taxi ride). Its a great location, central, but not too central. The hotel is in a newly renovated building,...

Fantastic location,clean rooms and probably the two most helpful receptionists ive ever encountered.We got a good deal when we booked on the hotel's own webite but believe me our stay was worth double what we paid.... When next in Riga i dont need to look any further than the Hanza!!!

Just back from a very cold Riga. Hotel Hanza - fantastic hotel for the price. Rooms are spotless and shower excellent with plenty of hot water. Hotel is not in the old town but don't let that put you off as it is only a 5 min walk - if you are lazy then there are plenty of taxi's available(don't...
