“Charming hotel in the heart of Riga”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2012

Hotel Justus is a fairly small hotel right in the heart of Riga. We stayed at a superior room with a king size bed on the top floor for 4 nights just before midsummer in June 2012.

Rooms are very charming and comfortable - the room we had has been the biggest hotel room we've had anywhere in Europe! Room we had was facing the street so occasionally you could hear some noise but if you keep your window shut it really didn't bother us at all - even during fri-sat night.

Hotel offers a breakfast which is rather nice but not all that special. If you want something better than the average bacon and eggs please try a nice little cafeteria around the corner. Pastries and cakes and bread is absolutely incredible in this town!

Staff is nice and helpful and the room was kept clean and towels changed daily. Hotel is full of charming little details. Make sure to take a ride in the elevator and stop at every floor to see what kinda artwork they have! ;)

Location is perfect. You can walk everywhere in the Old Town and there's lots of restaurants and pubs and little shops everywhere. Market Halls and the newer city center are also pretty close so if you enjoy walking you don't need public transportation at all.

Room Tip: If you want space and want to invest in a superior room ask for the furthest room (from the elevator...

This hotel is located in the heart of Old Town. The street location is 5 minutes walking to all the sites in the Old Town. The street the hotel is located has several top rated restaurants.

The hotel is clean and modern with a rustic theme. The room is well appointed with a safe, minibar, and television. The bathroom was clean and functional except for the hot water. The city was working on the main line to the hotel. I do believe that at check in there should have been warning for this inconvenience and not just a piece of paper on the desk in the room. Showering in the in the Baltics any time of year without hot water is just too painfully cold. I would have expected at least some directions or a deal worked out with the local spa for showers.

The rooms on the street front may be a little noisy from a bar or two echoing from down the street. The hotel has a restaurant but there is so much outside that I did not choose to eat in the hotel.

Hotel Justus is a charming hotel in the Old City of Riga, and the price is nice. A nice breakfast buffet is included. The location is excellent, only a few minutes from everything. The staff were very positive and friendly, always helpful answering questions about the city, museums, restaurants etc. The rooms are big enough, and we were very happy to find a king size bed, not two separate beds. This is simply one of the best hotels we stayed in.

A new hotel which has taken care of old details, neighbour to the Riga Dome. Very charming, but yet modern. It is clean and tidy, the breakfast is excellent and the staff always alert, serviceminded and very helpful. You could not stay better!

Room Tip: Rooms towards the street are a little noisy in week end nights. Superior room on the top was spacy.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Four-star boutique Hotel Justus is located in the very of the old town of Riga, literally a few steps away from the famous Dome cathedral, within the architectural area protected by UNESCO as a part of world heritage. The immaculate renovation of the historical building was completed by April 2009, and so today the authentic facade conceals 45 cosy rooms uniquely designed to embrace the charm of genuine brickwork combined with fascinating art objects, antique as well as contemporary. Personalised service matched with attractive pricing policy makes Hotel Justus of great interest for a wide range of guests. The hotel’s site possesses high historical value, since it was part of the plot of land selected by Bishop Albert as the location for his Baltic residence back in 1210. However, the medieval wooden housing was destroyed by the fire in the 17th century, so the architectural ensemble comprising Jauniela Street today dates back to the 18th century. The facade of the hotel itself underwent the last major alteration in 1874. The building hosted a tavern in the early 19th century that was later replaced by typography and lithography services, in the 20th century it was occupied by artisan workshops, pharmaceutical laboratories, and then a cinema gallery and offices. Charms of architecture and historical atmosphere made this place a favourite shooting spot of Soviet movie-makers. Now the hotel belongs to a small group of friends that has spotted an empty run-down building and revived it with artistic energy.Idea of making restaurant Aleks comes from the simple desire to enjoy Riga of the beginning of the previous century. Interior is made from the household items of those times, which gives the restaurant unique look. ... more   less
