“Nice boutique hotel in Old Riga.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2012

We stayed here for two nights. It was my boyfriend's 1st time in Riga and he was pleasantly surprised with the standard of this hotel having traveled extensively throughout Europe. Great value for money, excellent location, excellent staff especially the reception staff. Although we didn't eat in the hotel restaurant, the buffet breakfast was excellent with plenty of variety to suit all tastes.

The only minor disappointment was that there was no tea/coffee making facilities in the room and the street noise when the window is open but apart from that the room was warm and cosy, nice decor, a decent size and we loved the heated floor in the bathroom.

We would definitely stay again and would recommend it to our friends.

Room Tip: Request a room on a higher floor at the front for a great view of the surrounding rooftops.

We stayed here from 30th Nov - 4th Dec 2011... and we had a wonderful time. Our room was gorgeous with exposed brick work and lovely clean spotless bathroom. The staff were friendly and helpful, the bar staff were a little sullen - but their lovely cocktails made up for it! Breakfast was delicious and always steaming hot.
Old City Boutique Hotel, is incredibly central to anywhere that you want to get to. Literally a stones throw from the bridge that takes you over the river and park, or a stones throw in the other dircetion to St Peters church or a gorgeous restaurant called Domini Canes, and a friendly little Kiwi Bar! There were x-mas markets setting up on every corner whilst we were there and the next weekend was due to be a very busy one. We found it was very quiet whilst we were there. We loved the hotel, but probably wouldnt rush back to Riga, as you can walk round the city in one day and then there isnt much else to do other than eat. drink or shop! None of which were a huge effort for us!! :-p

I chose Old City Boutique hotel without knowing it. Picked it through the internet. I was surprised to find it so nice, pleasant, fells good, relaxing. I would for sure come again! Also recommend to visit family restaurant Alibi which is located near the hotel. Delicious grill in Latvian traditional style. Lovely place.

Excellent Hotel. This was our 6th visit to Riga (second to see in the new year) and we had always stayed at Hotel Riga. But this year we decided to try somewhere different. We had originally booked at a different hotel, but after a mix up with a double booking upon arrival we were booked into this Boutique hotel as an alternative, and what a pleasant surprise it was.
This is not some large grand hotel, but a very bright and modern smaller hotel with a beautiful atmosphere. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Rooms comfortable, excellent value for the price.
The hotel is situated in an excellent location in the Old Town, only a short walk away from all main attractions.
If this is the type of mid range hotel you are looking for, you shouldn't have any problems here. (Obviously I can speak on every room :-)).

Stayed here twice, beginning and end of trip through the Baltics. Spend two nights in a new room and 2 in an older one. The latter one was ok, but nothing special. The new room was great though, with nice modern touches but also with the original old wall on one side of the room which was great! Breakfast and service is good as well and there is a computer for guest use in the lounge. Very central location. Had a great time!
