We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. The location is fantastic, right in the middle of the historic centre of Riga, but in a quiet street (if you disregard the man playing the flute for hours at night, right in front of the hotel). Buffet breakfast is served in a restaurant nearby and was good with enough to choose from. The rooms in the hotel are very small, but nicely decorated and clean, with a lovely bathroom. The only negative points I can think of is the fact that you have to climb lots of stairs with your suitcase, as there is no lift (not surprising of course for an old building, but still) and the staff that gave mixed signals about paying with credit card. Upon arrival, the girl checking us in insisted on cash payment, but the next day, another girl did not have a problem with credit card payment, so we settled our bill with her. The hotel has free wi fi, which did not work very well inside the rooms, but a lot better in the hallways and at reception. A nice hotel to stay at for a few days.

Room Tip: Because of the stairs you have to climb, I would recommend getting a room not too high up in the hotel.

Our stay at Ekes Konvents hotel was a great experience. The hotel is well located in the very historic city center. It is the oldest hotel in Riga and the history is everywhere when you enter. Rooms are not big but spacious enough. We asked for a quiet room and we had a room with a street view on Saint John church which was very quiet as we expected.
Prices were very reasonable compared to other hotel nearby. We would warmly recommend this place for anybody who wants to visit Riga and stay in the old town.

I stayed there one night only and enjoyed the hotel. It is a cute little place located in the heart of old Riga.
The room is quite simple and not too large but it is clean and comfortable. The staff however do not know much about Riga and its tourist attractions which was rather disappointing.
The hotel is located in a very busy part of town but there was hardly any noise at night which was very surprising as it is a very popular tourist destination and I was there over the weekend when the weather was excellent.
The breakfast was served in a near by restaurant and it was rather disappointing - there was really little to choose from for vegetarians and if one wants a decent coffee rather than the one sitting on a table for some time, it can be requested but at extra charge.
All in all, I would come back if I am back to Riga.

Room Tip: I thought it was a quiet room but can imagine it is much noisier in the summer time so request a room on that doesn't face St. Peter's church and is on the top floor. There are no lifts in the hotel and as it is an old building, the stairs are curvy.

A charming, historic building that also offers modern comfort and easy access to all the sights. I would recommend it to anyone visiting Riga who enjoys an individual experience not a bland hotel.

We enjoyed the rooms and the breakfast. I also have to say that staff was fantastic and very helpful. One more thing. If you wish to learn Latvian traditional grill taste I highly recommend to visit Alibi restaurant. There’s the most delicious grill I ever tasted. Thanks to Raivis.

Stayed: December 2011, travelled with family
