Looking for the best hotel Riga has to offer

by Hawi

Dear VT members,

I am visiting Riga next month (mid July) for 6 nights with my family (4, all adults).

would like to know what are top hotels in terms of location, service, rooms, etc..
5 star is preferable, if a 4 star is a guaranteed option then it's alright.

Any advice would be appreciated, as I have spend a week searching reviews and ratings and yet to know which is the safest option.


Thank you :)

The Radisson Blu Hotel Latvija is a fine choice.
Elizabetes 55 - LV-1010 Riga - Latvia Phone: +371 67772222

Good location, great views from the bar above, close to Old Town & shopping district, flawless service.

Thanks Durfon,
did check it out due to the high ratings (tripadvisor.com & booking.com)
does seem like the safest nicer choice but looking for more of a boutique with character.

I would recommend Hotel Bergs.

It definitely is has much more of 'boutique' in it.

Didn't stay there (only dined several times in the restaurant), but I really like the place the hotel is located in and its character.

Hi,
I would recommend you to stay in any hotel nearby or within the Old town.
During summer Old town of Riga may be very noisy due to several restaurants and pubs.
Please see hotel de Rome, Reval Latvija. I even liked hotel Centra because of the very good location, in the middle of old town and quite reasonable fare, but propably the best choice for adults with no children.
I also liked hotel Riga, but at the moment they are having renovations going on, which may distub you, I was there few days ago and I heard the renovations but they didn't disturb me( I was quite surprised about it), but the fares for the rooms are very reasonable.
Radisson BLU Daugava hotel is situated on the other side of Daugava river, so you need to across the bridge to get to old town nad the city center, it's not a long way but a lot of traffic on it and if your children are very small, the walking distance might be too much.

I hope you'll enjoy your trip to Riga and if you have time please visit the beautiful summer town Jurmala, very near to Riga.
Will be interested to know what hotel you picked and how you liked it.

Sorry, just now read your question properly..
I have not much experience about boutique hotels, but this one has got very high scores in customer reviews and the location is good.

Travel Tips for Riga

Jugendstil Houses

by bijo69

If you're interested in architecture, you'll love Riga. At the beginning of the 20th century the city began to extend beyond the city walls and magnificent houses were built in the former suburbs. You'll find especiall nice examples in Alberta and Elizabetes iela.
My favourites were the Russian & Ukrainian embassies in Kalpaka Bulvar though.

Rings on the bridge in

by Vincedem

This is a very nice tradition: couples who are getting married putting locks on this bridge in this parc as a symbol for their "unbreakable" love that will (hopefully) last forever! You can find this bridge in the Bastejkalns parc.

Bowling and laser paintball in Bowlero center

by Inguuna

One of the places where you can relax good and actively. Here, as it shows the name of bowling center, one can play bowling in one of two great halls. Also near the bowling alleys there are tables where playing you can enjoy drinks and some snacks.
Here you can also try laser paintball - nothing painful only some running, and also enjoy more sport activities.
The center offers also restaurant and bar.

GALERIJA CENTRS

by gugi66 about GALERIJA CENTRS

A BIG SHOPPING MALL. FIVE FLOORS WITH ALOT OF SHOPS. BUT IT´S NOT SO CHEAP, ALL THE STORES ARE BIG CHAINSTORES THAT YOU CAN FIND IN ALL OVER EUROPE.

IF YOU WANT TO TAKE PICTURES OR VIDEORECORD BEWARE OF THE SECURITY GUARDS THAT WALKS AROUND, EVIDENTLY IT´S FORBIDDEN TO TAKE PICTURES AND VIDEOFILMS.

LOOK AT MY VIDEO OF GALERIJA CENTRS SE THE GUARD COME TO ME AND TRY TO TAKE MY CAMERA (WHAT AN IDIOT). LIKE I´V GIVE HER THE CAMERA SO SHE COULD ERASE THE PICTURES!!!!! NOTHING SPECIAL.
