  • Most Beautiful View of Riga

    by

    Pros: Beautiful view of the Daugava River and a signature panorama of Riga across the river – if you get the room with the river view. The room size is bigger than in other Radisson Hotels in Riga. Very good breakfast was included in the room price, as well as sauna and free Wi-Fi.
    Cons: Hotel needs renovation. A longer trip to the tourist area in the Old Town, about 15 minutes walking over the bridge, or 5 minutes by taxi. The hotel offers a free shuttle bus, but only from the hotel to the Old Town. You have to make reservations for this service every time.
    One time we experienced a 20-minute delay for the shuttle because of some extremely VIP arrival at the hotel, and the front desk could not inform us of the time of the delay.
    It was very quiet at night, despite some reviews to the contrary.
    Dinner in the hotel’s restaurant was less impressive than the breakfast.
    Once again, this hotel has the most beautiful view of Riga out of all the hotels in Riga.
    Question for the management: Why is there a huge, unavoidably visible graffiti in Russian (probably left over from the Soviet Union?) on the river bank, seen from the rooms with a river view?

    Unique Quality: Hotel has the most beautiful view of Riga out of all the hotels in Riga

    Comfortable stay in Riga.

    by

    The Radisson is situated on the left bank of the Daugava River and overlooks Riga Skyline and Old Town. Its approx 10 minutes walk across the bridge into Old Town. The building from the outside is built with Russian influence so its a dreary square box. We booked this hotel primary for having a safe secure place for our hired car and it was supposed to also house Europcar office (that no longer exists) for drop off.

    Check in - Everything went smoothly and the staff very efficient and friendly.

    Room – Our room 815 was on the Business Class floor and was roomy, airy and comfortable. The room consisted of a king size bed, bedside tables, good size working desk, internet connection, couch, two chairs, coffee table, TV, mini bar and a fab coffee machine. A door lead out to a small concrete balcony which overlooked communists housing blocks and the carport. We were also given free bottles of water and a lovely fruit basket every day. Turndown service was also excellent.

    Bathroom – good size with shower over bath, heated towel rack, good make-up mirror, bathrobes and slippers were also supplied.

    Breakfast – marvelous with a chef cooking eggs and a excellent selection of ham, cheese. Pastries, juices etc.etc….staff were also very sociable and efficient.

    Restaurant – We had a pleasant lunch and found everything up to the standard we know for a 5 star hotel in the Baltic States.

    Facilities – The hotel is a 5 star rating because of its facilities on offer. There is a bank for changing money, swimming pool, fitness centre, hairdresser, broadband connection, laundry service, secure parking and a free shuttle bus or free taxi vouchers to take you to the Old Town. The Casino is located next door and is also apart of the hotel.

    Unique Quality: Overall – Although this hotel is thought as being on the wrong side of the river, we had absolutely no problem with the location. The hotel has a shuttle bus and also gives you a free voucher for a taxi ride if the bus is not operating. The walk across the bridge is very easy and takes 10 minutes, it’s a wonderful place to take some photos of Riga’s skyline and bridges. The hop on/hop off tour bus stops outside the hotel.

    We enjoyed our room and the hotel and would recommend it to others. This hotel would be the best suited to those traveling by car. Old Town has limited parking facilities. The only negative I could find was our view but then again it depends how you look at it…to me, its just the reflection of Riga’s dramatic history.

    Directions: A five minute across the bridge to Old Town.

    Radisson SAS Daugava Hotel

    by

    Radisson SAS Daugava Hotel is located on the banks of the Daugava River, with a 15 minute walk from the hotel to the old city of Riga.

    Good, clean and large rooms. Service OK, but why doesn’t anyone smile? The hotel has a lobby bar and a restaurant. We had dinner one evening at the restaurant, and the food was great but the service was slow (and again no smile?)

    The hotel is connected to a casino (open 24-hrs).

    The hotel is absolutely recommendable.

    Good, reliable

    by

    Stayed here 7 or 8 times. Always good. Comfortable rooms, excellent food, great views over river. Short walk to city centre. Convenient for airport. Park nearby for jogging.

    No aircon - can be tricky in heat of summer.

    Definitely recommended.

    Unique Quality: The view from riverside is great.

    One time the Barcelona football team were staying there same time as me. How can they eat so much breakfast?

    Directions: Just across river from city centre.

"Riga City Centre Camping"

– a sole fully equipped campsite in the heart of Riga, the centre of the Baltics.

Riga city centre camping is a safe economic class lodging in the summertime, offering diversity of recreation and accommodation services and is located in a 15 minutes walk from the Old Town. The camping offers democratic environment, full service and an excellent recreation on the island that lies in the heart of Riga. It is located near the International Exhibition Centre in Kipsala, close by the historical centre of the city.

The camping offers space for 63 tents and hook up for 10 trailers. It is a facilitated territory for encampment, parking, recreation and sports providing variety of services that will make your stay here an excellent part of your visit to Riga.

Everyone is welcome here, with or without a tent. Motorists, bikers or hitchhikers can stay overnight in the city centre paying a moderate price. The camping offers tasty meals, showers and sauna, to pass the night and then to set forth. For the most active people, we offer facilities for tennis and streetball, roller blade and bicycle rental. It is a great opportunity to explore Kipsala’s remote corners, to view wooden buildings of Pardaugava or to enjoy the tourists’ paradise in the Old Town – hundreds of architectural monuments and pubs.

The Riga city centre camping is located close by the Old Town where are numerous tourist, entertainment and commercial objects. In a couple of minutes walk from the camping, there is a swimming pool, supermarket and ATMs of several banks.

Located in the centre of Riga, Kipsala offers a spectacular view to the Old Town. Kipsala is the buffer zone of the Riga historical centre included in the list of the World’s Cultural Heritage in 1997. It is of immeasurable value owing to its relief, landscape and wooden buildings (some of them are fishermen houses built in the beginning of the 19th century).

The Old Town on its turn is the historical and geographical centre of the Riga City and lies on the right bank of the Daugava river. The Old Town encloses a relatively small territory of the 13th – 18th city fortifications with unique monuments of medieval architecture .

"at the Latvian Railway History Museum"

When in Riga a visit to this museum is a must.
The museum is situated on the left bank of the Daugava River at Uzvaras Boulevard in an old engine warehouse. The location is just 5 minutes walk from Radisson SAS Daugava Hotel.

The complex of the building will include exposition halls, an office and an exposition in a carriage. A new exhibition hall in the engine warehouse was opened in September 2000.

There are more than a thousand items, documents and photographs in the museum collection. Communications and signalling equipment, tools and instruments of railroad repairmen, uniforms and distinguishing badges, station interior objects, tickets and delivery notes are all on display. Station buildings and railway bridges built during the time of first Republic of Latvia

In War museum you can still learn about Latvia's bloody history over the past century, from the fate of Latvian soldiers in World War I, to the Soviet occupation of Latvia that lasted 50 years after World War II, to the Third Awakening that led to Latvia's renewed independence in 1991. It also informs about the various collections and exhibitions at the museum. Also worth reading is the history of the museum itself: established in 1915 as the Latvian riflemen's museum in the historic Powder Tower in Vecriga, the museum was closed in 1940 when the Soviets took control. Reopened in 1957, it was renamed the Museum of the Revolution and for the next 30-odd years offered the Soviet version of Latvian history. After the collapse of the Soviet Union its former name, Latvijas Kara muzejs, was restored and the arduous task began of gathering information and materials to inform the public about the truth of Latvia's recent past.

"Championship in the City of Ice-Hockey Fans"

It will be the largest-in-scale sports event in the history of Latvia and the entire Baltics. We are proud and honoured that the International Ice-Hockey Federation has decided to assign the organisation of this important and exciting event to Latvia. Although it was very recently that we returned into the international ice-hockey community and the population of this country is only a little above 2.3 million, Latvia has already been noticed and acclaimed there. This we owe to the exciting play of Latvian national team in several World Championships as well as to our unrivalled hockey fans whose loyalty to their favourite kind of sports and to our team deserves admiration. It is not without a reason that the slogan of 2006 World Championship is: "Championship in the City of Ice-Hockey Fans".
Those ice-hockey fans, who do not really know yet where Latvia is and what kind of country it is, need not hesitate to come either! Riga is an interesting city that offers excellent recreation opportunities and cultural events. Fans will have no chance to become bored in-between the games of their teams. It is a tradition in Latvia: when we have guests, we put our urgent duties aside and do our utmost to make the visitors see and learn as much as possible. See you in Latvia in the beautiful Latvian spring, the spring of ice-hockey!
