Most Beautiful View of Riga

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 21, 2012

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

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.

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.
