We have just stayed at the Mann-Tess and found it to be very comfortable, nice small scale lodging with solid morning light breakfast and very helpful and friendly concierge, wait staff. It is located in the heart of Old Riga. I highly recommend it.
"Very good quality service and very good location"
The staff was very helpful and nice.
Comfort and cleanliness in the room was very good.
Breakfast was satisfactory.
The hotel was very quite.
Location was very convenient to get the airport bus and visit the town.
My mother and I stayed at this hotel and thought it was very lovely. As women who like to window shop, we loved the ability to walk through a market every time we headed into town. The staff were incredibly helpful and genuine in their advice - including one staff member making it clear that she would rather we got taxis back from town at night, just for her personal ease of mind (this cost no more than €4) -it was nice feeling so cared about. The hotel itself was spotless and we couldn't fault it. The restaurant staff were very kind and attentive and the live music made the atmosphere so enjoyable and made you feel so naturally happy. Would definitely recommend!
The hotel sits in an area that appears a bit "sketchy" but upon arrival it is clear that it is well cared for. The registration staff is polite and helpful and gave a complete run down of the facility. She made reservations for a taxi to the airport for us. The facility is clean, safe and comfortable. We had an easy 15 minute walk from the bus station.
The bed was comfortable, the room spacious and the breakfast tasty and complete. I would now hesitate to stay here again.
We stayed on the ground floor so no problem with luggage but it is a multistory structure without elevator.
If you have your own car, don't mind taking public transport or walking a few miles to the city then maybe this place would be right for you. It's pretty basic and in a residential area with very little to see or do close by. Blocks of flats and very serious and not very approachable locals. I hardly saw a smile outside of the hotel. Hotel staff were very professional and well presented. Free WIFI and an ok breakfast is a plus. Rates go up and down considerably at the low end it's a good deal.
My partner and I stayed at the Clarion Collection Hotel Valdemars in Riga. We were given a very warm welcome and quickly came to realise that the hotel's aim was to be like a home from home. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, who were extremely pleasant and happy to chat and answer questions. Added to this was the provision of tea and coffee all day long, as well as fresh fruit, an afternoon snack and an evening meal - at no extra charge. I found it to be a very relaxing stay. The hotel is conveniently situated about 10 minutes walk across a park to the Old Town. During our stay we visited the Russian Orthodox Cathedral, which is in the park and the Jewish Museum which is just around the corner from the hotel. There is a lot to see and this hotel was a convenient place to stay whilst we explored the lovely city of Riga.
The bed was very comfortable, the room was fine - not too hot - not too cold, and we slept very soundly. A refurbishment of the Reception and lounge/dining area had started on the day we left and as my only criticism would have been that some items of the furniture here could do with a make over, now that I know it's being done, I have no criticisms at all. We would recommend it and would be more than happy to stay there again.
The hotel building has an interesting story behind it of a family's escape during WW2, buried treasure and their eventual return to reclaim what was theirs. Go there and read about it yourself.
