The highlights are strong open wifi and excellent breakfast buffet..
They have a caged parrot in the breakfast area, probably speaking Latvian as I did not understand what it was saying ;-)
Room clean and comfy but rather small, luxurious bathroom with a huge bath tub..
Other details on the plus side: reasonably sized work desk and CAN open windows!
Excellent central location 2 mins walk from Roland statue Doma cathedral and other must sees for tourists ;-)
15 min by cab from the RIX airport, up to 30 with bad traffic and/or event obstructions in the city centre..
The property is well conserved and clean. The negative point is that the room/s have no windows but a little ventilation above the entrance doors (they are build around the yard..
The staff is very friendly and efficient. D`uring our stay in September is was mosquito season!!

Nestling in a charming narrow street, the 4-star Old Riga Hotel Vecriga offers the very best in attractively priced …More
Well situated at the edge of the old town opposite a beautiful park. There are many good, but slow-service, restaurants within a few minutes' walk. Reserve at least an hour's wait for food to appear on the table; this means that you can't be hungry if you want to eat in a restaurant. However, the food is always good when it arrives.
A taxi from the bus station charged 15 € to take us to the hotel. On arrival there the driver said that there were two hotels of that name and we needed the other one, so he drove another five minutes and charged another 5 € to dump us in another street, saying that it was one-way and he couldn't drive further but the hotel was only 50 metres along the street. It was 500 metres and turned out to be the hotel where he had first taken us. When we checked out of the hotel we took a taxi waiting outside and he charged 4.50 € to take us to the bus station. Moral - beware of taxi drivers!
With its cobblestone streets and beautifully restored 19th century architecture, Riga's Old Town is the heart of Latvian culture and history. Situated on the eastern banks of the river Daugava, Riga's Old Town is best seen by foot. Popular outdoor markets, churches, and the iconic House of Blackheads are all conveniently close. Bars, cafes, and restaurants are abundant and easy to find.
