Perfect

Posted 26-Jun-2014
In a word, fantastic. A spotless room with robe, slippers. Location us amazing: in the old town, across the street from a supermarket, a block from the Opera. An exceptional restaurant -- the best food I had in Latvia, inventive and beautifully prepared. The staff is outstanding! An ATM machine ate my debit card on the eve of the national holiday. Alex on the desk contacted the bank to block the card and got my through to American Express to make sure it was cancelled.

Great city!

Posted 28-May-2014
Pros: Location. Comfort of hotel was very good. Breakfast.
Cons: Little softer bed.
Location: Location is great right in old city center. Walked easily to everything we wanted to see.
We really liked Riga. It is the type of smaller old city we enjoy exploring. Easily walked to the Cathedrals we wanted to see. It is a beautiful city. Really nice park to relax and enjoy. The people were friendly and we had a great dinner on one of the outdoor patio cafes. The prices of things were generally quite a bit less than the rest of our trip in Helsinki and Russia. We enjoyed just walking the narrow streets shopping and enjoying the one day we had here. Would definitely like to return. There are a couple museums we didn't get a chance to see.

Short Break

Posted 06-May-2014
3 couples stayed at the hotel at the end of April 2014. The hotel is situated right in the heart of the old town which was great. Rooms were good and service very good.

Riga. Fascinating city and marvellous hotel

Posted 29-Apr-2014
Pros: Location excellent. The staff were incredibly cheerful and helpful at all times, kind and polite. The room was both comfortable and clean, excellent
Cons: Maybe a bit more space to relax in the evening, I.e. A bigger bar sitting area
Location: Old city fascinating and we were in the middle of everything, St Peter's Square very close and all the important sites.
Everything went well and had a marvellous time. The weather was fabulous for late April and we saw everything we wanted to. We even had a ride on the river. The Old Vity Hotel was great.

Good but limited internet.

Posted 11-Apr-2014
Service good. Location excellent. Room excellent. BUT, lack of internet wired or wireless in the rooms on 7th floor was unexpected and made the stay less productive.

Hotel in the centre of the old city

Posted 24-Mar-2014
Pros: Staff helpful and courteous, rooms modern but some with Medieval survivals
Cons: Provision of tea-making facilities
Location: Good and central - 5min from the opera house.
Excellent hotel for a long weekend, absolutely first class - except no tea-making facilites for the British, and basement restaurant has little atmosphere - but plenty of good restarrants around.

Great location but...

Posted 07-Jan-2014 on Hotels.com
Brilliant location for this hotel which markets itself as 4 star. Afraid not, would be 3 star at most because when in 4 star hotels they clean your rooms daily not just make the bed and empty the bins. Whilst we only opted for the 'Classic' room which was a bit pokey the rest of the hotel was up to par - good buffet breakfast and staff helpful if not a little forgetful who the guests were. Nonetheless this hotel has a great location close walk to the most important sites and shops if you need that distraction. Get a good deal if you can to make it worthwhile to stay here,
