Luxurious, comfortable, thoughtful, gracious. Staff was top notch. Room was well appointed. Breakfasts were, frankly, over the top. My husband and I enjoyed the Pils bar and Suite lounge in the evening. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to the most discerning traveler.
I had a mere 24 hours to spend in Riga, and was hoping for a beautiful apartment style hotel, which is what this exactly was. Massive bed and a cute balcony that let me overlook the cobblestone streets. The staff was very kind--gave me directions to a few different places in Riga and since I was leaving at 5am the next day, offered to pack up breakfast for me... So sweet! I've stayed at more hotels than I can recall and no one's ever done this. Definitely recommend if you're in Riga!
It's a nice hotel, very well located, clean, comfortable, bit of character, good spa and excellent breakfasts. For the money I thought it was of a high standard. The only fly in the oitment for our stay related to cycle storage. On arrival we were told we couldn't store the 3 cycles in the room (fair enough, you don't want the place messed up), but if we wanted to lock them in the broom cupboard outside for our 36 hours in Riga it would cost 30 Euros. The suggestion that we either paid the money or locked them in the street outside overnight felt somewhat confrontational. It took a reasonable amout of arguing with several members of staff before the charge was waived. I'll give them credit that they did back down in the end, but it shouldn't have got to that stage. As I say, this was the only criticism I have of the place, and I think most travellers would find it an excellent place to stay in Riga.
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
Staff very helpful & cheerful. Easy walking in City. Had taxi from airport as late in day. Best way is to catch local bus (No22) to Riga centre (1.5 euros), only if you know how to get to your hotel usually within walking distance. Marvellous transport system (9 tram 19 trolley bus routes), ideal for transport buffs. Each route is pleasant the City is surprisingly very green with trees & lush grass. The churches were rather plain although the Orthodox Church is worth visiting.
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.
