Tired and dated

This hotel could be something special Its location is perfect. You can walk easily around the old city and the bus and train stations are just five minutes away. First impressions on walking into the hotel is that of a friendly art nouveau something different hotel but that is where the charm ends. The bedrooms are small and cramped with only superior rooms having any kind of a view and that would probably be of the street below. The most disappointing part of the hotel is its catering. Breakfast gives you a large choice but frequently has break downs with the coffee and juice machines and hot food is always just luke warm. Trying to get a meal at any other time of day was virtually impossible with excuses such as large party in no food left kitchen closed till 5 so we always eat out in the abundance of very reasonably priced restaurants in the city. You could not get a coffee in the mornings until the bar opened at 12 30 and if you want a good strong pot of tea they will charge you for an extra tea bag. The hotel also lacks anywhere comfortable to sit unless you use the crowded hotel reception area or the outside bar area overlooking a dusty lane. Sorry Old Riga Palace will definitely be back to Riga but will stay elsewhere.

Switching into disgusting smoking room and unauthorised charges after leaving

After booking a non-smoking room I was given a smoking room - with the staff apparently having no appreciation of how bad it is for a non-smoker to have to sleep in a room with a stench of smoke. It was utterly disgusting. They then added extra charges to my card after I left. Won't go back.

City visit

Excellent location and vey comfortable. Room had fridge, wired internet, ironing board/iron and even an umbrella! Comprehensive breakfast. Only minor downside was advice not to drink tap water in room. I bought very cheap bottled water from nearby supermarket.

It was fantastic!

I've been to Riga several times, every time a new hotel. Didn't really care much about where I was staying, but this one - I really enjoyed my stay. The staff was amazing, very friendly. I really liked the location and how quite it was. Best trip to Europe so far.

Riga, Latvia Hotel

This Hotel is near to the heart of the "old town". The reason We were visiting Riga was for pleasure, visiting frends and making new ones. The Hotel is not equiped with a bellman or restaurant. This Hotel is just a place to stay and sleep, nothing else. Although You might think that this was a negative description, it's not. The hotel rooms were small, with comfortable beds.

Old Riga Palace Hotel Riga

Went for a conference. The breakfast could be a little better - I do not mean quantity - the variety was there. I would work on quality. The room was a bit noisy. The stuff could be a bit more helpful - helping calling to US (they told t\us they do not know how to call 1-800 numbers and were not willing to help), checking out 0 one person started checking us out and then got on the phone for about 15 min. - we did not know if we were checked out or not and just stood there).
