room OK and clean.location perfect.Close to most interesting points.WIFI only in a lobby.personal friendly. elevator unfortunately doesn't go to 5 floor.You need to drag You luggage upstairs.Good food on breakfast buffet style.
Location perfect - central enough but away from hustle and bustle. Rooms - clean and functional, really good shower! Service - every member of staff I met was approachable helpful and friendly Food - we only ate the breakfast, it was continental, not much to my liking but plenty of fresh options! The coffee was good! Price was fantastic 👌 I didn't expect much for the price and reviews, don't let them put you off it's well worth a visit
We were there for a short stay. We took a double bed room. It was clean and had a private bathroom. Location was good because it was close to our work meeting point. Breakfast was okay and staff members were nice.
Hotel is located in good place, near Riga center. Walking distance to old town, railroad station, shoppingmall. Hotel is quiet, away from traffic noises. Every room has two doors, which makes rooms quiet. Helpfull staff in hotel and restaurant. I will definatly go back! Thank you.
The personnel was great: very attentive, kind and patient to all requests. Breakfast was tasty and fresh-cooked. The dining-room was very cozy, with a fire-place. Room was neat and tidy. The hotel and the room was very quite.
The hotel is well-situated. It is in Center but has short route to Old town. Also, the jugend Art nouveau area is close. Nearby are many good-quality cafes and restaurants. Miit, La Kanna, Raw garden. Also plenty of others, easy to spot before the visit in Google maps. The Art nouveau is all around in Riga, but 2 main streets of it are nearby. Some nice tea houses around etc (like Shan tea). The hotel building is old but I found it rather nice. However, it also means that elevator is old and small and water of shower was cold and you had to make it run many minutes before it turned warm! Also, for longer stay, the breakfast turned to be very repetive as it did not change at all. Warm porridge or like or some other variation could be nice. Room was big and bed OK. Some noise was around and possible to be heard from other rooms and from out.It did not bother me but some can be irritated. (Oh, trash basket could be helpful in the rooms!) All communication with staff was easy and friendly. They helped with minor and bigger problems. I find it good that the room key had to be left to reception, for security purposes. I find it very good place for longer stay to see Riga in its many sides, though it was winter. The weather was not that good in Dec but to see cultural heritage was more important to me.
Rooms are clean and spacious, no electronic keys, so you better leave it at reception, nice staff. Not ordinary hotel with own doorman and lot of services but still it is recommended for families or persons with not very much needs.
Just returned from a 3 night stay at the Art Hotel Laine. Very pleasant experience. The Hotel is superbly located for a 5 -10 minute walk into the heart of Riga Old Town. Literally, turn right out of the hotel, and walk straight into town. Strangely the reception is on the 3rd floor, having entrered the building through a small courtyard. They like Yellow and Green here ! it's everywhere. Reception and the dining room are on the same level. The bar was't open at nights, but There is a nice outside Decking area used in the summer months. Very pleasant and welcoming staff, also helpfull. Our stay included breakfast which was very good. The usual cereals, fruit, meats and cheese, and juices. but also hot sausages, scrambled Egg and pancakes. Tea and coffee is also in plentiful supply. Our room was on the 6th floor, there is a lift but it only reaches the 5th !! No matter we enjoyed the excercise. The landing leading to our room was faded yellow paint on woodchip, this area of the hotel needs a facelift, if only a few pictures on the walls. It is called the "Art" Hotel after all. The room was spacious, warm, clean and green !!! The bathroom was very big with a large bath and shower fitting above it. Here led to the one issue. Hot water !! We had some, but had to run the taps for at least 5 minutes. The boiler must be on the ground floor. Large comfy bed, TV if you want it, but no kettle or tea and coffee. I really like a brew when i get back to a hotel after walking around a city. So this was a slight disappointment for me. Apart from those two samll gripes we had a great stay and I would cetainly stop here again should be return to Riga.
This is our second stay in the hotel. We spent three nights. Good Location (almost centered) , cleanness and value-for-money. Also heater works very good. No Internet coverage in rooms. Still is our first choice in Riga :-)
I can only recommend this cozy and nice hotel for whatever trips you have in mind. All staff are very polite and helpful, rooms clean and spacious for the price . Location is perfect. An excellent choice!
