Art Hotel Laine

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Spacious & clean rooms, friendly staff, near the National Gallery & Art Nouveau streets. After about 10 different accommodations tried in Riga, this is our favorite. Breakfast is tasty with enough options.

This is a lovely hotel in the better part of town away from the mayhem of Old Riga. The breakfast and wifi are great for such a budget priced hotel and the rooms are lovely with an old fashioned touch. The location has it's own nouveau gems, the bars and nightlife are much better and 'cooler' than the tourist hotspots and it's of course cheaper.

cozy hotel in the style of art nouveau. occupies several upper floors in a residential building quiet rooms with antique furniture and caring staff disadvantage - hot water is heated for a long time if I come back to Riga again, I may again choose this hotel

The staff couldn't be friendlier, the rooms are a good size as is are the bathrooms and the location is very good being very near the Latvian Museum of Art and just a few 100 metres to other places of interest.

I lived in this hotel for 2 weeks while participating in a professional development program in Riga in September 2017. The room was clean, the hotel staff were always responsive and polite, breakfast were very good (if I didn`t have to eat them for 2 weeks in a row, they would feel even better!), the hotel location and infrastructure around were also very good - the hotel is close to the city center but is in a quiet street. Disadvantages: 1) the elevator was only working till the 5th floor (out of 7) 2) There was no wifi on some floors

Great location in wider city center, 10 min. walk from Dome square. Spacious room, very clean, nice breakfast. Furniture a bit outdated. Very friendly and helpful staff in reception. Overall excellent choice for the price.

I arrived early in the morning of Saturday 16 of September.Check in time at 14.00. Before starting strolling at city's centre, I decided to have a coffee. I have been advised that it costs 1,80 euros, At checking out, except room's cost, I saw this amount (1,80). OK, it was fair enough to be charged, but this amount is so cheap and worthless, nonexistent hospitality.

Art Hotel Laine is an old hotel, but the rooms are nice, clean and artsy. The hotel is in a good location, so you can reach Riga centre by foot. We chose a room with bath, which was very spacious and beautiful. The room was quite small, furniture a bit old, but price for the room was very good (room + breakfast).

Quirky hotel in the heart of the Art Nouveau district and within walking distance of the Old Town. The staff are very friendly and helpful; breakfast is quite good and there is a sweet deck to eat breakfast or lunch outside when the weather permits. My only regret is that they have closed the bar in the evenings - on previous visits I enjoyed being able to get a glass of wine or beer and a bowl of 'grauzdins' in the evening.

We found the staff very helpful and friendly and the room was a little quirky in decor (hence the name). Breakfast was good and we didn't experience any of the food shortages others have mentioned. The hotel is ideally placed for getting into the old town and is a pleasant 20 minute walk away. The hotel is a little dated but we enjoyed the experience and would definitely come back again.
