Let's start with the good points: location was great, hotel exterior also great. The interior however needs lots of improvements. I get that is old architecture, but it was not well preserved and taken care of. In the room, the bed cover looked terrible (as if it hadn't been washed for ages). The window curtains had cigarette burnt. The TV was facing the door instead of facing the beds. Really? I mean we broke our necks to watch it. What would have costed them to place it right? Then again, for a 4 stars hotel to give the smallest recipients of hair shampoo and shower gel EVER, well that is not OK. No slippers, nor iron in the room. Remember that we are talking about a 4 stars hotel. 4 stars! The food was so and so. I expected more since they had a restaurant right there but anyways compared to the rest it was okeyish.
From the pictures it looks really fancy, but in fact it's neglected and not that convenient...Localization is fine, and breakfast not bad, but IMO those are the only advantages. Staff seem to be bored and not super-friendly. Bathrooms were in quite bad condition (bath tub was kind of destroyed in our room), also wallpapers were comming out of the walls and rooms smelled filthy. The 'spa' area would be nice, if the jacuzzi wasn't cold and therefore useless.. I wouldn't stay there again.
The hotel architecture is fabulous and much of it has been retained. Our room was good sized and clean with a huge bathroom. Loved that the windows open! There is a huge second story patio that overlooks a park and a busy street that was great for people watching while enjoying a cocktail. Breakfast was included in the room rate and was a huge buffet with meats and cheeses, cereals and yogurt, vegetables. It was served in a beautiful paneled dining room. My only negative is the staff was just awful. Every person I came in contact with was totally indifferent and not at all helpful. From the woman at the check in desk, to the bartender, waitstaff, etc. I don't expect to be treated like a queen and I don't like leaving negative feedback but I wouldn't come back to the hotel for that reason alone.
We stayed in this hotel for 5 nights and I couldn't find any negative moment during the stay. Friendly and professional staff on reception; they always ready to help, Well done,guys! Testy breakfast with a good range of food. Private sauna for guest and it free of extra charge. Room was big enough with all required facilities. I would differently come back to this hotel next time and I would recommend "Europa Royal" for all my friends and family members! Thank you!
Good location, a beatutiful hotel. Although it is old, it is clean and feels like your are staying in a historical building. It was comfortable. The breakfast was very good having many options, the price was quite good.
Hotel is situated in very good location - the city center. Not far from bus and train stations, old town and Rigas Opera. perfect place if you want to visit Rigas Opera or old town. Rooms are desinged in art deco style, cosy and big enough, also with the touch of luxury. Beds are very comfortable. breakfest is also very good. staff friendly and helpful. I think, it is perfect hotel for weekend stay.
Amazing hotel for even more amazing price. Having breakfast in the magnificent restaurant made us feel like a king and a queen. The economy room we paid for was nothing like economy. It was a generous size room with lovely bathroom and even its own dressing room. Simply amazing and all for £35 a night
The hotel is in great location, good sized room, fast wi-fi and very good signal all around the hotel. Fast check in procedure. Wide choice in breakfast. Helpful staff. The colors of room wasn't in my taste.
Have you seen Grand Hotel Budapest? This is similar, only with better service and in good state of repair. Stunning architecture, with the staircase being the standout feature. Nicely decorated bar with a trick door. It's got the sort of style where you expect to be able to sit back with a bourbon and a cigar and to chat to Sinatra. Rooms are far less grand, but more than adequate for the price.
The historical building and place could be amazing. By such it's difficult to put the finger on why it's not amazing is difficult. . The hotel was refurbished but the designer didn't have a lucky day when it comes to colours, they don't exactly cheer you up. . The atmosphere somehow following this a bit depressed result. . Service is not for a 4 star hotel. . Something to work with
