Nice central location, good staff and service, room spacious with all the facilities you need, nice size bathroom with good shower and heated floor, public room nicely decorated with lovely old features
We stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed the hotel very much. Good value for what you pay. If I had to be critical, it was that the breakfast was luke warm and the the hot water should be regularly changed. Other than that, we had a good stay.
I visited this hotel for a one day trip to Riga. The hotel is situated in a wonderful location, a 5 minute walk from all the main streets. The room was good, although, the bathtub might need a renovation.
A good stay for a downtown business or leisure trip.The location ia absolutely central. The old fashioned building has definitely some glamor. This was a part of a package deal of WIZZAIR and the cost of it was very reasonable.
make riga a choice in your travel plans - it is a jewel to be treasured!!! the europa royale is centrally located and a walking dash away to the wonderful "old city"; the hotel staff were great in taking care of my comforts ... they even took in an extra heater when the room tempt diminished; i sure warmed up to their inclusive breakfast - excellent! i stayed six days and was made most welcome as part of their community; you would love this place with the lovely gardens across the street
The side entrance and the small reception desk did not give us an inkling to the beauty of this mansion built in the 19th century. The classical façade, the winding stairs, the marquetry on the pale wooden floor, stucco and mouldings on the painted ceiling all speak of the magnificence of this wealthy family's home before it was converted into a hotel. It was, according to our guide who met us at the lobby, the social and cultural center of Riga in its time. The breakfast spread was unbelievable in quality and variety, truly a feast for the palate and the eyes! If only the fading beauty of the interiors could be spruced up, this hotel could attain its former glory. If only the receptionists would practice smiling and looking less sour, it could have made that rainy day in Riga more bearable.
Overall a pleasant experience - central location, great service from staff (both prior and under our stay), large and clean rooms in a beautiful old building, great breakfast. On the downside - quality of sleep was dissapointing. Good beds, but poor quality pillows and blankets, plus central ventilation system was a real nuisance - constant humming noise you cannot get away from.
Unfortunalely the breakfast starts at 8 at the weekend so if you are on a business trip you cant eat in the morning. Otherwhise would be a great place for the price. Should be more flexible with breakfast times.
This is the classic pre-war mansion of an extremely wealthy family converted into a hotel. The rooms have high ceilings and the public space is ornate. Each hotel room is varied. This is not a cookie-cutter hotel. The larger rooms are spacious by any measure. The smaller rooms are comfortable with cupboards, desks and small desks. The breakfasts are sumptuous northern European feasts. The hotel is conveniently located to the university, Old town and transportation.
We stayed at this hotel for four nights in room 105, which, weirdly enough, was in a corridor accessed through the dining room up a small flight of stairs. The room overlooked the small courtyard used for parking guests' cars (15 euros a day). Beds were good, heated bathroom floor, good-sized room, very quiet, good internet. The breakfast was very good (lots of cold fish, meats, fruit, yogurt, veggies, bacon, sausage, eggs...), although the dining room was pretty crowded on the weekend. The hotel is an old upper class house, and parts of it show how fine it must have been years ago (the dining room is still fancy), but hallway carpets are worn and some things need updating. However, we liked it and the location was good, about 20 minutes by foot to the centre of the old town with choice of restaurants.
