This hotel is right on the corner of two fairly busy roads in what I would call the Embassy quarter of the town. The Art Nouveau area is very close by but the old town is about 20 minutes walk away. The front desk seemed in permanent chaos and nobody knew anything although one guy was very helpful with getting us on to WiFi. All in all the hotel was OK and fine for what we wanted, tho a bit further away from the City Centre than we would have liked. One small thing that should be quite easy to fix, our room had Viennese blinds which look fine but are rubbish at keeping out the light. At this time of the year in Latvia it is light very early in the morning but with the amount of light in the room it was almost impossible to stay asleep. We paid for the romantic package which included a dinner at the hotel. There was almost no atmosphere in the dining room, the food was OK tho nothing special.
Very satisfied with the hotel. Good service, nice spacious room, very good breakfast and very nice neighbourhood, just a short walk to Riga old town. There are many nice bars in a close by. Public parking is available in surrounding streets. Good value!
Great place to stay if you’re looking for value for money, great breakfast, location and peace and quiet. Lots of nice restaurants around the corner, park right in front of the hotel, lovely rooms, clean and comfortable beds. Excellent service! Will be back!
I was with my friend and we both liked so much staying here. Breakfast was really good! Hotel is about 2km away from Oldtown. Sometimes we take taxi to Oldtown, because it is not expencive (about 4€).
Quality, price and location of the hotel are super. Pictures of the hotel could be better ;-) they don’t really the good quality. Breakfast was excellent - fresh products and a good selection. Slept like a queen :-)
We enjoyed ourr stay in a large suite for the weekend. All was great (except the breakfast coffee...). A nice location by the park - not direcly at the center, but at 15 minutes walking distance to city centre.
Well located hotel with friendly atmosphere. Spacey rooms, tasty food. The ventilation in the congress room was poor. Breakfast had several choices and was also very tasty. The bar was open until needed and the service there was excellent.
It is always hard to know if your unseen choice of hotel is wise when you visit a city for the first time. We could not have chosen better than than the Monica Centrum. Its location is peaceful and necessitates a delightful short walk along the leafy park and picturesque canal to reach the heart of the old town. Our inward facing accomodation consisted of a lofty entrance area, leading to an elegant bedroom and a palatial bathroom. Everything was beautifully prepared and thoughtfully designed for maximum comfort. Aircon worked fine in the hot weather, and there was no noise at night. The breakfasts are generous and imaginative with a very wide choice of cooked and fresh items and the service is friendly and helpful throughout the hotel. Just a few points: The exterior drinks area can have very slow service. Don't get conned at the airport for an expensive taxi ride to the hotel. It should be 15 Euros. If the weather is good take the local train (30 mins) to the super sandy beach resort at Jurmala. We would have no hesitation is returning to the Monica Centrum on our next visit to this fascinating city.
The hotel is very clean and well presented although it would benefit from an update. Breakfast was varied and all of the staff we encountered were polite and helpful. We used the transfer service from the airport and as our flight arrived over 2 hours late, at midnight, we were really pleased that we had booked it as it provided a seamless transfer to the hotel. Our room was huge, with a pretty balcony, however, the air conditioning was poor and only just cooled the room. The road outside is busy and there is a lot of traffic noise, if the window is open. The hotel is close to the park and is about a 15 minute walk into the old town. There is a handy Double Coffee and local shop opposite. It was good value when we stayed.
Very good 4 night stay in the Monika Centrum. We used the hotel transfer from the airport and were welcomed warmly and allowed to check in early. Reception staff were very helpful with recommendations, directions and restaurant bookings -- our favourite was Forest. The hotel, although maybe slightly dated, was very clean and our room (a standard) was a good size with all amenities. The location is great being a short walk across a nice park to the old town. Breakfast was a real bonus offering a wide selection and good quality including smoked salmon. Very happy to recommend this hotel especially for the price paid.
