4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed in this hotel for 1 night, room was clean and comfortable with charming green nightlights. Calm, very good located hotel, may be not the most modern one, but very good for the price we pay. Thank you for the helpful lady in reception for good service. Breakfast could be better.

Hotel Monte Kristo is located close to the edge of Riga Old Town. The Staff are friendly and welcoming and most helpful with any tourist information required or ordering taxis etc. We arrived very early for our check in and it was not a problem with a room made available immediately. Guests staying at the Hotel receive a 10% discount in the restaurant attached. All the tourist areas in Old Town are within walking distance of the Hotel, as are many restaurants and bars. Within a 5 minute walk there are both modern and traditional shopping areas and a very large covered market.

Great location, spotlessly clean, may be a little old but that just adds to its character. Staff are very helpful, fairly basic breakfast but more than adequate. Would definitely recommend this hotel. No need to get taxi from the airport the bus stop is just outside the back entrance of the hotel. Great location right in the heart of the old town plenty of bars and places to eat nearby as well as shops and sights.

The stay in the Monte Kristo boutique hotel made our visit in old Riga more enjoyable. We came only for a long weekend, and managed to see and experience much due to the fact that the hotel has great location. Breakfast is good, and the staff was welcoming. Highly recomended place.

Lovely place, right in the centre - easy access to restaurants, metro, buses etc. \Staff were friendly and helpful - printed out boarding passes and e-mails at no extra charge. WI fi is very good and free of charge. Not sure about parking as we did not have car. |We did not eat in the restaurant here as so many good places in the area, however a 10% discount is offered off your first meal and the prices are reasonable for the area. The room was warm and comfy and breakfast was very good. Staff were friendly (if not the fastest). Overall good value for money place to stay for a night or two!

The prices are attractive, the location excellent, the beds comfortable, the bathroom fine (apart from a fan motor screaming away at 90 dB) and the breakfast more than adequate. BUT BEWARE: SOUNDPROOFING IS NON EXISTENT. You may find sleep hard to come by if you don't use earplugs to protect you from doors banging, from lively midnight discussions outside your door in corridors, on the stairs, in the hotel entrance. As seems to be so common in Riga hotels, the breakfast room is dominated by a large TV screen blasting autotuned teeny-pop. Here at least they let you have breakfast in a quieter space! .

We stayed here for 3 nights and breakfast was included in the price. This hotel offers great value and more than adequate breakfast for most tastes. Located in the old city, its location is perfect for sightseers looking to visit the main tourist attractions around Riga. It is an quick easy taxi ride from the airport (€ 15inc tip with a Red Cab) and once there, conveniently positioned for trams and buses to other city locations. Taxis frequently wait for fare 100 yards from the hotel on the main thoroughfare so again that's very convenient for travellers. Our room was perfectly equipped for our needs and tea and coffee making facilities were provided along with minibar and snacks (price list in room). The hotel has a restaurant that seemed to offer a good range of food at competitive prices but we chose to eat out for no other reason than it was more convenient for us. The staff at the hotel were friendly, spoke good english and helpful. The room was serviced daily and clean and offered a comfortable bed for weary tourists. The location couldn't have been better and allowed us to explore all the main attractions easily. A must visit was the local market only a few hundred metres walk from the hotel. This hotel offered exceptional value and 3 nights B&B in a twin room for 2 people cost only €147.

Very good hotel!! At the entrance of old town and close to Riga's main attractions. Staff is helpful, breakfast is ok. There may be some noise from closing doors of next rooms, but it ok to sleep! I would stay again there.

Ideal location, dont think its a 4 star, maybe 3 + , was nice food, nice waitress, but girls on reception can smile and be more friendly! Sequrity guy can be more helpful, at least can carry heavy bags, no help. Been a bit noisy from guests upstairs on night time.

Ideal location right in the Old Town. Probably not 4 star as we know it but a good 3 star. Breakfast was strange. Salad, cake and veg! Restaurant was ok - solenke worth a try. One receptionist was excellent. Could not be more accommodating. Arranged our taxi, a take away breakfast and other things. Another less helpful Conclusion - good value
