Monte Kristo Hotel4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
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
An excellent location in the heart of the old town of Riga. No more than a 5min walk away from sights and restaurants. The hotel is quite large and has its own restaurant too. Did not try breakfast as was away early to catch a flight. Our twin room was fairly small, as were the narrow beds, but were comfortable and had a good sleep. We both found the room very warm but just opened the window slightly and problem solved. Room was clean as was the shower room. Staff were nice enough and booked us a taxi in the morning. A very pleasant stay.
I chose this hotel because it was in the Old Town and very near to the bus station as we were arriving from Vilnius by Lux Express. The hotel turned out to be an excellent choice for us. It is in fact a few minute walk from nearly everything, less than five minutes from the bus station, about the same from the train station, the central market and is in the Old Town. Our room was clean and nice, had good Wi-Fi, television with English channels and a good bathroom. The hotel has a nice restaurant and a good breakfast was included with our room. The hotel serves as an excellent location for exploring Riga.
Riga was a journey i will always remember the old mister gal building ,and cobble stone lanes and square, the food and the beautiful flower markets of seafood, meats, cheese and flowers in old huge wharf buildings. that went along the river foe acres,the oldest pub near Monte Kristo hotel which will cook you a dinner at 11pm at nite a soup to die for an a great host jazz ,music ,performers on street corners ,old medevil past turn in to nite restaurant with the old theme and musical entertainment, a every lush county side of wild flowers and beautiful forest
My room was clean and comfortable although the 6 foot wide bed left a very narrow passage each side of the bed with no space for bedside tables. The bathroom was also clean and tidy. Breakfast was more than adequate with a good choice of foods available. The hotel is very close to the old town and also excellently situated for public transport. It was easy to walk to many of the places of interest in Riga.The staff were friendly and helpful. I would stay at the Monte Kristo again if I return to Riga.
WHAT WE LIKED.....Old world charm, with beautiful decor and features throughout. Loved it !! Very clean, and in an excellent position, within the Old Town, but in a quieter street. Room was comfortable, although rather cramped, as was the bathroom (wasn't a problem though, as we spent very little time in it) The bed was King Size though ! Tea/Coffee facilities in the room. Free safe, which was nice. I was given a small bottle of wine and a card, for my 60th birthday, which was a lovely gesture (Thank you) Friendly and helpful staff. Buffet breakfast was adequate. We will stay here again, if we return. Thank you to all the staff :-) WHAT WE DIDN'T LIKE.....Breakfast choice, had a good variety, but not so well catered for us Brits !! No bacon, or normal sausages, just frankfurters, which doesn't appeal at breakfast time !! Only a couple of cereal choices. But saying that, we still enjoyed a plentiful breakfast. It's just cultural differences e.g. Salad....I love this for lunch or dinner, but it seems alien to me, for breakfast (even though it's a really healthy choice !!) Dining room / bar in the cellar, was charming, but too cramped. Although you do have the choice of using the outside terrace area.
Hotel is near the bus station so it is quite convince to go there with not so many suitcases. Not very long distance to go. Hotel looks more interesting as it is inside. We had nice room but without window view, it was not comfortable to be there long time. Good breakfast but room had so many tables there has hardly the space to turn around. Staff was quite helpful and nice.
