Monte Kristo Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Location is perfect and within 5-10 minutes walking distance to all the main sights. The rooms are quite small but clean and cozy. We had room 225 which had a nice, deep bathtub and plenty of hot water. Large windows which opened to a park view. Breakfast included cereals, yogurts, cheeses, meats, pancakes, omelettes, fried and boiled eggs, vegetables, salad, juices, coffee, teas and was replenished while we were there in the dining room. Comfortable beds and pillows. If you are in Riga for a longer stay you will want to book a larger room but our room was just perfect for a short stay. You really can't go wrong booking the Monte Kristo.

After looking through other apps to find a good price on a weekend getaway, I found this place. The price for three nights was extremely good. The room was clean, all be it small and a little dated but was ok for a short stay. My only really criticism was the bed was pushed up against a wall meaning you could only get out one side. Breakfast is basic but more than enough to get you going in the morning. After landing the Taxi cost us €15 to the hotel and took 15 mins so that was easy. The real selling point is the location of this hotel!!! It is a short walk from all the Rīga old town attractions/Bars etc so for that the price is worth it.

Good quality room with all the facilities you would want in a city hotel. A short walk from the central market and bus/train station. Breakfast was nice, but get there early as it doesn't always get replenished when you eat towards the end of serving time.

This lovely, small hotel has perfect location. Its not 4/5 star hotel, but value is. Suite with own Sauna and Yacuzzi, 70€/night - that is good deal in this location. Second time in here without complains.

We stayed for 3 nights in an economy room. Economy in this case means without a window, but for 3 nights for £75, it is very good value for money. My only complaint is that without a window, being in charge of the temperature is a lot more important and unfortunately we couldn't turn down the radiator so we were too hot. Other than that, the room facilities were good, including a small fridge which was really useful. The shower was great. As other people have noted the walls do seem quite thin though and I could hear the person in the room above singing in the bath every evening. The receptionists were very helpful and the check-out time of 12pm was very reasonable, there is also a room to leave baggage. The room is very centrally located - it's a short walk to the central market, the train station, the parks and really everything you want to see in Riga.

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!
