Radisson Blu Daugava Hotel4.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Our family (2 adults, 2 children) stayed in this hotel in October. The price for a family room was a good deal and hotel had a decent restaurant and a bar for the times we did not have energy to walk to the old town while it was raining. The staff were very friendly and helpful, but the hotel itself and our room had some wear and tear from the past years. And again, something that happens very often during our family travels, we had booked the room for 4 people, had the extra bed and towels again for two people. Not a major issues, but a simple logistical issue that should not be too difficult for the hotel to figure out when bringing in the extra bed into the room. Wifi in our room did not always work as expected, but it did work in the lobby. The gym and the pool were in excellent condition and the hotel restaurant was also decent. For those who are planning to see the old town of Riga, it takes about 15 minutes walk across the river to get to the edge of Old town. Taxi is only few minutes and very cheap. The guest parking was somewhat inconvenient, even though close to the hotel.
An excellent hotel right by the river, a short walk to the Old Town. Nice rooms and beds/bedding, staff helpful and multi-lingual. Food was good also, drinks happy hour between 5-6pm. Would visit again
What was good 1. Location is very good, you are in the Old Town once you cross the bridge. The other side of the Daugava is actually a very interesting neighbourhood. 2. Closer to the airport, no problems with the traffic. 3. Price was cheap. What was bad 1. The hotel is very old, rooms were very basic even in 1992. Although very clean, now it is not a pleasant stay: you have to try hard to close the door properly, the old fan is yellow with age and is barely blowing, no safe in the room. 2. The door is paper thin, you can hear everything that happens in the long corridor. 3. Internet was not working (for the first time during my 20+ stays in Radissons around Europe), I was told on the phone «There was a note when you checked-in» — Soviet style service. Avoid (even for somewhat low price). There are much better Radissons and Park Inns in beautiful Riga.
I liked the location as it is not in the busy old city center but just across the river. They have a bicycle rental place just in front. Rent a bike and explore !! Excelent breakfast included in the room price
Thank you very much for your exceptional service and beautiful room, where I stayed during my visit to Riga. Great views of the City, good and safe atmosphere and exceptional service from one particular member of the team Kaiva. With very best wishes, your guest.
Had our flight cancelled so the airline booked us here. The room was tiny and had seen better days, the bathroom was shabby and the decor was very dated. In the part where our room was there was a large atrium which amplified the smallest of noise. The room doors sprung closed so hard that the constant loud banging disturbed our sleep. A long walk to the city across the river bridge. A very unpleasant stay.
We visited this hotel last weekend and thought it was very good. After booking into our room (on the third floor) we asked for a higher one, for a better view and were given one on the 6th floor, where the view was even better. Unfortunately later that night we found that the bath mixer tap wasn't working properly, so were offered a room on the 7th floor, again with a great view. We also received drinks vouchers for our inconvenience. The rooms were all a decent size, clean and well equipped, although a safe would have been a nice addition. Items from the mini bar were VERY over priced. Breakfast was very good, with a great selection of foods on offer. The hotel has a health Spa, with a decent gym, but sadly the water in the pool could have been a lot warmer. It's only a 10 minute walk across the river into the old city, but the hotel provides complimentary taxi rides and it's also possible to book taxis to the airport (for 15 Euros) and get this added to your bill. We'd definetely use this hotel again in the future.
Hotel facilities are good, breakfast is good. However I paid for a business upgrade room, and whilst the room size is good, it just needs the furniture and decoration updating. I don’t think the wall paper in my bathroom had been changed since the 80s. Staff are really good, very helpful. I’d probably look for somewhere else next time.
A real disappointment. It is absolutely not the thing that You can think 4 star Radisson Blu should be. Really old, worn out. At the time of booking, nothing were said about the breakfast, during the check in they asked extra 15€. Unreason, I chose this hotel was the sport club. But the same thing with it, really worn out. Sauna were cold. Couldn't use the pool, because there were some ladies pool gymnastics at same time. Standard room has the view to nowhere. Bad.
Pretty much every aspect of the hotel, the pictures on booking.com are false advertisement I was very disappointed with the room I was given. When I went down to ask the receptionist can we change room he answered by saying that there was only one other room available in the hotel I had no problem paying the extra money for an upgrade. Although I checked on booking.com after and there was a choice of about 6 different rooms, so that would have meant I could have paid between 80 euro and 180 euro for the same room according to the receptionist. The rooms are very dated in bad need of a renovation. Also the walls seem to made of paper as I could hear the people next door having a chat about what their plan for tomorrow was while I was trying to fall asleep. Overall very disappointed, radisson blu has made such a big name for itself in the world and I felt like I was staying in a maximum 2 star hotel not 4. Will never ever come back again. The only good thing in this hotel was breakfast.
