Best thing about this hotel is it's location. It is in the old town, so you're minutes away from most popular attractions. It is also close to bus and railway stations and close to bridge to the other part of the city. Room that I had was small and clean, but the furniture and carpet are old. Bathroom was large and clean. Breakfast was good. It is expensive for the accommodation it gives but I guess you pay for the location.
Great location, in Old Town 3 minutes from bus stop from Airport and close by some real character bars and restaurants. We had superior room which was vey clean and comfortable, modern bathroom, all a good size, located at the rear so no real view but quiet. Very helpful and friendly staff happy to help with all your needs. Great choice of food at breakfast, served in basement. Lots of excellent museums, all well within walking distance, tell the story of a Country not well treated by their occupiers. Will return in summer to enjoy the hopefully outdoor culture.
The strength of this hotel is its rooms which are warm and very cosy with great hot showers, tea and coffee making facilities and a comfortable bed. We were very happy with our two double-sized single rooms. The hotel is very conveniently located, a few minutes walk from St Peters Church and Blackheads House. However, it is located on a somewhat run-down street of night clubs and first impressions were very disappointing. Having said that, we didn’t hear any noise from the street at night (but we were grateful to have been given rooms facing onto the interior courtyard). The hotel itself is not well sound-proofed. It is an old building and there seemed to be a lot of hard surfaces which carried the noise and this was disturbing as people came and went late at night and early in the morning. Staff were mixed-some very friendly and helpful, others indifferent. Breakfasts were mediocre. In general, top marks for the rooms but otherwise a bit disappointing.
We travelled to Riga with some friends and we all stayed in the St Peter's Hotel. Our friends had a suite up on the third floor which was amazing except it faced the street, but more of that later! We had a very comfortable double room facing the inner courtyard. It was very well appointed with bathrobes and slippers, a mini bar and coffee and tea making facilities. Even an electric kettle which was most unexpected but very much appreciated. We didn't eat in the hotel restaurant preferring to try some of the local restaurants, but the breakfast buffet was splendid, lots of lovely salads, cold meat and cheese - apart from the usual hot food, which of course was lukewarm. This seems to be a characteristic of most hotels both home and abroad, even the top end. The staff at the reception were very helpful and on the day of our departure looked after our suitcases as we were not travelling to the airport till 5.30pm. Riga itself is a delightful city with amazing architecture, particularly in the Art Nouveau area, but take the bus tour first and it will point you in the right direction. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Riga and think it would be a very nice place to visit in the summer as it has some splendid parks. As I mentioned at the beginning, the only fly in the ointment was the noise that emanated from the street on the Friday night and kept our friends awake till the early hours. I had read about this in a previous review so had asked for a room at the back, our friends were not so fortunate! However this wouldn't stop us giving this hotel an excellent rating. The secret is to go midweek!
we read the reviews about the noise so booked a Superior room at the back of the hotel. Sadly on arrival it turned out there had been a mix up with the booking company (they deny this) and our room had not been booked so they upgraded us to their apartments. These were lovely, spacious, clean and well equipped and smack in the middle of the Old Town so perfect for sightseeing. The problem came at night. The restaurants and bars turned into nightspots with seriously load music. This went on til 6am with no lowering of volume so no sleep was had. The windows provided no defence to the sound. A band then set up in a doorway at 1am and played bongos for 2 hours. We were told that the Old City is just very noisy at weekends and all hotels have the same issue so we sacrificed our 2nd night in the room and booked the Park Inn outside of the city for a perfect peaceful night, So in summary the hotel seemed OK but didn't sleep there, the apartments were great but don't go of a weekend unless you are planning to join the party in which case you don't need a room anyway!! Oh and breakfast was basic with a lot of very tired looking guests.
We just sent four nights at this charming little hotel and found it both welcoming and homely. The room was very spacious and clean, and seemed to have everything needed for a comfortable stay. The receptionists all smiled when we walked through, and we were welcomed on arrival and given some good tourist information. The room had bath robes and slippers provided, a kettle with teas and coffee with nice large cups, there was a safe in the wardrobe which was free to use. The bathroom was cleaned each day to a high standard and toiletries replenished as needed, clean towels etc. The breakfast was very good, with some lovely salads, omelettes, cereals, yogurts, fresh fruit, breads, cheeses, cold meats etc. The hotel is in an old historic building which is rustic and charming. Both the restaurant and bar and the breakfast room had attractive stone walls and character. The hotel is minutes walk from St Peters church and the old town, so is in the ideal situation. Our room faced onto the front street of the hotel, and the only small complaint we would make is that on a Saturday night there is a bar just along which played very loud music most of the night! However, that didn’t in any way spoil our stay here. On our last day our flight was very early in the morning, and the hotel arranged a transfer for us to the airport and gave us a wake up call. They also provided us with a packed breakfast to eat at the airport. We would definitely stay here again if we returned to Riga, and would recommend the hop on hop off city bus, and a train trip out to Jurmala by the sea. We also tried and enjoyed the Garden and Provence restaurants, both of which can be found nearby on the Main Street just along from St Peters Church.
We stayed 3 days in St Peter's. We had junior suite which was nice , clean and quiet. Breakfast is also good .The location of the hotel is perfect. We recommed Milda restaurant close to the hotel and Verdant Eco Spa as well.
We stayed one night, and found this hotel to be excellent value - less than £40 for an ensuite room, with breakfast - in a great location - same street as the Folkklubs Ala Pagrabs cellar bar, and the jazz bar Trompete. Room was tidy, as was the ensuite. Breakfast was excellent - downstairs in the cellar. Our room was overlooking the inner courtyard, and was quiet at this time of year.
Decent hotel in good location near the St. Peter’s church. Bear in mind though that the hotel is neighboured by a couple of bars/nightclubs, so if you are a light sleeper this might not be the right choice for you - this did not bother us though. The restaurant in ground floor looked charming with the fireplace, but we did not try the food. In general, the facilities and service do not meet the 4-star rating. Rooms are large, we stayed in junior suite, but already a bit worn out and out-dated. Luckily the bed was new and comfy. The reception staff is helpful if you need something but isn’t particularly friendly; you barely get a hello, so don’t expect to get a smile. The staff in the breakfast room seem to be professional in ignoring customers. We weren’t even greeted in any way during the two mornings we had breakfast there.
Let's start with the positives. The superior room on the top floor was warm, spacious and quiet. The location is excellent, right in the centre of the old town. Now for everything else. Our welcome on arrival was cold and customer service did not improve from there. Not one member of staff so much as smiled at us, asked how our day had been, or if we had everything we need. Basic expectations, but none met. Breakfast was dim, with cold eggs and bacon. We chose to eat our after our first morning. Our room was without a plug in the sink so shaving was out of the question. The complimentary soap bottles were half used and left over from the previous guest - delightful. The bedsheet was a size too small for the quilt and looked and felt very silly. There was a price list in the room for every item should you break it. This left us on edge the entire time. One day our room was not clean and we had to ask for fresh towels and loo roll. Will not be recommending, nor will my partner who is a travel agent.
