Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Nice and cozy hotel in the heart of Riga. The atmosphere, design of rooms and service is something that gives joy for the whole trip. Service and kindness of people working in the hotel should be pointed out separately. Leo and nice lady at the reception were extremely helpful and kind. I will be glad to stay at Hotel Gutenberg during my next visit to Riga.

The best impressions I have about the wonderful stuff team in this hotel. They were very professional and also helpful and friendly, and that made my stay in this hotel like at home. Also breakfast was very nice. Room was classic with a little bit of manor house style. And of course location in the old town is great and gives a special feeling of history touch.

It is difficult to categorize the Hotel Gutenbergs: it is a boutique hotel, with less than 50 fascinating rooms; it is an historic hotel, one of its conjoined buildings dating to the 17th century; but it is also an affordable hotel, especially for a short break. I loved my stay there, and would seek it out again. Now ... the buildings are old, the floors are not always flat, there is a faint mustiness to the place. Plumbing and bathrooms seem to be modern, however, without intruding on the historic aesthetic. Further, the location is perfect for exploring Vecriga, the complimentary breakfast superb, and the staff helpful and attentive. A particular shout-out goes to the multi-lingual front desk attendant during the days. There is no parking to speak of, but the hotel is easily accessed by bus from the airport, and the train station is a not uncomfortable walk away. The rooftop restaurant is well regarded, but there are superb restaurants all around the hotel. Again, I will seek the Gutenbergs out again.

A winter stay at the hotel was wonderful but with cold temperatures the rooms where also a bit chilly. With wonderful historical buildings also sound insulation is a bit thin. However the overall experience is very rewarding and the Reception service is superb. The breakfast staff might be a bit more welcoming. The next door Christmas Market is a great bonus!

The hohel is situated in a narrow street in the old town of Riga. And the hotel tryes to keep the old school style. No electronic card keys but a standard key with a heavy golden book (Gutenberg!) attached to the key, that reminds you to leave the key at the overwhelmingly nice service desk, before leaving the premises. All over the hotel you find visible wooden that assures you about the originality of this beautiful building . The interior styled sameway, with heavy carpets, classic furniture and oil paintings on the wall, However, the nice conservative style is disturbed by a few design flaws. The soap is marked "Rock Your Body" but this hotel is nowhere rock'n roll. Parts of the breakfast restaurant have constructions in new wooden materials, which should have been covered by some old wood to match the beautiful original wooden pillars, battens and planks visible. But it is all just design flaws, and who else thinks about that when you are serviced with the most friendly and helpful hotel staff.

Excellent hotel. Rooms are comfortable and well equipped. Breakfast was tasty and a good variety. Location is walking distance to everything in old town.. What makes this hotel stand out is the staff and service though, they go above and beyond to make guests happy. Special thanks to Linda who drove me to the bus station because it was raining and I could not find a taxi! Will be back. Thank you :)

Hotel Gutenbergs was our choice due to its perfect location next to Riga Dome Cathedral, short walk away for the Half-marathon starting point. We were impressed as soon as stepping into the lobby. Super professional and friendly reception, not only allowed us to check-in early, but also offered us an extra breakfast! Our room on 3rd floor, small yet comfy, clean with lovely vintage vibe. Sadly we didn't have time to try out the rooftop restaurant, the view looks amazing! Definitely will book again next time returning to Riga.

Lovely interior and atmosphere, in the heart of the old town. Room was ok. Room service was not great, water pressure very weak and hair drier either snail slow or overheated in 2min. Never replaced the empty loo roll when cleaning the room, and no spare was available. Toiletries were 3 in 1, just unacceptable. The food was ok.

Location is perfect, not in the middle of old town. Nice, cosy and romantic hotel with perfect service minded staff. Room was not standard Hotel room, it was unusually "homie". Bathroom was clean and big enough big. Bed sheets and bed ware good quality. Breakfast was well presented and fresh.
