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.

Don’t be put off by some of the negative reviews ! This hotel is an absolute gem , excellent location, spotless, fresh and definitely worth the price you pay !
We were able to check in already at 7.00 am on the day of arrival after paying a very low extra fee .
The breakfast was fresh and there were many delicious dishes to choose from .
Personnel was friendly, everyone from the receptionist to the cleaning staff greeted us with a big smile on their faces .
Will definitely be back next time I’ll visit Riga !

Our room and stay was very comfortable. Located in the central heart of old Riga Town, this refurbished hotel and the staff were very friendly and helpful, especially for a family of three, travelling for the first time to the Baltic states. From breakfast to room cleanliness and assistance with booking tours to taxi services, we found everything was doable if you just ask. Our hotel was within walking distance of many historical monuments, large shopping centers, tram and bus services. The beautiful cobble stone streets, art nouveau museums and rigid structured buildings of former German, Swedish and Russian influence are reminiscent of how deep the Latvian history is and how much there is to learn about. Forums Boutique Hotel is a wonderful place to stay if ever visiting Riga.

Lovely Boutique Hotel !

I had a warm and cosy room which made my stay perfect: fresh and clean bathroom , comfy mattress and friendly and helpful staff .
Room is fully equipped with plenty of space and zones for rest and work / with many sockets to plug all devises .

Location is perfect, walking distance to any tourist attraction in Old City and 2 min to a main massive shopping centre.

Great value for money !
Highly recommended for tourists as well as for business travellers.
Thank you very much for taking such a good care of me!

Very easy check in, friendly, we used a private hire taxi, to get to the hotel, waiting at airport , no fuss.
The hotel has a lift , it’s very clean, and well presented, the room was clean, toiletries in bathroom and towels. The Tv needed never worked, never complained. As it’s not a big deal for us. The rooms are well heated, the window opens wide to keep it cool. Enough storage in room. Room cleaned everyday. Breakfast is continental, found something to eat everyday

Location is very good; It's very easy to reach to the hotel from airport with a bus. It's at the hearth of the Riga, and you could walk everywhere that you have to see. If you would like to use public transport, you could reach most of the lines in a very short walk. Breakfast is continental and very good. Room is clean and enough siz

Fast check-in, hotel is very close to the bus station. It's within 5 minutes walking distance between the bus station and the hotel. Room is beautiful with modern design. Bed & pillows are comfortable. Provides coffee & tea making facilities, safe box, hair dryer, toiletries. Free wifi & breakfast. Wifi signal in the room was strong. The hotel is located in the Old Town. It's within 2 minutes to the nearest shopping mall. There are many places to eat nearby. For muslim it is easy to find halal food since there are quite a number of halal shop nearby.

I had been renting Economy Double Room at Forums for a few days. The breakfast options are numerous and tasty, the staff is friendly, flexible and helpful. The place is mostly clean, thermally well-isolated, and the bathroom is really nice. The bed in the room was truly squeaky, as many here write, but it was nice to sleep in.

The location is wonderful - there are many sights, restaurants, clubs, shops and transport options one step away. Being a light sleeper, I needed to use earplugs a couple of times - the railroad is nearby, and especially noisy neighbors were up late one night.

I recommend the place. :)

Our room was on the fourth floor, balcony was litle and ment for smoking. 😝
Bed was missing the upper mattress ad it was hard as a stone. Walls between the rooms were thin as paper and in was not easy to sleep in the room becouse of the noice. Bathroom was filthy with brown spots😝.
Location was excellent, cant give positive feedback about anything else.

Great location for discovering the Old Town, and very close to the airport bus stop.

The staff were friendly, the room was clean and spacious enough. Although not a massive room, there was plenty of space for everything. There was desk and chair, suitcase holder and a kettle with mugs and tea and coffee provided. The bed was comfortable.

Plenty of options both hot and cold for breakfast, that was continuously refilled.

Really enjoyed my stay here.
