Cute Rooms and Great Location

Review of Hotel Justus
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 13 Apr 2024via mobile
The hotel has value for money in the old town area of Riga. Check in was smooth and we were able to get into our room quickly to drop off our bags and get to Arena Riga for an ice hockey game with limited time to get there. The location is very central to the sites of Riga's old town and there are some very good restaurants nearby. There are quite a few convenience stores and souvenir shops nearby but they close fairly early. The hotel has a very interesting feeling to it with exposed brick walls and original/restored wood beams and stairs. We appreciated that it also had an elevator to get to the top floor we stayed on.

We booked the twin room and had a pleasant stay and the room was quiet enough to get a good night's rest despite the bars nearby. The beds were comfy but the pillows were a little thin. The room had a fully stocked mini bar with decent prices which would help if we got desperate for drinks. There was a large wardrobe and a small work desk in the room too. There were also plugs conveniently placed around the room so we could get all our devices charged. The bathroom was quite large and we appreciated the hot shower and towel warmer. They provide handsoap and a body/hair gel for the shower. The rooms have air conditioning and the windows open to help with the stuffiness. The twin rooms have a slanted ceiling so my short wife had the bed on the slanted side and had no issues.

The breakfast was very good and we enjoyed the variety of food brought out both mornings. They had hot items which changed a bit each day and included an egg omelette, bacon, potatoes, a Latvian pancake and sausages. There was a good spread of cold items too and we are sure a vegetarian would be satisfied with the offerings of vegetables, cheeses, devilled eggs and fruit. The coffee machine made a very good hot chocolate and they also provided juice and water with breakfast. There is a bar behind the check in counter that is open to hotel guests and a nice seating area in the lobby too if you're looking for something more later.

There is a sauna at the hotel but we weren't sure if it was open during our stay or what time it did open because there were no hours posted and we didn't get a chance to ask the staff. There is very limited free parking near the hotel and it seemed like the same local parked in front of the hotel each day. We would recommend taking the bus from the airport if you have the time but if you're in a hurry Bolt is pretty affordable in Riga to get around. There are car rentals north of the hotel and Bolt works in old town to book electric scooters and cars which was pretty convenient during our visit in Riga.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for taking the time to share such a detailed and positive review of Hotel Justus! We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us, from our convenient location in The Old Town to our unique and cozy rooms with exposed brick walls and original wood beams.

It is wonderful that you found our breakfast offerings satisfying and that you appreciated the variety of hot and cold items available. We are also glad to hear that you found our beds comfortable, the room amenities convenient, and our staff helpful.

We apologize for any confusion regarding the sauna hours and the limited parking situation. We will ensure that this information is communicated clearly to our guests in the future. But in general sauna is available, you just have to inform us at least one hour before you would like to use it. About the parking, as we are located in the old town, there are two good options for parking, one is Europark which is located on the other side of the old town, 5-7 minutes walking distance to Hotel Justus, and other option is public paid parking on 11 Novembra Krastmala, 3-5 minutes walking distance to Hotel Justus.

We appreciate your recommendation and your kind words about Hotel Justus and for the excellent feedback. We are looking forward to welcome you back for another pleasant stay when you are in Riga.

Best regards,
Einars Klukovics
Front Office Manager.

Great location and really lovely hotel. Quirky and unusual but still warm and welcoming. Family room was perfect for 3 of us. Nice little mini bar that’s not too expensive. Able to store luggage on the day we check outs staff were helpful. Breakfast was a good mix. Not sure about the coffee but might just be personal taste. Overall a lovely stay.

Breakfast is a bit chaotic, only one coffee machine that’s near water machine and door to kitchen and there are always queues.

Sometimes waiting for tables.
Rooms generally quiet , sometimes a little noise when bars close

Hotel Justus is in a fantastic location to experience the Old Town with everything you want to explore and visit within a few minutes walk. Moreover, there are bars, restaurants and cafes on the doorstep. Rest assured, this does not cause any noise disruption - the hotel was silent. The staff were an absolute asset to the hotel - all were very friendly, polite, attentive and considerate. If ever there were issues, the staff would deal with them quickly. They truly made you feel welcome, and there was always someone on the reception happy to answer your questions, as well as provide a map that showed key tourist attractions and information - this was particularly useful to navigate tourist attractions. Around the reception area downstairs, there were plenty of comfy sits to read or people watch. The temperature inside the hotel was always warm despite the autumnal nip and rustic brick work design. The interior design of the hotel was both rustic and elegant, and details a history of what preceded the current site with interesting items to be found in the corridors. This made it feel special. Breakfast was overall nice, however the coffee was very bitter and there could’ve been more choice. It was also a shame that there was no kettle or tea and coffee within the room. Nevertheless, the soaps provided were nice amenities. The rooms themselves were clean, but the beds did feel cheap and were not particularly comfortable. Despite this, cleaners were regular in the mornings and kept the room tidy and would replace towels. The view from the room that overlooked the street is worth a mention since it presented a beautiful art nouvelle style building opposite. Honestly, for the price this hotel and locality was excellent. If not for the bed, room amenities, breakfast and coffee, it would’ve been a 5 star review!

We LOVED this hotel. The location is amazing and the staff is too. Everyone in our group liked their rooms, finding them clean and comfortable. The hotel is unique in its style and furnishings. Very boutique and charming. Within walking distance to just about anywhere in and around Riga.

Room tip: If street sounds bother you, request a room on an upper floor or bring a sleep sound app.

Enjoyed our stay here right in a perfect location to walk into the Old Town. The hotel has a quirky cozy feeling and the staff are delightful and friendly. The lobby is nice to sit with big comfy chairs. Our room overlooked the town and had remnants left of the brick in the building. Beds comfy and we requested 2 pillows .:-)
Tea facilities provided. Room was spacious and comfortable. A shout out to the housekeeping staff for exemplary work. Breakfast was good . Enjoyed the hard boiled eggs and potatoes as well as the green mixed salad and pancakes. Great stay!

Room tip: Upper floors for quieter nights. Elevator access. No parking.
