Very central place to stay.

Review of Hotel Justus
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 31 May 2024via mobile
This hotel is very well situated with comfortable, well equipped rooms ( except no tea or coffee making facilities which we British like) . Our bath was absolutely huge. The decor is quirky and eccentric with some bare bricks and paintings directly into the plaster. We thought it was fun. The breakfast was of high quality but with a more limited range than other hotels we stayed in. The staff were friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

This a simple, clean, budget hotel. There was no air conditioning, so the room was sweltering at night. The breakfast was fine although any cold foods lacked anything to keep them cold while out. No one wants to eat warm yogurt, not to mention the food safety risks. Great location and staff was very nice.

Room tip: There was no air conditioning and the room was HOT.

Lovely little hotel, located centrally, in Old Town Riga. Front Desk is 24 hours and is extremely helpful. Their hotel breakfast has a few Gluten Free items, and worth doing if you are celiac or have a gluten allergy. Rooms are absolutely lovely, clean and quiet. Hotel is very walkable to attractions and tours, and felt very safe for a solo traveller.

Beautiful boutique hotel in the heart of Riga, we could not fault the hotel or the service we were given. The breakfast was lovely, the rooms were clean and the staff were friendly. If ever in Riga again I would stay there. So much character for a boutique hotel. Loved it.

Room tip: Try and go to Riga during their busier periods as a lot of things felt like they were closed maybe as we were out of season.

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.
