Good location, good room rate

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 16 Nov 2023via mobile
Old Riga Hotel Vecriga is situated in a good location in he old town of Riga and walking distance to most attractions, restaurants and bars in the area. The room is very clean but old style. Bathroom has a bathtub. The hotel has a small courtyard and the stairs going to the hotel rooms depicts the charm of the splendid past. However the carpet needs to be replaced since it’s already worn out. The hotel in general is safe and nice and can be recommended to tourists on a budget. The room has the basic amenities that one may need.
Date of stay: October 2023

Lovely little hotel in the Old Town of Riga. A short walk to all the sights. We had the room in the loft, which was very quiet. Clean. Friendly and helpful staff. They were very accommodating to our constantly changing plans.

The only shame was that there was no mini bar in the room and the local tipples are really nice to try. But if you like to go out drinking in the evening, then that will not be a problem for you. I also didn't manage to work out how to switch on the fridge so as to have my own drinks in the room.

For breakfast there is a really good bakery nearby, Martina's Bekereja.

Thank you, boys and girls! I would gladly stay with you again for my next trip to Riga.

Room tip: Ask for the room in the loft. It's really quiet.

The hotel is located perfectly in the old town in Riga (mention: if you arrive there by car, book a pareking lot before your arrival). The service is perfect and very individual, the owner managed bookings for visits and gave us good recommendations for restaurants in the area. Of course also ideas for sites to see. Breakfast was packed in individual plates (COVID-19-conform) and all in the hotel was clean and tidy.

Good, very clean, nice-sized room in the old part of Riga, although under the rafters so no view although there were skylight windows. Great double-bed for single use, a really good night’s sleep. Electric kettle and TV although with less channels than in Daugavpils! Very helpful staff.

We loved the hotel. Great location in the most beautifully restored old town. Fab breakfast and restaurant. No complaints. A gem of a hotel in a gem of a city. The room was clean and comfy and very quiet.

The location was ideal.Breakfast was good,along with the lady serving who was very pleasant,and made us very welcome.
Room was clean Bed was comfortable,
However,our room No 21,overlooked the street outside,which is a shortcut between two major streets.The room was very warm even with radiators turned off we did stay in January and even though it was quite cold outside we had to have the window open but found this was way too noisy ,so our sleeping was very disturbed
There is obviously a noise of people walking at all times,including in the early hours.
Also the hotel advertises complimentary tea and coffee in the room,and that guests are encouraged to speak with reception if they require more of anything.However,when we approached reception regarding some milk for the room we were told there was none,due to the onsite restaurant being closed.
The onsite restaurant Sale N Pepe,where you go for your breakfast was closed for the holidays.
Admittedly the lady at breakfast,gave us a small jug of milk,but really we had no way of storing it,and found it frustrating after a day walking sightseeing etc coming back and having no facilities to have Tea of Coffee,if you require milk like we did.
We asked a couple more time but was told that there was none as the restaurant was closed and they couldn't help us.
Also No 21 has the cleaning cupboard next door.There is definitely an smell as you come out of the door.
As this cupboard was right next door every sound could be heard when someone was in there,so not ideal.

Room tip: Our room No 21 overlooks a small narrow cobblestone walking street,which is busy 24 hours,even through the night,so this room is noisy.
