Rooms are lovely, staff are helpful and very friendly, they have a good level of English at the reception. The breakfast included in the price is amazing, would highly recommend anyone who wanted a nice hotel on a budget. About 15 minute walk to the Laima clock/ centre of Riga.

This hotel is really pleasant and the beds were decent. The hotel is very outdated, but I am from the UK so our style I guess is different.

Our party of four friends decided on a Christmas market break to Riga. We stayed here for 3 nights & couldn't fault it.

Stayed here for 3 nights and the hotel was perfect for us. Location: just outside the Old Town but an easy walk to all the tourist spots. Didn't use public transport at all but there is a bus stop just outside the hotel. Taxi from airport is around 14euros. Staff: We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful...

My wife and I stayed at The Rixwell Gertrude for three nights - returning to the UK today. The Gertrudel is about 15 minutes easy walk to the Old Town of Riga. It was spotlessly clean with really helpful staff. The breakfast buffet was delicious - served between 7.00 and 11.00 weekdays - and what a selection.....cereals, eggs, bacon, sausages...
