The location of this hotel is very good, about 5 minute walk to the House of Blackheads. The staff are friendly and the breakfast is big with plenty of options (including Champagne). Our stay was enjoyable and we were pleased with the room we had. Some negatives are that there are not alot of tables at breakfast so if the...

Stayed for a long weekend with my wife, and liked the hotel a lot. A little bit old-fashioned style-wise, but a nice character to it all. Note that there is construction work going on on the other side of the entrance street, and they seem to be working 7-21 all days of week. Not terribly noisy, but some drilling, hammering,...

The good thing about this hotel is definitely the location and for that single reason I'd book it again. The reception was really helpful and very professional. Rooms on the other hand are pretty ordinary but does the work. The next bit is for those who might be choosing between two hotels in same location: Here they provide earplugs in...

We stayed at the Rixwell Old Rega Hotel for four nights and were generally very impressed with it. The interior is a pleasant surprise, given the slightly drab exterior, with a number of charming period features that give it a fascinating shabby grand feel. The room was comfortable, but somewhat cramped for two people and the facilities offered in the...

Stayed here for two nights. Great location in old Riga. Room was small but clean. The shower was surprisingly warm. Book in and check out were very quick and easy. Breakfast was lovely with something for everyone. I loved the pancakes and fizzy wine best. Would recommend this hotel.

Centrally placed for all aspects of Riga. Don't miss going to the market on Sunday, it sells everything in VAST quantities. Fish is abundant in most restaurants, being cooked very well. The travelling time from the airport was only about 40 minutes

Nice hotel near to coach station and market. Short walk to Old Town. Room with balcony was spacious and had welcome gifts for guests in the room. Free toiletries, bed jacket and slippers in the room. One of the few hotels which really had DBL bed not two separate beds pushed together. Wide choice and champagne on breakfast.

Good budget hotel in a great location! The room was small, but for the money, I'd go back. The staff was very friendly & Anna at the front desk was very helpful. The market was one street over & Old Town was a short walk. There also, was a parking lot nearby for our rental.
