Reviewed today NEW

Good sized hotel, about 55 rooms, which is small enough to be personal Nice one bedroom suite on the top floor - extremely quiet and warm. The bar and lobby area could do with some mild updating, especially to match the carpet on the floors above.

Thoroughly well earned 5 stars. Professional, friendly. Runs on greased rails. This is a lovely part of town and the Grand Palace is a great spot to relax in between on Riga's many attractions. The bar is a haven for smokers, especially when there's as a blizzard, as there was. I don't smoke but the faint smell didn't bother me.... More

This was quite an experience for us. Not only is this an unspoiled jewel of a city which makes me almost regret to point it out to so many people. The hotel manages to combine grandeur with very personal service. I can only but give it a big thumbs up. I only regret not having tried dinner there.

The Palace Hotel in Riga deserves the "Grand" in its name. Service, local knowledge and friendliness of the staff is 5 Star. Worth mentioning is the Pils Bar which invites to feast in the homely atmosphere of a princely estate.
