The hotel is very closely located to many of the sights in Riga. Very convenient to get to from the airport via taxi. The staff is very helpful and very service oriented and want you to enjoy your stay The rooms are decent sized for a European property although the bathroom was a bit small Breakfast had variety and they also made eggs to order for you. I enjoyed the multifruit juice Martina at the Front Desk was super helpful and got me a comfortable and quiet room since I wanted a room away from the elevator Would come back again.
The location was perfect, right next to St Peter’s Cathedral and House of Black Heads. Everything in the old city was within walking distance. The hotel is very new (opened in 2019) so everything was very modern and clean. Beds very comfortable and bathrooms very nice and modern. Room was spacious with a sofa. Best place to stay when visiting Riga!
This place was okay, but that's as far as I would go. Not having umbrellas for guests to borrow (while having umbrellas to sell) didn't exactly make a positive impression. The drink voucher for Hhonors diamond guests meant nothing to me. The gym wasn't well equipped, and the breakfast buffet relied too heavily on animal products. I also didn't like the fact that, despite being promised my invoice per email, I had to remind them a day after having left.
This hotel is perfectly located to explore Riga Old Town. Rooms are exactly as you’d expect from a Hilton. Breakfast is an extra cost but has a nice spread, with eggs to order. Riga is a great city, and many of the Old Town’s key locations are within walking distance. Would definitely stay here again.
This property is on the edge of old town so it's a good location. it's geared up as more of a business hotel than a tourist hotel. Bolt to/from the airport is 10-12€ and takes about 20 minutes. It's a nice property - the rooms are ok in size. It's quiet. The wifi is just ok - a little slow. The A/C was good. Breakfast (free for diamonds) was pretty good - better than the typical HGI. Staff are professional if not exactly warm and friendly. They have washers and dryers but the sign says each takes 2.5 hours (and I heard from another guest that it literally took 5 hours to do a load of laundry so there's that). Overall, it was fine. Next time I might pick a property geared more toward tourists. One tip - the Riga airport is very efficient. On departure I think an hour would be plenty - 90 minutes at most. …
The Hilton Garden Inn is located on the edge of Old Town about a one minute walk from the House of the Blackheads, Museum of Occupation and St. Peter’s Church. The view from my room was the backside of the House of Blackheads, which was pretty cool. The room was comfortable and modern, bathroom nice, gym equipped and restaurant/bar nice with good options! I didn’t mind this location even though it was on one edge of the Old Town, as it allowed me to explore and wander around Old Town and find my way to places like the central market, Freedom Monument, etc. I’d definitely stay here again!
Location is great, but that is about it. Hilton hotel in Riga can barely keep up to standarts and basic necessities, and is not reasonably priced whatsoever. Starting with parking, which is 20€ a day, its more like small extra land, which they call a parking lot. Barely enough for 10 cars, it was though to get to a spot and park, because cars were parked in no logical sense, there were no directions. They have underground parking, which they seemed unwilling to let you in, because apparently you ‘need assistance’ to get up and down and it’s not that easy. When we asked about access, after arrival on the first day, when we barely fit in the one last spot, they said ‘but you managed to fit in here!’ The mattress is rock hard and the pillows are so terrible, like I have never seen before, cheapest of the cheapest. Only drinking water available in the hotel shop downstairs(that they claim is reasonably priced, but it’s absolutely not), is the most expensive water bottles that you would usually find on a restaurant table, costing 5€ a liter. And finally, they have a warm water problem. If the hotel is full or you choose to shower in ‘busy time’(morning or evening) there is simply no warm water. This was a reoccurring issue over our stay and when we called reception after not having warm water on an October evening in Riga, when temperature is barely above 0•C, they simply said to wait for it. After 20 min of waiting and, once again, complaining that there still is no warm water, we were plainly told that there is nothing they can do because the hotel is full. We chose Hilton, even though the price was relatively high for staying in Riga(over 100€ a night), because we trusted in reputation and name of the chain, expecting a certain standart, however, it was not fulfilled whatsoever. Very disappointing stay, we tried to look over all the little issues, but lack of such a basic necessity as warm shower after a long day, was the last drop for us, so we checked out one evening earlier.…
Hotel was clean and staff were outstanding. Staff was particularly helpful in arranging our day tour to Rundales Palace. Hotel is perfectly located in Old Town to see/visit all the wonderful sites of Riga. Great stay!
This hotel is right in the middle of the old town. It is about a 20 minute taxi ride from the airport, or there is also a cheap bus. You can walk all over the old town which is very compact with everything on your doorstep.
Friendly welcome when we arrived at this lovely hotel and all the staff were smiley and friendly too. Our room was on the 6th floor with a view over the rooftops of the Old town Square and part of the River. Bed was huge and very comfortable. Ample clothes space, a coffee machine, kettle, fridge and a safe. Bathroomwas big with lovely large soft towels and plenty of toiletries. Breakfast was plentiful with lots of choice. We didn't dine here as there were lots of restaurants nearby so we could explore the very safe and lively area at night too. It might be worth noting the Tourist Office is located next to the Museum of Blackheads and you can get a map there of Riga. The Museum of Occupation, although harrowing, is definitely worth visiting. Riga is very easy to get around and none of the places we visited were more than 30 mins walk away.…
