Liked almost everything - nice bar downstairs (absolutely recommended at cold autumn evenings! :)), free Internet at lobby, polite and helpful staff, airport shuttle at reasonable price, heated floors in bathroom, very nice and bright rooms (for a 3* hotel). Location is not central, but as you go straight ahead from the cathedral (which is opposite to the hotel entrance...

I was going to book the Hotel Albert, but this hotel flagged a special offer of £134 for 3 nights including breakfast. The hotel has an old exterior but inside it is all modern. It was easy to find, we got off buss number 22 in the centre of Riga and walked for 10 minutes, it is near the Russian...

We stayed in the Hanza hotel for 3 nights in August and I did find it to be a lovely, very clean hotel. The reception staff were lovely as were the bar staff. I did think it was a little out of the way though, it is a good 10 minute walk to the main old town, which wasnt really...

Arrived at hotel to be told there was a 'water' problem - moved to Albert (excellent). Receptionist at Hanza said we could remain at the Albert if we wished but this was not so as we were transferred back to Hanza after 2 days. 2 other guests were told same. First night back at Hanza LOUD music went on until...

My mother & I spent a wonderful week at the Hanza. The beautifully refurbished building was just 10 minutes from Old Riga - close enough for an easy walk through the Central Market but far enough away for peaceful, quiet evenings. Our room was spotless, fresh and had large windows to let in the morning sunshine. Air conditioning was excellent...

This is undoubtedly the best bargain I've ever paid for a hotel: 35 pounds per night from Expedia for a 2-night stay! As such, I was a little worried about how it may turn out. As it turned out, I did not need to worry! The room was fairly large, spotlessly clean, functional, and comfortable. The bathroom too was extremely...

Stayed at the Hanza Hotel for 4 nights at the end of June 08. The hotel is in the Moscow district of Riga which is about a 10 minute walk from the old town. We walked through the Central Market each day to reach the old town which is a beautiful walk as you can see the HUGE market in...

There's nothing wrong with this hotel, we just couldn't get enthusiastic about it. Location is quite good - about 10 minutes walk from the old town, the other side of the main market, and quite quiet. The desk staff were helpful. The room itself was a good size and spotlessly clean. The furthnishings were ok - somwhere between minimal and...

Dear Sir, Thank you very much for the comments on our hotel! We would like to inform that there is difference between taxi fares in Riga by different taxi companies. You can always see fare on taxi; meter always should be on and always ask for a receipt. Also time of day and possible traffic jams influence cost of taxi....
