Very clean hotel in excellent part of town, very historical, next to St Peter's church. One thing to warn about is the level of noise at night from outside which made it unbearable on the Friday night (nothing on Saturday remarkably). Good breakfast, would return.

Room Tip: try and get on the top floor (due to noise)

This was a wonderful find, especially for the price. The whole places breathes history. It has kept its character. Nooks and crannies everywhere, spaces to sit and read. Loved it. Room was large. Sparsely furnished but more than adequate. View out of window was straight onto st peters church and the square. Did only have net curtain so not totally dark at night but I got used to that. Friendly helpful staff. Breakfast is at the other end of the courtyard shared with another hotel. Good choices (porridge in Latvia!!) in elegant surroundings. It is close to all the main sights and has a good choice of bars and restaurants close to hand. Lovely city.

Part of the convent complex in the square behind St Peter’s Church, this wonderful little hotel oozes history. Our room on the top floor had a view of the church and people rubbing the noses of the Bremen ‘town musicians’ statue. There is a modern, flashier hotel in the convent as well, but I am very pleased to have stayed where we did. The rooms are fairly basic (wooden bed and wood floors) but, after all, it is a 15th century building and there actually is plenty of space. Bring earplugs if you’re there at the weekend because “songsmiths” (that is to say hoons) will be vocal on and off through the night; earplugs in, we slept like babies. A brreakfast buffet is via a voucher at the other hotel and is fine if unremarkable. The idea that you actually get breakfast and pay a mere 60 Euro for a quaint room in the heart of Riga is remarkable.

Location of hotel was great, rooms with a view, quaint hotel with wonderful little nooks, friendly staff, close to everything. The city is clean, friendly, food is awesome. Good shopping, lots of history, and fun things to explore.
