We spent 6 nights in Riga at the Hotel Justus. We had a suite with small sitting room, bedroom and bath. While comfortable the rooms definitely lacked charm. Furnishings, pictures looked like something from a yard sale 50 years ago. The beds were comfortable but with one meager pillow each. The bathroom was odd shaped with a large brown/ gold...

A great hotel right in the heart of Riga. Could not have asked fro a better hotel. Very clean throughout and a great breakfast to set you up for the day. Well maintained with some thoughtful ways of bringing a building to life.

The interior of the hotel is quirky and cool. I really like the interior that's why I booked this hotel. The location is very good to check out the city. Very convenient. However I must say the ladies at the reception desk are not too friendly. They had that annoyed look on their face all time. You are in customer...

The breakfast has many choices with good quality of food. The design of the hotel is fun and quirky with good use of the old architecture of the...

We were so happy with our hotel choice for our 2 nights in Riga. Hotel Justus is perfectly located within the old town. It has a great quirky charm to it, with a mix of old features mixed with Banksy style artwork. The reception staff were helpful and friendly. Our room (301) was large, clean and spacious with a lovely...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Four-star boutique Hotel Justus is located in the very of the old town of Riga, literally a few steps away from the famous Dome cathedral, within the architectural area protected by UNESCO as a part of world heritage. The immaculate renovation of the historical building was completed by April 2009, and so today the authentic facade conceals 45 cosy rooms uniquely designed to embrace the charm of genuine brickwork combined with fascinating art objects, antique as well as contemporary. Personalised service matched with attractive pricing policy makes Hotel Justus of great interest for a wide range of guests. The hotel’s site possesses high historical value, since it was part of the plot of land selected by Bishop Albert as the location for his Baltic residence back in 1210. However, the medieval wooden housing was destroyed by the fire in the 17th century, so the architectural ensemble comprising Jauniela Street today dates back to the 18th century. The facade of the hotel itself underwent the last major alteration in 1874. The building hosted a tavern in the early 19th century that was later replaced by typography and lithography services, in the 20th century it was occupied by artisan workshops, pharmaceutical laboratories, and then a cinema gallery and offices. Charms of architecture and historical atmosphere made this place a favourite shooting spot of Soviet movie-makers. Now the hotel belongs to a small group of friends that has spotted an empty run-down building and revived it with artistic energy.Idea of making restaurant Aleks comes from the simple desire to enjoy Riga of the beginning of the previous century. Interior is made from the household items of those times, which gives the restaurant unique look. ... more   less
