My son and I stayed at the Grand Palace for three nights while visiting Riga. The hotel is located on a quiet street on the edge of Riga's Old Town. It is a short stroll to the restaurants and sights of the Old Town or to the river. The splendid Art Nouveau District is further but still is an easy...

I had a room on the 5th floor. It was quite big and really clean. What bothered me was that I could not sleep with the a/c on because from time to time it made a very disturbing sound and I could not sleep with the windows open because of the noise in the street :(. So check your room...

This hotel was perfect in every way. It is located right in the Old Town which is very compact, so it is just a short walk to nearly everything you want to see. Parking was available on the street right outside the building with a parking permit provided by the hotel for €15 per day. The staff was gracious, friendly...

This is a beautiful hotel, excellently situated, near the Old Town and not far from the magnificent Art Nouveau buildings and the boat trip on the canal. There are comfortable bedrooms, an attractive dining room, a big welcoming bar with snacks, and a most helpful and charming staff. Highly recommended.

Its a short walk to the...

Great stay, i was there for the second time, and again not disappointed once. Staff was super helpful and extremely nice. Breakfast as always was very good, and parking (paying) was just in front of the hotel, very convenient as well. Would recommend this classic luxury hotel to anyone who likes good value for good quality.
