We didn't expect much due to the low price and the 2* rating but we liked it so much we stayed another night. The room was situated towards the inner courtyard and thus very quiet but of course also without view. There were three bathrooms for the floor which were cleaned frequently. The staff was friendly and helped us store... More

I really liked the location of the guesthouse - close to the centre yet very quiet. The price for August was quite reasonable, the staff were friendly and helpful. Good breakfasts, too. Wi-Fi connection was always working well. So, I may say that it's a perfect place for this hotel category and for this price.

This guesthouse is situated in really (strangely) quiet area. It is an old building. We chose it just because of a price and we just needed some place to sleep during our weekend stay in Riga. It is a 2* hotel so our expectations werent too high. Rooms are clean but needs serious refurbishing. Squeeky wooden floor and noisy mattress.... More

I was expecting nothing for the price, but it was more, far more...Really enjoyed my brief stay there. The staff was very helpful and the best was breakfast :) The guesthouse is situated in a peacful part of town, but still close to the old town.

Very silent based hotel in Riga. Nice rooms, very basic but clean. Prices were good for what you get. Too bad there's no elevator (6th floor was quite a long trip without elevator!) Friendly staff and a-maaa-zing coffee! Definitely worth it if you're looking for a basic hotel for a nice price!

We had one night stay at this nice place, which maybe have seen better days. Best thing is very fine, friendly and kindness service. Room were clean, and we did sleep well. Breakfast was aldo fine. One night costs 45,50 €! Neighborhood is what it is, ugly, but oldtown is near.

You get what you pay for, and even a bit more. There's share bathroom and kitchen, but the rooms are big. The breakfast was surprisingly good. It's about 15 minuts walk to the Old City, and there's a lot to see on the road. Recommended!

On this trip I was looking to spend as little money as possible, so I was willing to put up with inconveniences. I was pleasantly surprised. The place was clean, the breakfast was decent, and the internet was amazing.

I stayed at the Guesthouse Jakob Lenz for one night in room 210. Location is spot on, based on a quiet side street, not far from the city enter and Riga old town. Breakfast was included and the guy on reception was friendly. Suited for budget travellers.
