interior design, good choice for breakfast, professional staff, location sigar smoke from the Pils Bar fills out the entire lobby, including reception, very unpleasant fact for non-smoking or allerrgic or pregnant guests, strong conditioning of the bar area needed!
Felt comfotable after 5 minutes of arriving at teh hotel both of us were knocked out by the relaxed atmoshere and design of the hotel.Enjoyed every minute. Only one problem the noise of shouting early morning in the street. But the windows had proper noise reducing insulation, I can't see what more could be have been done....
Hotel staff was the best.
Beautiful hotel, charming staff, great food, superb location. I can't fault this hotel in anyway. Riga very nice also!
Genuine and friendly attention and service starting at recepion,extending to the restaurant and the smokers accomodatig bar and ending with the helpful porter .
Location, building, facilities (except minibar), and first of all the fantastic breakfast. Minibar out of order - reported at reception - no repair in next 48 hours
The beds. I slept like a lamb. It was being renovated, so the view was obscured, but that was the only thing.
the staff were excellent breakfast disappointing for this class of hotel
Staff were courteous and attentive, the hotel was attractively but comfortably decorated and furnished, and the rooms were comfortable and well equipped. The location is superb. Unfortunately, I chose to stay on the weekend when the bar and main restaurant were closed for refurbishment. It would have been polite to let me know about this before I made the booking.
The breakfast buffet was wonderful. We thought the location was one of the best in Old Riga. The room could not have been better. It is not something we did not like, but we wish we had realized how formal their dinner restaurant was. Men in the restaurant were wearing tuxedos and we did not pack anything dressy enough to eat there.
Quiet street. Great, central location. Comfortable bed. Nice en-suite. Friendly staff. Got exactly what I was expecting from the website. Confusion at the end as to what had and had not been paid for, but they accepted that I had already paid and took me at my word. Breakfast basic but adequate.
Staff was nice, breakfest the same I have booked dbl but I have received twin :((
Good size, clean, modern room. Very nice staff, good service. Nice location in the old city and in working distance to the Central station
Close proximity to historical areas. The fact that the old walls from original building were not hidden away. Food was excellent. Courteousness of staff. Absence of tea making facilities.
Flott beliggenhet i gamlebyen, kort avstand til ¨'alt'.
Good service, beautiful setting handy for old town
The location and service and food hard matress in the bed
A very friendly and helpful staff - both before and during our stay. A nice breakfast buffet, where you can have freshly made pancakes, omelets etc., if you wish so. The hotel itself felt very cozy and the rooms as well were nice. A very good location in the midst of the Old Town of Riga. It is very nice that there is an elevator, when you use crutches. When we unfortunately locked the key for one of the suitcases into the bag there was no help to find regarding a tool that could help break ud the lock. This was a very small thing, but at the time a bit frustrating that there was no tool box available at the hotel.
old part of hotel is best as reconstruction noise from other rooms
central location rooms on front have bright lights outside,24hours of daylight,to hard to sleep
Cosy atmosphere, friendly staff, good breakfast, very good location of the hotel (In the Old Riga) The mattress on the bed could be more comfortable.
Good location. Nice hotel
The hotel was very near to the center (old riga) and the rooms was non-smoking rooms. The room had a huge balcony and a lot of space. Breakfast was also good
Size of rooms, centrality, value for money, sauna in bedroom!
design, breakfast absence of pillows in our room, absence of slippers and dressing gown
Placement in the old Riga. Design. Staff benevolence. Breakfast. Laud music from the yard.
location Single rooms are too tiny, take double if available.
Nice hotel, good staff, great location
Its location near the railwaystation and center old city was convenient. The general atmosphere at the reception was one of no real interest in the guest. Perhaps not the direct fault of the reception personel but the change of time was not mentioned; thus missing my transport and did I have to wait another 7 hours. The toilet was not clean on ariving. The room (5212) was large but the furnature was basic only, the fixing of one of the curtains hing loose in the wall; the general atmosphere of the room was not impressive at all. The price of the room, 90 euro, per night was out of proportion. Dinner at the restaurant and beakfast were oke.
Good location, good service and nice staff. Maybe the hotel has seen it's best days. I stayed there once 8 years ago and then is was very nice, but nothing has been done to the rooms since then.
The breakfasts were great. The rooms were not as well equipped as I had expected, given the pricing of the rooms.
You have to learn the staff to say good morning at least!
Staff very helpful ,breakfast, good ,lots to pick from.Good coffee. A place I have stayed at before,and have enjoyed. My stay was very good, 2 wonderful weeks.
Probably the best location in Riga, friendly stuff, warm rooms and spacious, nice breakfast. Close to railway station and bus terminal, walking distance to the main square matresses could be better
Location definetely. Just in the heart of the old city. The comfort is ok for a travelling, but not for thoise who look for stars.And the personnel on the reception is really nice. all of them.
Excellent location, good breakfast which included hot dishes, large room, good value for money.
Excellent location, nice size room, friendly staff, good breakfast spread Nothing particularly negative about this place but keep in mind that this is an old facility so everything will look, feel, and smell like an old facility.
First of all, the hotel is situated in the Old Town of Riga. Also it's only 10 min walk from the railway station. The outsides of the hotel look romantic with the cobbled pavements. Breakfast is very good (especially the salad with marinated cucumbers :) ). The staff is very polite and pleasant. I'd defnitely recommend this hotel to anyone. No complaints.
Location of hotel in the old town. lack of a lift as we were on the 4th floor.
We like the hotel very much it was very cosy and very central in the city and the price was OK The beds was too small and in a bad condition
Quiet atmosphere, good service. a little too warm rooms?
Our stay at Hotel Monte Kristo, was fabulous!! We couldn't have asked for better service!! The staff were really helpful, organised our trips, and made breakfast for us at a time that we requested! The food was superb!! Will definately be staying here again!! Everything was excellent, from the location of hotel, to the bedrooms and facilities, to the staff and food!! I stayed here with my sister, mum and 2 aunties, age range 23 to 58, and the hotel catered for all our needs!! From cocktails to cups of tea!! Thank You!!
The suite was good. Comfortable bed, jacuzzi and sauna. Service of depositing luggage is very convenient. Web was not functioning during the first day of stay. Sattelite TV also didn't work.
First of all, friendliness of the staff The breakfast room was small and I would prefer more to choose from at the breakfast table...
It's a nice hotel! Due to its location, ideal for people planning both city tours and shopping. Moreover it is located closed to the railway station. Hotel staff is pleasent and responsive. And the breakfast was perfect!!!
The staff is really helpful (we've checked-in in 11am, much earlier than supposed to,after check-out left your lugggage in special room), the location is wonderful (Old City and railway and coach stations). Nice interior.
location bathroom leaked badly that hotel room carpet was wet. Asked for twin room and was given double. Room very tiny could not even walk around bed
breakfast no maney exchange....very important if you arrived in the night and whant to eat, specially if you take wife or kids, very bad coffee
clenliness of the room and hotel staff were just perfect!!! I liked it very much.
localition and room with the perfect air condicioner the sound from the next door club
The staff was very friendly and the service was great. Perfect location right in the center of the old city. Strange that it is a gap under roomdoors to the hallway.
Nice room, staff were really helpful and friendly and the location was very central. Nothing. The hotel scored 10/10
New, clean, small hotel at the center of old city with good design of space and good staff. The breakfast was excellent.
Excellent hotel, room was very nice and a good size, hotel was right in the middle of the old town so perfect location. Also, the restaurant was fantastic. Would definitely stay there again no complaints.
Good locations. Booking price and hotel price is defferent,small problem and was problem
Staff were very attentive, location of hotel central, room was large weather was poor
I enjoyed its friendly staff, excellent location and the general good design and comfort. An excellent location for a city break in Riga.
Nice, new, clean, quite high class hotel. Sounds from the pedestrian street (+ night club) during the night.
Great location, style, brand new, terrific price. Yes, they have a major a/c issue... The outter rooms (~90%) seem to be having major problems with eat building up and no a/c functioning effectively, causing rooms to be more like saunas. There are 2 rooms per floor that are not outside facing rooms (face attrium/lobby) and the are great, very cool as is lobby area of hotel. They seem to be in dire need to some major physical structural overview as these are only 2 month old a/c units...
Great location, easy access, convinient parking, great design, very clean and comfortable. Very friendly staff, it was possible to do late checj out, without any single problem and extra charge. Fabulous!
very near the centre. clean
Staff friendly, smiley and very helpful. The food was very good. Close to your beautiful odl town and the ministries. Also, not far from the airport.Thank you.
very good hotel, good location on edge of old town. bus stop for airport outside hotel
Very good welcome from staff when we checked in early,despite the fact we were 4 hours early the room was available within 30 minutes.After that good start the standards were kept to a high level Not really a complaint: we avail of your free dinner offer over two nights,but the short menu was the same both nights,the food was very good and served promptly but a change of menu would have been a nice touch
Excellent room with oldtown view! Very spacious! 5 windows! Breathtaking view! Like it very much. Good staff. Good dishes from the restaurant menu. Parking. No.
Quite Internet speed
room cleanliness was perfect, breakfast buffet oustanding, price more than OK for the accomodation. located right in front of the station and central market, but no big deal about security
Staff was very kind and patient, food was very delicious. I didn't like so much the fact that we ordered triple room but we've got a double room with one extra bed.
We stayed for 4 nights and had a room with a beautiful view over marketplace. Closeness to railway station was not disturbing at all, because with double windows room was extra quite. But the best part was restaurant on the ground floor - good prices and marvelous taste.
The room was clean. The hotel look better in real as at the pictures
Clean. Good location. Friendly, English speaking staff. New hotel. No shower in bathroom only 'pull out' shower head over large corner bath.
The location is the best thing I liked about the hotel. In the old town and very close to the coach station. The Hustler Channel (adult TV) came free (a mistake?), but it'd bad if I traveled with kids.
Good breakfast and very close to the center. The room was very small. The furniture need ergently renovation. Near the hotel there is building construction so it's usually noisy in the rooms which turns to the front of the street.
Single rooms are very small. And walls are mot sound proof and extremly noisy!
Clean, comfortable room. Helpful staff at reception. No WiFi in the rooms. Breakfast often ran out of quite a few items.
Nice clean rooms, really good price. Very nice inner design of the hotel. The room was too small. The breakfast was ok, though it could include more choice.
A perfect location, excellent food, friendly staff, nice rooms!
near the town. nice people/staff small room, the breakfast wasnt the best
Perfect location, incredibly helpful stuff, was pleasant stay at hotel, will come back for sure
pancakes no wifi connection inside of rooms
The staff were very helpful and friendly answering any questions that we had. The location was excellent for exploring the old town. I stayed in this hotel on two occaisions, on the second occaision the carpet in the room had not been cleaned properly, however, this was put right 5 minutes after I mentioned it to reception.
The most - design and location. An d staff - very welcome !Thanks a lot! Breakfast choice was pure, in my opinion.
Excellent location in Riga Old Town. Room was very comfortable.
Hotel design vey nice and original. Very convenient to historic center by walk though still calm location. Staff very friendly and helpful.
The Staff of the hotel is beyond friendly - they made us feel right at home from the first minute! =) Location couldn't be better - right at the heart of old town. The restaurant can also be warmly recommended.
The staff were very helpful, the fod was excellent, and the whole experience was very relaxing and enjoyable.
Walking around, sightseeing, perfect location, many delicious restaurants nearby the hotel, possibilities to visit other place of attraction (like Yurmala) No
Cold in number.
Old town is really close enough, all remarkable places to see are also close - the hotel itself is nice and quiet which is good atleast if you wand to relax after your walkabouts around the city.
We liked very much your well-qualified staff, nice location and wonderful view out of the window
location would be nice to have more internatioanl tv channel, whi-fi in all building and if not bath robe, than at least slippers))
Small hotel with cosey atmosphere. Good meals and breakfast. Suitable as hotel for going sightseeing in Riga. Pricewise a bit expensive for it's purpose.
beautiful place in old city polite staff; good atmosphere; good rooms; no coffee and tea facililities in room
Very close to old city, just a step away. Spacious and nice hall with fireplace. Room was nice too, with big bed and warm blanket. Everything would be good if upon arrival we were said that they going to make upgrade for us, but we need to wait one and a half our till the room will be cleaned. But when we came back front desk manager told us that the room is not free yet and we should check-in in that we booked. It's ok that they didn't do it, but why they told us that. We had romantic holidays with my partner and just wanted to have good holidays and not to wait something we didn't get finally. It was the only thing I really didn't like... but I'm not sure that hotel is "boutique" in right way and how I expected. Just nice place to spend few days.
Clean and quiet hotel, perfect location. Very comfortable and cozy! Nice interiors, large bath, warm floor. Absolutely no problem with hot water during all day. Tasty breakfasts. Good price! I recomend it!
Adorable hotel. located in the Old City. just on the way from the bus station to the center. 10 min from the train station.
Pleasant and friendly staff - close to city centre - comfortable and clean rooms Room on the front of the hotel is subject to all night noise from disco across the road. Breakfast selection was small compared to other hotels I have experienced in Riga
The staff on Reception were great, even the one known affectionately as Miss Bossy! The Location is excellent and the Ainavas is the right balance between Hotel and Home. I would recommend it.
The staff were excellant the room good No credit card facility,no tea/coffee facility in the room badly needed
Perfect atmosphere, ideal to relax and unwind
In a good location enabling go around the Old City. Cosy place. Relaxing atmosphere. During the night it was a bit noisy because of a bar nearby. The breakfast could be richer
Price to quality ratio, location, breakfast. Breakfast was very good and unlike in Estonia, cooked food was properly re-heated before being placed in the warmers. I did not understand previous reports of "thin walls" and noise from neighboring rooms. Yes, if you are in the bathroom, you can hear the flush from above. But you don't hear it if you're not in the bathroom. At least I didn't. I was in room 32. The windows sealed well and kept out any street noise. Well, I hate duvets but that is a European thing. I would say they need heavier curtains, or a shade, to keep the light from entering first thing in the morning. It's not quite as bad as having a rooster next door, though.
My preferrences: location,reasonable price,politeness of staff, comfort for travellers-all you need at any time is not far to reach.for tranzit travellers like me it's a good decision to stay in budget room! I guess,my stay was good. Sometimes guests are too loud at night-but it doesn"t depend on hotel.
Staff was very friendly and ready to help, for tourism orientation, bus reservations, etc... Very well located between city center and shopping places. Rooms not grand but clean and great for the price. A few steps from Galleria Centrs where you can find Rimi supermarket and Double Coffee quick food. Wifi worked only 5 mn per day. Breakfast could have been better, I had to ask for the butter not to be frozen, and after that if I didn't ask it still came frozen.
The location in old Riga is amazing!
location it had a slight smell of smoke
The room was ok The breakfast was not ok
Absolutely superb. Price service location space. Impeccable
excellent hotel, in the center of the old city - it's very convenient to go sightseeing from here, a lot of shops and restaurant around the hotel
location Basic breakfast options, bed comfort, noisy stag do people roaming around corridors all night
It was a pleasant hotel very clean and comfortable, I would recommend it to a friend it was very economical. The breakfast could be better organised, i.e.there is a lot of waste as they bring everything regardless of whether you want it or not, some thing could be help yourself to prevent this
close to old city ,polite stuff,simple but decent room , parking comes as separate charge and is couple of blocks away(5min walk)
Good central location. Friendly staff. Excellent self service break fast. Website overplays uyje quality of the rooms. We were initially given a room which smelled strongly of cigarette smoke. We were moved to a smaller room which was adequate but not up to our expectations.
Location in the very center of the down town Much noise at night from the bar opposite the hotel room 302
Perfect location for a city weekend, friendly staff, comfotable room, oldfashioned, clean. Breakfast good. I liked everything, the hotel was as I expected.
very good location, beautiful room We had a room on the fourth flour, close to conference room. Each evening this room was used for big parties that lasted from late afternoon to midnight. . This was really annoying as we expected to have quite and relaxing weekend but we were forced to stay away from the hotel. And we had small problems all the time, starting from selling us card for wireless connection when we staying in the room were no wireless connection was available, we had to ask for second set of towels (for us, it was rather strange to receive on set, for double room), and the hot breakfast was actually cold, and so on.
Silence Changed the first room, due to someone had recently smoked there...
The remarkable interiors, preserved medieval, polite and attentive staff. In my next visit to Riga i will stop only at this hotel.
Hotel situated in the centre of the old town was ideal Friday nights can be noisy
very nice environment - close to the old town
Nice rooms, wonderful view no
Central location, spaciousness and cleanliness of accommodation, nice breakfast. Limited services: no room service, no fitness center.
Hotel stuff is very frendly
The hotel was in the old town and central to cafes, bars and restaurants. It was close to public transport and a lot of the local sites.
Great hotel, big rooms, great location.
Very clean and comfortable room. Perfect location for a city trip (from my room I could see St Peter's cathedral very close). Excellent breakfast.
Location and room. Breakfast also good.
Good beds, clean rooms, best location in Old Riga The breakfast is minimal, but why eat breakfast in your hotel if you are in the centre of town...
Excellent location right in the middle of the old town. Rooms were massive (twins) with a sofa,tv and fridge. Excellent continental breakfast No kettle in the room but i think i could of requested one not sure
Exelent location for sigt seeing No room tea making facities No bath floor mat
Lovely, beautiful hotel, very friendly and helpful staff. In an excellent location right in the old town. Pretty rooms. Great breakfast too.
central, calm room available,
Location, location, location...overlooking cathedral in old town Decor of the hotel was fantastic Breakfast was superb..just had to walk around the corner Staff were very helpful Overall excellent hotel Room was small and no wardrobes, but hotel in very old building so no big deal really
clean, quiet, central, good breakfast
Style of room; central location. Very small room - barely enough space to open my case. No TV. It was fine for one night, but I would have struggled for longer.
We had a nice room at the back of the hotel. It was very quiet, location is brilliant and the hotelpersonal was very helpfull. The location is excellent as its in the middle of the centre and its in a very old building! When you have breakfast in the restaurant next to Ekes Konvents know that you can order more then one thing on the list and that cost 1,5 Lets krone extra. Not a big problem but you should take notice off. We found one choice was not enough for breakfast. Waitress was not so friendly compared with the extremly friendly staff from Ekes Konvents.
I like the fact that it is one of the oldest inns in Riga, and by that a historical building. It is located next to Peters Church, and the church tower is visible from all corners of The Old town Riga and by that easy to find for a forreigner who is not speaking latvian fluently. The teahouse in basement is cosy. I did not like the solution of how they serve breakfast. It is ok enough to go in nextdoor bar, but I would self like to choose what I want for breakfast and not all people like continetal breakfst with egg and bacon.. and in august Riga allready is quite cold, so it would be an idea to keep on heat in bathroomfloor and rooms in general so next time I come I do not have to freeze an catch a cold as how I did the last two times.
Nice bathroom's That the breakfast is in a another hotel.
Excellent location, friendly staff, nice quiet room as requested
Very central location, walking distance from all interesting sites in Riga. Very friendly & competent staff. Hotel with historical character, yet fully modernized with nice Spa facilities.
we had an excellent experience...this hotel is highly commendable...special mention for the restaurant and the friendliness of the personnel...very good bed...quiet...in the heart of the "old city"...do you need anything more?
Perfect place for a romantic weekend and for sofisticated city travellers. Superb concierge service. Gourmet breakfast a la carte ( the only option) was great but might be a disadvantage for business travellers as it takes a while.
Very confortable room,friendly sevice
Amazing hotel with superb atmosphere. Very intimate and personal touch. First class service and staff. Everything exceeded our expectations. Highly recommended for a memorable visit.
I was very impressed by the staff. All of them (though small in number) are absolute profs. Politeness and kindness to the guests. Eager to help. They helped me to get away from the city by train when almost there were no tickets (Iceland vulcan eruption). Free and fast Wi Fi. Very extravagant design and comfort rooms. The location is close to the Dome Square, in the heart of the old city and very accesible by the car from the river side. They call themself a SPA hotel, though you cannot really say it at all. They have only 2 small massage rooms, hammam and sauna (though sauna on the rooof level vith the city view). Like that almost all hotels can call themself a SPA hotel. The breakfast included is only the continental small version.
The staff was extremely helpful and accomodating. Very Family Friendly. The food was excellent as well. Overall amazing stay!
Attractive decor, friendly staff and great breakfast in a good location Lack of advertised roof top spa. Taxi driver had trouble finding it so better directions required. Lack of bath in "bathroom" as on booking form
The Hotel stuff is the best I've met. The location is excellent. I will stay only in this Hotel next my trip to Riga.
The Best hotel in our life! The best personal! They help us with everything! They did our little weekend unforgettable! Good Breakfast! Personal in Spa very nice and professional! Room (deluxe suite) was amazing!!! And again... the best staff! If you need great hotel in the centre of the Old Riga - don't think - just go to this hotel!
