"Is that the only shirt you brought with you?" Ellen asked as we walked hand-in-hand along the canal in Riga, Latvia. "It says where I'm from and I'm proud of that. I wash and dry it in the night while you sleep, my pretty little bird." Beautiful Old-Town Riga has been found by both the Germans and the British. I sometimes feel fortunate that the …
Well I'm starting this early today - David has gone to the supermarket, while I have returned to our room. I'm not feeling wonderful today. Nothing serious, quite possibly just from different foods and water, and probably coupled with being tired. Earlier today we stopped in at an Apotek (pharmacy) & I bought something like Mylanta. David is back, …
Well we had a later start this morning, because of the late night last night. I finally uploaded the blog entry this morning & added photos & then we went downstairs to breakfast. A little less variety than our breakfasts in Finland & Estonia, but we're getting the hang of how these breakfasts work. When we went outside it was cold, overcast but …
Well it's late & we've only just arrived back in our rooms & I'm tired & it's very tempting to leave this until tomorrow. Especially as I just started and wrote for nearly 30 mins & then my PDA crashed & I hadn't yet done a save ... And lost it all ... I don't feel like trying to repeat all that again. I'll skim the first bit. We were up early & …
I probably should have written this earlier, but things have been completely crazy and updating this has been a last priority ( at least I'm finally getting to it now. After a very short two days in Berlin ( which was not enough time at all to see everything, but at least everything we saw was amazing) we flew to Riga. The same morning that we left …

Historical Traveler Reviews Konventa Seta Hotel Riga
Location, location , location
Great hotel , great location..
In the heart of the Old town...
Very clean....seperate buildings means noise is kept to a minimal...
This is a 3 star hotel, but has definite aspirations!. We loved the location - in a very central setting, and handy for everything. The setting is quaint - it was a former convent and is surrounded by lovely courtyards and buildings, and just over the road from St Peters (best view of the city 2 lats per person - 1 lat = £1 GBP). The staff were tremendously helpful, and went into great detail (all accurate) when asked for directions by bus to the Riga Motor Museum - well worth the trip by the way.
We stayed in a terrific hotel in the centre of Riga, the Konventa Seta. The rooms, location, breakfast, staff and services were all excellent. Our room had a simply wonderful view of the Old Town. I would wholeheartedly recommend this hotel to anyone who is visiting Riga.
I spent 3 nights at the Konventa Seta as part of a group (Elderhostel). It was a very pleasant experience. The hotel is actually several buildings (6?) in a compound that has been beautifully restored. The exteriors remain virtually original but the interiors have been nicely modernized. My room in the "main" building was on the top floor (2 elevators, slowwwww) and had sloping "attic" ceilings on one side but so high that it didn't interfere. Original beams mixed with modernist Scandinavian-style furnishings, wonderfully comfortable bed and modern bathroom (small and functional). Others in our group in a different 2-floor building complained they didn't have an elevator, however.
We stayed in Konventa Seta in mid-June for 3 nights. Our room was quite big double room and it was clean and comfortable if a little too dimly lit. Nothing fancy, but you wouldn't even expect that from a 3-star hotel. Our room was on the kaleju iela side of the hotel, which made it noisy at night as we had to keep the windows open because it was so warm and the hotel doesn't have aircon.
A hotel with history
I had a great suite with my own cooker! Overall the rooms were comfortable if a bit plain. The staff were very good and the breakfast was excellent (go for the smoked fish). The location, right in the middle of the historic part of town was ideal but then Riga is quite small and nowhere is too far away.
We stayed here 15 to 18 February 2005.
I stayed there with my parents 27-29 Nov 04. We chose a superior suite. This hotel is right in the middle of the old city, within walking distance of all the major attractions.
Stayed 5 nights 08-13 November, 2004. Friendly, efficient Front desk staff.
My room, on top (4th) floor, overlooked rooftops and St Peter's Church Spire, and though it was rather bland (White walls, no artwork), it was immaculate and functional. Breakfast buffet each morning was varied and plentiful.
Walked to many museums, The Opera House, Shopping areas, Central Market, etc. which made the city seem more village-like. Had a terrific stay here.
Find yourself in the middle of Riga - close to everything - even a drug store and McDonald's. The centre of Riga leaves you with a sort of comfort like coming home after a number of years abroad. Still Riga's got app. 800,000 inhabitants - but not in the neighbourhood of Konventa Seta. All my recommendations to especially the placing of this hotel - but don't use the hotel restaurant if you are more than hungry - you can get much more for your money in one of the many cozy restaurants in Riga. enjoy your stay!
