          Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Garden Palace Riga

          Ein wirkliches Juwel in dieser wunderschönen Stadt


          Das Garden Palace in der Altstadt von Riga ist ein neues Hotel und alles war sehr sauber. Wir hatten ein 2-Zimmer Appartement für 100 Euro über gebucht. Es gab 5 Einzelbetten, zwei Flachbildschirmfernseher und ein Badezimmer mit einer sehr guten Dusche. Das Hotel spiegelt den Charme vergangener Zeiten wider, das Frühstück wurde im Büffetstil serviert und war von sehr guter Qualität. Riga war wunderbar, die Busse haben 50 Cent gekostet, die Taxen haben des Öfteren versucht, einen übers Ohr zu hauen, aber wer will schon bei - 21 Grad Celsius auf einen Bus warten. Wir sind ins Lido gegangen und es war einfach toll, die Auswahl an Essen war unglaublich und im Bierkeller gab es Live-Musik. Es gibt viele Einkaufszentren, viele Kaffeehäuser und gute Restaurants. Ich habe im Reval Hotel Latvia ein Filetsteak für nur 10 Euro gegessen, eine tolle Mahlzeit. Kann es gar nicht erwarten zurückzukehren.

          Hotel impresionante


          Nos quedamos aquí tres noches en febrero. ¡Qué hotel tan fantástico! La última noche, reservamos una suite a través de No tengo nada negativo que decir sobre este lugar. El personal era amable y servicial, el hotel estaba limpio y ordenado y estaba maravillosamente ubicado. Lo recomendaría a todo el mundo.

          Geniales Hotel


          Waren im Februar für drei Nächte hier. Was für ein fantastisches Hotel. Für die letzte Nacht unseres Aufenthaltes hatten wir eine Suite über gebucht. Kann wirklich kein schlechtes Wort darüber verlieren. Die Angestellten waren freundlich und hilfsbereit und das Hotel war immer sauber und ordentlich und die Lage ist fantastisch. Kann es jedem empfehlen.

          Amazing Hotel


          We stayed here for 3 nights in February. What a fantastic hotel. The last night we stayed we booked a Suite through I really can't think of anything bad to say about it. The staff were friendly and helpful, the hotel was clean and tidy and has a fantastic location. I would recommend it to anyone.

          Hotel maravilloso en cada aspecto


          No puedo decir lo suficiente sobre este hotel. Justo en el centro del casco antiguo. La Iglesia de San Pedro está enfrente así que, dondequiera que estés en el casco antoguo, puedes ver la aguja de la iglesia y es fácil volver al hotel. Nuestra habitación era larga y angosta, pero bastante espaciosa, con una cómoda cama doble, un armario grande, un tocador y un escritorio con teléfono, espejo, etcétera. Había un televisor de pantalla plana grande con veinte canales por satélite y un mini-bar extremadamente barato. £1.50 por una botella de 0.5 litros de Bud o £1 por la cerveza local que es mejor. También tuvimos un cuarto de baño con bañera, ducha, secador de pelo y el lavabo más grande que haya visto. El personal de recepción siempre sonreía, era amigable y servicial. La decoración del hotel era increíble. Los pasillos estaban llenos de muebles y de cuadros maravillosos mientras que la recepción y el área de los ascensores eran de baldosa o de mármol. Esos aspectos contribuyeron al ambiente elegante del lugar. La habitación doble nos costó £47 a través de mientras que había una oferta similar en su página web. El taxi desde el aeropuerto nos trajo al hotel por 8 LVL (£8). Sin duda, me quedaré aquí de nuevo y tengo ganas de volver. Para los que quieran ver los sitios de interés, o ir a los bares, no creo que haya un lugar mejor donde pueden alojarse.

          Wonderful hotel in every way


          I cannot speak highly enough about this hotel. Right in the middle of the old town, St Peters church is right facing, so no matter where

          you are in the old town, you can see the spire and easily find your way back. Our room was long and narrow, but spacious enough, with a comfortable double bed, huge wardrobe, a chest of drawers and a desk area with phone, mirror etc. There was a large flat screen TV with about 20 sattelite channels and an extremely cheap mini bar. £1.50 for a 0.5 litre Bud or £1 for the local beer which is better. We also

          had a large bathroom with a bath, shower hairdryer, and the largest sink I have ever seen. Reception staff were always smiling, friendly and very helpful. The decor was unbelievable around the hotel. Corridors were filled with wonderful furniture and pictures, while the reception and lift area was all tiled or marble giving the place a very regal feel to it. Double room cost us £47 through while there are also half price offers on the hotels own website. Taxi from the airport dropped us outside for 8LVL(£8). I will be staying here again without any doubt and look faorward to it. For people who want to visit the sites, or go around the bars, I don't think you will find anywhere better to stay.

          One Of The Best Hotels Ive Stayed In


          Originally I had been intending to stay in Prague , but as the price rose we opted for Riga.

          Picked this hotet ahead of the Domina and the Albert Hotel on the basis of cost and locality to the Old Town....Felt it was a bit of a risk as it had only just opened and there were very little reviews

          However we weren't disappointed, in any way with any aspect of this hotel. We Paid 140 Lats/pounds or 200Euro for 4 nights here and it was an absolute bargain.

          The hotel is situated right beside the House of Blackheads and the massive spire of St.Peters Cathedral towers over it majestically.

          We arrived at 11.00pm and the staff couldnt have been more helpful, checking us in promptly and showing us to our room - which had a balcony as well. The hotel corridors were truly majestic with golden Chandeliers and Clocks set out beside tables as you walked to your room.

          The breakfast was more than fine with mini sausages, omletes, scrambled egg, pancakes, and cereals.. As well as coffee, tea and fruit juices.

          Walking around Riga was very plesant particularly as it was very sunny when we were there, altho the Cobbled streets did ultimately get the better of my feet!. The sights are fantastic to see, The Dome Cathedral, Black Cat Building, Freedom Monument and St Peters all very close to each other. In fact there is a booklet in most hotels which gives you a "walking tour" and you can certainly see everything and more in around 3 hours without ever being that far from the hotel.

          The tall steeples are a fantastic way of making sure you dont get lost as sometimes the narrow streets are a bit of a labyrinth at times.

          The freedom monument is truly inspiring and watching the guards go through their paces is interesting,, after which you can either take a walk through the parks or head to the Skyline Bar in the Hotel Reval for a beer/cocktail with a view of Riga from the 26th floor.

          The museum of the occupation truly is a "must see" as you can learn the history of the oppression that Latvia and her people have endured up till 1990s.

          I also reccomend taking the life to the top of St Peters Church Spire for yet more fantastic views of Riga.

          Bars I would reccomend are

          De Laceys, Paddy Whelans for the food , The Stella Pub, Cafe Cuba as well. The 1st 3 are English/Irish bars but werent too bad.

          We found a few Latvian bars as well, 1 of which's name escapes me, However I reccomend

          Taverna Dziniara Cela on the large yellow long building , beside the City defence wall. £2.40 for a 3/4 Litre Latvian strong beer! And the girls are dressed in traditional Latvian Outfits.

          Alus Arsenals where the barman was very obliging once you started to talk to him.

          For an absolute Bargain beer head for Lasite (Zelta) which is at the end of a side street close to the Church just in front of the Castle a 3 minute walk from Dome Square. A Large Local beer was an incredible ONE pound/Lat exactly here.

          We found most if not all of the Latvia pubs very quiet however we prefered that as whilst it can be nice to chat to English speakers there are certain elements that are travelling abroad which do not appeal to me.

          We found most of the Latvians very reserved even if you visited their bars every night , gradually though they started to talk a bit.

          For Taxis definately use the RED ones and no others. Our taxi to the hotel was 6.50 lats and the driver was very friendly whereas the one taking us back was 13.00 lasts and couldnt dump us out quick enough!

          I would reccomend Riga to anyone who has never been, as everything you need is close at hand, However if you are looking for 50pence a beer then I would advise looking elsewhere.

          One final thing I will say Riga is a very very clean city with no litter whatsoever..., I only hope that stays that way as with the amount of Stag Parties arriving on the day we were leaving I could tell the atmosphere was about to change...

          I would reccomend if you are a couple looking for a perfect romantic break that you travel midweek, maybe Mon-Thurs or Tues - Fri etc.


          Una verdadera joya en esta ciudad maravillosa


          El Garden Palace en el centro histórico de Riga, es un hotel nuevo así que todo estaba muy limpio. Tuvimos un apartamento de dos cuartos por 80 libras. Reservamos a través de Tenía una habitación y dos televisores de pantalla plana, un cuarto de baño con una buena ducha. El hotel era muy pintoresco, el desayuno era un bufé y de buena calidad. Riga era maravillosa. El autobús nos costó .30 centavos. Los taxistas tratan de estafarte pero cuando hace tanto frío, ¿quién quiere esperar el autobús? Fuimos al Lido y fue fantástico, la variedad de comida fue impresionante y había música en vivo en la bodega de cerveza. Numerosos centros comerciales, también. Visite el Mols y Spice. Muchas tiendas de té y comida de buena calidad. Probé el filete en el Reval Hotel Latvija por solo 8 libras. Cena fabulosa. Tengo ganas de volver.

          Une vraie perle dans une ville merveilleuse


          C'est un nouvel hôtel dans la vieille ville de Riga, et tout est parfaitement propre . Nous avons eu un appartement de 2 chambres pour 112 Euros la nuit, réservé sur le site "Laterooms". Il y avait 5 lits d'une personne, 2 TV à écran plat, une salle de bains avec une bonne douche. L'hôtel a le charme de l'ancien, le petit déjeuner est de type buffet et d'excellente qualité. Riga est une ville merveilleuse, le bus coûte 0,42 Euros, les taxis essayent de vous arnaquer un peu, mais quand il fait -21°, on n'a pas envie d'attendre le bus. Nous sommes allés au Lido, c'était fantastique, avec un choix incroyable de nourriture ; il y avait de la musique "live" dans la cave à bière. Il y a de nombreux centres commerciaux, essayez le "Mols". Beaucoup de cafés et la nourriture est de bonne qualité. J'ai payé un peu plus de 11 euros pour un repas fabuleux à l'hôtel Reval Latvia, avec un steak dans le filet. Je suis impatient d'y retourner.

          Truly a gem in this wonderful city


          the garden palace old town riga, this is a new hotel so everything was really clean.we had a 2 room apartment for £80 booked through had 5 single beds and two flatscreen tvs, one bathroom with good shower. the hotel is full of old world charm, breakfast was buffet style and good quality. riga was wonderful, buses 30 pence, taxis try to rip you off a bit, but when its -21c who wants to wait on a bus. went to the lido and this was wow, the variety of food was amazing and the beer cellar had live music.lots of shopping malls too, try the mols, and spice.lots of coffee shops and good quality food.had fillet steak in the reval hotel latvia,for only £8.fab meal.cant wait to go back.

          ... just a bland warehouse district used to be the busiest street in town and this is where you could come to purchase a witness. If you committed a crime and needed an alibi for a few lats you could come down here and buy a friend to confirm you were no where near the scene of the crime at the time.

          I woke up far too early. I was the first one up, so I got ready, and then yelled at everyone else to get up when it was getting close to breakfast time. Breakfast wasn't so great. It was in weird building. All it was was some veggies, eggs, and bread. Not the best way to start the day, but you can't complain too much. Then, once back at the dorms, we had to grab all of our stuff for the day. Of course there's just one elevator and it's slow, so ...
