... and headed through the hip area where the cool kids live out to a craft beer brewery and enjoyed unfiltered local beer. We had a few other places on our list but being Monday they were closed so we went home for a few drinks. We had also popped into several local shops and hotspots throughout the day so we had done very well exploring Riga that day. With time ticking on and it all being rather similar to Estonia we woke up on Tuesday and decided to press on to Lithuiania! :) ...
... man stunk. The stink was palpable and comparable to the body odor of the stinky man in Berlin. To make matters worse there is a watermelon scented air freshener placed on the heater so now it smells like fruity BO.
We stayed long enough to make our bed and then ran out of there. Unfortunately we think the man spends too much time in the room as he has set up a desktop computer from 1989 on the bedside table.

Later, we went to a huge market in Riga that had everything from vegetables, huge catfish, eclairs and more. I was able to order everything in Russian and we had super amazing Russian food again. Once again, the food was literally the same stuff my parents and my grandmas would cook for me on ...
... I was heading in, the walk was taking longer than I had imagined it and nothing was looking familiar. Consulting my map wasn’t really practical in the rain, so I just trusted my judgement and kept walking.
Eventually I found my way to the Old Town and found the Museum. Sav was there and he told that there was still about 15-20 minutes before opening time. I killed the time by taking another wander around the town, as it was wet there were ...
... a good price..so stacked our plates, and went off in search of some nightlife. Went to a french undeground bar called 'Belle Epoque', which was small and cosy, and had an 'apple pie' shot..no idea what was in it but tasted like eating apple pie, bar staff were cool, so go here if you are in Riga. Next stop was 'No problems', which is a huge outdoor bar, tables and chairs etc (see photos), which had a great band playing what sounded a little like celtic rock/blues/folk, no idea ...

Historical Traveler Reviews PK Riga Hotel
Just returned from a two night stay at the Domina Inn. Lovely hotel, we were lucky to get upgraded for free to a suite which was fantastic.
Hotel staff were friendly and keen to assist you. Breakfast at the hotel was of a good standard with plenty of choice.
Only a short walk from the Old Town. Disappointed in the quality of food in places we went but maybe we were unlucky.
I was expecting Riga to be very busy at nightime, however the streets were deserted most of the time but this was midweek so maybe weekends are busier.
All in all a pleasant stay and I would recommend this hotel to anybody going to Riga.
I booked Domina Inn after reading the reviews on this site and I'm glad I did. What do we look for in a hotel? I would argue comfort, cleanliness and location would be high on most peoples lists. Domina Inn excels at all of these. The hotel is spotlessly clean, the beds incredibly comfortable and the location ideal for sight seeing in Riga. The reception staff speak English very well and go out of their way to help. The breakfast caters for many different tastes: traditional English, continental, Latvian and other combinations that you might fancy such as scrambled eggs with smoked salmon. There was one criticism on this site about the size of the rooms. We stayed in a standard room and found that the size was acceptable to us - in fact no real difference to an average sized 4 star hotel room in the UK. However we did find a big difference in the cost - 69€ per night for the two of us including breakfast! We considered this to be great value.
An enjoyable break
We have recently returned from a weekend break in the Domina Inn, Riga (Sat - Tues). The hotel was both clean and tastefully decorated. The staff spoke good English and were willing to offer assistance and honest advice at all times. On the down side we felt the room was very small and cramped and the bar prices very expensive. These increased when the 'live !?!' musician played.
Riga's Old Town is close by (10/15 min walk). It is a beautiful and interesting place with lots to see and do. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would highly recommend it.
Got back yesterday from 3 nights in Riga staying at the Domina Inn, stayed Mon-Thurs. The hotel itself is very nice and is very clean, nicely decorated and the staff are all very helpful and speak good english.
High standard modern hotel with friendly staff, comfortable rooms & good bathroom with nice shower and underfloor heating.
The Domina Inn is situated in a quiet area slightly outside the centre of the Old Town, but a short stroll through a couple of beautiful parks gets you there in no time, or a taxi ride will only cost a few Lats.
Great value for money - overall very impressed with hotel and would recommend.
sorry, but I expected more. The room was mini mini mini. Never seen such a small hotel room before. Telephones does not work. TV not really. OK it is clean and new, but there are a lot new hotels in riga. City is nice, hotel in walking distance to old town.
I for myself and my husband, too were disappointed. Breakfast ok.
We used trip advisor to source a hotel. We were in Riga for 3 days. This hotel was excellent in terms of value for money and comfort. The staff were friendly and helpful. They could speak English. We booked a superior double room.
Location - it's about a 10 minute walk from the Old Town, situated in a nice safe area with an incredibly cheap, well stocked supermarket about 4 doors along the road. Some good places to eat nearby, and the hotel restaurant is highly recommended for dinner! If you don't fancy the walk into the Old Town, buses run every few minutes from right outside the door - dirt cheap too! Buy the ticket on board - 20 centimes per journey (approx 20p) Hotel is in a beautiful old building, completely renovated, everything looks brand new, very modern design.
Domina Inn Riga is a new Hotel that has opened in April 2005. It's located just north of the Old Town (easy and safe walk, or No 19 trolleybus for 0.20 Lats) in an upmarket area (many foreign embassies are nearby). Grocery shops, restaurants etc. are nearby, including a 24/7 grocery just across the street.
