    Very good

    Hotel was central and very clean. Staff was very polite

    (1) Asked for 30 mins late check-out and it was refused (12.30 rather than 12.00). (2) The second day I was there, I returned the the hotel and I found the door of the room wide open and no cleaning personnel around. I waited few minutes to see if someone was going to come back, but nothing. I went to the receiption and asked for explaination...they simply forgot to close the room! Fortunately nothing was missing in the room.

    The staff at reception were extremely welcoming and professional, the position of the hotel just off the Cathedral Square was perfect for visiting the historic center of Riga. The bedding was very comfortable, the room spacious and immaculately clean, furnishings were luxurious. All the comfort you would expect of a 5 star boutique hotel, good value for the money by Western European standards, but probably very expensive for Latvia.

    The atmosphere in the hotel is very cozy yet luxurious. Hotel staff is great. We have booked the rooms at the very nice price, thus for us it was definitely great value for money.

    The beds could be a bit bigger both ways - but at least longer... 180 cm tall person is not feeling very comfy in it. The breakfast menu is not as wide as even in some usual level hotels, but pretty OK anyway.

    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....

    The hotel gave me a free upgrade to a deluxe room which was a very pleasant surprise. It made my stay in Riga that much better. The hotel staff were very friendly and eager to please. I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone planning a visit to Riga.

    It was quite close to the shopping area, and nice situated in the old town.

    First og all we have struggeled a little to regain the loss of sleep, because there was a show for many hours late in the evening and out into the night, and it was real loud. We have now been travelling first three weeks to Iceland, New York, Las Vegas, the three Hawaiian islands of Big Island, Oahu (Honolulu) and Maui, and San Francisco via Seattle on the return back to Europe. We then have continued from Norway to Seweden, Finland, Estonia, the stay in Riga, next to Lithuania, in Poland. We have only been staying in top rated hotels, from de Luxe suites and up on our entire stay. We will be travelling a lot to Latvia due to our cooperation with Baltic producers of timber frame houses and steel buildings too, not always with our baby, but in most cases we will, like we have done on this trip. It was just a pity we weren't informed up front byt he planned show in the hotel, as the hotel must have known about this event at least when we were on our way to Riga from Estoina, and we even called you during our trip, to make sure everything was in order. The problem with the big steps in front of the hotel is another challenge for us since we have the stroller and a lot of baggage with us. We got help with the baggage at our arrival, but mostly had to carry our stroller up end down the stairs by ourselves, since there not always were someone there to help us. My wife had planned a day by herself with the baby while I was having businessmeetings for some hours during the day, but desided to go with me because of the hassle to carry the stroller up and down the stairs.

    wonderful location with attentive and friendly staff.

    One recommendation I can make for many hotels the Grand Palace included is that although the breakfast menu is extensive and delicious there is an observed avoidance of local produce. "Fresh fruit" in Latvia should mean berries, strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, red and black currants were all in season and sold by the ton at the local produce markets and by women, children on every highway. Kiwi, bananas, oranges are not "fresh" in the Baltic states. The same could be said about the use of local mushrooms--chantarelles for in enormous quantities were not seen on the otherwise lavish hotel menu.
