Historical Traveller Reviews of Centra Hotel
Great Hotelfrom Deano1
We booked a Junior Suite which was on the first floor just above reception. The first night we encountered noise both from the street and the room above.
The noise from above was enough to keep us awake for a time. You could clearly hear the occupants walking around the room. However it is unclear wether this was down to lack of sound insulation or inconsiderate occupants.
We asked to move room the following morning and upgraded to a full suite on the topfloor. The remainder of our stay was enjoyable.
Both the Junior Suite and Full Suite were excellent rooms. They are clean, well equipped and furnished to a high standard. The Full Suite in particular offered a separate lounge with huge leather sofas, separate bedroom and bathroom. It also afforded great views of the old town.
Located in the Old Town this is a great base to explore surrounding area, whilst also being just a stone's throw from the City centre too. Bus and Train stations are a 5 minute walk for any onward journey.
Breakfast was what you come to expect travelling around Europe, continental style. Eggs and sausages were also available. Very good.
I would definately recommend a stay in this hotel but request a room on the upper floors to avoid noise pollution from the street. If your thinking of booking a suite pay the extra and go for a full suite. You won't be disappointed!!
A GOOD HOTEL IN A GREAT CITY!!!!!!!!
Great hotel, but......from bfcfan
I emailed the hotel with my concerns, so u never know, things could change!!!!!
Modern Chic, Very spacious, fantastic servicefrom CrazzzzySue
The hotel's rooms are a very generous size. We had a twin with an extra bed and it was like a size of a suite (although was not one). Had 2 sofas, TV, large window, a hallway even! Had beautiful simplistic 'white' decor - a little on the cold side I suppose but looked fresh and modern. The bathroom in the twin room had heated floor and was quite large. My parents double room was still large, but their bathroom was a bit pokey. Shower pressure great.
The staff were very helpful in all respects.
The rooms look out over the old town which was gorgeous at that time of year - lots of snow around.
The hotel has many great restaurants around and is on the same street as the Christmas markets which were suberb. We spent 3 nights and was not disspointed. I would definitely go back. The breakfasts are lovely and fresh.
If Centra is busy, staying elsewhere in the old town is the way to go. You can still venture across the river to the other parts of town, but the cobbled pedestrian only streets are far more pituresque.
Ideal place to stay in Rigafrom A TripAdvisor Member
Central, stylish but a little too cool!from DMK100
Other issues include the fact that breakfast was a bit bland and the male receptionists could be a bit friendlier - they really were very cold. The one female receptionist I dealt with (the one who changed our room) was very nice.
Overall a very positive experience with the Centra and I would recommend.
Perfect in every way!!from SeenItAll
Centra Hotel - Fantasticfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Just a couple of tips. The bus to the centre from the airport runs regular and is only 20p. It drops you very close to the old town. If you need to take a taxi to or from the old town, get it just outside the barriers - if not they charge you an additional £5 on top of the fare.

The hotel is in excellent location and the transfers from the airport were efficently dealt with ;the stretch limo was a bargain @ 10 lats!!
Staff were also v helpful to assist with all aspects of our stay.
Minor negative points -small bathroom -but not a problem really as lounge and bedroom were a good size.
Breakfast could have been a bit of a bit more innovative and changed over the 3 days.
Otherwise I recommend the centra and riga for a relaxing weekend
Excellent value for money at the Centrafrom quietman
Good breakfast. Hotel conveniently placed and well priced .
Would certainly return.
Top Local Tips for Riga
Galleries shopping centre Turn right outside the hotel and about 30 metres down the road you will see a new shopping complex on left hand side. The supermarket (Rimi) has the same type of produce as in UK. We had a picnic (sandwiches, crisps and beer) for lunch one day .. very nice.
Vegetarian Restaurants If you're vegetarian, you may not expect to find too many options in traditional Latvian restaurants. However, we were pleasently surprised by the amount of choice available in Riga. Two of our favourites were Planet Sushi where we sampled some gorgeous veggie options which were really good value. There was also Kamala, an amazing veggie restaurant which was a bit more pricey but definitely worth it. I would recommend booking in advance though, as it was absolutely tiny.
When If you go even at Easter, wrap up warm. And I am from Scotland! Food is excellent value and quality.
