Historical Traveller Reviews of Reval Hotel Latvija

Best hotel in Riga

from pineappleeurope
I stayed at this hotel for business. The hotel is the best in Riga and the location is superb - walking distance to Old Town and other attractions. The hotels conference facilities are excellent - just renovated and very modern. The hotel owner also run a catering business so the food is great especially breakfast with its own egg bar.

But please note that the marketing ploy of putting excellent beds in hotel rooms which has reached the rest of the world long ago has not arrived in Latvia yet. The bed in my hotel room was sooooo very bad - like an 70's bed with a thin cloth for a cover. I was told by a friend that some of the rooms have been renovated so make sure you request a renovated room.

Also be aware that Riga is the sex capital of the Baltics and even if you are not looking for action - which I am certainly not - you will be offered it everywhere. I found a funny package in my minibar - I realised it was a condom after further investigation - I have not seen condoms in minibars the past 10 years. Funny really.

Old Town Riga is amazing - really amazing. I didn't want to leave. Restaurans and shops are world class and I am sure you will have a great time in Riga.

Comfortable and cosmopolitan

from pjgy
A typical international hotel with no surprises. You get what you expect. High standards of friendly service. Mix of clientele (althought the bar can sadly be dominated by loud British stag parties who the staff endure with surprising patience). Comfortable rooms (although no iron or coffeee maker) and a ten minute walk to old town. Very good buffet style breakfast - go for the smoked herring or salmon with scrambled egg and black bread.

Very cold but great fun

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed in this hotel 22 Feb for 2 nights on a hen do from Manchester. I was amazed when I entered the lobby of this hotel as it looked very grand and welcoming. Checking in was quick and I was amazed at the range of people staying in the hotel. A mixture of stag parties, business men and couples - good mix.
The rooms were very nice with 3 single beds (although a bit small for 3 girls getting ready for a night out). Equiped with mini bar, hair dryer, plenty of mirrors and all cleaned to a high standard.
Hotel had numerous bars but the best one was the Sky Bar on the 26th floor. Amazing views across the city. Drinks were a bit pricey but you pay for the view.
Planned to use the casino but after having a look round, decided not to bother. Looked like it was fold down tables rather than a fixed casino. People were playing but if you weren't playing you were not allowed to watch.
Shop on the ground floor of hotel great for refreshments, snacks, papers etc and all very reasonable priced.
Didn't eat in the hotel apart from breakfast on our 2nd day. Great choice of food and all very tasty.
The hotel is about 15 minutes from the airport and 10 mins walk to the old town. The old town seemed to have the main bars, restaurants etc. We spent both nights out in the old town and managed to try a good few bars. The nightlife is geared up for men - the sex trade is banging here. Saw many a prostitute but this didn't impact our evenings. We got a laugh out of spectating!
We hired a tour guide for a pub crawl from PartyInRiga - I'd recommend this for your first evening. The guide showed us around and ended with taking us to Club Essential - practically next door to our hotel. Great club and a short stumble home.

I'd recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a clean stay in Riga. This hotel has a touch of class.

Good New Year

from RTB93
This is the second time I have stayed in Riga, the first being in the Albert Hotel back in February 2006.
The hotel was packed over New Year but I found the staff to be more than competant, professional and approachable, and their level of English was excellent.
The rooms were spacious and warm, whilst the shower was superb; just what was needed to wash away the hangover.
Inside the hotel, make your way to the Skyline bar for some fantastic cocktails and some marvelous views. The women there were simply stunning but please read the following carefully.
The women are exceptionally good looking, but it is difficult to know who are the prostitutes and who are not. Alot of the girls will act friendly and will "ponce" free drinks off you allnight if you let them. Likewise the girls in the nightclub beneath the hotel called the Vodoo Lounge.
The club is full of hookers, some of whom will openly approach you, some of which will be a bit more sly and again will try and go down the "buy me a drink" path. It is also full of locals who are not particulary "Brit friendly" at the moment ( thanks to all the idiot scousers who have ruined it for everybody).
Overall there was 3 of us who went for New Year and I would highly recommend it. It was nice to go out on a New Years Eve and not experience any trouble whatsoever, with the average in the bars over 25 and over 21s in the clubs. No drunk teenagers in any of these venues.
A great wekend, a great hotel and a city I thoroughly recommend.

Great place

from pudra
I was stayed there for 3 nights including new year eve. Hotel has a great location just a minute walk away from old town center. There was two sections new section and old section. New section is situated at the back side of the hotel. Relatively more well furnished and equipped than the old section however have no view. Old section has a great view of Riga. Hotel has lots of amenities such as unbeleivable fitness center that i liked most situated at the 27th floor. Incredible view. Also a superb bar at 26th floor which has a perfect Riga view. Hotel staff were friendly, everyone were smiling and try to help you. Hotel was full during our stay but everything goes on schedule. Hotel has a casino if you like, night club and a newly opened wine bar. I didn't go to casino and night club but wine bar was perfect. Breakfast was good but mostly consisting traditional local tastes. Lots of fish and fish products. They were good but not ok for us during morning :).
Hotel has superb location, friendly staff and good rates. I love this hotel.

Sky bar is great

from wid2
I stayed in the Latvija in October 2006 and had a great time. The hotel is nicely fitted out with lots of facilities such as bars, a casino and nightclubs. Being a leisure break with friends, spent a while in the reception bar, the voodoo night club and the wonderful sky bar.

The Sky bar is Fantastic! 26 floors up serving quality cocktails at around £3 a drink, with wonderful decor and views across the city.

Breakfast was also very good as well.

Rooms are reasonable 4 star rooms, but could have done with a kettle in them, minibar was not too expensive.

Most staff were very helpful although the (some) reception staff appeared a little unhelpful at times. The porter was very good as were the barmaids/waitresses.

None of us were too impressed with the Voodoo nightclub, probably because of the music.

A nice visit to the Reval Hotel Latvija

from b82klo
My wife and I just returned last week from our first visit to. We stayed at the Reval Hotel Latvija for four nights and did find it to be a very nice hotel. It was clean, the staff is helpful, it is only a few minutes walk from the old town and it has a large public park just in front of it. For breakfast there was a large buffet. There is also a small kiosk in the hotel.

We found the area behind the hotel to be a lot cheaper than the shops in Old Town Riga so if you go to Riga to do some shopping stay away from Old Town.

Excellant hotel

from Grimoor
A great hotel. Rooms were clean. 10-15min walk to the old town.
Food at the hotel was good and it has a Japanese restaurant as well which was very nice. Breakfast buffet was included in the price and had a good range of hot and cold dishes. And a chef to cook your eggs how you wanted them. If not there was a bowl of soft or hard boiled eggs and a tray of scambled eggs.

Room also has a mini bar and the prices are reasonable. We didn't think twice taking a bottles of drinks from the bar. And there are 3 menus for room service if you don't want to go out to eat and again the prices are reasonable.

Went to the casino in the hotel, which is supposed to be the biggest in the Baltics, it's not huge, but big enough and if a table is is full or a game not open you can just ask and they will open it up for you. Also there is a smoking and non smoking section. Drinks are generally free while you drink, expect cockails and non local beers like Crona.

Also has a nightclub in the hotel that's popular, with 3 rooms playing different music.

And there is the skybar on the 26 floor, which gives a great view of the town.

Security in the hotel is pretty good. on each floor there is a security door that you need to open with your room key before you can access the corridor with all the rooms. This key will only open the door on your floor, so adds a bit more security. There is no safe in the rooms.

I would not hesitate to stay at the hotel again if I came back to Riga.

Tallrest Building in Town

from BornTooLoose
The breakfast is good and filling but the dining room can be a zoo if there's a tour bus in the equation (and there usually is). Casino is a good feature, as is the upper-floor bar-with-a-view (and Riga is wonderfully scenic). Fine location near the Old Town, parks, museums, restaurants, shops. We (2 adults and teenage daughter) would glady go back.

Brilliant Staff

from colin1978
I was a little worried about the adverse comments concerning the staff so I was delighted with the service I received. We went for 3 nights to watch the football and all the staff were helpfull in the extreme. Special mention to Armands on the front desk and the lad in the business centre whose help was above and beyond the call of duty. I will book this hotel again when I return with my wife and yes the breakfast was superb. The evening buffet is also tremendous value. Great location and spotlessly clean rooms.

Top Local Tips for Riga

Limo trip is a must PartyInRiga offer a 1 hour limo tour of the city with champagne. We did this on our first night and it really started the evening in style. We were however a bit worried when the limo driver couldn't speak a word of english and therefore couldn't confirm if we were his pick-up or not!!!! Riga isn't too large therefore not much to see - not that we were looking, sipping champagne and screaming like teenagers in a limo was much more fun. If you plan to do the limo tour, I'd recommend you take your own CDs. We played with the radio for about 30mins before we found decent music. Follow this up with the pub/club tour, you will not be disappointed

History If you want to learn something aboutt the country and its history, visit the occupation museum. Free entry and all the displays have english captions.

A place to stay Try Prague instead.....
