Riga Hotels

There is a wide choice of accommodation in Riga, which ranges from international-standard hotel chains to more atmospheric guest houses in the heart of Old Town. Although prices have been steadily rising in the city, there are still some great accommodation bargains to be found throughout Riga.

The Riga hotels below have been hand-picked by our guide author and are grouped into three pricing categories:


Grand Palace

Regarded by many as the finest hotel in Riga, the Grand Palace is a supremely enjoyable place to stay. It manages to conjure up an old world feeling of luxury and decadence while also staying ahead of the game with Wi-Fi now available in all guest rooms. Slick service, a sauna and gym help complete the impressive picture of perhaps the best hotel in the country. First class.

Address: , Pils 12 , Riga, 1050
Telephone: +371 6704 4000

Hotel Bergs

When it first opened it was ranked by Condé Nast as one of the world's best boutique hotels. This slick operation in the new town is indeed impressive, both in terms of the designer décor and the seamlessly smooth service. It’s easy to see why this Riga hotel has won so many awards. Still one of the most fashionable places to stay in the Latvian capital, Hotel Bergs also has an excellent restaurant on site.

Address: , Elizabetes 83/85, Riga, 1050
Telephone: +371 6777 0900

Radisson SAS Daugava

The free airport transfer helps make up for the location on the opposite bank of the River Daugava from almost everything you will want to see and do. The views of the Old Town are superb across the water. Complimentary Wi-Fi is available for all guests.

Address: , Kugu 24 , Riga, 1048
Telephone: +371 6706 1111


Hestia Hotel Jugend

The latest offering from this rapidly growing hotel chain offers state-of-the-art rooms with high-speed internet access, albeit a lack of soul. The location is handy, just on the edge of Old Town and within walking distance of most of the main points of interest.

Address: , Pulkveza Brieza 11/13, Riga, 1010
Telephone: +371 6763 1800

Kolonna Hotel Brigita

This attractive boutique hotel in Riga is located in an old merchant's house that has its origins back in the 14th-century. Its location is excellent – right in the city centre. Rooms are modern and light; some also have impressive oak beams that add a touch of character. The Penthouse Rooms have views over Riga’s Old Town.

Address: , Saulkalnes 11, Riga, 1058
Telephone: +371 6762 3000.

Rixwell Centra

This boutique hotel in Riga is a stylish option handily located between Old Town and the bus and railway stations. The 26 minimalist rooms are elegantly decorated and all have satellite TV and internet connections. Some of the rooms on the upper levels boast great views of Old Town.

Address: Centra rajons, Audēju 1, Riga, 1050
Telephone: +371 6722 6441


Dodo Hotel

Latvia’s answer to the Premier Inn, Dodo is the flagship property for a new chain of budget hotels. What the 100+ spacious rooms lack in individuality they more than make up for in comfort and value for money, making this a good choice for budget travellers. The breakfast buffet costs extra, and the hotel is about a 15-minute walk into town. Even so, this is one of the better value hotels in Riga.

Address: , Jersikas 1 , Riga, 1003
Telephone: +371 6724 0220

KB Hotel

Located in a beautiful art nouveau building, the KB is a no-frills hotel ideal for budget travellers. The décor is a bit tired, but the room rates are cheap. Regular trams to the city centre stop right outside the hotel, although the walk is no more than 15 minutes. Situated in the UNESCO-listed art nouveau district, there’s just one catch – the hotel is on the top floor and the lift doesn’t work.

Address: Centra rajons, Krišjāna Barona 37, Riga, 1011
