I really wanted to love this charming converted convent but... well fortunately I travel with an eye mask as well as industrial-strength earplugs... but even those earplugs couldn't drown out a busker who played amplified music right outside until 2330 or a noisy bunch of athletes parading by outside before 0600. It also seems unfathomable the hotel doesn't have blackout...

The good: Most important the apartment was clean and safe. The shower had lots of water and was hot. The internet is good and there is one English TV channel, BBC. The location is in the middle of the old town, and is close to public transportation. The desk clerks were ok and speak good English but are not overly...

Stayed one night here on the first floor. The only complaint I have about my whole experience is the lack of curtains in my room. I don't like having someone staring back from across the courtyard when I'm trying to relax! Otherwise this hotel is in a great location, everywhere I wanted to visit was easily walkable. The staff were...

Very clean hotel in excellent part of town, very historical, next to St Peter's church. One thing to warn about is the level of noise at night from outside which made it unbearable on the Friday night (nothing on Saturday remarkably). Good breakfast, would return.

This was a wonderful find, especially for the price. The whole places breathes history. It has kept its character. Nooks and crannies everywhere, spaces to sit and read. Loved it. Room was large. Sparsely furnished but more than adequate. View out of window was straight onto st peters church and the square. Did only have net curtain so not totally...

Part of the convent complex in the square behind St Peter’s Church, this wonderful little hotel oozes history. Our room on the top floor had a view of the church and people rubbing the noses of the Bremen ‘town musicians’ statue. There is a modern, flashier hotel in the convent as well, but I am very pleased to have stayed...

The hotel is based very centrally in Riga, so most sights are within walking distance. The room was quite traditional, pretty, and very comfortable. We also chose to have breakfast at the hotel, which was a large buffet that would suit most tastes! Overall, we had a really pleasant stay!

I booked this hotel late on Friday evening for a stay on Saturday. It was very reasonably priced for its location.. It was so easy to find and to use as a base for exploring Riga. We arrived extremely early on Saturday morning and the receptionist was very helpful and took our luggage into storage. Later in the stay we...
