        Nice clean hotel. Book it with special offers. Otherwise too expencive.

        Wi-fi only at a hall on the ground floor. There is cable internet in rooms, but who cares when you travel with iPad.

        Breakfast was excellent, especially Russian-style "Solyanka" soup on the 1st of January. The room and bathroom were quite spacious. And they arranged for us an excellent restaurant ("Garage" - don't miss it visiting Riga) for the New Year dinner.

        We were unlucky to get to the hotel during the change of managing company. The restaurant was opened for breakfast only and no food or beverage could be obtained in the hotel during day or night time (strange for a 4-star facility Ramada Riga claims to be). Minibar in the room was empty and remote control for tv set didn't work. The entrance to the hotel wasn't cleaned of snow and ice despite security guy hanging around and doing nothing. And finally when we asked reception for a taxi, they've arranged a car where driver charged us 6 times the price (more than 35 Euro for 7 km drive).

        Very good breakfast - deliсious, various.

        From Center - 20 min on foot. Abandoned houses around.

      • Couple
        7.8

        Real comfortable place with distinguished design and affable stuff.

        Firstly, the breakfast was poor and didn't fulfill the whole level of the hotel. To get some coffee or tea at the buffet breakfast you should ask a waiter - never seen that before anywhere. Secondly, if your aim is walking across the Old city, Ramada is not the best choise. In reality, you need 20-30 minutes to get the city's cnter by foot.

        First time i was pleasant surprised about hotel staff work. They even in advance created all my company details for invoice. Also free of charge upgrade was nice bonus for my stay. Next visit definitely will stay here.

        breakfast with salmon, cleanless, value fro money.

      • Group of friends
        7.4

        Although the room was located near the lifts there was very little noise. Our room was also located near the restaurant and, once again, very little noise. Breakfast was excellent as was the staff.

        The mini bar was not stocked and not switched on either.

      • Group of friends

        Good location, 3 lati taxi ride to old town, (too cold to walk). Big double bedroom on 6th floor, newly refurbed hotel. good staff. free internet..

        Its really a very good Hotel in value for money. All stories about far from city centres are not understandable. Its les then 15 minutes walking.

      • Family with children
        9.2

        Very nice place in the city centre, the staff were very frendly, our room was very clean, quiet and comfortable. The price was perfect for hotel like this.
