Stay in Riga
In the spirit of the city’s position as a Baltic crossroads, accommodation options range from a cheap and cheerful hostel bed to a suite at the Grand Palace Hotel. Be sure to book ahead in high season. Unless noted, hotel prices include breakfast and 9% VAT.
The number and quality of hotels in Riga today is testimony to the city’s modern approach to maintaining old world standards.
Behind carefully restored facades can be found traditional comforts combined with the most modern conveniences. A variety of restaurants, bars, and clubs throughout the Old Town and New Town remind visitors that Riga was once “Paris of the North”.
The city’s nightlife stretches into the early hours of morning, offering entertainment to satisfy even the most adventurous visitor.
Riga’s myriad of parks, squares and expansive countryside just minutes outside town, become idyllic places to slow the pace of city life, appreciate nature and enjoy outdoor activities.
A look through a local newspaper or website such as the Baltic Times or Riga this Week shows off the city’s active business and leisure calendar.
Whether visiting on business, backpacking across the Baltics, exploring Latvia with family or just getting away for a romantic weekend, Riga has plenty to distract and entertain. Getting around is also easy and comfortable.
The city is well connected with an efficient transport system; a taxi, bus or tram are never more than a few minutes away, so no excuses for missing important dates!
Tired after a long day, maybe hung over after a long night? Walk into one of the many saunas and spas to calm nerves, refresh and leave reinvigorated.
Relax. Riga offers the kind of hospitality that will ensure an enjoyable stay.
