Classic hotel next door to Dome CathedralPosted Mar 29, 2017
Pros: Location. Breakfast. Staff very friendly and helpful. Beautifully decorated.
Cons: We asked for a taxi to go to the airport. They instead ordered a fixed fee taxi that charged us more than a regular taxi. But only extra 3 Euros.
Location: Because you are essential in the center of Old Town Riga all the sites are close by. Also lots of inexpensive places to eat such as Kulture Klub ALA.
The Hotel Gutenberg is a great hotel essentially in the heart of old town Riga. It is a close to all of the major sights in Old Town Riga. A very pleasant hotel, nicely decorated. The rooms are very clean with all the amenities. The breakfast is awesome!! Great value for the money.

Excellent location, in historical center but not directly on a main square or other noisy thoroughfare; front desk staff exceptionally helpful, loved the historical theme of the hotel decor.

Peace and quiet in central RigaPosted Sep 10, 2016
Pros: Location, staff, food.
Cons: Access is up a few steps, but I can't see that anything could be done about it given the hotel's location.
Location: Everything in old Riga (Vecriga) is easy to reach. Cafes, restaurants, churches, castle, parks, river trips, all just moments away.
Gutenbergs is in old Riga, where you want to be. Yet it's quiet, just down a side street off Dome Square. Result: everything you want is within easy reach and you can get some sleep. It's also quirky, consisting of several old buildings converted into a superb hotel. The staff are lovely, breakfast is good, the rooftop terrace restaurant gives good views over the old town and the food is great. Just remember that tips are included (look for akpalposana on the bill). We've stayed here before, we booked it this time without looking elsewhere, and will happily do the same again if and when we return to Riga.

Decent hotel for a good pricePosted Aug 8, 2016 on Hotels
The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was okay. However the hotel is pretty run-down and our room needed to be ventilated when we arrived, it was way to stuffy, like it hadn't had fresh air in weeks.

Central and close to Cathedral SquarePosted Apr 15, 2016
Pros: Its convenient location, very helpful staff, good food and a comfortable 4*.
Location: Very central, Cathedral and other buildings and museums easily accessible. The Art Nouveau buildings were an attraction for us.
Very comfortable central hotel. We had a standard room, small with wooden beams that had to be avoided but it was equipped with everything needed, modern en suite, tea/coffee and minibar facilities. Staff ere very helpful. Public computer and printer for checking-in flights on line. Roof top restaurant only open from May (we went in April), but there is a basement restaurant for breakfast and evening meals and many restaurants nearby. We would stay there again but choose a superior room for more space as we are in our '70s.
