About Rixwell Old Riga Palace Hotel, Riga

Art Deco hotel with spa, short walk from Old Town and market

Quiet haven near river

On a quiet street near the Daugava river and an 8-minute stroll from Old Town, elegant Rixwell Old Riga Palace Hotel provides a tranquil refuge from the city center. You’re also a 10-minute walk from the huge Central Market and an 8-minute walk from Latvian National Opera.

Church and castle

En route to Old Town’s narrow streets and medieval buildings, St. Peter’s Church, with its city-view tower, is well-worth a stop. The grand Riga Castle is a 5-minute walk, and you can experience ancient Latvian farm life at Latvian Ethnographic Open-Air Museum, a 23-minute drive.

Free breakfast buffet

Each morning, you’re treated to a free breakfast buffet, and the restaurant and bar offers European and traditional Latvian dishes for lunch and dinner. You can work out in the exercise room or indulge in a soothing spa treatment.

Pleasant views, free WiFi

The 116 smoke-free guestrooms are decorated with wood furnishings and offer city or courtyard views - some rooms even have private balconies. You can enjoy treats from the minibar while surfing the Web with free WiFi, or relax watching shows on the flat-screen TV.

Functional hotel in a good location to explore the city. Rooms are small but at least they are clean and well maintained.

Good for one night.
Good location. In old town inside the walls. Easy walk from the ferry terminal. Old building with good updating. Good breakfast. Nice patio to lounge on in the evening. Staff were nice but not concerned. Stayed in the tiny rooms in the basement. Small but cute. Low ceiling so duck when walking. Maybe the upper rooms are bigger. Don't book the basement if you are afraid of tight spaces.

Spacious room, nice balcony but could be bigger. Toiletries only given on the first day along with 2 bottles of complimentary water. Great location, quiet, right in the middle of Old Town close to food, bars, nightlife, and sightseeing. Sauna should be free for guests, not have to pay for use. :(. Excellent and reliable WiFi, Good breakfast with assortment of various foods, yummy!
