Park Inn by Radisson Residence Riga Barona Hotel Review

14 Nov 2019

My last stay in Riga, Latvia was at the Park Inn by Radisson Residence Riga Barona. This is a brand-new hotel located just over a kilometer north of the central train station. The area surrounding the hotel is bustling with tons of people and businesses including lots of restaurants which I was excited about exploring. The Park Inn by Radisson Residence Riga Barona has several different room types including longer stay options that are more like serviced departments than simple hotel rooms.

After spending some time in the relaxed atmosphere of the lobby, I headed up to the seventh floor to see my massive 60m² One Bedroom Superior Apartment with Terrace. The access of two terraces made this extra special! Inside the apartment was a kitchen and lots of seating which provided an atmosphere that felt like home.

A feature of the apartment that I really enjoyed were the giant windows. The weather wasn’t the best during my stay, but I did have a chance to snap some photos of the city.

The breakfast at Park Inn by Radisson Residence Riga Barona is served from 7am-10am, which is a little bit earlier than I would have preferred and served in the Tokyo City Restaurant. The buffet is made up of a modest selection both hot and cold items. Overall, I found enough for myself to eat but a bit more selection would have been ideal. I did especially like the interior of the restaurant which is very relaxed and comfortable.

The Park Inn by Radisson Residence Riga Barona is a great place to spend an extended stay in the heart of Latvia. The location in the modern center of the Riga offers easy access to public transportation and the thriving community that surrounds the property. I must point out that the hotel does not have facilities such as a gym, pool, or spa. When it’s all said and done, I enjoyed my stay at Park Inn by Radisson Residence Riga Barona and would happily return, especially for a long stay!

Radisson Hotel Old Town Riga Review

14 Nov 2019

My second hotel stay on my first visit to Latvia was at the Radisson Hotel Old Town Riga. As you can infer from the name, the property is located on the edge of Riga’s beautiful Old Town. From the moment I stepped in the lobby I realized that the hotel’s interior was quite modern. In contrast, the building itself was built in the 19th century. From the Radisson Hotel Old Town Riga, it’s easy to walk almost anywhere in the city. Just across the street is the beautiful Bastejkalna Park. Also, be sure to visit the Occupation Museum which is located just across the park from the hotel. I didn’t realize how interesting Latvia’s history was until I visited the museum!

After checking in, I had to wait a little while for my room to become ready as I arrived a bit early. Once the room was ready, I went up to the fifth floor to have a look. Just like the rest of the hotel, the room was contemporary in its style. There was a monochrome color palette with one colorful piece of artwork to accent the space. I tend to prefer minimal interior design so it was easy to enjoy this room’s style.

I was truly impressed by the superb bedding as it was very comfortable and allowed me to sleep effortlessly. In the room there was a capsule coffee machine, teakettle, and very small bottles of welcome water that were not replenished throughout the stay.

I’d like to thank the staff for the small bottle of wine and cookies as a welcome gift.

Radisson Hotel Old Town Riga’s breakfast was located on the ground floor, just on the side of the lobby. I appreciated the fact that there were several local items to choose from including smoked fish and lots of pickled vegetables. Along with the decent buffet selection, there was an à la carte menu which included things like omelettes, pancakes, and waffles. Everything tasted quite good and the selection was decent. The two staff members at breakfast did a fantastic job at offering warm and attentive service for my entire stay!

Not far from the lobby was the fitness room. I must say that this is the smallest hotel fitness room I have ever seen. Inside there was a single exercise bike, selection of free weights, single weight bench, and some CrossFit style bars going up the wall and across the ceiling. Even though it was very small, I did manage to get a great workout in. There are no changing rooms, saunas, steam rooms, or pools.

The Radisson Hotel Old Town Riga has a fairly basic offering. The property’s high point is its location which is hard to beat. Although the rooms are comfortable, it’s not a hotel designed to spend leisure time in as the facilities are limited. Overall, it was a smooth and comfortable no-frills stay. That being said, I was happy with my stay and would be also happy to return to the Radisson Hotel Old Town Riga!

Luxury Boutique Hotel in Riga’s Old Town: Dome Hotel Review

11 Nov 2019

Another day, another country! Next stop on my most recent world tour was in Riga, Latvia at the luxurious Dome Boutique Hotel. I came directly from the Riga Airport and I took bus 22 which dropped me off just a few hundred meters away. I made my way through part of Riga’s Old Town, down some beautiful winding cobblestone streets before I found myself at the front door of the Dome Hotel. The hotel is in a building that was originally built in the 17th century, but has been renovated to have all of the luxurious modern amenities needed. It’s important to note that all attractions in the city are easily walk-able from the Dome Hotel.

Upon entering the front door, I checked in with a very friendly front desk attendant and made my way up to the third floor to see my spacious suite. It was actually a bit cold when I arrived and was offered a cup of tea. The suite opens up into a small seating area that includes a sofa, desk, and closet.

The breakfast takes place in their Fish Restaurant on the ground floor. The breakfast is in both an a la carte and buffet format offering only the finest quality food and drink. I’m so glad I got to stay here for so long and enjoy this beautiful breakfast every day!  They offer several quality items that go above and beyond standard buffets, including breakfast canapés and sparkling wine. The dining room atmosphere, food quality, and service were fantastic everyday. Well done.

During my stay at Dome Hotel Riga I also had a chance to enjoy the five course tasting menu at Fish Restaurant. As you can imagine, there was a lot of fish! Once again, the service, like at breakfast was fantastic. When it came to the food, although I did appreciate some of the items more than others. Although overall the meal was above average, with a bit more focus on cooking techniques I believe that Fish Restaurant has the potential to be absolutely mind-blowing!

Other features of the Dome Hotel are the Turkish Hammam and Dry Sauna. These are great because it’s possible to use them in complete privacy. Simply alert the staff, and 30 to 40 minutes later it’s time for tranquility. The property did not have a fitness center or pool during my visit.
