We spent 1 night in Riga and needed a central place to stay in to optimize our time and Kolonna hotel satisfied our requirements. The hotel is right in the old town in a nice small pedestrian street that is close to everything. The reception is a bit dated, but I guess this is part of the charm of the old town. Check-in was easy and our room was ready. The room was very spacious for a budget hotel which is a nice surprise! It was also clean with a heater and bedding. The room comes with a private bathroom, but it is an external one so you get the key for the bathroom at check-in. Again the bathroom was very clean. There is also a free WiFi in all areas and it worked well. Maybe, working a bit on the reception area because it looks dated.
