Grand Poet Hotel by Semarah
Raina blvd 5/6, Riga 575 m from center
The hotel is in a brilliant location, we walked everywhere and it's beautiful to walk through the park that's right outside. The staff are lovely and would do anything for you. Breakfast was delicious and the prosecco for breakfast is a nice 5* touch. The decor is beautiful and we would definitely recommend to stay here!
The temperature control for the room didn't work upon checkin and the porter said he would get maintenance to fix it the next day since we arrived late. The next evening when we arrived back to the hotel we found it was still not working. We rang reception and asked for it to be fixed, the same porter came up and flicked a few switches and it started working but as soon as he left the room it stopped again. It was late so we knew maintenance wouldn't be there to fix it at this point so we just left it but it was disappointing because the room was far too hot where we had to open the windows, which is fine but it was blowing the curtains so there was no privacy and the light was coming in.
Spacious room recently renovated and refurbished. Very good breakfast.
The restaurant interior could have been fancier
Breakfast!! Bed, room (216), location👍.
Things that were good: quiet and dark room, good for sleep. Location is excellent. Staff on reception is really trying to help.
The 5 star rating in this case is rather an ambition, not a fact. Things that were not good: the water pressure is very weak, takes forever to run a bath or get a shower; bad drain smell in the bathroom; no access to lactose free milk for lactose intolerant people. When asked the staff during breakfast whether a lactose free milk was available as soy "milk" is a drink, not milk and does not work well with a coffee, was told in a passive-agressive tone that soy milk is the only option and "this is how it is in this hotel".This was not a problem in any other hotel in Riga, who do not claim to be a 5 star hotel; the spa area is very small and thetefore quite crowded, not really a relaxing atmosphere. Bellboy very intrusive. The duvets were synthetic therefore one is very hot when under it and cannot sleep.
Great amenities. Very comfortable bed! Good breakfast.
It's the best hotel in Riga.
Perfect location Beautiful new hotel, big rooms Friendly and professional staff
Furnishings, freshness, good breakfast and nice atmosphere. Cafe and restaurant in the hotel are 5 out of 5.
Staff is not super helpful although they are polite and friendly.
