Grand Palace Hotel, Riga, Latvia

Was ever a place more aptly named? It is definitely grand. It is obviously palatial. And now it is a five star, luxury, boutique hotel!

Walk through the impressively large doors of the 19th century Central Bank of Latvia, in Riga’s Old Town, and you won’t be confronted by a rank of tellers and be-suited financial advisors. Instead you’ll be welcomed, formally but warmly, by the Grand’s charming reception staff.

The old Bank is now a reserve of luxury, service and style. Transformed in the year 2000 into a five star, boutique hotel, the Grand Palace Hotel is perfectly described by its name. The rooms are of regal proportions with ceiling-high windows giving great city views. You’ll enjoy traditional yet classically stylish décor – complemented by the latest in entertainment technology. Yet one of the Grand’s best features lies beyond its stately edifice; it is situated in the heart of Riga’s delightful Old Town.
