With the Latvian National Opera House by its side and the alluring Old Town at its feet, Grand Hotel Kempinski Riga enjoys the perfect location in the Latvian capital. The building stands tall among other historic sites in the heart of the city, and for more than a century it has welcomed a glittering array of guests, including notable artists, musicians, writers and even royal families.

The hotel first opened its doors to visitors in 1878 when it was known as Hotel Rome, offering the most modern accommodation in Riga. After being almost entirely destroyed during the Second World War, Hotel Rome was quickly rebuilt in the following years, and gained a new name — Hotel Riga. Over the last decade, the hotel has undergone a number of changes to turn it into a world-class site that satisfies the most discerning of guests.

The legendary address now belongs to the Grand Hotel Kempinski Riga, a fascinating property where history meets modernity. Due to its reconstructed classic facade and the contemporary yet splendid interior, the hotel serves as a bridge between old and new Riga.

The hotel has 100 luxurious rooms, 40 suites and one especially magnificent Presidential Suite. Amber, the all-day dining restaurant, offers international dishes with a modern twist, while the rooftop restaurant and bar, Stage 22, serves up unique cocktails as well as a breathtaking panoramic view of the capital below. There’s also a separate Grand Bar, six meeting rooms, the Grand Ballroom, and a comprehensive spa, which was crowned Latvia’s Best Spa Hotel in the World Spa Awards 2018.

As part of the oldest hotel company in Europe, Grand Hotel Kempinski Riga’s longstanding high quality and diversity of its services are two of its greatest assets, but the hotel is also within striking distance of a number of the city’s main attractions. Nearby are the city’s major shopping and restaurant areas, as well as a number of historical landmarks and attractions — including the Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Grand Hotel Kempinski Riga is the first choice for an exquisite stay in the Latvian capital, be it for business, pleasure or a special celebration.
