Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Latvia - Kelley's Old Town Apartment

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-8)

Riga is the capital of Latvia, a small Baltic Sea nation that has been free from Soviet rule for 22 years. The Old Town is almost completely restored to its ravishing beauty of the 30's when its standard of living equaled Stockholm, Copenhagen and Amsterdam. This apartment is the personal residence of the president of an international Christian charity. He lives in it about 6 months per year. It's available to rent when he is not in Latvia.

It is about 100 years old, but fully renovated. It's in a large apartment building with an old, but functional elevator. The location is amazing, right in the middle of the Old Town. Look out the window and see the National Archives, Philharmonic Hall, Small Guild. Step out of the front door and you are in Dome Cathedral Square. There are countless restaurants, cafés, beer gardens, malls, antique stores, galleries, health spas, museums and places of historical interest. Street parking is not possible; public parking garage near by.

EVERY YEAR THOUSANDS OF EUROPEAN TOURISTS DECLARE THAT RIGA IS EUROPE'S BEST KEPT SECRET. Come and see why.

Our stay in Riga for the first time was only enhanced by the apartment in Old Riga. The sounds from the music guild wafted in the open windows in the evening, some evenings street musicians could be heard just below. It was blissful. The location was fantastic with neighbor bakery just around the corner and lattes just out the front door. Of course the french press in the kitchen was handy for homebrew coffee. The apartment was comfortable and felt like home not a hotel which is what we really wanted. Vineta the apartment manager was an angel and off course our kids were enthralled with the old fashioned lift. The bathtub was great! I could soak up to my neck in Latvian bath salts after long days of walking the beautiful city of Riga. Thanks Chuck for sharing your home!

Bringing our son home

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in a few different places on this first trip of three to finalize our adoption. Old town Riga is be far our favorite international city to visit! SO BEAUTIFUL! There are so many wonderful restaurants and bakeries in walking distance. Truly a great place to stay in Old Town. Both the owner and his property manager were wonderful people, very kind and generous spirits. Would love to stay again, maybe our last trip.

Really enjoyed Old Riga apartment

  • 4 out of 5
I really enjoyed staying in this apartment right in the heart of Old Town Riga. So nice to be able to walk everywhere and see museums, Cathedrals, shops, the park, the Operahouse, etc. The grocery store was a close walk also. The apartment was super comfortable and it was great to have a washing machine there. The video's were wonderful to have available for myself and my 14 yr. old also. We even had fun watching the ballet class in the building next store from my daughters bedroom window. I would highly recommend this place. The only problem we had was the elevator which was working fine until the second week we were there. It broke down and did not get fixed until about 5 days later so we had to walk the four flights up and down but this added to our daily workout combined with all the walking we did. We survived. I heard that alot of people tried to ride in it at the same time which was not wise. As long as you balanced your weight inside and didn't move about, it worked fine although it made my daughter very nervous. Otherwise our stay was great!

Within a day or so, it felt like home. Anything necessary was within walking distance and most other destinations could be reached by tram. There was plenty of space for a family of 4 to draw, play cards, watch movies, and whatever else. It was nice that we could walk to the little Lido Alus Seta restaurant in about 2 minutes, and since we were there in June, there were plenty of live musical offerings all around. The owner's paintings hung on the walls, which made the place feel extra special.
