Hi!
The best spot wold be (looking from the river up) - Place between Barona/Matīsa streets to the left side.
A lot of nice cafes, great architecture. Close to most places.

Hi, i would recommend to stay in the centre, but not the old city. There is a lot to see and out beyond the old city.
On Elizabetes street there are several options ranging from fancy (Hotel Bergs) to moderate (Radisson Elizabetes). Clarion on Valdermara is another option.
Riga is compact - you can walk everywhere!

Anywhere downtown is good. Can’t remember the name of the hotel I stayed in but I let the review on Yelp guide me. Everything is walking distance from most places there. Hope that helps

Hi Dominique, we stayed on the old town. It’s a small city and the old town is quite compact. Have a lovely trip
