Four-star boutique Hotel Justus is located in the very of the old town of Riga, literally a few steps away from the famous Dome cathedral, within the architectural area protected by UNESCO as a part of world heritage. The immaculate renovation of the historical building was completed by April 2009, and so today the authentic facade conceals 45 cosy rooms uniquely designed to embrace the charm of genuine brickwork combined with fascinating art objects, antique as well as contemporary. Personalised service matched with attractive pricing policy makes Hotel Justus of great interest for a wide range of guests. The hotel’s site possesses high historical value, since it was part of the plot of land selected by Bishop Albert as the location for his Baltic residence back in 1210. However, the medieval wooden housing was destroyed by the fire in the 17th century, so the architectural ensemble comprising Jauniela Street today dates back to the 18th century. The facade of the hotel itself underwent the last major alteration in 1874. The building hosted a tavern in the early 19th century that was later replaced by typography and lithography services, in the 20th century it was occupied by artisan workshops, pharmaceutical laboratories, and then a cinema gallery and offices. Charms of architecture and historical atmosphere made this place a favourite shooting spot of Soviet movie-makers. Now the hotel belongs to a small group of friends that has spotted an empty run-down building and revived it with artistic energy.Idea of making restaurant Aleks comes from the simple desire to enjoy Riga of the beginning of the previous century. Interior is made from the household items of those times, which gives the restaurant unique look.

Chose this hotel because it’s in the old town so we knew there won’t be problems with noise (especially traffic) during the night. Great location. Clean and spacious room and bathroom. Very warm. Although no kettle in the room but I noticed there are tea and coffee making

Justus, an excellent hotel that gives you a remarkable feeling of getting into a fairy-tale or fantasy dream. The hotel, situated in a historical building, dating back to the 14th century, housed the shootings of the most popular cult Soviet TV episodes of the 1970s "The

Located in an old construction, the decoration is nice and simple. Tv should be better since there are only channels in russian, latvian and german and the tv is old not allowing you to connect a pendrive or something like that. Used the tablet to watch Netflix once the wifi

In the very heart of the old town, next to the Cathedral, this hotel has the atmosphere of old times. The rooms are just the right size - some may find them somewhat small depending on the type of room - they are clean and very well heated. Communication with the hotel is

Can one take a taxi from the airport to the hotel?
Dear Guest, Thank you for your kind inquiry! There are two taxi companies that are located in front of the arrivals of RIX airport - "Red Cab" and "Baltic Taxi". Both provide good service and rates are appropriate. Rate from RIX airprot to Hotel Justus (Jauniela 24) should not be more than 12-15 euros as that depends on a traffic during certains hours. We also provide our special pick up service from the airport to hotel. If you choose such option, please contact hotel directly in order to book the transfer. Kind regards, Hotel Justus administration

"Room 208 was good"
"Ask for a room at the rear if you want a quiet stay. Riga does get stag parties which can be an issue at night with the front facing rooms."
"All rooms are really quiet."
"Ask a room not faced the city-hall with a tower-clock"
