Small, green and beautiful, Riga is big on architectural styles, from art deco to rococo, and edgy art spaces that are currently hosting the city’s first biennale
The family-owned Neiburgs design hotel is in a beautiful art deco building on acobbled street in Riga’s pretty old town. There’s a mix of rooms and apartments, all with original features – parquet floors, original ceiling lamps, stucco coving. They are light and spacious (and most have a kitchenette). There’s an outstanding Latvian restaurant on site, with vegan, vegetarian and fusion dishes. Colourful, modern paintings by local artists such as Kristiana Dimitere and Katrina Neiburga decorate the walls.
