Riga might not be on everyone’s radar, but it’s a place that I still really recommend you check out. Beautiful architecture, tons of history and a vibrant nightlife scene make Riga an increasingly popular city break destination.
There’s something else that I love about Riga too. When it comes to accommodation you really do get incredible value for money. Spend a little bit of time browsing around on any hotel booking website and you’re bound to come across some amazing bargains. But personally I just love staying in apartments. Comfy, cosy and stylish, apartments give you plenty of privacy and allow you to live like a local!
So – looking to try out a completely new city? Or have you been eyeing up Riga as a potential addition to your must-see list? If the answer to any of those questions is yes, then be sure to take a look at these gorgeous apartments I’ve found. They really do offer fantastic value for money and – above all – are super trendy! I’d be happy to live there if you ask me… ;)
If you fancy a city break but worried your budget won’t stretch far, this apartment will be the perfect choice for you. With space for up to 3 people, rates start from just €22 per night, even if you’re a solo traveller. The open-plan kitchen, dining and living areas offer the apartment a lot of space and openness, yet neat little touches such as the bare wooden walls and window frames lend a sense of warmth.
The trendy kitchen has all the mod-cons you could possibly need, as does the spacious bathroom. The bedroom is bright and airy with wide open spaces, so you’ll never feel cramped while staying here. I personally love all the plants that are dotted around the property – they add that special touch that makes a house feel like a home!
The apartment is situated just a stone’s throw away from the very centre of the city, making it super convenient for short breaks. Plus you can book it instantly, which is pretty lucky in my opinion – I’d be rushing to book it right away! If you’re interested then simply click the link below to be taken to the listing.
Travelling with a slightly larger group? Or are you looking for a bit more luxury? Then this is the place you’ve been looking for! Rates start from €75 per night, but you’ve also got space for up to four people, making it a perfect choice for a family getaway or even just a short break with your best mates. The entire apartment is furnished to a very high standard and incredibly bright, combining more traditional design elements with that modern Scandinavian touch.
Again you’ve got a fantastic open-kitchen, and the building itself gives the place a lot of character. We’re talking super-high ceilings and amazing parquet floors! I particularly like the little dining table that wraps around the corner wall – a clever space-saving touch!
The location couldn’t be any more central. You’re actually staying within the city’s historic centre, so you’ve got top sights and wicked restaurants right at your doorstep! Again you have the possibility to book instantly for extra convenience.
Still not luxurious enough for you? I’m sure this wonderful property will definitely do the trick. While the design leans slightly more towards the classical side of things, it still oozes with contemporary glamour. The plush furniture, ornate decorations and charming building come together amazingly. Just look at how that kitchen blends in so seamlessly! Ticks all of my interior design boxes…
You can tell a lot of though has gone into decorating this place. Take a look at the parquet floor where the dining table – they’ve stencilled in a rug! Like they say, it’s always the little details that add up over time.
Whether you’re snuggling up in the bedroom, chilling out in the living room or enjoying a cheeky bit of wine in the colossal kitchen/dining area, you’ll realise just how much space there really is here. And again you’ll be benefiting from a super central location. The little extra cherry on top. ;)
