The pet friendly accommodation is easily accessible by both car and foot from all major attractions, and is a short walk from major exhibition centers, museums, embassies, state ministries, and sport halls.

A charming guest house with friendly service!

During your stay at this value for money Riga accommodation, you will be greeted every morning with a smile from the courteous and dedicated staff, on hand to assist you with your everyday vacation needs. Guest House Jakob Lenz Riga also features a common kitchen with cooking facilities on each floor, where you can cook your meals, prepare a light snack, or sip on your early morning coffee.

If you’ve decided to explore Latvia on your own by car, you can take advantage of the guarded parking lot in the property’s inner yard (subject to availability and surcharge). For longer stays in Riga, you may want to check out the laundry service. This guest house also offers complimentary wireless Internet access both in the rooms and in the reception.

A short stroll away from Riga attractions!

The Jakob Lenz Guest House is a lovely property for a vacation in Riga, Latvia. The lodging lies just a 15 minute stroll from the beautiful Dome Cathedral, the ferry terminal, and many of the other centrally located attractions that Riga has to offer. A must see is the Freedom Monument, located within walking distance from the accommodation. Sports lovers can’t miss out on Skonto Hall/Stadium, situated literally steps away from the property. Why not enjoy a concert at the Riga Arena, the largest concert and event hall in the city? After the show you can enjoy drinks or a great meal in one of the several nearby cafes and restaurants.
