Ekes Konvents is a charming 11-room guesthouse with an unrepentantly good location facing St. Peters church in the center of Old Town. Add some cute décor, and you've got a guesthouse with ambiance galore.
Rooms, seven of which face the church and four which face a quiet courtyard, have boutique touches and eclectic design. One room we checked out had a tulip motif, while others were brightly painted and outfitted with hand-woven bedspreads. All rooms are equipped with soundproofed windows, cable TV and private bathrooms.
Rooms are located both in the hotel's main building and in an adjacent building (with an entrance around the corner). Rooms in the main building, up a gorgeous wooden staircase, tend to be smaller than those next door, especially room #2, which was cute, but quite small.
The "convent" dates back hundreds of years, when a cluster of buildings was transformed into religious housing. This particular convent got a 2005 makeover, resulting in a guesthouse full of historical details and modern amenities.
The entire hotel is non-smoking. Breakfast is included in the price and served at a nearby restaurant. Free Wi-Fi service is available throughout the hotel. Ekes Konvents does not have an elevator. Note: This same "convent" cluster includes the 141-room three-star hotel,

About the Ekes Konvents neighborhood
The "Old Town" is the medieval heart of Riga, a maze of winding cobblestone streets, stony churches and public squares. Most of the city’s main tourist sights are located here, including the Cathedral, St. Peter’s Church, House of the Blackheads, Parliament and the Castle. The Old Town is unsurprisingly also home to a wide range of restaurants, bars, shops and hotels.
