The three-star Konventa Seta is a big place, offering 141 guestrooms in a sprawling, yet picturesque, hotel complex in the center of Old Town. The property faces St. Peter's Church.
The "Koventa," dates back to the 13th century and, unsurprisingly, used to be a convent before its hospitable reincarnation. Today, the Seta offers 81 standard guestrooms and 60 suites with kitchenettes, along with conference facilities and meeting rooms. The hotel, however, still manages from the outside to look like a medieval collection of shops and homes, all centered about a picturesque courtyard.
Bedrooms are simply furnished and light on personality. Some more spacious rooms are equipped with either a king bed or two twins, standard furniture and views out to the church, courtyard or cobblestone street. Older—and smaller—convent rooms are also available, and boast an even more austere décor. Television and free Wi-Fi make up the short list of in-room amenities. Bathrooms are clean and comfortable, with ample space to store toiletries.
The Konventa Seta does not have the cozy charm of its neighbor, Ekes Konvents, but it would be a good option for groups, older travelers (it is equipped with an elevator) and business travelers.
Breakfast is included in the room rate. Smoking permitted in some rooms.

About the Konventa Seta 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.
