Not to be confused with Konventa Sēta next door, the 600-year-old Ekes Konvents oozes wobbly medieval charm from every crooked nook and cranny. Curl up with a book in the adorable stone alcoves on the landing of each storey. Breakfast is served down the block.
Opened in 1435 as the first hotel in Riga and later installed as a boarding school for widows and city's craftsmen, Historical Ekes Konvents 1435 Hotel is currently one of the oldest hotels in Northern Europe. This modern three-storey building is located in the heart of Old Town and features views of St. Peter's and St. John's churches or the Konvent yard from the windows. Because of the hotel’s 15th century origins, all rooms are individually decorated, different in shape and size. Featuring late 18th and early 19th centuries interior, rooms have ancient maps, original drawings, engravings and hand woven blankets. Main sights of the city can be reached within a few-minute walk from Historical Ekes Konvents 1435 Hotel.
