The embassy and Art Nouveau architecture district has long been well known for its unique architecture – everyone can immerse in the atmosphere of luxury of the last century. The adjacent oldest park in Riga – Viesturdārzs – uniquely complements the urban landscape of the city and will allow hotel guests to look at it through the wide panoramic windows.

The project was created by a team of designers from the creative studio CBP, but the management was transferred to SIA “A22 Hotel”. Today, the flight of imagination and mastery of a group of designers has been turned into a unique work of art. This is a place for those who looking for something unique instead of predictable hotel chains. The created design concept is about modern chic and seductive atmosphere. The history of the building and the vision of the design team are vividly embodied in every detail, reflecting the desire and ability to surprise guests. Selected interior tones and rich profiles create a feeling of exquisite luxury.


Each of the hotel’s rooms has its own mood, style and layout

The design combines both design icons and lesser-known brands, such as the exclusive “Moooi” and “Bert Frank” luminaires, and more democratic solutions. In order to maintain cost-effective use, many interior elements are created by designers themselves on paper and individually implemented by carpenters and other craftsmen. The atmosphere of the rooms is complemented by a modern sound system, which allows you to enliven your stay in pleasant vibrations. Guests will be offered to enjoy “Le Labo” brand cosmetics, which is a New York-based brand and is iconic not only in its non-traditional expression, but also in luxury.

As a key fact, it should be mentioned that in 1939, the US Embassy was located in Riga – 22 Ausekļa Street. Interested in international relations, the future President, John F. Kennedy, went on a trip to Europe and the countries of the Soviet Union. In order to make his stay in Latvia as comfortable as possible, the attic floor of the building was rebuilt into comfortable apartments. In 1994, 55 years later, a memorial plaque was affixed to the facade of the building, confirming the fact that the future US President would once live in this building. Today, the same attic floor offers 111 square meters of presidential suites for guests ’convenience. There is a real atmosphere of private luxury, unique design in a combination with modern interior elements and excellent quality furniture.
