Hotel Relais Le Chevalier is an elegant boutique hotel in the heart of the Old Town of Riga, providing a unique experience. Our personalized service and individual room design will make your stay unique and memorable. Hotel Relais le Chevalier is like a piece of France in the very heart of the Old Town of Riga. The interior is the work of French and Italian designers, and the name, which literary means “Knight’s Inn”, brings us back to mysterious medieval France.
Our hotel is located in one of the most famous buildings of Old Riga at 20 Kalku Street. Here in the middle of the 17th century a German physician and biologist Benjamin Fischer founded a pharmacy, which, thanks to the patronage of Fischer’s older brother, who held a high position at court, attained a Royal status. The image of a lion on the facade relief of the building is a symbol of special support from King Charles XI.
According to another legend, the horseshoe, which today is located on the facade of the building, belonged to the horse of Tsar Peter the Great when he was passing by in the 18th century. That is where the name “Le Chevalier” comes from. The Italian designers from Terzomillenium studio have managed to convert the inner courtyard of the old building into an astonishing, full of lights and mirrors atrium of the hotel. We offer you 23 rooms, each made in an individual style with some of them overlooking the atrium or Livu square. Free high-speed internet is available all over the hotel, round-the-clock reception, free breakfast which is said to be the best in Riga on the sixth floor of the building, from where the towers and spires of the Old Town can be viewed, in-house boutique Chevalier by Akcenty, and many other attractions to be discovered just next-door.
