Teddy’s home hides just off a busy main pedestrian street in the Old Town, Audēju iela. Get out – and you’ll be immersed into the heart beat of every possible Riga’s fun and happening. Dome’s square is .. as close as 300 metres,
Need peace and rest – just head into XIX-th century arc with elegant “jugendstil” stained-glass and you are in the calm and peaceful hide away.
Safety and privacy mean a lot for us – that’s why Teddy’s hostel has detached private guarded entrance for excusive use of guests and staff. The courtyard is monitored 24-hours by several modern surveillance cameras and “pašvaldības policija” (municipal police) arrive in a couple of minutes, if anything might go wrong.
Teddy’s Riga takes a pride to reside in renowned historical
dwelling, The House of Johannes Reitern. Built in 1684-1688 by rich town
hall member Johann Reitern and by city architect R. Bindenschuh,
Northern-Baroque style masterpiece boasts elaborate stone carvings along
main splendid façade on Mārstaļu street. The house was completely
restored in 1986-1990, so no need to worry about crumbling ceiling :-)
As the building is of major historical importance, certain modern amenities are limited or restricted by the law. Both Teddy and you shall be reaching the home on foot, elevators were not invented in the year 1688!! Everyone needs some exercise, so take your steps up and return from Riga more healthy and fit! Reception and dorm rooms are set up on third floor; double rooms are on forth floor. No-one resides on floors one, two and three, so you have the whole space for your own fun! For most adventurous guests we keep the keys of cellar and romantic attic, which can be privately admired :-)
