PULL­MAN RIGA OLD TOWN

The Pullman Magazine - - Openings - 37

This sum­mer 2016, Pull­man opened its very first ho­tel in the Baltic States in the heart of the Lat­vian cap­i­tal. As the name im­plies, the Pull­man Riga Old Town thrones in the mid­dle of the World Her­itage-listed his­tor­i­cal cen­tre of Riga. Adding two brand new build­ings to an ex­ist­ing piece of land­mark ar­chi­tec­ture dat­ing back to the late 18th cen­tury, the unique de­sign fuses tra­di­tion and moder­nity. The happy cou­pling of con­tem­po­rary de­sign and na­tional her­itage ex­tends to the build­ing's in­te­rior, which used to house the for­mer horse sta­bles of the Baron Mün­chausen, now lend­ing its name to to­day's fusion cui­sine restau­rant Equus. Bring­ing a fas­ci­nat­ing touch to the cap­i­tal's his­tor­i­cal cen­tre does not, how­ever, make the Pull­man Riga Old Town less of an ex­em­plar of com­fort and state-of-the-art fa­cil­i­ties. Lo­cated within five min­utes' walk­ing dis­tance from Riga Congress Cen­tre, the ho­tel ev­i­dences its com­mit­ment to tech­nol­ogy with a so­phis­ti­cated busi­ness hub and 8 con­fer­ence rooms, two of them with an in-house ca­pac­ity of 150 and 200 par­tic­i­pants. When it comes to leisure, Pull­man Riga Old Town fea­tures a Pull­man Fit, a Pull­man Spa, an in­door pool and many more ser­vices for pro­fes­sional and hol­i­day guests alike to re­lax in a peace­ful set­ting.
