Semarah Hotels is a chain of hotels founded in Latvia, which boasts some truly valuable gems. Resort hotel Lielupe, the four-star Metropole hotel and the elegant Grand Poet design hotel on Rainis Boulevard. Each one has its own unique story to tell.

Metropole is proud to be Riga’s oldest continuously running hotel, having opened its doors in 1871. In those days it had the honour of being the first hotel in Latvia to have hot running water in its rooms. Today, the hotel also has a stylish bar where one can enjoy the charm of a bygone era with a variety of drinks and cocktails.


In the beginning of 2018, a new chapter was written in the story of Semarah Hotels with the opening of the Grand Poet hotel on Rainis Boulevard. A hotel with unique design rooms, an upscale restaurant, SPA facilities, a swimming pool and views of Bastion Hill, one of Riga’s most beautiful parks, began accepting guests. The hotel is located in an historic building and during the renovation process special care was taken to maintain its original charm.

Hotel Lielupe is located in one of Jurmala’s most beautiful areas – surrounded by a centuries-old pine forest only 200 metres from the beach at Bulduri. This is one of the most popular beaches on the Baltic Sea coast and the perfect place to relax with your family. It is the largest hotel in the Semarah Hotels chain and includes 264 rooms, an extensive Wellness centre with a 25m-long swimming pool, Turkish bath, Finnish sauna, Jacuzzi and SPA zone, a modern, fully equipped Kids Club, a restaurant and 13 rooms of various sizes for conferences and other events.

We’re not just a hotel chain, just as our guests are not merely guests. We know that many people arrive at our hotels to experience the best times of their lives. Some are here to spend time with their children, who grow up all too fast. Most guests are here with the people they love most. We believe that travelling is one of the most beautiful dreams one can have and the place where we spend the night has an immeasurable effect on our wellbeing and the memories we bring home. We take pride in accepting this massive responsibility and realise that we are a part of each guest’s most passionate dreams and their most beautiful memories. We will do everything in our power to make sure that your dreams come true!
