In contrast to common believe Hotel Riga is not named after the capital city of Latvia. It is the merchant in travel suitcases, Marcel who gave the shop his family name. Since the beginning of the 20th century the place was well known throughout the city of Antwerp and beyond. This heritage has been respected in the design by Wastiau architects. Several elements were preserved, and new ones added to the concept. The beautiful hotel has 12 different styled, luxury rooms and a spacious food bar downstairs.
