Great Location!

Just minutes away from the Opera House, public park, Old town by walking, and also to the train/bus station which is 1 minute away from hotel. This hotel was very clean. Too bad that the place ran out of fans, as the hotel is does not have central air. They have a key-electricity system, and the vents shut off automatically if you do not leave your card in the room. So the front desk recommend I leave a key in all the time. Too bad that the cleaning staff removed the card, so it gets hot very fast in the room. I had to air out and try to cool off by taking a cold shower. Wifi connection was not so good. I recommend you go to McDonald around the block and use the wifi - and also cool off, cause they have pretty cheap ice cream and A/C that works. Just a pragmatic approach to dealing with humid day. You have to buy bottled water everywhere. Seems to be the norm. Don't recommend tap water in hotel, cause it has a funky smell. The spa is included but its gets full very fast. better not get suckered into the incentive, unless you actually want to pay for it. Not really into Spa's so can't comment too much. Breakfast included. buffet style. overall, great experience. close to public transit. taxi cab is about 15 euros to airport. Also walking distance to tourist destinations and other hip areas. If you never been to Latvia, you should go! the people are awesome and super friendly. My advice, try and learn a few words of Latvian or Russian before you go. Besides that minor room temperature issue, I recommend this place cause the location is close to old town, and also the non tourist areas like university and the hip stores without the tourist prices. Good times in Riga. Recommend this place.

Great hotel, excellent value.

The hotel is just a short walk from the Old Town and from the central railway station .Rail travel is cheap so it's worth exploring some of the villages outside Riga.The staff on reception spoke English and were very friendly and extremely helpful. The room we stayed in was very clean and well maintained as was the hotel as a whole .The only issue I had with it was that the bathroom was located directly opposite the beds which was embarrassing when it came to using the toilet .Breakfast was very good and well organised and the dining room was clean and smart.In the evening the hotel hired a guitar player and the music was great to listen to during dinner and not too loud to spoil conversation.Overall I thought the hotel was excellent and if I return to Riga I would definitely stay there again.

Nice location

The location of this hotel is just in front of the train station where in the middle of old town and main city area. Most of the public transportation can be also easy to access. In addition, their staff is willing to help and polite. Breakfast is basic but acceptable. Generally speaking, I did enjoy the stay.

Good, not great

The location was convenient to old city, and some of the major sites. Room was plenty big, but was overly hot and had not air conditioning. Hotel is clean and updated, but not too luxurious. Rather basic but new.

Special needs met

Had a problem with drainage in shower ... as soon as we notified the desk it was solved. Traveled with handicapped person and facilities were just as promised. Great breakfasts . No problem setting up a farewell dinner for 15 local cousins at the hotel.

Very Nice Hotel

It's a very nice hotel, rooms are nice and large, very clean and I got one with the city view. The location is great for business since it's close to old town. It's not a romantic place but has a beautiful wellness spa. Has a complimentary breakfast buffet with hot and cold food. The only thing I did not like is the restaurant and the room service is not working on Sundays and Mondays (: You have to go hunt for a food in nearby shopping areas. But there is a Mc Donald's in 1 minute walk.
