Recent guest reviews

The hotel is very closed to the Airport with a big parking ! A bit far to the center of Riga around 10 kms but easy to go ! Room are strandard ! Breakfast also ! You sleep and you leave ! Not a place to stay a longtime

The hotel is conveniently located close to the airport although you still need transportation to get to it. The reception team was very friendly and attentive to our needs. Good location good customer service.

Good location for early or late flight from Riga, only 2km to airport. Free parking, good wifi. Nice thing is that they have a late night menu, you can have soup, salad or burger, and prices are also not bad at all. breakfast was ok. Little outdated, but this wasn't a problem.

Decent little hotel right near the airport. Decent customer service. Fairly good rooms. Restaurant/bar was nice with good food but some of the dishes on the menu weren't available. Sometimes the reception desk doesn't have anyone there to help.

I stayed in this hotel only for a night using it as a B&B since it's near the Riga airport and useful if you need to take a flight early in the morning. The modern rooms are large, suitable for two adults. Toilets in the rooms are equipped with different accessories as hairdryer or different towels. Talking about the staff, they were gentle and kind welcoming us very late in the evening. As requested during the check-in, the staff prepared us the breakfast very early in the morning (also if the kitchen was not open) and this was very appreciate. The hotel offers a big car park in front of it. The structure is not near the city: it's located about 10 km out from the city - airport direction.

The primary advantage of this hotel is proximity to the airport. It's a matter of minutes by car or just two stops away by bus. Moderate pricing. Rooms are simple yet spacious while beds are just great. Smaller details follow the style of simplistic American motels which includes windows, plumbing, lamps, etc. Excellent staff, always friendly, very polite and willing to help. Effective heating. Free speedy wifi with strong signal and numerous access points throughout the premises. Minor inconvenience with hot water which takes a minute to actually get hot. Simple breakfasts offer eggs, sausages, cereals, cheese, bread, coffee, juice, yogurt, some tomatoes and cucumbers. Sauna for an extra fee. Transfer to and from the airport cost 5 Euro. A shopping center 2 stops away by bus. Pleasant overall expression regardless simplicity. I just loved those beds! Ideal between the flights for a nightly stayover or longer layovers. Okay for staying a few days if you don't mind half an hour trip to the city centre. Superior Double on the pictures.

I stayed for a number of nights here and found it great. The staff were very helpful and its located perfect to head in any direction. The room was to a very high standard and slept great. The breakfast was typical and local.

This hotel is slightly off the beaten path of the main sights in Riga and Old Town Riga, but it's right next to the airport and very well run with a complimentary breakfast that can be taken along on your flight. The hotel is very clean and the Canadian owner that we met during our stay took personal concern and paid attention to the food quality in the restaurant. Nice, quiet setting and we always stay there the night before our return flight and will continue to do so in the future.

I stayed at hotel only one night for waiting morning flight to Reykjavik. Hotel is situated near airport, only two stops by bus No 22. If you have big baggage it is possible to call for transfer for 5 Euros. The girl at reception was very helpful, she was smiling and answer all my questions. Room are quiet, clean. there is no air conditioner but it is possible to open window to have fresh air. Wi fi is good. I had a time and I went by bus to big mall "Spice", only few stops. There are good restaurants with Latvian cuisine. Breakfast is very good. I like this hotel.

The hotel is not in the main city but a short ride away. There is a mall that would be possible to walk to with a overhead walk area over the highway. They had areas outside to sit and relax. We arrived there in the morning before our room was ready but they were great about holding our luggage so that we could go into Riga and explore. Everyone went out of their way to be helpful. Riga is a wonderful city and there are not a lot of tourists so it's a great place to visit.
