We booked a family room and we got one facing a very busy street. It was very hot and there was no air conditioning in there so we kept the windows open but the noise from the street was unbearable. Also, the hotel advertisement states that breakfast is included. It is not true. They give a 3 Euro voucher per person to be redeemed in a nearby café. It is not enough to buy full breakfast which costs almost 5 Euros and drinks (except coffee) are not included. I spent over 7 Euros.

There is no sign outside the building indicating that the apartments are located there. At night the entrance is in an unlighted archway. If you don't contact the manager by phone you cannot get in. The apartments are on the 4th and 5th floors up steep stairs. Wi-Fi was weak. Room was clean with the bare necessities with shared bath. Staff was friendly and helpful.

clean and large rooms, hot water. stayed three nights switched rooms because one side of the hotel was noise from 3:30am from the market setting up outside. Over priced. I probably would not stay there again. I did not see one other person in the halls.

I have stayed at this hotel twice now. Once in June 2011 when I was travelling on business on my own, and most recently now, August 2011 when I visited Latvia with my husband.
We normally go for no less than 3 stars when it comes to booking a hotel, but because the first time round I needed to book something cost effective on the day of my travels, I decided to give it a go and I do not regret it.
Mainly due to the fact that it is clean.I cannot explain it, but it is not only clean but also does not come with rooms smelling stale.
The location is great if you are looking for something close to the airport.
Nearby you will find big shopping centres, so good news for shopaholics.
There's plenty of parking nearby and the staff are ok. Ok because just like everywhere else in Latvia, the service is "honest" - you will not get those fake smiles and "how are you,sir". it is straight-forward transaction and no hassle. I did not have breakfast in the hotel, but I did get a bottle of water from a fridge that they have near the reception, which is handy at 1 am in the morning.
I would recommend this hotel anytime, and I do hope that they will not change or lower their standards anytime soon- the beds are comfortable, and it was good value for money.
