Was well received and well looked after immediately. People make the difference and the staff was very nice to me. Thank you very much. Kristaps at front desk found out I was from Canada. My name is Albert and he immediately asked if I was from Alberta, when I answered yes he could not believe and we were friends thereafter.
Convenient to the railway station and within easy walking distance of the city centre - opera house nearby, old town a little further. Art nouveau district a little further. The room was comfortable and compact. Breakfast lacked grapefruit juice and the coffee wasn't that good. Front desk staff helpful. The hotel is served by the half hourly Air Baltic minibus from the airport, tickets available on line in advance.
Stayed two nights. The hotel is nice. Our room was a bit querky. The windows were tiny and I mean tiny, you wouldn't want to be clostrophobic. But it was nice. It was a bit dusty the bed spread was a little grubby (sheets and duvet were fine).
Had a good sleep on the first night. The second night were kept awake by the guests next door. It was like the were in our room. We could hear everything! Called reception and eventually the called the room and it was fine after that. Had dinner there one of the nights and it was fabulous and the dining room is beautiful.
Breakfast had a good selection of food but service could be better I thought.
We'd enjoy our stay dispite being kept awake one of the nights.

Views nice near hotel. Reasonable walk to the sights of the old town. Shopping close by but we were not interested much in that. Area seemed safe, no incidents. Area in good physical shape. The hotel overall was OK although could use a bit of refurnishing
Thoroughly enjoyed the stay at this hotel. The best hotel I have stayed at in terms of value for money. The staff are helpful , informative and were also fluent in English. The breakfast spread was excellent and catered for all taste. Rooms were comfortable and clean as was the whole hotel. Although the walk to the Old City is 20 mins or so, the trolley bus links were very good and inexpensive.
Lovely hotel and a nice walk into Old town which was pretty with lots to see. Food at all restaurants was good and reasonably priced. Hotel staff and locals were friendly and helpful I would definitely visit again.

Great hotel in good location. We were able to walk to all tourist attractions we wanted to visit. Great selection of food to choose from at breakfast time. Enjoyed drinks in the sky bar with a great view over Riga and had tapas in the D'vine bar within the hotel complex. Would definitely recommend this hotel.
