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.
The hotel is opposite a pleasant park with Oak Trees growing outside. It is in an up-market neighbourhood but only 20 minutes walk from the old town. Our rooms were very comfortable and amongst the largest rooms we have had at hotels in major cities. Each of our rooms had a balcony. They were kept very clean and the mini-bar regularly re-stocked. Wi-fi and airconditionning worked.There was an extremely good buffet breakfast with plenty of choice.At weekends breakfast goes on until 11am which is a plus.We sampled both a meal and driks from the bar and were pleased to have done so. The staff were very helpful, chasing up the airport about our luggage which had been mislaid.
The hotel certainly deserves its 4 star rating.

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.

The only reason I did not rate the hotel facilities and room comfort as excellent is because the smallest noise from neighboring rooms was easily heard in my room. Even footsteps were easily tracked, not to mention closing drawers or doors or children's voices - this made rest at night problematic. Otherwise everything was great.
