"Excellent hotel in great location for the Old Town"
We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The rooms were clean and well equipped, with a good range of toiletries etc. There was an excellent range of food at the buffet breakfast, and a good choice of evening meals.
The hotel is in a narrow street, so there are no great views, but it takes only a few minutes to walk into the heart of the old town and the river, or to the station and the market.
A half-hour train journey takes you to a long sandy beach at Jurmala.
My wife and I arrived early at the hotel, having travelled from the airport by the Airport Express bus service which dropped us off at the hotel for the modest price of 5 Euros each. We were welcomed warmly and efficiently and our room was ready. The double superior room was well appointed with a range of good quality toiletries and was in excellent decorative order. The room was clean, warm and comfortable and very quiet considering its central location on one of Riga's main streets. The breakfast offered a good selection of hot and cold foods, regularly replenished and the staff were very efficient at clearing tables and were polite and attentive at all times. Before our departure the staff arranged for the bus to pick us up to return to the airport and it arrived on time.
"Spacious room with best views of the main churches"
Comfy, friendly hotel. Nice large rooms. Hotel restaurant has great food and recommended on many restaurant review sites. Right in Old Town and close to many of the top tourist sites, but cobbled streets through most of the Old Town keep it quiet at night.
Lovely comfortable room with huge king size bed. The reception staff are friendly and helpful. The room was very quiet. Great location for walking through Old Town to the canal and the parks. Easy to get to by car. Breakfast was good, and they will make omelets, soft boiled eggs, or fried eggs upon request at no extra charge.
