Excellent location, plain rooms

Posted 08-Jul-2014
The hotel location was excellent. In the middle of the old town, close to everything but the courtyard allows for calm and quiet. The room was a bit plain, almost spartan but it was comfortable; also immaculate and roomy. The breakfast was good.

good location

Posted 09-Jun-2014
Pros: the hotel has an historic story to tell.
Cons: the breakfast can get a bit busy at 9am so you might have to hang around untill a table comes free,
Location: the location is very good, only a two minute walk to the main area of the old town, and no more than 30 minutes to most of the museums and POI.
This visit was part of my quest to visit all the Balkan states and I was not dissapointed with Riga. Plenty to do and see and all within a very small area thus making it easy to get around on foot. There are plenty of eating places catering for all tastes and at a good price. Museums and places of interest are plentifull and like the other states very cheap to get in. Dont neglect the fire brigade museum and the Tv tower, just because they are the furthest away 20 minute walk!!

This hotel has a great location and is just minutes away from all the great destinations in Old Town. My only complaint was that the beds were lumpy and broken down and need to be replaced.

Central Old Town location

Clean rooms, convenient location and good breakfast selection - but be sure to ask for a room in the main building as the second building doesn't have a lift!

excellent value

This city centre hotel is excellent for being in the historic heart of Riga and providing comfortable accommodation and superb value without the flummery of grand chain establishments. Excellent for casual and relaxed tourists.

In old town

Posted 13-May-2014
We were in a junior suite. Adequate but minimal facilities. No tea/coffee making facilities in room. Excellent buffet breakfast. It appeared that hotel had a lot of coach yours as guests. Quiet location.

Strange hotel...

Posted 08-May-2014
Pros: cleaniness, very good breakfast, ancient building, location
Cons: Staff should be more attentive to clients requests
Location: Historical centre
In general, everything here is ok - breakfast, cleaniness, location (historical centre of Riga). But... The room was very strange. Don`t believe the pictures of rooms - only your eyes. When I booked the room, I was satisfied with the picture, but in reality it was absolutely another room - smaller and narrower. The most strange thing that it was (from the words of staff) the same category of rooms that i booked (Junior suite). View from the window - it's something terrible - some hardware patio 2 to 6 meters ... And constantly working ventilation of the restaurant - hard to sleep at night ... Secondly, when I booked, I asked for me and my wife 1 king-size bed, but they gave me the room with two separated beds... I asked to change the room - they refused! Impressions from Riga were a little spoiled ...

The hotel is extremely basic and at the low end of anything comparable in Riga. I would not recommend this to anyone other than budget travellers.
