A couple stayed in early August 2014

Posted 05-Aug-2014
Pros: Nice location, close to Old Town. And it was quiet at night.
Cons: The room-service along three days did not supply shampoo. Asking the receptionist to help with extra shampoo did not help either.
Miniature room and tiny bathroom with tired furniture and rubbish floor.

Perfectly located for a city visit.

Posted 02-Aug-2014
Pros: Friendly staff, location.
Cons: Minor repairs, replace some room carpets.
Location: Brilliant for sightseeing, shops, and theatre / nightlife.
Hotel location as mentioned is excellent. Front of house, bar and restaurant staff were all very efficient and helpful and sadly had to make up for my lack of ability with the Latvian language (all were English proficient) Had bed and breakfast fare, the food was of a good standard and plentiful selection (though chef needs to learn to fry bacon) ordered an item at 10:30 in the evening from the bar menu, the food presented was exceptional for the price (impressed). Room comfort was good but cleanliness could be improved with carpet renovation and slight repair work to the bathroom bath/shower seal which allowed water to leak through to the floor (this has happened over time as evidence suggests but its simple repair work that can make all the difference) and need attention.

Excellent hotel in great location for the Old Town

Posted 02-Aug-2014
Pros: Rooms were well equipped, staff were friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was superb.
Location: The hotel is near the heart of the old town. Highlights for us were a city walking tour, and the views from the top of the tower at St Peter's Church.
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.

Perfect

Posted 26-Jun-2014
In a word, fantastic. A spotless room with robe, slippers. Location us amazing: in the old town, across the street from a supermarket, a block from the Opera. An exceptional restaurant -- the best food I had in Latvia, inventive and beautifully prepared. The staff is outstanding! An ATM machine ate my debit card on the eve of the national holiday. Alex on the desk contacted the bank to block the card and got my through to American Express to make sure it was cancelled.

Great hotel for the money

Posted 18-Jun-2014 on Hotels.com
Hotel was in a great location being less than five minutes from anything in the city centre. Unlike some of the reviews, we found the rooms to be very quiet at night, so no problem sleeping. Only slight fault was the breakfast service which can become very busy at times. This results in food and crockery running out. However, not a big issue and overall, a great stay.

Great location

Posted 12-Jun-2014 on Hotels.com
This was an ideal spot to see all the attractions in Riga. The Old Town is just out the door and everything is near to hand. We found our way round no problem but the English speaking staff were very helpful with directions and help. Breakfast was buffet style and plentiful. Lots of choice, always hot and whwn the coffee machine went on the blink the lovely lad in the breakfast room went to get coffees from the bar. The rooms were clean and spacious and the mini bar was handy. I only had one quibble and that was that there were only 4 coat hangers. A great break.

Great location

Overall the hotel was very good, but the breakfast arrangements are completely chaotic. The coffee/tea machine was out of order for both days we were there, cold milk turned out to be in the teapot, and there were not enough staff to keep pace with the demand for clean cutlery and crockery. Shame, because it spoilt the overall impression.
