The girls at reception were so helpfull. We could not fault any of them. Breakfast was all that was needed for everyone taste. Flights from aberdeen to Riga great. Enjoyed city bus tour. Cathedrals, 5d simulated tour of Riga. Food. We just enjoyed everything.
Easy to reach from the airport. Easy walking distance to most central sights and the throb of the City's nightlife yet quietly situated away from noisy drinkers and musicians when it was time to turn in. My loft room was clean and cool, with an exceptionally large bath.
I was warmly greeted. As I had prepaid through Expedia, everything was ready. I was in my room within five minutes of entering the lobby. The room was clean. I was not expecting the particular set up of the room. It's rather open, but the bathroom does have a frosted glass door. It was a very comfortable room and was within easy walking distance of anything I wanted to see the evening I spent in Riga. Excellent choice.
Stayed in this elegant hotel for four nights and can't fault the place. The rooms were large, comfortable and beautifully decorated. The staff were helpful and friendly and the buffet breakfast was good with a variety of choices. Had dinner once in Benjamin's restaurant and the food was excellent. Definitely recommend this hotel.

Dating back to 1876 this elegant mansion house hotel is located in the centre of Riga, just 500 metres from the old town. The …More
A lovely hotel that once formed part of an old church. You are reminded of this by the deliberate partial exposure of old brick through the rendering.
Another nice touch were old relics found during the renovation displayed on the 3rd floor landing......a military forage cap dating around the mid to late 19th century and some old nails etc....
The room was pleasant & I particularly liked the old wardrobe. There is a good selection of food to suit all tastes at breakfast.
The staff were a little aloof, only one receptionist was warm and smiley, all other receptionists I met & the breakfast staff were unsmiling and reserved. This might be part of the cultural behavior in Riga. Whilst out & about in town I held the door open at the entrance of a shopping mall twice & received no acknowledgement of thanks. But the hotel has a nice old worldy ambiance that I really liked. I would certainly recommend it due to it's central location in the old part of town and for anyone who enjoys staying in places with a sense of history.
This hotel serves as a great home base in Riga. It's one short block to Old Town and the lively Livu Square with dining and music. One block the other direction and you are at the Freedom Monument -- Riga's landmark. Unlike hotels located in the restricted access of Old Town, this hotel is easy and cost effective for cabs. Bus and trolleys are easily accessible, too. Situated at the same intersection as Laima Clock, this is the main place for meeting of Riga people and guests. This is the bustling location where Old Town meets the prime commercial district. Location, location, location.
The Scandinavian breakfast is a great way to start the day. Lots of delicious choices. The beautiful view makes the morning cup of coffee that much more enjoyable.
