Excellent hotel, perfect location.
The hotel is exactly what it says it is = a 4* Conference Hotel.
Nice clean, airy lobby with bar and restaurant area, overlooked by the glass lifts.
Rooms are tidy and well kept with good furnishings and all facilities you would like (ie minibar, safe, iron/board).
Windows are practically soundproof, thus eliminating any external noise, though they can be opened if required.
The location is ideal. Literally straight out the door to Bus no 22 to the airport (1.15 euro each, takes about 20 mins).
It is a 2 minute walk to the main bus station via an underpass. This is also directly outside the "zeppelin hangar" daily market.
Within a minute you can walk straight into the old town of Riga with it's beautiful architecture, churches, monuments and cathedrals.
We struggled to find a lot of traditional Latvian places - it was very big city like, with Subway, McDonalds, KFC, TGI Fridays etc. We did bump into a few though, mainly around the Swedish Gate area.
Despite the name, the Flying Frog is also worth a visit for a traditional main meal.
