Breakfast was not the same as before
The Hotel was nice. Compare to previous visit the only point that was not the same was the quality and diversity of breakfast table. In the past the selection was much more and made this hotel different from all the other hotels I have visited in Riga. However, now the selection was much more limited. Most probably because of Covid-19. However, it has resulted in making the hotel less competitive when you compare it with other hotels that are cheaper in Riga.
