I stayed in the Rixwell Gertrude Hotel for 3 nights. We were on a budget so didn't expect much for the price we paid. However the experience in the hotel was excellent. I have stayed in similar hotels elsewhere where the price has been higher so for this reason it is certainly value for money. The building is laid out... More

All I can say is wow! Upon arrival, we were greeted by a polite member of staff, who checked us in and gave us our room cards etc. Being a black woman in Latvia, I assumed I would be treated a little differently, but no, everybody was extremely courteous and happy. Stayed in the hotel for a total of eight... More

This was a hotel obtained at a reasonable price and is within a fifteen to twenty minute walk to the Old Town. The staff at the hotel are extremely friendly, talk good English and are well informed with local information. Taxis are never too much trouble for them to organise and are also at a reasonable price. The bar reception... More

We arrived at the hotel for a short city break between Xmas and new year. This is a perfect hotel in walking distance of the old town. Staff were very friendly and an issue with shower was resolved immediately. Breakfast was excellent, if at times, a little busy. Would highly recommend this hotel for city break and the 15/20 minute... More

We stayed 4 nights at this hotel and found it to be clean and comfortable with friendly and helpful staff. I think it's 4* status is questionable,however our room was cleaned daily, and was comfortable and warm. There's a few things that could do with a little more attention, the radiators make a very loud growling noise if they are... More

Nice, clean hotel. Our room was spacious and quiet (room 508). Breakfast served until 11, nothing to complain about except the cooked eggs ( they were not five minutes eggs as they said). Otherwise lots of choises to choose from. The hotel is a twenty minute walk from the old town, you can take the bus nearby if you prefer... More

Room was large clean and well appointed. Breakfast not brilliant. Was a trek into the old town. Not much available around the hotel. Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast room tiny and rammed with furniture. Moving around tables very difficult. However for the price it did what it said on the tin .

This smallish hotel is on the outside of the "old town" tourist ghetto. This means the location is quieter and more peaceful. Best way to connect to other places is the public transport. Just buy a multi-day ticket at the airport and you are set! From the hotel you can walk to the nearest tram stop in 5-7 minutes and... More
