Great location in the city centre, spacious room but a little noisy - there is no isolation among the rooms. Excellent restaurant with friendly staff, rich breakfast buffet. It is unfortunately possible to smoke in the hotel bar - smells very badly everyvhere!

Lovely hotel in a fantastic old town location with very friendly and helpful staff who made it all extra special. The food and choice particularly at breakfast was great and facilities including the sauna and team room were superb. Well done.

A great hotel. Not an upper class one a real down to earth hotel. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty. Perfect location and an added extra of transfers available. Worth the price. Thoroughly recommend this to anyone looking for a friendly hotel.

We recently had a three night stay here and loved every minute of it, beginning with the complimentary transfer from the airport. Our driver, who was waiting in the arrivals area, was extremely professional, helpful and courteous. Without a moment’s hesitation, he took our baggage and guided us to the car which was a lovely start to our short break.... More

We stayed for 3 nights this autumn and it was our first time in this hotel in Riga. I have to say it met our expectations. The staff was very friendly and polite, rooms nice and in good shape. Breakfast was amazingly good and we had a dinner at the hotel and it was also fantastic. Highly recommend.

Very good service and nice interior. Quiet rooms. Good food and wine. Smoking is allowed in the bar, which is unusual in this part of the world. The hotel is a previous bank house which one can see in the interiors.
