This makes a very pleasant change from the typical soulless experience most airport hotels offer.The receptionist was helpful and friendly, the room clean comfortable and spacious, and an above average dinner made this an excellent stay. As my flight was too early, I missed breakfast even though the hotel was ready to offer something even at 4 am! The bonus... More

Free shuttle service makes this hotel an airport hotel, very polite and helpful driver. Reception staff was extremely helpful as well. Big and very clean room. A little cold room and bathroom. A little hard bed but ok. Acceptable breakfast though choice could be better. I can absolutely recommend this hotel.

We stayed for one night as our flight to Riga landed late. We stayed near the airport instead of paying for an extra night in the city centre. The Best Western was a good hotel for what we wanted. The room was large and had been cleaned to a good standard. There was no A/C but as it wasn't that... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, it was such a nice break for us. Great staff, very helpful and friendly! Close to airport. Free shuttle. Very nice and quiet hotel with a big garden- we had some beer outside, so relaxing. Also we had dinner in hotel's restaurant and it was excellent. Breakfast was very good. We definitely will come...

Our family of four including two children of 9 and 11 stayed here having arrived from Aberdeen and on our way to Belarus. The hotel was close to the airport and the city centre and we found it easily. Room was spacious, clean and welcoming. Breakfast was very good and we found no problems or reasons to be unhappy with... More

For a visitor to Latvia, Hotel Mara offers an excellent rest stop. It is located in a quiet, country setting away from the crowds of the city. Hotel Mara offers comfortable clean rooms, excellent breakfast, quality restaurant meals, a bar lounge. The service staff is very caring to see that all your needs are met.

Close to the airport, but you need transfer. The free transfer worked good. Simple, but ok if you want to stay close to the airport. Breakfast ok. Nice staff. You get what you expect - not more or less. Value for money.

It was recommended that a colleague and I stay there. It's functional, but I can't say I would rush back. We ate there one evening and my colleague had his meal served and had eaten it before mine arrived - it was average. Also has music coming through the walls of the bedroom on the last of 3 nights that... More

I stayed 2 nights in this hotel. Good value for the price. Just a little bit disappointed on the hotel restaurant: it says on the site that there is a restaurant but actually, the evening restaurant is not working during the week (just week-ends). If you wish something better than a snack or fast food, you need to go elsewhere.... More

I chose the hotel because it was close to the airport for my very early flight and did not want to spend a lot or be pampered. The location was a surprise as it was so isolated from businesses and among fields and trees. But this was lovely for relaxing after weeks of travel, especially on the front patio. The... More
