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

First, I can't understand the poor reviews on this hotel, now that we are here, (as I write this), and have extended our stay by one night. It is v/close to airport, but you don't hear any planes. One of the reasons we grew to really value our stay here was the service. The staff is professional, much more so... More

Consider that you're in Riga with Riga prices. This hotel charges far too much for the stay. The bathrooms are really horrible made of plastic(!) fittings like sink etc. They're booking system says that the beds in double room are double beds but they don't fit two adults. The breakfast was under all expectations. More of a one star hotel... More

I had been staying in Siauliai but as I had an early flight decided to move to Riga and so I stayed here one night only before flying home. It was very good value for B&B and was chosen for it's location. It was great to be in a hotel which was clean, a proper shower and the shower water... More
