Value for money, location was a main priority for us. I would recomend this hotel as budget bed and breakfast, especially after event in Riga arena. Location is just perfect - hotel is at the back of arena.

I booked this hotel via Expedia. When I checked it, suddenly my booking was not valid, I had to take the "last room in the hotel" at a higher rate. It seems this isnt unusual. When I spoke to Expedia, they suggested this is a common occurence with this hotel, they tried to help but the hotel just saw a... More

This is a sub-basic hotel with poorly maintained rooms. The big led sign on top of the opposite building shines all night and takes away your sleep. I asked for a room change but they refused. Your voucher calls it a "buffet breakfast", but it is not: You need to cut a piece from a block of margarine :)

Rooms look a bit tired. But bedding and towels still fresh and crisp. Rooms nice size, no cleaners faults found bud marks on the carpets and walls. Decent size. Reception staff very friendly. Good quality for price.

There is nothing wrong with this hotel, but I wouldn't necessarily recommend it either. The room was big, with a wardrobe, fridge etc. One of the twin beds was incredibly squeaky and I get the impression that a hoover was only used on the exposed bit of carpet as there was quite a lot of dust and stuff on the...

Booked a single room, tv, cupboard, private bathroom. Room was comfortable and very clean as the bathroom that also has hot showers and provided shower gel , shampoo and soap. The location is just a 20 minute walk to the city centre walking down straight along K. Valdemāra street which is near, so it is not too far away from... More

Clean, bright hotel with easy walking access to the city or via bus. Spacious rooms with reasonable bathrooms and a fridge. Breakfast is not too good as it consisted of salami, cheese slices & yogurt. Some sort of fruit juice was also available. Reasonable prices overall and I would recommend this hotel for a short trip.

Ok to choose this hotel if you just consider following: 1) hotel is located just opposite Riga Arena, and unless you have business there, there is absolutely nothing of interest. Small coffeehouse down the road- and a bit further away you will find Super Netto and small shops. 2) Walking into Riga Old Town takes approx. 25-30 mins- there are... More

I cannot complain for what I paid! It is a bit out of town but you are paying less so ok if there are a few of you paying for a taxi back. I was a lone female and Riga seemed too dodgy for me to go clubbing and risk being drunk alone. The hotel is in the middle of... More

If you like it cheap and simple this is your place to stay. No extra glamour, just pure simple standard accomodation. The double room has television with numerous local channels and our favorite channel CNN. The breakfast is totally fine if you do not expect a gourmet breakfast, it has all you need: coffee, tea, eggs, tomatoes, sausages and cheese... More
