I was here for one night only, noticed nothing extreeme. Cheap hotel with cheap interior and service, but it does help to spend the night. Defenatly nothing too positive, but when the young man was changed by the young lady, service quality become better.

Rooms are simplistic but do the job. Was disappointed we had a twin room and they didnt have any double rooms, even though they weren't full. Receptionists were brilliant, helpful and attentive at all times.

It's a bus drive from the center, but I wouldn't recommend it to anybody. There was piles of dust on the floor, the bedsheets was not clean and the electricity didn't work. The breakfast was clearly too old and just terrible. But the worst part was definitely the service. They were just extremely rude.

Satisfied to get my own room, but that's about it. The room had good size, but was stained and the bed was terrible. Bathroom had shards from the tiles and you could hear everything that goes on in the rooms around and outside. BUT it is cheap and if you don't have high standards it will be fine.

This hotel has such serious health and safety issues it would be closed down if in the UK. Apart from the few staff working there who were helpful and friendly there is nothing to recommend it. Pay a little extra and find somewhere nicer and closer to town. Examples: Shower cubicle covered in mould, nasty little beds with very cheap... More

We went on a deal, so we were not sure of the accommodation. When we arrived we first saw the stairs, carpet was coming loose and missing in places, apart from what this looks like, it is also extremely dangerous. The bedroom had a dirty old carpet, old worn, stained mattresses on the beds with the springs literally poking through,... More

The thing was, as we are massive Robbie Williams fans when he announced a gig at Arena Riga we did what we normally do and booked the closest hotel to the arena, it's literally across a very small road! As most of our time wasn't spent in the hotel it didn't really matter what it was like, if that makes... More
