Typical three star hotel located in the suburb of Riga. Clean ,bot not stylish - cheap room /bathroom interiors with small TVs ,creaky floors ,worn-out beds. Good : small restaurant & bar till 11.pm., breakfast above the 3 star minimum ,free parking - and really low room prices .

The most striking thing about this unremarkable hotel was, in my room a shower so powerful I felt I was in danger of emerging skinless from the shower. The location half way from the airport and the city is uninspiring, but there are regular trolley buses and buses from 500m over the road. The breakfast is good and the on... More

We booked this hotel for 3 nights without an option to cancel. We have used public transport to tour the Baltic countries with no problem. However, When we arrived in Riga, we had a terrible time finding this hotel. It is located in an obscure, dirty and remote area. No cafés or restaurants close to the hotel. It takes a... More

It pains me to not rate this hotel as 'Very Good' because actually as other reviews highlight, there are plenty of positives here. The staff however could improve this place massively if they just learnt to smile. Other than the hotel driver who was very friendly I do not recall during our four day stay a welcoming smile at reception,... More

The hotel is a traveler's dream come true drivers traveling. Outside there is a fenced in area for car storage. Center is to some extent, but your car is in motion it does not matter. The hotel is wonderfully quiet, not a nightclub or other or next to the hotel. The rooms were clean - although the beds were a... More

Wonderful place. Clean, nice, modern. Amazing breakfasts! The only disadvantage is locanion. It is quite problematic to get to the centre, the area around looks dirty and ugly. But if you travel by car - you'll not find a better place.

Although this hotel is not the historic district of Riga, it certainly is well connected to both the city and the airport. The historic area is only a short bus ride away. The rooms are well apportioned, clean and very comfortable. The staff is very helpful and internet connection was good. I did not try the breakfast, since we used... More

Very good value for money. The room was nice and very clean - excellent shower. The breakfast was amazing. Good location, close to the airport and walking distance to buses that go into Riga centre. No.27 trolleybus will take you into the centre of Riga in 20 minutes. There is free Wi-Fi internet and an information station. Overall, nice hotel,... More
