really enjoyed my stay, the staff were accommodating, the rooms were nice, and the location was perfect. It's dated but has a great atmosphere - we didn't want a cold, modern shell. My only complaint was the coffee was cold, but the amazing latvian breakfast made up for it!

The location is OK. The WiFi was weak. The rooms were nice but too small and the bathroom was not so clean. The staff was friendly but I think the hotel is somewhere between 2 and 3 stars. The hotel looks nice on the inside but everything seams to be packed to save room. Only hotel in Riga I visited... More

Hotel staff was very friendly. The theme of the hotel, although a little outdated, was somewhat cute and quirky. The rooms were very private and soundproof, which is great. The location was also perfect. The only problem we had was the bed felt very hard (back aches the next morning). Other than that, it was a comfortable stay.

Ideally located hotel, close to the old town, the railway station and 50 m. from the bus stop to the airport. Beautiful furniture in the room and modern bathroom, all very clean. Nice breakfast to start your day. Staff was friendly and helpful. And oh yes, the wifi signal in the room was quite strong.

Stayed two nights and location is great for old town and the new town. Easily accessed from bus station and quiet place to stay. Room were okay, the hotel is quirky and getting a bit tired, but was good value and good service. Old Town was disappointing compared to TAllinn or VIlnius, but loved the new town and the gardens....

We stayed 4 nights in Oct 2014 in Junior Suite room. And we would definitely will recommend to stay here! Room: - spacious - nice furniture and red carpets give the room very luxurious look. - jacuzzi worked perfectly and bathroom itself is not small. - it was quite easy to regulate temperature in the room (important for those who...

I don't understand why this hotel Got 4 Stars. I'll maximum give it 3; 1 star for the friendly staff, 1 Star for the location, 1 star to be friendly. The rooms are small and the breakfast okay, but I Think the hotel is old and not modern.

Definitely can't complain about the location of this place – particularly if you're arriving by bus or train. And it really is in the middle of the old town. The hotel itself is nice. The nautical theme is cool, and even though our room didn't have a window (except for a 'fake' window with a light behind it) it was... More

I loved the place! The hotel decorated as a ship (probably that is why there are rooms without windows) and looks very attractive inside. Perfect location; I think this is the closest Old Town hotel to central bus station, to central market and to Stockmann department store and just a bit farther from central train station. From airport, city bus... More

This hotel is an ideal location on the edge of Old Town, just 500m from bus station. A little bit of noise in front facing rooms, but after a day of walking the cobbled streets, sleep happens! Superior rooms have a little more floor space and similar bathroom layouts. Beds are spacious and warm and the in room tea and... More
