Clean and nice room with a bathtub, good breakfast buffet and lovely service. The only negative was that you couldn't see the Old city through the room windows as they were very high up on the wall and facing another building. A great value for money and very much recommended.

paper thin walls. Neighbours tv blaring away at 1am! Food in resturant bland. Dont bother eating here and of you want a restful night stay somewhere else. No milk in room to make coffee. Hotel was very clean, but what good is that when you cant sleep for noise. Not worth the money. Dont bother staying here!!

We had some difficulty finding the place and the roads are cobbled and narrow so difficult to walk. Its closer to the bus stop side of old town soif you are coming from the airport, get off at the main bus stop. We didnt realize that and got off earlier so hadto actually walk through the old town (actually very... More

We arrived for a 3 night stay after booking a couple of months before via Booking.Com We booked a economy double room (or so we thought). As I didn't request the room to be double we ended up with a twin room (2 singles) for my girlfriends birthday weekend... We couldn't even upgrade as the hotel was full for the... More

For the first 2 nights we stayed in their suite (115) which had its own sauna and jacuzzi!!! Every thing was very clean and the staff were all very helpful. Daily breakfast is a little lackluster and the mattresses are a little on the hard side. Don't stay in room 227 as it is opposite the cleaning staffs closet and... More

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 The theme of the hotel, although a little outdated, was somewhat cute and quirky.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....
