The hotel itself is pretty old. There was one girl, Alexandra who was extreamly rude, not polite at all at check in ( other staff members were average). Located at the outskirts of the historic center . The suite is large, with dated furniture, very weak internet signal, big fridge, un confortable bed, TV with few english channels, and you... More

Quiet and nice hotel close to the sightseeing areas of the old town of Riga. The staff was friendly and attentive. The room was small and a bit cramped but was clean. We stayed in an economy room that had no windows what made it feel a bit claustrophobic. However, the bed was comfy and we had a very good... More

We spent 5 nights from Friday August 8th in this hotel. We found it a very nice place. Our room was a superior double room on the 4th floor with air-conditioning . I think it was important to have air-conditioning since it was very warm and in the evening if the window was open trains were very loud. The room... More

Stayed there for 2 nights and at first I was excited to be in a hotel that has 4 stars, but honestly, I have no idea how they have earned their stars. The whole hotel smells like 1970's, it's dark in there and feels more like a hostel. It is very noisy and since there are a few strange places... More

I took a double room for 3 nights via Booking.com and was very pleasantly surprised with the place. The public bus from the airport knew the place so dropped me right outside the hotel. Room was small but had everything I could ask for (except they could've offered a complimentary bottle of water). Breakfast had a wide variety of Latvian... More

This hotel is below average in Riga. I've been in many different places from 60 to 100 eur range and this is one of the worst experiences. Some rooms are facing the street which can be noisy until 5 am, left wing of the hotel doesn't have a lift, service in the restaurant is slooooow and quality is below average.... More

We had the suite on the first floor and the room was big and had a great atmosphere. There was a full size fridge-freezer in the room and a lot of closets. The bathroom could look nicer, but the jacuzzi was spacious and we had our own sauna. We were travelling with our 5 months old baby and were delighted... More

Nice and cheap. Located within 5 minutes walk from the Old Riga. All staff are very nice, friendly and helpful. Also they serve pretty nice breakfast. The best room - is the room on the first floor with a balcony.

This hotel is in a great location only a short walk from the centre of Riga and it's shops, bars, restaurants and many other tourist attractions. The hotel itself is clean although I'm sure that it would get more than a 3 star rating in the UK. As part of a large party I saw a number of the rooms.... More

The hotel is 5 mins walk from the bus/train station and convenient for the airport bus (22). The welcome on check I was fine and our room on the third floor was accessible by lift but then involved going up and down 2 sets of stairs - not a problem for us but could be for others. Our room (32)... More
