“best hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Beautifully designed and furnished B&B and a warm welcome by the manager. Walking distance to local pub with lovely pub food. Fabulous breakfast too. I will always try to book here in future when we head to Riga for a city break. The personal touch makes all the difference to just being a room number in a big hotel.

I loved it I loved it I loved it... :-) such an experience for me and my kid when we stayed at the hotel A1, quite near to the city center. During this time we felt so welcome--especially when we met the owner of the hotel and my kid had a chance to play billiards with them, even receiving some good advices. We learned that each painting in the hotel rooms had been originally made by the owners of the A1 hotel... that's quite unique! The room was cozy and the atmosphere of the hotel during our trip was very relaxing. A good walking distance to the city, too--which we loved so much. Easy access to the city transport too. Thank your for the nice hospitality!

The location is fantastic, rooms are all clean and the hotel is well kept.
. Stuff quite friendly, with good English. We were early in the hotel and they give us a room before official time of check-in. Quite good breakfast.

As part of my work i travel a great deal, so i am used to all standards of hotels, the 5 star that really are 3 stars, but very occasionally i find a 3 star that really is much more, the hotel is built on top of a billiard club, this will turn many people away, but they should look further because as you climb the stairs to the rooms you will see that everything starts to become very new, the rooms are everything that i require, a good quality bed, a working area with free wifi, a large TV with two English channels, a good toilet area with walk in shower and the breakfast is just the job to set you up for a day of looking around the old city, underneath the hotel on the main street there is a Georgian restaurant for people that like Russian food, but i found just one block away a restaurant called the Steak Haus, obviously this is a steak house but i have never tasted beef as succulent as here. Getting away from the food, the hotel is a good 10 minutes walk from Old Riga, there are buses and trams that pass every 5 minutes.
This is a no frills hotel, but it is very clean and well managed, the price per room is 30 lats per day, considering what you get it is very good value, i will definately be going back.

Room Tip: The hotel is new so all the rooms are good

Stayed here with a group of friends,
Rooms were fine, very basic.
No food available in the hotel other then breakfast.
Bar was ok not very comfortable of one table and some bar stools, lots of snooker/pool tables.

Best part of staying here was the staff very friendly and helpful full of advice and help.

The hotel location is good, 15-minute walk from the city center.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms are tidy.
As for the minuses, absence of air conditioner was disappointing, as it was pretty warm outside. Breakfasts were rather modest.
On the whole, the impression was rather good.
