“Fun and quirky.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2011 for a stay in November 2011

We had a lovely time in this apartment. Kristine, the owner, was very flexible and easy to work with. The flat has thick stone/brick walls, with arches throughout. Watch your head if you're on the tall side. The decorations were original, and gave a sense of fun. Perhaps the best feature was the working fireplace and supply of wood. Fast, easy wi-fi was also nice. There's a flat-screen tv which gets no channels, but we brought our iPod cable and watched movies we'd brought with us. There's a stereo and a small selection of CDs and movies on DVD.
The bed was on the sparse side, but comfortable enough.
What's not obvious from the website is that there are no windows at all. This goes along with it being a basement flat, but we hadn't figured it out until we got there. It wasn't an issue for us, but know before you go.
The flat is spacious overall, with a small efficiency kitchen. There's everything you need for small-scale cooking, but you wouldn't want to do more than fry a couple of eggs.
The bath is tiny.
It's a beautiful flat, tons of fun if you have the right mindset. If you want a modern, standard hotel room, book elsewhere. If you're a bit quirky, willing to be flexible in some points so you can stay in an incredibly original, beautiful flat, with more room and a better rate than you'd ever get in a hotel, than this could be the place for you.

“Malo y nada comodo”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014 for a stay in March 2014
Google Translation

Primero me llevaron a un apartamento en un edificio muy viejo, al subir al apartamento apestaba y al entrar dejaba mucho que desear.
Fui a quejarme y en 2 días me resolvieron dándome otro departamento mas confortable pero sin internet, el problema es que en este edificio era el único departamento habitable y todo el edificio estaba en remodelación por lo que diario no podíamos dormir del ruido que había, de echo era tan fuerte la construcción que vibraba el apartamento y se cayeron unos vasos, para mala suerte mia uno de los vaso cayo sobre mi Tablet y la estrello, ya no hice quejas y lo que hice me fui a vilnius 4 noches teniendo el departamento en riga, lo rente por 3 semanas, la ciudad no es ni lo que fue hace 7 años y el departamento pudo estar mejor si no hubiese estado la remodelación, falta algo mas de limpieza en el departamento, no vayan a Riga
