“Average stay in a good location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

A friend and I spent two nights at the hotel as part of a larger trip through the Baltic countries. We primarily chose the hotel based on price and location. Here's a summary of our stay:

The good:
- good location easily walkable from old-town, but a bit removed from the noise
- nice views of the old and new parts of the city
- clean room with relatively comfortable beds
- free Wi-Fi internet worked well throughout the hotel, including the room
- good breakfast selection included in room rate

The so-so:
- room was small with little space to move around
- lobby had very little sitting areas and was always packed with huge tour groups
- AC in the room did not work very well, and the staff was apathetic about this

The bad:
- lots of noise from rooms above, as well as from the hallway
- staff at the front desk were generally unhelpful. For example, the ATM in the lobby ate my credit card and the staff was totally unhelpful and non-empathetic. The response was simply to "call your bank, there's nothing we can do".
- charge to access the top-floor lounge, even for hotel guests

In general, this was an average stay in a hotel that was nice enough for a few days and in a good location, but with no special "extras" that made the stay particularly memorable. The service was nothing special and the hotel was always packed with large tour groups (it's clear that this is the market they are catering for). I would consider the hotel again if the price was right but probably would not go out of my way to stay here.

A good location in central Riga ,, I arrived via a bus from Vilnius , hotel 10 to 15 mins away by foot and only a few lats by metered taxi. A bit large and impersonal but room cleans and staff very proficient, great view over the park plus good quality breakfast to set you up for a day’s exploring.

Very busy place at night given there's a casino and sports bar attached to the hotel. Good lobby bar with a fair amount of action. Easy walk into old Riga from the hotel. Small check-in desk and antiquated technology, so plan for this to take a while. Overall, a nice place that I would stay again if in Riga.

Really clean hotel rooms on the small side. Gourmet restaurant and deli next door have lovely cakes. You have to walk quite a distance to find a restaurant outside of the hotel. Hot breakfast was cold as all the countries around here seem to make.

Had a standard room on 21st floor with a view of the Old Town. Absolutely fantastic view!!! There is also an elevator with glass walls to enjoy the view as well. Front desk staff was not overwhelmingly friendly, but fast and efficient. Reception area seemed kind of crowded most of the time. The A/C seemed tricky and we could not get the room to cool down below certain temperature, but maybe it was just us. Excellent breakfast (really wide selection of cold and hot food, vegetables, fish, meat, fruits, yogurts, cereals, etc.). Decent WIFI connection (sometimes it was hard to connect, but when it would connect it works fast). Great location (about 15 minutes walk to the Old Town). They have their own parking (I think it was 10 lats or so per day). Very clean rooms and bathrooms. Would recommend this place, especially if you can get a room with a view.
