“Ideal locale but disappointing level of facilities in simple rooms.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2011

We stayed in the front part of the hotel. Very quiet and relaxing environment but lacking simple basics like tea & coffe making facilities. Didn't use the hotel's restaurant as there are loads of eateries nearby. Likewise the bar. Overall it was a nice hotel but the rooms were disappointing.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2011

Very nice hotel and staff for an excellent location.

The rooms are confortable and quiet. Services offer a very good quality.

At least but not last, the restaurant is interesting too and persons of the hotel who serve are friendly.

About this beautiful city :

museums of occupation (free of charge) or museum of navigation are very " attractive " to discover history of the country.

City's architecture is wonderful. The Latvian Museum of Architecture located in one of the Three Brothers (the most old building in the city) and the jugend district (outside of the old city but not far)must be seen too.

Only one black point, just take care not to be in an unpleasant situation - some of local population can be " special ".

Last advice, don't change your money to the airport and the most important don't go to the first exchange office in the airport - big spread with the others - whatever the best solution is to use cash machine. You can find them everywhere in the city...

I was in this in hotel 3 years ago, so i decided to book because they had also "family rooms".

We were 8, the two rooms on 4th floor were terrible. 401 (the famiily room) and 405 are in the old part of the building. 405 has a huge wood wheel inside where you hit your head every time you turn around, or exit the toilet (well it is not a toilet is the smallest toilet i've ever seen, you can't put both hands inside the sink, you have to wash one after the other).

401 has a declining floor, so when you go to sleep your head is lower then your feet

Our room on 3rd floor was ok.

Also breakfast was not impressive (and it was always a fight to have some warm milk from the buffet)

Nice friendly hotel. It is in a great location in the centre for the old town next to the Dome Cathedral. Can be a bit noisy especially Friday and Saturday night with the street noise, but not that excessive
The breakfast was OK. I had one dinner there which was very good. Resident pianist!
Room was nice at bit cluttered, managed to accidentally break one of the lamps which they were Ok about
Staff were friendly and spoke good English don’t expect the “have a nice day’ attitude the staff are refreshingly honest.
Good value for money I would stay there again.

We stayed in this hotel for 5 nights. It has pleasant period decor. Rooms are a good size with tidy and functional facilities. Unfortunately ours lacked air-conditioning, but a fan was provided. Breakfasts were very good with a variety of choice. The staff were always friendly and helpful. It is ideally situated for the old town and walkable from the bus and train stations. There are many good restaurants nearby. It was useful to have a supermarket round the corner.

Stayed here only 1 night out of 3 in Riga but wished I had stayed for the entire 3 days. The room was very spacious and clean. The breakfast was very good and the staff was very helpful. The price was very reasonable. Unlike the other hotel we stayed in, there was no noise to keep us awake which is strange since the square where it is located is larger and busier than the other hotel.
