Gamster and I stayed here for 3 nights in April as a long birthday treat weekend.
Its a lovely hotel in a great location, very central for all attractions yet not on a busy street full of bars etc.
Nice reception area with a water feature, helpful staff on hand to book taxis - recommend places and even offer an umbrella when needed.
The rooms are very spacious and the unusual shape of the building creates vast open hallways which feel more like you're going into your own apartment rather than a hotel.
Comfy beds with a choice of pillows, tea/coffee facilities and a nice big bathroom. Oddly the bathroom had 2 showers - its nice to have a choice I guess or perhaps if you wanted an early morning "shower race" this would be ideal. Instead of taking it in turns and timing each other it can be a flat out drag race full of tension!
No outside noise which is nice and we had a nice view across the park area.
Breakfast is served downstairs in the restaurant and there was a fine selection of hot and cold foods to be enjoyed in a peaceful glass pyramid. We didnt eat any other meals in there but it is quite nice we heard.
There is also a bar area and cigar lounge - all very pleasant.
Overall I would recommend the hotel and stay again if visiting Riga for sure. The hotel even when full has a very calm and not busy feel to it - very nice
