“Good location, but worn-out and grey”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2012

This hotel is a good budget choice. We stayed three nights at a surprisingly low € 26 rate. The public transport system in Riga is good with several frequently operated bus lines just a round the corner.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2012

We stayed there for 2 nights in June, 2011. Received an upgrade which was great, staff was really friendly and helpful. Room was excellent, lots of space, breakfast was very good. Would def recommend and stay again. Not the best view, but with everything else being great you can live with that.

I was there on business in the fall of 2011. I chose this hotell simply for its location close to the conference and did not have any expectations. It turned out to be quite nice and had a good breakfast. I probably would not choose it if I was a tourist wanting to explore the downtown area because it is a bit of a walk there.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2012

It is pretty central, but the rooms are small and old with a carpet, and there s a peculiar smell. If someone is staying next door, you will hear everything that is being said, and have a lousy night s sleep. However, there is a double door between the room and corridor, so you don't hear sounds from the corridor.

The restaurant is very poor for food, and to be avoided. The hotel has no ambience whatsoever, is not a good place to make any kind of encounters with travellers or locals, and the small lobby poses as an area for an insurance company located in t he same building.

There is just a few seats and no where to socialize in the lobby. The sour Russian ladies for the most looked like Soviet times at the reception, and the only exception was an exceptionally outgoing and talkative Latvian speaking male receptionist. The place has good security too and the guard is on duty 24 hours at main entrance.

All in all, your stay in Riga is not going to be memorable, if you stay here. think the best bet for a good and agreeable stay in Riga is probably the Radisson, and there are four of them now, unfortunately they start at about a 100 EUR per night, which is too much, if you are staying in Riga for more than just a few days.

A 20-min walk to city center thru shady streets is not nice if you have small children. The hotel was ok. Nothing special but nice and clean. Not so modern. Helpful staff. Nice breakfast.

For a budget hotel, this was great value for money. Considering the price we paid, we got a very good deal. We had two bedroom suite, which we weren't expecting and it was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was very nice, enough choice to keep most people happy and the staff were friendly, helpful and very polite.

Hotel was a little bit of a walk from the city centre but not a problem. Have to give this hotel full marks

At this hotel you get value for your money. The staff is very helpful and polite and the breakfast buffe is good. The rooms are not more then standard but clean and comfortable. Overall this is a great hotel with walking distance to Old city and good restaurants.
