Definitely a boutique luxury hotel. Architecture is exquisite and the rooms are well appointed and designed. Best of all, they are simply huge. The one I was in was 45 sq meters. Had a couch, work desk, eating table, kitchenette. The works. The bed was very comfy and they have wonderful pillows. All sorts of sizes and types to please everyone. I smiled the whole time I was here.
Cold buffett breakfast is included, but it was limited in choice. Plus, if you want eggs you have to pay about $7 extra (3.5 LTV). Seems to me if you’re already paying hundreds of dollars for a room – they can throw in some eggs.
It is located just outside the old town about a 10 minute walk away. It's inside an area called Bergs Bazar which has some wine bars, cafes and other artisan shops. Absolutely a cute place to stay.
I loved my stay here and also stayed in old town in another supposed "luxury hotel". Bergs was by far the better choice, and if I ever come back to Riga - this would be where I would stay.
Now, although I 100% recommend this place, since they consider themselves to be a luxury hotel, I will say they are missing some small things:
1- No luggage stand.
2- Safe does not fit a laptop.
3- Add a makeup/shaving mirror in the bathroom. A scale would be a nice touch too.
4- And please provide a tissue box.
5- And finally, although it must be a cultural thing, almost all of the male front desk clerks never cracked a smile during my 4 days there. They were as nice and helpful as could be, but simply never smiled. Very weird. The women did - but there are more men working here. Not sure how you change this, but it would be nice to see a friendly face once in a while. The friendliest and happiest man was the doorman who always welcomed me home with a smile.
