The room was large and clean -- not fancy. There were some minor issues -- wifi only in lobby, water accumulated on floor from shower -- but we were there 7 days and were pleased with our hotel choice. Breakfast menu (with the room) included eggs (your choice), toast, yogurt, cheese, meat (ham some days, tongue others) -- enough to make a real lunch unnecessary -- so I had a beer instead of lunch.
We were particularly pleased with the cable "Mezzo" channel which carries classical music performances almost exclusively -- why can't we get this in the US?
On the weekend we were a bit affected by noise from some late-night parties but were warned ahead of time by the staff about the possibility.
Overall, given the chance, we'd go back to Riga and stay in the same hotel -- it was a really nice trip and vacation.
