“The view on old Riga is worth a dinner at Ziemelblazma restaurant at9th floor of Islande”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2012

Floor carpeting should be renovated but location tidiness service amenities and facilities are absolutely price worth. The Spa is offering free morning sauna.Restaurant at 9th floor offers gourmet dining (try latvian bacon carpaccio) and a perfect panorama of Riga...in case of biz trips, please note it is located 400mt from Riga expocentre

The hotel is perfect for conferences and leisure. Great SPA opportunities. The best view of Old Riga even in winter. Everthing clean, tasty and I felt really personal care. Thank you.

In general we enjoyed our stay there! Although it's located on the other side of the river, a bit away from the old city on foot, the hotel is a modern one. Nice restaurant on top floor with a wonderful view of the river and the old city. The food was average. During our stay two wedding receptions took place on the lobby and it was fun to watch!

Good located, 20 minutes away from the city center on foot. The rooms are silent and clean, also breakfast is satisfying. Staff are helpful and nice. Has nice city view from its roof.

Not sure why this hotel has not had some very good reviews and we found it to be very good.

Stayed 3 nights with our nearly 1 year old – room was rather hot the air con blows out hot air but other than that the room was very nice and spacious – plenty of room for the cot – we asked for a kettle to boil water for our baby and it was brought straight to the room.

Breakfast was nice – plenty of choice – although the hot food could have been hotter.

Within a 15 minute walk to the town.

The staff were excellent.

Would recommend.

We have booked this hotel together with AirBaltic flight per airbaltic web-site - the price was very good. The hotel is nice, clean and comfortable.
The airport is very close, it takes only 20 (or less) minutes per AirBalric shuttle bus (it stops just in front of the hotel).
Breakfast is great.
Internet is very expensive. I supposed free wi-fi is an obligation of a good hotel:(
The city center is also not far from the hotel - it is necessary to get across the river through the bridge. It's ok, but in winter it was a little bit cold and windy:)

Good hotel for its price.

We came here to visit Riga, but also to relax, and the hotel was a good choice for both. Just 10 minutes walk from Old Riga, and with a wonderful panorama view of the city from top floors (lower down there are big trees between the hotel and the river). I can absolutely recommend a visit on the terrace on the 10th floor, which also have a very nice summer restaurant.
The room had AC which was much needed in the July heat and the beds were fine. There was only one armchair in the rather small sit area, so we had to use the beds to sit in when in the room.
The spa recreation area was small but OK, and good to use in the afternoon between city exploring and dinner.
