I am a bit of a world traveler (39 countries so far) and I always stay in four star hotels if I can. This was not a four star hotel. It was a three star if you don't count the unrenovated rooms which they try to sell you, which are more like two star. Unfortunately I had pre-paid for four nights, otherwise I would have left after one. The rooms are odd shaped, dark, narrow and small. The decor of the renovated rooms is hideous. I paid extra to switch to a "junior suite" which was nothing of the sort. It was the size of a regular room in a proper four star hotel. The toilet sewage backed up into the bathtub. The plumber came twice, but for the rest of the stay my room smelled like toilet. They said they had only some small, unrenoved rooms to give me. The whole experience basically ruined my trip to Riga, which is a beautiful city. There are so many gorgeous four star hotels in Riga. And for the same price! Don't have your heart broken like I did. Also the breakfast was gross.
