We chose this hotel based on other reviews and for it's location and we weren't disappointed.
Situated just on the edge of the old town, everything is within easy walking distance, or staggering distance if you have been to sample the local hostelries.
The hotel itself is everything you would expect from a 4* hotel in a European city.
The rooms (we had a junior suite with a shared balcony) are comfortable and clean, the staff very efficient and friendly, breakfast great, although can get a bit busy when the hotel is full. (but you are warned about this)
Wi Fi is available, and although not free, the charges are very reasonable (about £4 for a week)
The restaurant, bar and tea room all offer good value.
I we have any critisms of this hotel, it would be that the beds are quite soft and the pillows are tiny, but for a short stay, they were ok.
Overall, an ideal base for exploring all of what Riga has to offer.
