Very very good hotel for the price. Brilliant location, only 20 minutes by car to Jurmala and 35 minutes Kemeri parks. Professional and helpful staff, clean and crisp rooms with a mini fridge and safe. Breakfast spread was also very good, hot and cold options available. A very good experience.

We spent 2 nights in this hotel.I recommend choosing a superior room - as the room is very spacious. The room has floor-to-ceiling windows and it made the room very white. The bathroom did not was with the newest look, but totally okay. I also visited this hotel a few years ago and then I remember that the choice of breakfast was larger and sparkling wine was offered next to breakfast :) The hotel is located about 5 km from the Old Town of Riga, so those who do not like long walks must use public transport or car. All things considered, the value for money of this hotel is in place and I generally recommend this hotel.

Very weak sound isolation. Not allowing to breakfast without pass but allowing to the small gym everyone. Gym extra small. TV extra small, no HDMI. Internet dissapeared for one night and half of day. People not we wrong masks tolerated. Other then that it is Ok , but not enough if they want 4 stars. The reception people and house cleaners are Nice people. Thats the biggest positive.

Average aircon (in superhot weather), did not work at all in first room and bad breakfast experience - uncomfortable, limited choice, poor-ish quality and all cold! You should come up with someting more sustainable, like breakfast bags to rooms in the morning.

We live in the countryside of Latvia, but have occasional need to be in Riga for a few days. Elefants is always our choice. The rooms are always clean, comfortable, and at a good price. The staff is very helpful and able to make good suggestions. The breakfast was very convenient and of high quality. We ordered a snack tray and the only small disappointment was that it lacked local tasties.
