Excellent service attitude within the employees shows to me that this hotel has a strong and competent management. I travel often and always in 5 star hotels. This was an exceptional experience and I felt that more or less everything was prepared for you and everything was possible in this hotel.

Only drawbacks: 1. Very little space in the cupboard to hang things ( plenty of drawers though) 2. Same in the very nice bathroom. No space to put things.... More

The location is extremely walkable to many of the sites and cafes in old town Riga. Others had complained about lack of water and not... More

We chose this for it's location, we will return for the great service and food had a great room with good bed, great bathroom. Rooms are not huge but good for Europe. Food was brilliant. Hotel looks very clean and new could find no fault with the hotel anywhere. Love the glass ceiling over the dining room.

This is a tough review because there are so many pros and cons about this hotel that I've experienced. First of all, the cons: the rooms was exceptionally small (always a problem for me), with no place to put a second luggage rack and suitcase; the old fashioned key most of the time did not work in the lock and...

We stopped 3 times to take refreshments on the terrace outside in the street. The service was superb. The waiter (I think his name is Jurgis) was professional, friendly, helpful and humourous. Even if you aren't staying in the hotel, do stop and take some refreshments on the comfortable terrace in a quiet street. Thank you Jurgis !

Feels almost like a private mansion. Lovely, great service, seems to be the place where Baryshinikov stays (he visits, was born in Latvia). Very old world, free internet and helpful staff. Nice location in the old city.
