Been here in nov 2015. Chose this because of location - next day early start at bus station. Staff was really friendly (hi to Jekaterina ;-)). Breakfast was ordinary, but tasty. Rooms are tiny, but you will find everything you need. Next time we will stay also here.

An earlier reviewer Meryem66 has really said it all. As with all my hotel choices it is all about location and price. Stayed here whilst studying Russian at the Durbe language school around the corner for a week, and appreciated being so close (5minute walk) that I could return to my room whenever I liked (unlike a homestay student who...

Having checked the hotel out before booking it, I was still a little skeptical about tiny negative things that the others have mentioned. However, in the end I didn't mind them at all. It's in the very heart of Riga, very close to train station and the central bus station, with good links to the buses that run around the... More

Hotel Irina is situated almost opposite to the Riga main railway. Still it wasn’t noisy. Next to the station there’s a shopping mall with a big super market open between 7 am and 12 pm. It was handy, as there was a fridge in the room. Also, if you want to continue your trip by coach, the international bus station... More

Booking was cheap, but the hotel was normal and the breakfast was fine. Room was out of dated, but I liked the bed and bathroom was clean and ok. My rooms window was to the back side, so there was no trafic noise at all and it was easy to sleep.

A traditional hotel in a good place for exploring Riga's attractions on foot. Reasonably close to the 'bus station where we arrived and departed. Our room was fine, clean and quiet. Breakfast was a buffet, and ample. The staff could have been more helpful; an ice-pack for the ankle I twisted on the cobbles was not possible because "The restaurant... More

Very simple three stars hotel, clean with helpful service, located near the train station but also near the centre, the central bus station and tha main general market. Few malls with a lot of shops and supermarket of good quality. Simple but nice with a full standard nord european breakfast with some hot food.When in Riga... meet Irina.

Its advertised as a 3 star hotel which is perhaps arguable but I'd say its about right. It's really a no frills hotel that is walking distance from the central station 5 minutes and also to the city centre 10 minutes (they're in opposite directions by the way). Hotel is clean, rooms comfortable and breakfast is ok, although not always... More

This is a 3 star hotel, no frills and good value. The room I had was very clean, smart and although a little dated, it was very well situated being a 5-10 minute walk from the old town. Staff were efficient and a free breakfast was provided which I didn't have as I chose to go out for breakfast.
