4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

Had no expectations about this three star hotel, but it was a decent place after all. It may not be the most intact (maybe holes on curtains or bed linen), but tidy enough all in all, and served well enough as we never wanted to go live in a hotel, just to crash and wash up when needed. The location... More

I don't really know where to begin. First off, there is little to any consistency with this hotel other than the breakfast...which leaves much to be desired. My first impression after s long day flying: torn couch in the lobby, but okay looking front desk. My room (a single) was the smallest hotel room I have ever seen, and I... More

So, few years ago we were in this hotel just before christmas. All the city was decorated with figures and beautiful lights. But to the review. First of all we had booked a small room for two and what we got was not more than 10m2 room planned and equipped for just one person. We had to ask for another... More

Good location, nice receptionist, delicious breakfast. Purpose of our trip was to spent night in Riga before further trip, Rixwell Irina hotel was decent place for that. Train station is near by, Rimi was working 7-24, we ate in Cili (in train station).

Pictures on the hotel website seem to make it seem grand for a 3 star. Turns out the most impressive feature is the fish tank. I would rate this no better than a 2 Star for the single room I had. The room was tiny and terribly laid out. I couldn't lay my suitcase down anywhere in the room, just... More

Very close to the basilica and to the old center. Reception service took a little too long and breakfast is not English or international style, but truly Latvian. Room was clean and fair. The staff was friendly. The room I asked for though wasn't available and instead of a couple's room I got a two-single-bed's one.

The location is very good - easily reached by bus from the airport - some 30 minutes, and just opposite central railway station. Old Town is just 5 minutes away by foot. Very friendly and helpful multilingual reception. Perfect free WIFI. Very reasonable price for this level of service and location. Really nice breakfast - and (surprisingly!) nice herrings. Would...

The hotel is located near the old town as well as railway station. Not calm place outside, but no problem with noise inside. Good for calm stay when you are on a business trip or just need place to spend the night. Simple, clean hotel with good service.

So I had to exchange my great hotel in an ok location for this ok hotel in a great location. I think I'm happy with the change. Even though it's a very basic hotel which still offers free breakfast, I think its location more than makes up for it. Located right across from the train station and a shopping mall,... More

The hotel is situated almost opposite of 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. It’s easy to reach the hotel from the airport. Take bus no 22 (stop... More
