My girlfriend and I went on an exploration of Riga and left the hubbies at home. This is exactly what we wanted in a hotel. Super location in Old Town, budget hotel, clean rooms, comfy beds and nice service. The hotel exceeded expectations in that we didn't know that breakfast was included. Bring your earplugs, just in case there is...

Poor breakfast, same every day. Rubber-like, cold pancakes. Tiny old fashioned rooms, no parking. Hot water takes few minutes to become hot. Closest parking is twenty euro per day. Good location. Room shoes provided :)

Breakfast was extra, costed about 10 USD. The food spread was adequate. I would like it better if there were less noises and more ventilation. No A/C and...

We enjoyed our stay here. Charming room, the only down side being the climb up the stairs. Breakfast was good and the staff very pleasant. When we arrived at 2am due to a delayed flight from Luton there was a friendly person on reception! All in all - great.

This hotel is in an perfect site for exploring the Old Town. As with many hotels in this area, it has no elevator or porter. Although it's only 3 stories, with a "dicky" knee, it's a bit of a struggle with your luggage. Our room was on the third story! Our room was large and clean. Unfortunately our mini refridgerator...

We stayed for a long weekend and found the receptionists very welcoming and pleasant. The hotel is down a cobbled pedestrian alleyway (not unlike the rest of the old town) and I was worried it may be unsafe at night. On the contrary, we (2 women) felt completely safe and it was very well lit. The main attractions are no...

We were 4 family members on a girls trip to Riga. This hotel has the perfect location, near lots of shops and restaurants. Its a quiet hotel not a party hotel 😊 and perfect for us since as youngest was 14 to grandmother of 59 years. Nice friendly staff and ok breakfast.

Simple and small but situated just in the centre, in Old city. Convenient for everything: there are lots of shops, museums, clubs & bars in the neighbourhood just in 2-5min walk. The hotel is situated in a narrow street just outside the main streets so it is really quite at night. Rooms are quite small and simply decorated but have...
