Avoid this place. There's better places in Riga. We were visiting Riga on Saturday. Booked double room with quinn bed. Room was so small that the bed barely fit in. Girl at the reception was pleasant but the porter guy was terribly rude. We felt uncomfortable walking past reception. Breakfast very basic. Three types pancakes and hot dog sausages. Once... More

My husband and I stayed here from 10th-13th of September and we weren't disappointed. I'd read that it was dated and perhaps it is but it added to its charm. It's in a great location, very close to the train station and the market and right on the edge of the old town. Breakfast was fine but the coffee is... More

We have a junior suite with jacuzzi. Nice bubbles. Bed is comfortable, room is clean and towels are changed daily. Food in... More

I got the double room with queen bed. The price was great. After the long flight, I dreamed jump to bed and get up just before checking out at the hotel. Unfortunately, before the shower, I opened sheet and saw that sheets were wrinkled. Okay, let's check what is wrong. It was a late evening. I was really tired but... More

Nice and clean, small hotel at the outskirts of medieval city. Short walk and good connections to everywhere. Our room was spacious and it had modern bathroom. The reason I didn't give 5/5 is breakfast. It was little bit disappointment.

After reading the reviews expected a lot more from this hotel. It does have a great location that's right in the center but also far away enough from the loud bars and clubs. However the decor is both confusing and out of date (not sure what theme they were going for). There are big white drapes hanging down from the... More

On our check-in the hotel gave us a room that had already been occupied by another couple. When we came back to the reception, the manager-on-duty took over and demanded to see our passports (which we already showed earlier upon checking-in) in a very hostile and unfriendly manner, which we did not understand since it was not our fault in...

The location is excellent: old city centre, close to railway public transport and central market. Rooms are small and outdated, internet connection is weak. But room service is correct. Breakfast (included) is acceptable. Price is reasonable for quality offered.

Our room was on the third floor. It was small and at one stage had been opulent hung with dark burgundy tapestries. No window to outside was a disappointment but the hotel was certainly unusual with heaps of atmosphere. Breakfast was served in a cave-like cellar and was overcrowded but the food was good.
