We've been there in Oct 2008 after travelling in Latvia for some time and seeing other hotels.
This is the best hotel (for the price) we've been to.
It's REALLY clean and pretty, the bathroom was a real 5-star (actually, i've been to 5 stars hotels with bathrooms that were inferior to Baltvilla's bathroom). The breakfast was just great with a nice variety of food.
The rooms have quality blankets, carpets, and furniture. I haven't seen a single cheap object.
The staff was very professional and friendly.
There is Wi-Fi (unfortunately only in the hall), but all the rooms have Ethernet plugs (the reception kindly offered me an ethernet cable even if it was 2am, but i already have mine), and there is a computer in the hall (free of charge) if you don't have your own.
Right outside of the hotel, there is a pitoresque home (see photo attached) and.... A LAKE with private playground and private little dock!
If you're staying in Riga, unless you NEED a hotel near Old town, consider Baltvilla. Riga is small, and it's just 10/15 min from old town.
