“base for exploring town and around”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

A good base for exploring town and hinterland. Secure car park. Resteraunt was closed when we arrived late evening as was most of town on Sunday, However, after wandering around the town we asked at the Promanade Hotel , whose resteraunt was also closed , where we could eat and were directed by the very friendly manager to Baron Bumbiers not far from the Liva. What a find. We ate there the following night as well. Brilliant. So the hotel liva met our basic needs with clean clean safe accomaodation and we had brilliant food across the square at Baron Bumbiers .Try the soup in a loaf of bread yes... in a loaf of bread. Must be some latvian traditional dish.

Chose the middle option, price was quite low and it was mine concearn of the service, but everything turned out really good. Staf pleasant and the standard class room stayed in was great. I hoped that in Liepaja would be more snow, but thats what you can not effect. .

Room Tip: Standard class double room to streat side/ center

We stayed in an economy king room, which was very affordable and quite comfortable too. The room was large, with a lounge suite, small TV, small fridge (which wasn't working), and a decent bathroom. The hotel is right in the centre of town and only 15mins walk to the beach. The staff were friendly enough. The restaurant was a bit disappointing, not very expensive but the food didn't taste very fresh. In fact we didn't find one decent restaurant in Liepaja, where you would expect to find fresh seafood galore. As a summer destination, Liepaja would be quite nice.

Yes, they are very cheap, but that was one cut I should not have done!
Staying in Economy Single room at Hotel Liva was a very unpleasant experience.
Biggest problem for me was the smell: Murky, damp and ashtray-like. Nothing could be done about this because the windows could only be opened to a small gap. There is no fan. It was not possible to upgrade due to the fact that the hotel is fully booked all summer.

You might not want keep the windows open though: Half the room face the very noisy central square where, buses, and party people pass all night. You also hear music with a strong bass, not sure where it's coming from. The rooms facing the backyard are more quiet, there instead you are disturbed by car alarms going off several times during the night, and staff talking loudly while on smoke break.

Narrow bed which leaned so that you felt you were about to fall out. Propped it up with books to counteract.

Plenty of mould in the shower cubicle. No effective ventilation in the bathroom.

Painted wood-chip wallpaper in an unattractive shade of green.

The hotel has a nice restaurant which I recommend.

While the hotel staff was not rude or difficult, I got the impression that they were not experienced, and not particularly service focussed.

Despite the fact that half the guests are Russian speaking, there is very little printed information to customers available in Russian. One would expect printed material etc to be available in the language used by the majority of the guests.
