“Interesting to look at but lacks comfort”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

The hotel is great for younger travelers looking for an uncommon stay. It is in prime Liepaja location. On the canal, next to the top city hotel and a short walking distance from everything. It’s a massive complex, and maybe tries to be too much all at once with a hotel, nightclub, junk food restaurant, a steak house, tattoo parlor, sex shop, and biker’s bar all in one. The interior is interesting, but that is about it. I thought the price was fair for the ok room, the ok breakfast, and the basic spa facilities which did seem in need of cleaning. The staff was very nice and tried to accommodate all our requests for extra blankets and pillows, towels, and late check-out.

We took one night in suite room. Interior is nice, like in old time, but celling looks not so expressionlessly. this is only one plus. everything else is only minuses. No air condition in room for full price 90$, only fun, but it's useless, because you could not open the window due to night party during all the night. only rain save us from the dreamless night. We try to go to SPA, but there already was 12 ppl. we decide do not try anymore, and with food also.
p.s.
breakfast was not included

Room Tip: if you decide to stay, choose room with windows on the city side, not on the port side

Two stars for this property purely for interior. The design is nice, very fancy and stylish in old renovated building. Our Junior Suite was spacious with nice furniture. Very clean. Now why two stars - It is absolutely horribly located in front of port, which is busy throughout the night so you can hear the noise in your room. On top, there is a club/bar near by, and loud live music is entertaining your sleep all night long. I thought that the fun will stop at around 3 am, but it was going till morning hours, even at 7.40! And that is every day of the week at least when we were there in August. No sleep at all. Our family left after two nights, although we booked for three. The breakfast is not included in the room price either, so you have to pay around 6 euro per person, which is rather expensive especially when you are not sure about food quality and choice. The SPA centre is not spectacular, small pool and sauna was warm/coldish.
I suggest you to stay away or at least ask for the rooms with the view to the city, not the port, it could be quieter.

Room Tip: Ask for the room with a view to the town, not port if you want to get some sleep.

Great funky affordable place with big bright rooms, and awesome music. The restaurant is good if you like steak! The patio out front is very nice in the evening...interesting marina location if i might say. It was a shame the prison bar is only open on weekends. But we had a great time in liepaja, interesting town with lots of old wooden houses. The bartender at the hotel set us up with free entry into the cub next door, and some rents, bikes and we were on our way all over, beach, park, market. Perfect!
I could do without the angry iguana in the hallway though...what is it with hotels and animals???

We are staying in this hotel whenever coming to Liepāja. Liking the kitchy plush look of this rebuilt old factory! The setting is superb in front of busy port and waterside promenade. The rooms could be a bit bigger, and hotel lacks an elevator, but apart from this everything else is just fine!

Will never go back, will never recommend it. In a few words: sound isolation is terrible. Right near our door in the hallway there are tables and chairs put by administration. During the night I was awakened three times by different noisy companies who were drinking alcohol there! What the hell are the tables doing there? There is a bar on the ground floor, there are plenty of bars outside; why do drunk people spend time in 3rd floor hallway at nights disturbing other people?! The lady at the reception did not care at all. She was drunk herself and all she could say in the morning is quiet "sorry". ... Barhroom in family suite is terrible: dirty bath, mould, dim light (obviously, so that you could not see how dirty is it).

If You want a quiet place to rest or to enjoy peace, do not choose this hotel. You will not even receive a hair dryer in the Junior Suite apartment (!!), sound isolation is very poor, will hear all your neighbors, including every word on the street. I am not even talking about music noise.
For young people - to fall down after the party - it's perfect place. For others - just choose something else.

Room Tip: Rooms on the street side are very loud, the interior is interesting, but do not spend your money on...
