We have stayed in this hotel only one night.
We stayed in a standard twinbed room for the price of EUR 42,00.
The breakfast was included in the price.
On our arrival we needed to park the car in the hotel garage. The additional cost for garage is 7 LVL what is about 10 EUR. In my opinion it is too much (1/4 of the price of staying).
The receptionist lady was very welcoming / charming and attentive, but maybe a little bit slow (but no complain about this).
Both inside and outside the hotel looks modern and nice as the building itself was built not long time abot (max 5-6 years).
We were given the room on the 4th floor: comfortable room with comfortable bed and all was clean. Of course some pieces of furniture were shabby, but still the looked good.
We have also a chance to visit the bar. The prices of the bar is very fair as well. One portion of whiskey cost 3 LVL / 4,27 EUR for 40 ml. And a small bottle of cola cost 1 LVL / 1.42 EUR. The barman was nice, but on the bill he added one extra cola. When I indicated on this mistake, the bill was changed. But I advise to be attentive. The additional minus the bar did not accept American Express card.
The location is good as well: you can reach the city centre in 10 min by car (if there is no traffic). It is very close to the airport as well.
I would definitely stay again and would recommend it.
