Great personnel, Very professional and cheerful. Clean room, good sized. The breakfast has many many options, including chapmagne! The location is close to the center, public transport is very close. Close to airport too, just 10 mins.

Be careful with children in family room, they could easily access porno movies on local hotel cable TV!!! We was with 9 years old boy, he just entered room number on TV and watched porno till we came back from the breakfasts.
Stuff with the smile looked at me, when I explained situation and heroic announced that I should have to pay 10 Lats. Finally they didn’t charge, but I’m sure they do not understood subsequences which get our kid.

Wifi all the time was inaction.

Dear Euka,

Thank you for your review, and we are sorry to hear you had such accident. In our hotel, access to the adult channel is restricted, and the code to activate it can be obtained only in the reception. To avoid unauthorized access, we do not leave the code printed in rooms or anywhere else. We assure you, granting access of adult channel to a child is way out of our policy, and it must have been an error in the TV device or system that let this happen. We will look through it to make sure such situations are avoided in the future.

We sincerely hope to see you again in one in our hotels.

Kindest regards,
Dace Lea Briede

ideal location, a bit out of town (15 mins on bus), 10 minutes to airport and walkable to Spice shopping centre. Had a deluxe room that was spacious, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was a good range of food and included a glass of bubbly if you wanted it. Not too expensive to stay -didn't eat evening meal at hotel as used Spice shopping centre for meal or supermarket there for buffet back in hotel room.

Very good hotel, located just 4 km from the airport, very good rooms and an exelent service.
I can recommend this hotel.

I have stayed there several times now, and I have the same positive experience every time, for me it's an oasis in the middle of a very busy city.

And I have no doubt that I will also use the hotel in the future.

If you are looking for a good looking, modern styled and not expensive hote close to the airport and city center-you are in the right place.
The hotel staff are more than welcome either on reception or in the bar or in the restaurant.

Standard room stayed two night: New hotel so everything was immaculate and fresh. Staff were very helpful, meals great, decor exceptional. Spice shopping centre an easy walk away. Probably best for business and airport travel, we came to see the town and arrived and left by bus so found it a little inconvenient.
