I spent 4 nights in this Hotel recently and was initially worried about the surroundings- not a particularly salubrious area of Riga with derelict buildings next door and up the road but I need not have worried.
This Hotel is extremely well positioned with the river front seconds away and the central part of Old Riga less than 5 mins walk- just ignore the old ruins!! My room (number 101) was small but then I only booked a single room but very smart. Bathroom too was smart but a bigger person than me would have had a problem fitting through the shower opening. My room was very well air conditioned. I believe I was lucky here because I heard other people complain that the air conditioning in their rooms did not work and indeed the public rooms lacked air conditioning.
Staff that I came in contact with were friendly and spoke reasonable English. Breakfast was extremely good with plenty of choice. There was a small under used bar which I eat and drank in once- a good meal on my first night before I discovered other bars/restaurants in the town.
All in all, a good value Hotel. I enjoyed my stay very much and would stay again if I ever go back to Latvia.
