Stayed here on the first weekend of October as i had an educational exhibition downstairs in the conference room, and wasn't disappointed!
Greeted by a friendly receptionist when i arrived and was able to check in promptly. Was directed up to my room via the panoramic elevators, giving a view over the whole of Riga. My room was situated near to the lifts (without asking) which is always appreciated!
Room was absolutely great, large bed and plenty of storage places to keep belongings. Loads of information in the room to help me during my stay in Riga.
I dumped my stuff then headed straight down to the Spa for a workout and a swim. I paid 16LAT which works out as about £20.00, it was quite expensive but you may want to check how much it is to upgrade your room at reception, as this includes entry to the Spa. Even though quite expensive, it was well worth it as i made the most of it.
The fitness room is well equipped with modern equipment, both cardiovascular and weights, and was really quiet the few days i used it. Free bottled water and towels made things a bit easier too!
After using the fitness room you can go upstairs to use the changing rooms where you are handed a towel and slippers, and you can go down to the swimming pool and spa area. The pool is small but fine for doing a few lengths, then there is a jacuzzi, sauna, steam room, and some awesome showers there too. Couldn't have felt more invigorated after finishing!
In the evening i headed up to the Skybar on the top floor of the hotel, with the most amazing views over Riga. There is a 2 LAT entry fee, but worth it really as it tends to keep the stag parties out. Drinks reasonably priced for what is essentially quite a posh bar, and the views are breathtaking.
Breakfast included the following morning was absolute dynamite, as much as you wanted and so much choice with full english breakfasts, healthy options with fruit and smoothies, bread and various pastries, i couldn't fault any of it!
The following evening i headed down to the sports bar in the basement to watch some football and grab some food and a beer, and again wasn't disappointed. Pretty good pub style food and good beer in a nice atmosphere!
All in all, i can't recommend this hotel enough, obviously business paid for a lot of my stay, but even then i don't think things were too badly priced.
