I knew it's not the most up-to-date RB in Riga, however I was convinced by reasonable rate ( <60 EUR for standard room ) and, as being frequent visitor to Riga, wanted to try something else. Particularly RB Daugava was not the best choice at this time.
Hotel located in central part of Riga, facing Daugava river between two bridges. It has spacious parking lot ( 8 EUR/night ).
Positive: nothing specific to mention ( I think nowdays free wi-fi is absolute compulsory stuff in Baltics everywhere, so doesn't deserve to be mentioned as plus ), breakfast of average choice and taste - others RB's offer better.
Negative: hotel itself is really outdated, you can smell everywhere that days of fame for this hotel has been somewhere around 1995's - so everything requires major renovation; rooms old, requires repair, bathroom layout is not convinient; tv channels consist mainly of news channels and local tv programs - nothing special; spa and fitness center, including pool, is also open for external visitors - so it was overcrowded; water in pool was very cold; large gap ( like 5cm ) between room doors and carpet - means no sound insulation and light from hall.
Would not stay here again.
