I give it a 5-star rating because the hotel was as good as we expected and we had absolutely no problems with anything. You can't beat the location, it's right in the center of Riga's old town. We found the oddities that other reviewers mentioned in our room as well - sloped floor (the cabinet in the corner made it very noticeable), huge wooden beams crossing our room etc. Actually we found that part rather enjoyable. The breakfast was very good and in retrospect I have to say it was amongst the best that we found during our trip through the Baltic countries and southern Scandinavia. The staff was very friendly, professional and spoke excellent English.
Although we weren't affected I want to mention that it is true that the stairs are a problem for wheelchairs. There are stairs from the street to the lobby and the elevator stops a half floor higher than where the rooms are, so you have to get a few steps down to reach you room. It's just the way the old building is. The hotel should advertise this clearly.
