After a traumatic landing in a snow blizzard at Riga airport it was nice to be met a very smart man in a Mercedes to drive us to the Hotel Centra. We had pre booked the hotels taxi service which was excellent. We arrived at the beautifully warm and comfortable hotel and checked in for 4 days. The room was huge with lovely views over the rooftops and of the Church of St Peters spire. The hotel was very good,clean and comfortable. centrally located and not at all noisy given its central location. Breakfast was buffet style with loads of choice. Staff were very friendly and helpful and spoke very good English. Riga is a lovely place to stay..even though it was minus 10 and snow everywhere !!! Loads of history and plenty of churches and museums to see. Loads of walking to be done. The river was frozen over when we stayed in the first week in March, which is pretty normal we were told. Wrap up well and enjoy. We had a great time.
