We had a lovely four night stay at Hotel Valdemars and would strongly recommend it to anyone thinking of visiting Riga.
Both the Hotel and the City surpassed our expectations in every way.
Due to an early flight we arrived over an hour before check in time, hoping to leave our bags, but we were made to feel welcome straight away and checked in with a pleasant smile.
The room (401) was a reasonable size and pleasantly decorated with nice view of the well refurbished interior of the hotel.
The bathroom was modern and spacious with a great powerful shower, although as it was adapted for disabled access such a powerful shower also made it prone to flooding the bathroom. This really needs taking a look at. ( Only real complaint )
Breakfast for me was the best part of an excellent stay. Only problem was finding enough room for everything that I liked. Bacon, Scrambled Egg, Boiled Eggs, Sausages, Beans, Porridge, toast and jams, selection of cereals with fruits, nuts and seeds to put on top, selection of breads, cold meats, cheeses, fish, salads, pastries, yoghurts, fruits and compote, oranges and grapefruits with a juicer as well as coffee and selection of teas. If the porridge had been a bit thinner (could be sliced) more bowls available and a bit of help for the overworked ( smiling ) waitress it could have been almost perfect.
Friendly staff who do not bother you when you don't want them to, but always have a smile ready. A special mention for Kristina. ( the hardest working with the biggest smile )
They really should advertise the hotel as half board, as getting free fruit, coffee, teas, waffles (in the afternoon) and a perfectly good evening meal go above and beyond expectations.
All in all a great stay and recommend Riga, Hotel Valdemars, and the Clarion Collection to anyone willing to listen.
