Reviewed February 17, 2013

Good location, good breakfast buffet, free of charge refreshments (tea, cofee) available 24h, cosy lounge. Bathrooms would need some renovation in some near future I guess, but overall impression is good. Will recommend to everybody going to Riga.

I fully agree with the previous written reviews on Tripadvisor. You will fall in love with the hotel when you arrives. The stay is a great value for money hotel, which offer excellent service for a fair price. Breakfast and Dinner buffet is free of charge, and at any time you can enjoy free refreshments in the lobby/bar. The staff is friendly and service oriented. Located near the historical old city (or within), the major tourist sites are in walking distance.

Room Tip: A taxi (use the red or green) from the airport costs only about 10 EUR

Third stay at this "value for Money" Hotel. They offer a free Dinner buffet which is perfect when you arrive late and just want something light to eat before bed. The buffet is served up to 21:00. This time I arrived at 10 pm and missed it by a hour. Just mentioned it when I checked in. Some 20 minutes later, the Staff turned up with Sandwiches, Fruit and Yogurt. Very good initiative which made the day.

When we stayed at this hotel everything was perfect! From the moment we checked in till the very end when we checked out. We arrived late and got two bags with some sandwich, fruit and yoghurt. Love this consept about Clarion Collection, free evening meal. The room was amazing! Breakfast and everything about the building. Staff was very helpful, and speaks good English. They can help you with all from local stores to tourist attractions. The location is great. Not far from anything. I will highly recommend this hotel for everyone. Family as well as business trips.

At the risk of sounding melodramatic I think I found a hotel that is perfect for me based on quality, customer service, atmosphere and price. From the moment I arrived I loved this place. On arrival I was surprised how posh the place looks, posh but stylish. I knew I was in for a treat at a bargain price. Check in was nice, there was relaxing music playing and everything felt homely and cozy like the people cared about what they were doing. The lady on reception asked my interests so she could help me plan some touristy things in Riga, I thought that was a very nice touch. I declined but it was nice to be asked none the less.the room was a single but of a good size. I liked the simple style of the room, the bathroom was large although in my room the towel rail wasn't working which made it cold in the morning. The hotel has a buffet meal and breakfast all included and snacks and coffee throughout the day. The quality of dinner and breakfast were excellent and I was well pleased with these little extras. In short this place is excellent, wonderful warm and friendly staff who care and go the extra mile. I would have no hesitation in recommending this place or staying again.

Room Tip: Although the public bus seems complicated for transport to the hotel it isn't and it's reall...

Stayed here with a small group on a work incentive weekend away. Great friendly hotel for a fantastic price. Very competitive rates with dinner buffet included, decent enough food for a buffet. Staff are very friendly and were more than happy for us to chill out in lazy clothes in the bar during the Saturday day after a heavy night out in a great club just round the corner (can't remember the name of it).

Rooms are more than spacious with extra blankets for when it gets cold - it was -9 whilst we were there. Bathroom is well sized with a good power shower. There is some good fitness facilities including a welcome hot tub after a day out in the cold!!

Drinks at the bar are reasonably priced and the barman was great - happily making us cocktails and various drinks to order which was fantastic.

Absolutely cannot fault the hotel, do not hesitate to stay here. Thank you for a great stay, we will certainly be back again.

I arrived from Sweden late a friday night. The restaurant was closed so the entrance felt a bit unwelcoming, the hotel is like a big fort (high security). When the receptionist arrived after 5 minutes she was very kind. They had also made a small bag with a sandwich, some fruit and a yoghurt. The lobby and restaurant is nice, good and fresh interior. The road sounds outside when you sleep, but not more than other hotels in AA postition. I felt that the room was nice, good beds, small but working tv, and tiles in the shower.

The small buffet in the night was also good. Everything was in fact good, the hotel is situated close to a park. It takes 10 minutes to go to the old city. But it works, was in fact quite good to stay here.

I like that the manager wrote a small note and that the cleening lady also had a small note, it makes the stay more personal.

Room Tip: I would have wanted a room to the inner garden just to have a more quiet room next time.

Good tip about requesting a room to our inner courtyard - it is recommended for guests that value absolute quiet during their sleep.
