Very easy to get to to the sights from the hotel.
The rooms are small, but clean and nicely decorated.
The hotel did not have an iron and ironing board, nor did they have an ironing service. I found this unacceptable given I was attending a conference at the hotel and a ball elsewhere over the weekend and my shirts and dress needed ironing after travelling.
This may have been as the hotel had recently opened.
The bar is nice, but beware of the prices of the bottles of wine. We had a shock when the room bill came as we had been charged £45 for a bottle of wine which is high given the prices in Riga generally and exchange rate.
Conference facilities were good. They were able to facilitate a both for translator for speakers with headphones for delegates to hear translations.
I would consider this hotel again if I went back to Riga.
