This place just opened, and a lot of taxi drivers still don't know about it, although it is in fact just on the edge of Riga's magnificent Old Town. The rooms are comfortable, clean and well furnished, and the bathrooms are large and up to date. The staff is friendly and mostly English speaking. The breakfast buffet is abundant, but you need to get downstairs promptly at, say, 8.30, because the Russian visitors (of whom there are many) gobble up all the brown bread!
The staff goes out of its way to be friendly; for example, I had not brought my laptop, so they loaned me one for my room. Definitely worth considering as a choice if you are coming to Riga.
