This is a great hotel for exploring Riga, it is a very short walk to all the sight’s, St John’s Church, St Peters and the main squares. I arrived in Riga by coach, with the coach station by the central market and it only takes a very short walk to get to the Hotel. Another advantage about the location of the hotel is that it is near an indoor shopping centre which has places to eat, a bank for exchanging money and a very large and cheap supermarket.
Everything about the hotel was good although the room I had seemed a little tired with stains on the floor and in need of a little spruce up. The room also faced an inner courtyard, although there wasn’t any noise from the courtyard, the window could be left open, there was no natural light and this made the room dark during the day. But that should not put you off this hotel, as it is a great base for Riga.
The breakfast was very good and had a choice from cereals, fruit and hot food, there is free internet connection on a Desktop in the lobby.
