We stayed at this hotel for a single night with a 3 year old, but could have stayed here more if we were in Riga longer. The airport shuttle knew the hotel and dropped us just a few yards away.
First the pros - the location is fantastic, in the old town itself, so you don't waste much time getting to the old town. The Central markets and the bus stands are right across the street. The room was well furnished, nice big bed, good linen, one cupboard, kettle for tea coffee and a mini bar. They don't provide milk for the tea though- I thought it was an oversight, but when I called them they said they would charge extra for it. The bathroom is nice and clean - bathtub with a good shower, a good hairdryer etc.
Cons- the breakfast was strange a mish mash of various things. The pancakes were not very good. The ladies at the reception were not very polite - they kept looking at each other and smirking, while we were talking to them
Would recommend the hotel for a short stay. Nothing bad about this hotel really, but nothing spectacular about it either!
There is a good bike rental shop near the hotel, if you need a bike, great way to explore the old town!
