Styled like a ship, the hotel would find a better fit with a name like, say, “Captain Morgan”. As we just came from another sea-themed 4* hotel Kolumbs in Liepaja, we couldn’t help comparing the two. Let’s be fair, Monte Kristo does not fully justify the number of its stars. Superior double was odd-shaped and definitely too cramped for the standard, lacking resting zone. There were some suspicious folks hanging in the lobby. The biggest issue for us was lack of air in the room. But other than that there were plenty of small details all around that made Monte Kristo feel homey: wooden steps to reach the window as it was set higher than usual, smell of home-made apple pie in the public areas, kettle and even a musical center in the room, etc. Breakfast was a good treat with unexpectedly wide range of food, including three kinds of pancakes, two different salads and the best ever omelette. Rise hands those of you who had banana pancakes or zucchini-omelette for the breakfast in any hotel, ever? Location is just unbeatable! Would definitely stay again in a bigger room.
