Stayed at the Avalon hotel with five friends. Prior to our arrival the hotel offered us advice on transfers from the airport, either the bus or they could have someone meet us of the plane. We chose the latter and it cost 14 Lats (one way) for a minibus that sat eight people. Our first impression of the hotel we excellent and they let us check-in early. The rooms are a good size and came with free Internet. The view from our room looked over the central market, which we found out later use to be zeplin hangers during the first world war. The hotel was only a five minute walk from the old town where there are plenty of nice bars and restaurants. We ate in two Latvian restaurants that are near the the House of Blackheads, both excellent. The old city is beautiful, but can be a little disorientating at times. There is a good view of the old town from the top of the Radison Blue hotel.
An excellent hotel and city.
