Reviewed July 8, 2014

First of all there is notthing closer to the BUs station than this hotel, and at the same time it is just by the historical city centre, so practically everything is in a walking distance.
We arrived at 7 am and the good thing that we were able to enjoy the rich buffet breakfast for only 10 Euros, comparing for minimum 25 Euros in Holliday Inn chain.
The staff was extremely freindly and helpfull. The rooms are pretty well and equiped as per 4 star hotel should be.
I would definitely come back here.

Kind personnel, second time I have been here, and I cannot complain about the service. Cannot find a reason not going here when I will be in Riga. Close to the centre, easy access to the old town. Good choice in breakfast.

I have ordered fondant for desert that suppose to be hot when it served but I got it cold and when I asked waiter, aswer was that kitchen made them today(few hours before!!!) but something went wrong that's way it is cold.

Stayed here for 3 nights on a city break to Riga. Paid very very little for the room, so didn't have our hopes set high.

When we arrived, the building was very impressive and new, everything was spotlessly clean. The receptionist was extremely helpful and fluent in at least 4 languages I could just about pick up. The hotel is very close to the centre of Riga too.

The room was small but spotless and had everything we needed for a city break. Breakfast was a fantastic array of local and international cuisines.

We dined in the hotel restaurant one night and it was fantastic. The waitress looked after us well and the food was fresh and vibrant. A good hotel for a romantic break away. I would recommend it to anyone!

This was my second stay at the Avalon. The location is great, right near the Old Town. I was there on business for a couple of days, but to be able to walk out the back of the hotel into the city was great.
The staff are very friendly and helpful, they happily printed my boarding pass for me when I check out.
The rooms are very spacious and clean. Everything you need is there, and it's very comfortable too.
The restaurant is also very nice, I had a meal there one evening and breakfast each morning. There was a wide selection of cold and hot food, and drinks.

Another great stay here, and I'll be returning here next time.

This 4-star hotel is located between railroad/bus station and old town, but...

Pros:
- just few steps from railroad/bus station
- just few steps from old city center
- nice breakfast
- low price

Cons:
- I've asked for smoking room/room with balcony - none of them available
- a lot of noise in the rooms facing to the railroad station
- no trash bin in the room
- heater in the bathroom was fixed with duct tape (yeah, I know that it will fix everything)
