The hotel is really nice. I was staying here for the weekend with some pets, so I can say that the rooms are very comfy and quite big. Also the food is delicious. The price for pets was quite low. The view from the window and the surrounding of the hotel is very beautiful.

I just needed a place to sleep during a long drive and had a problem finding a hotel. Saw what looked like a decent place - the Hotel Jelgava. I really had a problem getting to it because of the road works and lack of signs to help you.
When I finally found the lobby, I got the feeling of a hotel that been glorious in its day in the 1940's and now was trying to return to it, but with limited resources. The receptionist was helpful and I couldn't believe I could get a single room for 20 Lats! The room was clean but the bathroom really needed a total renovation. Since there didn't seem to be any restaurants nearby I thought I would check the 'mini-bar', This was a small refrigerator under a desk. It was totally empty and very old and worn.
In the morning I just wanted a cup of coffee, but that became a long process in the cafe. I did glance at the breakfast counter and was glad I had not opted for that in my room booking as it was very paltry compared to what I had seen in hotels in Spain,Lithuania & other Latvian cities.
This could be a wonderful hotel with work and a lot of money invested. I hope someone does.

We choose this city, Jelgawa, 50 km away of Riga, an it was worth. The Hotel is well located near the river, in front a church (the tower in front my room window). Gunta in reception, very nice ! - kind person. Room with every necessary: complimentary drinks, frigidaire, TV, wifi...Correct price. Perhaps my mistake was no include the breakfast (no other coffee shop near hotel), but close the hotel, rest. Herzog, we have a good dinner and the best tarte tatin in years. New attractive peatonal bridge aside the hotel. Full of place for free parking aside the building.

Room Tip: I only know my room. Looking the church. It was nice

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights due to a conference I was attending at the Latvia Univ of Agriculture. The Univ main building and other faculties I needed to visit were all within walking distance. The bedroom and bathroom were well-equipped, including tea and coffee making facilities. The bed had an interesting net canopy which I was not sure whether it had a functional or aesthetic purpose; but still it added charm. The room size was fine for me and my husband. Breakfast was adequate, with a good selection of hot and cold items. The front desk staff were very courteous. The lobby music was fairly loud in the first evening and we could hear it in our room. When I called the desk, the volume was turned down immediately. Also, when after the first night i complained that the bed covering smelt of cigarettes (I had asked for a non-smoking room), they immediately removed it and next day we had a fresh- smelling one. The hotel was suitable for exploring the main sights in Jelgava and there was a selection of restaurants to suit different budgets and tastes in the vicinity.

Rooms vary in size from very small to quite large (and not based on price!) Corner rooms are very nice and have the added bonus of a large comfy sofa. Others are adequate. Twin rooms have small singles (2'6") and only one beside table which inconveniently, is not between the beds!
Having sad that, the rooms are pleasantly furnished, light and airy and very clean.
No fridge which would be a bonus and they have not yet cottoned on to the pleasantries of tea/coffee facilities in the room.
Bathroom is small but nice shower, plenty of hot water and an adjustable shower head. Towels are modestly sized!
It is very noisy if you are at the front of the hotel as you are right on a very busy street and the traffic runs all night. There is no aircon so having the window open is a necessity in summer. The curtains are also very thin so in summer the combination of an open window (to ease the heat) and thin curtains made for an interrupted sleep due to light and noise. Take eye shades.
The bar area is very nice as is the terrace and breakfast room.
The breakfast lest something to be desired. There is a choice of hot food. Scrambled eggs, the quality of which varied hugely over the three mornings I was there, sausages and vegetables. Also some tinned fruit, yogurt, meat and cheese. Bread is provided for toasting, but it is a domestic toaster which is somewhat temperamental and required some specialist handling. Toast is possible if you have patience.
Waitress rather fed up and slow to clear tables and replenish buffet.
For the money, a comfortable stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the hotel if you like windows open or a cool room
