We got a red taxi from the airport they were very well organised but I believe it was cheaper getting an ordinary cab back(12Lats)a bit more than £12. It would be wise to take water if you are arriving late: bar was shut after 11pm and reception staff unable to sell anything. No lift but wide staircase. Room was fine though,shower OK, toilet flush had to be repeatedly unscrewed or didn't flush. Breakfast was fine, lovely bread and usual egg and stuff, cheese,meat,fruit and cereals. Lots of snooker tables in hotel.
Got a map of Riga from reception and the tram outside the hotel:30santimes(I think) about 30p remember and punch your ticket as the controllers often pop on to check your tickets.
Easy to find your way around Riga, lots of smart cars,designer gear, and high heels but also some old ladies selling flowers in jars and odd elderly and young person begging. Lots of beautiful buildings, monuments,galleries,museums most take a donation. Interesting to see the History of Latvia realise how lucky we are living in the West after WW11 but things looking good for Riga. Lots of good grub, try the black balsam,yoghurt lovely and peppermint tea. Worth a trip to Jourmalla on the train loads of wooden houses.
