We only stayed here for one night but were made to feel very special. We were upgraded due to it being a special trip and the staff always went out of their way to assist us. The bed was super comfy and the underfloor heating in the bathroom was much appreciated! Breakfast was nice but not exceptional however the surroundings...

This is a very nice hotel, in a great location, right in old town and also very close to the ferry port. Our room was really nice and clean, and the bath was okay too. The breakfast was quite nice and with lots of options, and served in a really nice bright room with a glass ceiling. However there were...

Great hotel, hands down! Got upgraded to deluxe room and it was big and very modern and clean. Breakfast was certainly one of the best I've had. Go for the made to order pancakes! So good to be able to book sauna for free and have it all to ourselves. Do it!

We stayed here for a weekend in February and had an amazing time in this hotel. From start to finish, the hotel impressed on all levels. Lovely, helpful staff, a great breakfast, and the room was gorgeous. We spent the first night in the bar where the service was perfect, then used the hotel as a base to explore Riga....

What can I say?! Stayed here seventh time and it still has the wow factor as it did when I first stayed there! I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. Romance, luxury, fantastic service - especially Front Office. The room was beautiful, the staff outstanding. What a property, felt like a castle. It was absolutely gorgeous to see the flowers...

Top drawer all around. As close to perfect as you can get! The staff bent over backwards to satisfy my needs without being over-bearing. My needs were anticipated may times without me asking. You can tell when staff like their jobs and like their environment. This is a bunch of happy people.

Morning light through 2 large windows and view to the old town street and roof tops in the snow made our stay little bit special. We are not very demanding, but staff was really nice, hotel has perfect location and has everything we needed during our short stay.
