“Nice place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

The best thing about hotel is its central location and friendly, helpful stuff.The beach and main street is just 5 min walk, but, at the same time, the place preserves calmness of Jurmala. It is a small, cosy hotel which will perfectly fit for people who want to enjoy Jurmala for comparatively small money. Breakfast was also good. The only disappointment was about bathroom which had a bad smell and double bed which was not double in reality, but two beds put together.

Can't even describe how bad the service was. The receptionist was rude, the room had a bad smell, the sheets were dirty, someone had already slept in them. We checked in, ate dinner which wasn't good either, and checked out after an hour.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2012

Baltā Pūce has an excellent location: in the center of Jūrmala, 1 block from Jomas iela (the main restaurant street in Jūrmala) and 2 blocks from the beach. The building is a traditional Jūrmala wooden house with a good renovation inside.

The area is very nice. It mainly consists of similar traditional houses, most of which are in good shape. We had a nice view from our window. (The first review mentioned "ruins". This probably refers to a rundown storage building in the backyard. It is there but it is fairly small and has been mainly covered with cloth. Because of that, it did not spoil the view from our 2nd floor window - but it might be more visible if one stays on the 1st floor.)

The interior and the rooms are nice, tastefully furnished. There are various nice decorations, such as the tiling of a white owl on the floor near the entrance ("Baltā pūce" means white owl in Latvian). The room was very clean and well kept, but there were a few things that were not taken care of. One of reading lights over the bed has burned out and was not replaced and the liquid soap container in the bathroom was empty.

The heating in the hotal was working well. There were several free parking spaces in the front of the hotel and free Wifi. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Overall, we were happy with our stay.

The breakfast buffet consisted of traditional hotel selections: hot dog sausages, eggs, bread, cheese, jam, etc. The selection was not big but was reasonable for a small hotel. The amounts for many items were relatively small (e.g. a few slices of deli meat) and, when we arrived at the breakfast, plates for several items were empty or nearly empty. They were replenished by staff but relatively slowly. Overall, the breakfast was acceptable but we have had many better breakfast experiences in Latvian hotels.

We had a similar experience with dinner. While it was reasonable, we would probably have a faster service and bigger portions of food at the same price in some of Jomas street restaurants.
