Well the Baltic Beach hotel was renovated after the Soviet Era. However it looks like the administration decided not to invest a penny into the renovation again and they try to make as much as possible operating what they have at the moment. The season in Jurmala is very short – June, July and August when the prices are really high. During the low season the hotel (from my point of view) is not profitable enough. So they save their money and don’t invest much into renovation. As a result the tear and wear are everywhere.
It is not 5 star of course. At the same time the hotel is extremely pricey. It is strange taking into account low service and accommodation.
Talking about good points – the hotel is the only one located at the first line with the direct access to the sea beach. But the central location means really a lot of people and overcrowded beach during the summer time. The rooms (most of them) have a really cool sea view from the balcony. The hotel is also located in the center of Jurmala's night and social life – Jomas street is 5 minutes by foot from the hotel (with a lot of restaurants and bars). The hotel has also relatively good opportunities for business meetings (conference center) and corporate events. The hotel is also known as VIP so when you worry about your status – it may have a sense to stay here. But in terms of price/quality/reliability – I would not recommend this place.
SPA is big and offers different programs. But it was not WOW at all. Bath and water complex look not clean enough and a bit smelly.
The restaurant is totally overpriced (just because it is 5 star on a paper) – be aware of mosquitos in June. I would not recommend using this restaurant because you may find other places with better quality and price.
