At first we found the neighborhood rather scary - especially during the late evening. However, the hotel offered several conveniences that can easily otherwise be taken for granted:

1. Secure and reasonably priced parking facilities
2. Quiet neighborhood
3. Tram station right outside
4. Hotel located only 3-4 stops away from the city center - barely a 12 minute ride!
5. Breakfast is decent; but at the ridiculously cheap price I think it's a bonus to have been included anyways
6. Cute, basic and charming in its own way

My girlfriend and I picked this hotel mostly because of its name (an affectionate nickname for her too!) - and if I ever visit Riga again, although I might think of trying out someplace new, I'd definitely spend one night here for old time's sake!

We liked the way we were met by the receptionist. The stay itself was more than we expected from a budget hotel. The room/bath were both small, but nice and clean. Breakfast was the way we like it (coffee was good !). No big sounds or disturbance during night. Surroundings were part of old Riga and nothing wrong with that, only interesting if you are open for it. The tram brings you in few minutes to City center or in the other direction to The Lido Recreation Centre. Where they have reasonable and fantastic range of food for everyone
