The hotel is about 30 minutes from the airport by taxi, there is a bus which I am told charges only 1.80 Euros which seems to be the standard for paying the driver anywhere in Riga.The bus station is only one department store block to the west of the main station (Centrala Stacjas ). You must use the subways to cross the roads.
All the staff were friendly and helpful and even my chambermaid spoke English.
My room was 225 and although It only looked onto the windows of a block of old flats there was no traffic noise and I enjoyed four nights of good sleep which I doubt could be said for rooms at the front of the hotel. Room and shower room were excellent.
T V was a bit strange as there seemed to be two Latvian channels and three Russian plus, of course, B B C world service. I couldn't find a weather channel but the Reception always knew what the day would bring.
The breakfast choice was huge albeit some were very Baltic/Russian i.e.pickled fish or cucumber for breakfast.
I ate at the Hotels Boulevard 33 restaurant and again despite some of the dishes being Baltic/Russian I always found something to eat. the food was well cooked and beautifully presented.
This is an hotel I have no reservation in recommending.
