Circus
Ranked #48 of 69 Riga B&B and Inns
Reviewed 1 March 2014 via mobile

A hotel which is more like hostel, not worth the money they ask for it. Rooms are not very clean and basicly no proper service. Breakfast was rather poor. If you want to get something better for this value, try hotel Irina, which is just two steps away.

Stayed: February 2014, travelled solo

We heard so many things about this hotel but coming into the room, there is no fridge or coffee maker, weird and if you ask the front desk about these things they tell us it is a fire hazard??
The whole hotel smells like smoke because of the people smoking cigarettes all over the place, the food is very poor in the pizzeria and the West side Deli was the worst.
Running out of hot water every time you take a shower, the wallpaper is coming of the walls and the maid service keeps knocking to check our toilets??

The negatives are many. Where should I start? The breakfast was nice (for me, as Easterner) and horrible for my husband(as Scandinavian) - local food, bought from the so called ''bakery''. The coffee was awful. The ''bathroom'' was located INSIDE the room - shower cabin placed 1cm away from the bed. Unexpected. The toilet had a door (thanks God). The cleanliness wasn't present at all. I suspect they haven't changed our sheets from the previous visitor. The bed - for 1 person, in a double room. Evacuation exit - none. Only through the door. Windows - could open only 10cm. Location- in a hidden backyard in a quite dark place (dark not only at night). The neighbourhood wasn't the best one. We chcked out 1 night earlier and the reason was : the Russians, running this B&B had a huge fight (not a verbal, but a real one). They didn't stop before 1AM. I was about to call the police but had fear to do it because the action was happening just outside our door of which only the owners had a key (not us!). Left at 7AM on the following moring and went to KB B&B which had a better location, the same price and way better service! Do not ever approach Circus if you don't wish your holiday to be ruined by some village Russian people.
