I went for a city break from Friday to Monday to Riga. In general it is cheap and easy to use the public transport (bus) to go between airport - hotel - centre (0,4 Lat for one way). Bus station (line 22 or 53) is located about 200 metres from the hotel. The way to the centre isn't within walking distance (~ 5 km) and without any attractions. Restaurant and bar service personnel with moderate engagement. Service desk was friendly and pro-active.
Breakfast was offered up to 10:30 or 11:00 (weekend) on a moderate level. It isn't recommended to use the room without locked window before the busy road and the air-pollution.
