Having stayed in highly praised Hotel Centra the previous time, we didn’t expect much from this hotel as it was much more modestly rated. And so during our stay we couldn’t help ourselves comparing the two. In our opinion, Gertrude beats Centra on almost all the fronts. It’s got much more character and style, the breakfast is far superior, it’s less noisy and more budget friendly. It would be almost perfect … if only teleported closer to the center. Alas, it is situated outside the old town in rather meaningless part of the city and long walks in the cold spoil all the fun. For those who found themselves stuck in the same district, we would like to list what can be found down the same street: Latvian self-service eatery Lido, Georgian restaurant Marani, Italian place Olive, bakery Martina Bekereja, and two food stores Rimi and Maxima, both 300 meters away. In any case, taxi to the center is only around 3 lats.
