I stayed here with a group of friends for a weekend visit to Riga in July. The hotel is pleasant, I wouldn't say it's luxurious or anything, but is of a good quality for its price bracket. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, Vladamir always greeted us with a smile, and was happy to help with any queries (eg ordering us taxis, letting us know good places to go). The rooms were of average size and beds ok, the rooms appeared clean. The decor was nothing special, but again, I think it's about having the right expectations, so wouldn't mark the hotel down. Breakfast was a buffet, served in a large dining room, there was plenty on offer, both hot and cold, the only thing I didn't like was the 'lift' music being played in the background. The hotel is a little bit out from the centre of town, but is more than walkable. There is a small bar, downstairs by reception and the rooms had mini bars in (at reasonable prices). One minor point, which I'm hoping will be resolved is that I left an item behind, and made initial contact with the hotel, which they responded once, but they have not continued to follow up on my subsequent emails, I'd like to think the good service we received while staying would be extended. Overall, I think this hotel is a good place to stay if you're looking for good value for money, aren't expecting a five star hotel, but want good friendly service in a decent hotel. I would not have a problem recommending this hotel to others.
