Reviewed 16 April 2014

Two couples visited hotel in march, worried when booked as only 3 stars and some of the reviews were not brilliant, but there was no need to have any concerns I think it is probably under rated should be a four star, spotless clean, breakfast was fine location good and friendly staff. I have travelled quite a bit over the years and stayed in everything from tents to 5 star quality hotels and can say this is a hotel I would return to if I went to riga again, would hesitate to recommend it. You get what you pay for at the end of the day and for what we paid we received a bargain.

Great value hotel about 20 minutes walk from old town or only 5 euro in a taxi

The hotel rooms were basic but nice and featured tea/coffee making facilities, mini bar, iron, hair dryer, desk, safe, aircon and modern bathroom.

The staff on reception were very friendly too and helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them.

Would recommend!

Nice clean hotel a little out of town,friendly staff and nice breakfast selection. 15 mins from the main train station on foot.
No 1 trolley bus takes you direct into oldtown,however the walk is not too bad either.

I was there with my boyfriend and we are quite happy about this hotel. Rooms are not very big but it is enough for several days.. Bed was very soft :)) You have to wait for about 15min if you want to have hot water in 5th floor.

We arrived late as we got confused getting there.
Hotel should provide better directions to get to the hotel. As once you are there it is quite easy and the tram ride is easier than the bus.
Breakfast was quite good but can be crowded.
They gave us the wrong key when we arrived and that room was large and fresh (air con)
Our room was small and aircon not working - they could not provide a fan to cool the room..
Once orientated the hotel is in a good location.

Nice hotel and friendly staff. Room was simple but clean and warm. Bathroom is very nice: spacious, bright, warm, with bathroom and shower in it. Good food for breakfast. Allocated a bit away from the hotel , but there is a lot of public transportation available.

The staff in reception bent over backwards to help us. Room was spotless and bright. Beds and especially pillows were comfortable. Good central location. Good choice for breakfast and long and late breakfast period. Only complaint we had was lack of ordinary tea bags and milk in room but bought own tea bags anyway. If we return to Riga we would definitely stay here again
