“Great hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

Everything taken together, I liked staying in this hotel. Some plusses:
- great rooms
- awesome breakfast buffet
- central location (near train station, walking distance of old centre)
- decent gym

Some minuses:
- the hotel and rooms were hot! Aircon only gets the temperature down to 22 degrees and the windows don't open
- our room wasn't made between the two nights we stayed there, even though we left the room by 11am. We had to phone down to get some fresh towels

Firstly, if you don't like hustle and bustle then this hotel is definitely not for you. This is a big, very popular hotel in a very convenient place:

Bus station - 1 min away
Train station - 5 mins
Coach station - 10 mins
Old town - 10-15 mins

The rooms are perfect. Very modern with lots of space, comfy bed, big bathroom and air con too. We're located round the back so no outside noise at all.

The breakfast buffet is well stocked at peak times but a nightmare trying to get seated and around. Arrive a bit later and there is still lots of food and it's a lot calmer making it more enjoyable.

The bar is located in the lobby and can get very busy. There is a small outside bar too but outside is busy and noisy.

We enjoyed our stay here as we don't mind the madness at times but my two negatives would be:

Bit of a chore checking in as only one desk open on a Friday afternoon.

Plates not cleared quickly in breakfast area so struggle to find a space at peak times.

Clean and nice decor, good location close to many main functions in the city. Breakfast good quality. One major let down: we were not able to check in at 14,00. Clerk informed us that check in starts at two, but there is no guarantee you will get the room at that time. It is a reoccuring problem the hotel is aware of, but chooses to do nothing to solve it. Lobby is a mess with restless hotel guests waiting to check in. Staff is trubbled by this and becomes defensive, unfriendly and your visit gets off to a bad start. A need of more flexible cleaning procedures is evident. This could be a great hotel, but i am very hesitant to staying here again.

We've stayed at this hotel a couple of times and have always been happy with our stay. The location is excellent: right in the city centre (close to the central station - also Old City is within a walking distance). The interior design is beautiful and modern; the rooms are nice and clean. The breakfast room is spacious and the breakfast itself: yummy! Good value for money, can truly recommend it!

overall a very good hotel , nicely decorated and very clean, lovely bar and restaurant. the only thing was the area was a bit scruffy with buildings next door run down. if i was to stay in riga again i probably would choose a hotel nearer to the old town as its further than you think in high heels.
