“Spacious but noisy”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2013

I stayed on the 5th floor in the apt. 17 for three nights with three other guests. The place is spacious, although sparsely furnished, and reasonably clean. The worst downside is the incredible noise coming from elevators. If you have to sleep in the bigger bedroom at the back of the apartment, you should consider the noise coming from behind the wall: the voice of the elevator machinery can be well compared with a hoover switched on in the same room. So, unless you have no trouble in getting sleep and sleep like a log, you should absolutely avoid this room.

Although in the plan of the apartment it is shown that there should be a sofabed in the livingroom, neither of the couches has the bed mechanism. So it was not possible to sleep in the livingroom instead of the bigger bedroom. Will not come back to this place.

We stayed in 2 different apartments over a ten day period (simply because there wasn't availability in one apartment for the length of our stay. Both apartments were very spacious, clean, tidy and all the fittings were in great condition. The service was great, and the reception staff were very friendly and spoke excellent english. The only downside is that the apartments only have net curtains so the morning sun leads to some very early mornings. This is a bit of an issue if like us you have very dark bedrooms at home, and is the only thing that means RigaApartment just misses the 5 star rating.

I spent 5 nights in this apartment with my 18 year old son and I cannot recommend it highly enough. We stayed in apartment 11 which was on the second floor - great for me because I don't like lifts!
The apartment was huge - two large double bedrooms with huge wardrobes, a spacious living area with massive TV, kitchen off the living area and a spacious bathroom off the entrance hall.
The apartment was very clean and plenty of towels were provided. The bedding was clean and comfortable and the bed was very comfy. There were even feather pillows, so I needn't have packed my own! A decent hairdryer was provided and there was a washing machine in the bathroom.
When we arrived at the apartment via a taxi ride from the airport (choose AirBaltic Taxis as they're reliable, safe and will only charge 8 - 10 lats) it felt as though we were really out of the centre. However, it was a mere 15 minute walk into the old town/touristy area - our favourite route was along Terbatas Iela rather than Aleksandra Caka Iela (far prettier stroll and quieter too).
REALLY helpful staff who allowed me to log into my hotmail account on their computer downstairs to print off my boarding passes.
Just fabulous - really felt like our home.

We spent 4 nights in apartment 15 (5th floor). The apartment was really spacious, two large double-bedrooms with big closets, a living room with a sofa and two arm chairs, a bathroom with a tub and a kitchen with a dining table. All windows were facing the courtyard so the apartment was fairly quiet.

We can highly recommend this apartment for shorter and for longer stays as well. There’s a clothes washer, TV with many English channels (Cartoon Network, Discovery Channel, etc.), WiFi connection worked without any problems, the kitchen is well equipped and there’s a Rimi supermarket close by. You can walk to the Old City and the Railway station in 10 minutes and there are plenty of restaurants near the hotel. The staff at the reception was super friendly and helpful.

The only things we would have hoped for are thicker curtains in the bedrooms and air-conditioning (but we were able to keep the windows open so the apartment wasn’t too hot).

I stayed here with my two sisters in May. We had a 2 bed very spacious apartment, the location is a little outside the main tourist area but it I'd not a bad walk and I can recommend it. He service was friendly? My only criticism is that the curtains are in adequate and the lack of same disturbed our sleep but meant we were up early on the other hand.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with good curtains

Stayed for 4 days as a group of 4 in two separate apartments. Found it to be a clean, comfortable homely place to sleep and relax whilst not out and about. The facilities provided meant we could go down to the local Rimi Supermarket to get stuff to cook for breakfast, a lounge area to relax an chill.

The staff were all excellent, always so willing to help, provide assistance and give advice on places to go to go and how to get there.

The location is a good 10 minutes walk to Old Town. You can walk or try the buses or tram. Taxis on seeing we were foreign often refused to use their meter and charged us 5 lats.

Overall, a good place to stay and I have no problems recommending it

we were stayed in apartment number 2 in march 2013. It was still winter outside. And for us, who live in a sunny country, weather was too cold! But when we arrived to apartment we were surprised, because there is fireplace, not real - electronic, but anyway . Atmosphere was super romantic.. snow outside.. we have fire, drinking hot wine (which is very popular in Latvia). It's wonderful flat for two couples. Two big bedrooms and one living room with big tv and comfortable lounge zona. Kitchen is big, you can cook everything without problem!Nice and polite stuff. We really can advice to other people this place for stay!
