This hotel has to be one of the best places to stay in Riga just because of its excellent location in the centre of the old town. None of the major sights is more than a 5 minute walk, and the area is very safe. If you are a light sleeper (or in fact anyone who isn’t deaf or drunk) you might like to ask for a room at the back as the street outside can be noisy with passers by up to 3am!
We got a great deal through one of the hotel booking sites, and breakfast was included. Normally breakfast in European hotels (and especially Eastern Europe) is the kind of food that makes you glad you don’t live there, but this was actually very good. There was a nice range of cereals, croissants, fruit juice & even sausage & fried potatoes, plus cold meats and cheese for our continental cousins.
Wifi is free, available in the rooms, and high speed. Safety deposit boxes are also free, behind the reception desk. I had no problem with my netbook, but you won’t get a 15” laptop in there. The hotel do have a PC you can use (1Ls for 30 mins).
The hotel is also historically interesting. Built from a collection of buildings that was once a convent, you can still see part of the original medieval city wall (outside room 105). The service is polite and more efficient than you should expect from a country which only emerged from occupation 20 years ago, and although the rooms are basic, they are clean an nicely furnished for a short stay in this beautiful city.
