We stayed at Hotel Riga for three nights on from 16th August. We had a room on the 5th floor overlooking The National Opera House and the beautiful floral gardens. We could see all the roof tops over the city. But we noticed that they had started to put up scafolding over the pretty floral carpeted lawn. The noise started Before 7am waking everybody up with a blast from these huge speakers.This turned out to be a baseball tornament that went on all night for twenty four hours without a break, starting on the 17th August.. The noise from their boom boom speaker system was terrible. We had tripple glazing but still couldnt hear our tv, and the glass in the window was viberating. I do not know how it was allowed to take place The whole of the six storey park side of the Hotel Riga must have been awake all night. We didnt get any sleep, it was like noise torture. The next morning at breakfast half the Hotel was there at 7.30am? We were so dissapointed, we had paid to stay here, for a relaxing holiday? We had no idea that this was opart of Riga festival. Why would we have paid to put ourself through this?
