I had great expectations of this hotel from looking at some of the reviews on this site. However, I was a bit disappointed. I think it may be the usual story that some of the rooms have been renovated and some of them have not. My room was sort of in between, with a really nice bathroom but the rest was rather ordinary and functional. There was no safe to store valuables or laptop computers.
The hotel is situated in a nice area of parkland. It is generally a very quite area- there are no shops nearby. It is about 1.5 km from the old town which is across the river. The Old Town is very easy to get to (take tram 4 or 5). TIckets are 0.5 lats and can be bought from the kiosk shop outside the hotel. The trams seem to stop soon after 11 p.m., and girls might not want to attempt the walk back on their own, as some of the areas you cross are a bit lonely. However, it still seemed a safe sort of area.
The breakfast was o.k. with hot and cold food, but the choice of fresh fruit was limited, with most of it being the canned fruit variety. The breakfast restaurant looks a bit Spartan, but is o.k. and the staff clean up very efficiently.
The main advantage of this hotel seems to be the price- I paid about 50 Euros a night which seems to be a reasonable deal compared with some of the hotels in the Old Town.
