Been in riga quite a few times, but this one was unintentional - missed my connecting flight with airBaltic and they reserved a room for me here. Definitely an improvement from the previous hotel they booked me into.
The hotel is about 2 km from the center, on the other side of the river (looking from the center). It's an older hotel, but the rooms seem to be recently renovated - the room style very 90's - at least in the standard rooms. My room looked pretty much like the first picture on their standard room page on their web site. The lighting making it look a little better in the picture. Entering the room the first time felt like going to a badly heated sauna - really warm and a little humid. But turning the air conditioning on helped pretty fast. Would say rather basic but clean. WiFi worked well in the room.
The check-in and -out were friendly and fast. Arrived late so did not check out the restaurants, but the breakfast was surprisingly good. Especially the salmon and the fish salads.
Would I stay here again - probably not. But that's mostly because of the location. The hotel itself is ok.More
