“Great place”
Reviewed 27 June 2014 via mobile

Love this hotel. Central location close to dozens of restaurants. Great base for holiday exploration of the old city.

Large rooms. Clean. Great bathrooms. Good air conditioning. Brilliant breakfast. Staff were very helpful. Taxis from airport and then back readily available.

Keep checking prices they change regularly.

Stayed June 2014, travelled solo

Yes, it can be loud on week-ends if your room faces the street so, knowing that, bring and use earplugs. The hotel itself is comfortable, a bit on the spartan side (only mirror is in the w/c), well positioned for walking the cobblestone streets, and staff is helpful.

Best of all, the breakfast is outstanding: something for every taste, including champagne, hot and cold dishes, more choices than expected. We thought breakfast in our fancy hotel in Saint Petersburg, Russia, was excellent. This one is better, even without the caviar.

Stayed here for the second time for a business trip. The hotel is a perfect location for bars and restaurants which are plentiful. The rooms are large and clean and the bathroom is decent enough.
Hotel staff are helpful and friendly and breakfast is decent for Latvian standards. The nightclub outside provides an alarm clock between 3 and 5 most mornings especially if you are a front facing room, where I have stayed twice now. This is every night of the week and not just weekends.
Overall a decent hotel but the noise outside probably means I won't stay again.

Our room was amazing, huge and well-decorated with free wifi (and the bathroom had a bath - just what was needed after a long day of sightseeing!), but we were at the front of the hotel and it was a bit noisy at night due to the pubs across the road. The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was very good.

Not much to add to other reviews. Room was big, clean and well furnished. Bed was comfortable. Bathroom fine - not enormous, but more than adequate.Complimentary bottled water in the room was appreciated.

The hotel bar only opens from late afternoon until 23:00 but so many other bars around the hotel that not a problem

Great location makes it an excellent choice to be able to explore Riga from.

The only downside was the road noise through the night (until 6am) from other bar users who drank in the road. A room towards the back of the hotel or higher may help (I was on the 3rd floor)

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the roadside to minimise noise

Very spacious room in the center of the city, we stayed on a high floor and did not have any problems with street noise. The location of the hotel was its selling point to us, as it is very easy to walk to anywhere in the old town within 10 minutes. Breakfast was included with our stay and was a good way to start out each day.

Reviewed 22 March 2014

We chose this hotel because of so many good reviews on Trip Advisor and several other sites. It was a good choice. The only real negative was the street noise from very late or early carousers
in the street below. The windows were so large in the superior room we had and we were on the second floor. Everything thing else was great at this hotel and I highly recommend it. The room was huge and well appointed with a large enough bathroom with complimentary toiletries. The breakfast provided in the room price was very good and quite varied, eggs,bacon, cold meats, cheeses,fruit, porridge, yogurt, cereals, juices and decent coffee or tea. Staff was multilingual and helpful. Several English, German, Russian and other languages were available with about twenty channels also BBC and CNN news channels. The location is excellent within easy walking distance to most attractions and a large shopping mall two minutes away. There were several quite good restaurants with a five to ten minute walk as well. Many bars and pubs were also nearby. Hotel transfer to the airport was 15Euros and took about twenty-five minutes.
If you are a light sleep mention it to the staff and try for a room away from the street.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the street side.
