“Special Property in Old Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2009

This is a very special property in the heart of Old Town Riga. Everything was perfect, the modern hotel with wonderful artwork , free internet, flat screen tv, a charming breakfast room with an incredible selection of foods, and a non-smoking hotel but the employees are truly a step above. I had an unfortunate situation where my wallet was stolen. The employees assisted me in contacting my credit card company and arranging for a new card to be sent to my next hotel in Moscow and even faxed the new hotel a letter verifiying everything.
I recommend this hotel without hesitation.

I'm going to keep this brief, all you need to know is that this hotel is just brilliant. It's 3 stars but the rooms are very big and have large LCD televisions and cool bathrooms. I simply melted into the bed! The decor is brown, with wood panel finishes. Simple and clean.

You will get comments from people saying the street outside is noisy. Of course it can be on weekend nights! It's in a prime central location, hence the name. If you hear really loud noise, shut the window. You can blame the mainly Irish and English stag parties or drinkers, they're the idiots mainly making it, it's not the hotel's or the city's fault! But the windows are sound proofed, you will get some noise creeping through but nothing that will disturb your sleep. Once you know this, you have nothing to complain about!

Staff were very kind, as are Latvians in general. It's a perfect base to explore, right in the old town, between two fantastic churches. It's not far from the train station either or the bus top for the airport. There is also a shopping centre nearby and many fantastic restaurants.

Their prices are very reasonable and I hope they can keep them that way. If they do, along with the continued quality they are providing now, then this hotel will remain number one on here.

If location is important, this hotel cannot be beat. It's location was right in the middle of Riga's old town.

The hotel itself was build years ago, so it shows some "funky" signs of a hotel that maybe was design perfection in the 70s, but that comes across with charm and gives the hotel a outstanding sense of style, I thought.

The rooms are large, comfortable and complete adequate. Really comfortable bed. Nice TVs, if that matters to you, with like a dozen English channels.

The restaurant had a decent breakfast and the incidental prices were fair and in-line with the room prices, which you can see for yourself us TA.

For Riga, it might very well be a 5, but using my worldwide standards, it's just a 4...not sure that you could get anything better in Riga, though. I was quite happy.

Having read the reviews on Tripadvisor, I was prepared to find the hotel to be of a high standard. However, it certainly exceeded my expectations. Rooms are big, clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful. Room rates were very acceptable.

Only small downside was it was a little noisy on the Saturday evening.
