The hotel Man-Tess is located in Vecriga. That means it will be noisy if You have the windows open. When they are closed You are completely at peace. Go for the old style suite. At Euro 85 per night it is a bargain in Riga. Reception is decidedly low key. There is a koi pond and the Budgerigar who is Man or Tess. Also a small breakfast area. Service from the front desk is beyond belief. They have no room service but Marianna, the receptionist bought flowers, a bottle of Riga Balzam, Riga champagne, piragi, sprats, glavas siers and presented receipts with nothing added to them! We of course added a thank You letter of Euro 15, but she really did not expect this. This kind of service is quite unexpected and beyond belief in a three star hotel. Brealfast is quite OK. The scrambled eggs are NOT made from powdered eggs and there are piragi for breakfast and a double espresso. The hotel bar is ridiculously affordable. A BOTTLE of Jack Daniels from the bar costs Euro 20 and a large beer (Zelta) 1 Euro. There is no restaurant. The suite is well appointed and with creaking floors. The bathroom is well lit and OK. The hot water takes time but it will be there, just You wait and see. The ONLY concern we have is the lack of air condition, which makes the room hot in august. Open the windows when You go out for dinner and You will be fine when You come back. Do not expect Relais &Chateaux refinement but You do not pay for that either. The Man-Tess remains a solid, affordable choice for weekenders wanting to do Riga and we will definitively return.
