I only spent one night at the Bruninieks hotel before a longer stay at another hotel in Riga but I was pleased. It is a simple and comfortable hotel, also within walking distance to the main attractions in Riga.
The hotel consists of two buildings which are connected by a lobby with a glass roof. I found it quite interesting and as I read on the hotel website one of them is a completely renovated Art Nouveau building.
A colleague and I got a very big double room on the first/entrance floor. It was simple but clean and quiet. The bathroom was also big and fresh, with a shower and clean towels.
Internet is available in the lobby, free of charge, as well as in the rooms for a small fee. I think it cost me 2 LVL in the room, which is the equivalent of around 3 EUR or 4 USD.
There is a small luggage room on the entrance floor, modern furniture and a big TV screen in the lobby and plenty of tourist info at the reception desk. The staff were friendly and helpful.
The breakfast room on the top floor is not anything fancy and neither is breakfast itself, but it's good enough to start the day. There's bread, butter, cheese, ham, salami, boiled eggs, coffe and tea and so on. If I remember it well, only one of the two elevators goes all the way up to the breakfast room and breakfast is usually served from 7 or 7.30 in the morning.
I'm not quite sure whether there were few people staying there at the time, or if the rooms are properly sound-isolated, but it seemed very quiet, which made sleeping very easy.
I would recommend this hotel, the rates on the website are not very high and I'm sure it's a nice, simple alternative for a pleasant stay in Riga.
