Nice little hotel on the edge of the Old Town and is also very convenient for Bus & train stations and bus to the airport. Paid 55 Euros for the room. Although small, it was adequate. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom pretty spacious. Breakfast forgettable. Receptionist on arrival could do with a course at 'Charm School' but thereafter all staff were pleasant and cheerful.

One concern is that there is some street noise (at least in the front rooms). There is a backpackers hostel next door and people mill about in the street until the early hours. We had the windows closed so no real problem but, on hot evenings, the windows would need to be opened which would obviously increase noise levels.

Hotel Forums is extremely conveniently located, and walkable/bus-able/tram-able from everywhere you need to go. We had a junior double for about 54GBP (108 USD?), which was very clean with a well stocked mini bar and an operational TV. There wasn't a view, though, but we were in one of the cheaper rooms.

What I didn't like however, was the the hotel seemed to operate like a hostel - charging 1 Lat (about 1.20 GBP or 2.50 USD) for an extra pillow (only one each was provided), an extra blanket or the use of a hair-dryer for one hour. There was also a ridiculous inventory of all items in the room (down to ashtrays and cheap net curtains) along with the charges for replacement if damaged.

I don't know if this happened to other guests, but we were detained while checking out while our room was inspected by a member of staff to see that everything was as it should be. It hardly seemed a stag destination where rooms might be trashed, but they needn't have feared armageddon from two women on a rather gentile sight-seeing trip. Perhaps it might have something to do with the fact that, as an Indian, I had to be under greater scrutiny (as I found at Riga airport).

Certainly a decent place to stay and the reception staff were the few people we met who smiled when interacting with us. But rather petty for a not-so-cheap hotel.

A clean warm comfortable hotel with friendly reception staff, located just inside the Riga Old Town boundary, although i had some problems finding it , the first evening, when i found my bearings - what a great location this turned out to be. Buses, trams and Trolleybuses on the corner. Train station across the road, yet 5 minutes walk to the centre of old town, even being so close to the Main road, i encountered no problems with noise - i wasnt there on a weekend but a bank holiday, but this hotel is in a quiet street

The central market is located just over the road
The breakfast (i ate out most days- just my choice) where ok with choice of eggs ham or porridge with cheese toast and cake and tea or coffee

i cannot say my room had great views (some might) but everything else was just right for a short break in Riga
