I booked this hotel via Expedia. When I checked it, suddenly my booking was not valid, I had to take the "last room in the hotel" at a higher rate. It seems this isnt unusual. When I spoke to Expedia, they suggested this is a common occurence with this hotel, they tried to help but the hotel just saw a tourist and calculated how much they could increase the room rate.
The hotel is as poor a hotel as I ever stayed in, if you like cold rubber eggs, the breakfast is perfect, no food after 10:30 in the morning and only a local burger bar in walking distance.
There is nothing to do in the area, other than the Riga Arena across the road (which is why I was there).
If you are an avid collection of mould, dust and dead insects, this hotel is a dream, a virtual utopia.
