Very friendly welcome from the desk staff. Clean airy feel to downstairs with large bar / restaurant with tables in secluded quadrangle. No lifts but porter available. Rooms are clean and have been renovated recently with excellent power shower, compact layout but rather thin walls. Quiet area out of centre but with the no 5 tram taking you directly to or from Centraltirgus - the big tram stop near the bus station and market. This is close for the train station as well. From a long distance bus, turn left outside the bus station (watch out for pickpockets here!) under the bridge and cross the road via the underpass. The no 5 tram stops at the far platform. Alternatively it stops near the bridge next to the big square with the 3 riflemen statue. Tram rides are 20c and the journey takes 10 mins to get to Slokas Iela. Look for house numbers on opposite side of road - hotel is no. 49. The stop is after the big road with the branching tram line (where the no 4 tram turns off to the left). Hotel staff will organise taxi to airport for 8Ls which seems to be the standard "hotel organised" price. We have been asked for 8Ls from outside the station as well. Breakfast was good with porridge which was actually semolina - delicious mixed with jam and took me back to school days. Hotel has large snooker room on ground floor. Peace and quiet spoiled for us by noisy Lithuanian hockey youth team visiting with beer and attitude. However this was hardly the fault of the hotel. Overall - good for a short stop and no problem to be out of old Riga which can be noisy with English stag parties shouting until 7am!
