Reviewed 25 June 2012

This hotel is quite large, in an old building. The location could not be much better, it is very easy to walk everywhere in the old town.
My room was facing to the backyard, so no view, but no noise from the street either. The room was very clean and everything worked. Even the fast and free Wi-fi.
The breakfast was quite versatile, but the breakfast room itself was not very cosy at the basement.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the street can be noisy, there are lively restaurants on the street.

Hotel is located in the heart of the old city area, not far form the town hall plaza. This location makes it very convenient to reach all the tourist sites in the area. Free parking was available in their courtyard, and the hotel staff helped with the luggage. A lift is available to reach the upper floors. Our room was clean, and the beds were comfortable. Breakfast choices were good. Free WIFI was available and worked flawlessly.

We stayed here for 6 nights and were very satisfied with the hotel The rooms are big and clean, the beds are quite comfortable, and the location is great. We got breakfast each morning, and found the selection to be very good (although be careful of the cottage cheese, definitely different than at home in the states). For 65 euros a night including breakfast and a great location, this property was a great value for the cost.

Room Tip: Choose a street facing away from the street if noise is an issue for you. Apparently it gets quite...

Nice hotel with friendly staff and exellent location. Good value for your money. Breakfast good, nice variety with some minor issues. The room was spacious and clean, as well as the bathroom. The free wi-fi didn't work very well time to time. Room was warm, and the bed was cosy.
But: sound isolation was inadequate. The door to corridor was regular, not sound isolated. The french window was new and with with double glazing, but street noise could be heard really clear. There's a popular bar right across the street, so you hear people singing and laughing all through the night. And top to that, there was strange motor-like sound at night, propably from CC fan something. So if you want to sleep, better use those ear plugs that you'll find at bedside drawer.

Very good location. Price is quite cheap. It is not a real 4 stars hotel, but a good 3 stars.
Breakfast buffet basic. Free wifi in all rooms. Small uncovered parking (6 euros). room size ok, bathroom basic but clean.

Riga is a beautiful city and this hotel is in a wonderful location, an ideal base for exploring the Old City and beyond.

We booked through Air Baltic and were very happy with the price which was excellent value.

Check-in was quick and simple, and our room was clean, well-appointed and comfortable. Our only minor niggle was that despite booking a double room, the hotel allocated a twin room. I'm aware that Latvia is not the most gay-friendly country, however one would expect a hotel with international visitors to expect the odd gay couple!

The beds were easily pushed together and we enjoyed the free tea and coffee, large flat-screen TV and minibar. The bathroom was modern and clean, though the Burberry-esque pattern on the walls and floor was out of keeping with the rest of the décor.

There are some bars across the street that play loud music, however the noise was not a problem with the windows shut.

Wifi is available in guest rooms free of charge, you just need to pick up a card from reception.

Breakfast was included and there was a good selection of hot and cold food and drinks.

Overall, a pleasant hotel in a good location and very good value if you can get the right price.

Excellent location, this hotel is just what you need for a brief stay in latvia. Literally 100m away from the best restaurants. Morning breakfast is good also (decent choice). Staff all very nice :) Sufficiently warm even though it was like -20 outside during our stay!
