When one chooses bed & breakfast accommodation, one always takes the risk that the hosts may not be as welcoming and friendly as one would wish.No such doubts here. Diga and Ric are the most convivial hosts one could wish to meet and we felt immediately relaxed in their company. After we had settled in, we all sat around a table and discussed Riga over coffee and cake. Diga and Ric gave us maps and recommendations of places where to eat and visit.The accommodation is really tastefully decorated in harmony with the structure of huge wooden beams and heated wooden floors. The large bed was one of the most comfortable beds I hace slept in. The breakfast was both delicious and plentiful all cooked to our requirements. This imposing property is located in the quiet affluent district of Mezaparks and a few minutes walk takes you to the No 11 tram stop, where frequent trams take you into the old town in twenty minutes or so. I certainly would not hesitate to recommend Homestay to all my friends and trip advisor readers as it is a really wonderful alternative to staying in a city centre hotel where late evening rowdiness can sometimes be a problem to ones quality of sleep.
