My partner and I travelled to Riga On Easter Sunday 2011.
The hotel was excellent, clean friendly staff with a good command of english. It's about 20 mins from the airport-tip there are mini buses that will take you to the Hotel for 1 Euro.
The hotel offers a roof top bar with a balcony for smokers, great views of the city and watching the sun go down. We ate once at the hotel room only, which was lovely, I had a pasta dish my partner a steak. The hotel has quotes on the walls from Mr Einstein which I found quite charming. The walk to the Old Part of Riga was only 15 minutes, a tangle of streets interwoven around churches.
The City itself was very, very clean. Great cafes and bars along with fantastic archtecture. The weather was really hot mid April warmer than Britain.
We had a guided walking tour with a friendly young woman-meet at the front of St Stephens Cathedral, the tour was great and payment through donations. Look for a Green Suitcase to spot the guide at noon.
The people are friendly and I felt very safe.
Would definitely go back.
