The hotel is in a great location, much closed to Old Town than it may first appear. And the surrounding neighborhood has beautiful buildings (many embassies), good neighborhood restaurants and wine stores. While I frequently prefer to stay in the center of a city (i.e. Old Town), this location offeres quiet and yet easy access.
The rooms are very clean, very functional and even has a window that opens! As others have said, the staff is extremely helpful.
Many reviewers liked the breakfast - it is a huge assortment of food. I found the quality to be mediocre. After the first day, I stuck to the basics (fruit, cucumbers and the wonderful Latvian bread). I also found the food in the hotel to be sub-par.. After one lunch (soup and salad), I decided not to risk eating there again. My trip to the lounge on the top floor was also disappointing, but it could be an isolated incident. There was a large group of family/friends with many children who were running wild and screaming. The bartender was busy kissing his girlfriend who was sitting at one of the bar stools. Overall, an unpleasant and uncomfortable setting.
I would return again, but eat elsewhere.
