Central, only 10 minutes to walk to streets like A. Caka (clothing + shoes), Briviera (clothing + shoes), and the old town where you find many good restaurants and also great shopping!
Hotel & rooms
The hotel is elegantly designed and the staff is very helpfull and all speak english. Our standard room was romantic with a great comfortable bed, but the windows were extremely small. We were never in your room, but we found it hard to organize our shopping as there was not so much space, and the desk in the room took a lot of what space was left. The big + is the comfy bathroom and the shower. We loved it! Also, the hotel was very clean.
Food & Drink
The menu at the restaurant is not big, but we tried two dishes and were delighted! The bar is helpful and you can order a lot of diffirent alcohol drinks and choose your location for sitting.
The breakfast however was good the first day (eggs, sausage and bacon), but the next few days we were fed up with it. I wanted to have some bread, but in Latvia they prefer their bread hard and dry so I could not have it. This is the only setback apart from the somewhat small rooms, but I still chose to give this hotel an excellent marking as I've never stayed in a better hotel!
There are smoking rooms and you can smoke at the terrace (also with beer/wine/coffee ordered at the bar) till midnight.
We ordered through Hotels.com and payed about 400$ for two persons, 4 nights and thought it was well worth it, but knowing there are several cheap and OK hotels in Riga we would not hae payed more. We were promised by Hotels.com there would be a balcony in each room, but unfortunately that was not the case. I recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a quiet, luxurious hotel with walking distance to the city!
