Nice service! Wonderful roofterasse with amazing food. Free wifi and spa-department. We had a great stay and it's cheap and easy to get around by bus. Definitely worth the money. We also took a massage which was great. The standard is really good and the breakfast was good. You an walk downtown which we did the first couple of days but then we found out about the bus which only took 7 min. And the supermarket Rimi is very close located to the hotel. All and all a really nice stay! We would definitely go back!

Had stayed here before---most significant change was internet access was now free, instead of $8.00 per day--and wireless actually worked. Location for my purpose was excellent. Breakfast buffet passable, but no change in day to day content--boring. Onsite restaurant for dinner extremely pricey for Riga. Mall with Rimi hypermarket (with extensive, cheap and extensive Latvian/ international food) take away deli and cheap food court just 200 meters to the South. Non winter months access easy. December-January quite a trek.
Prepaid voucher at reasonable rate $68.00 versus $56.00 at Maritim Park. But this is for a "single room, with single bed sort of like a cruise ship lower class cabin, both in size and view (virtually none). Better location than Maritime Park, except for Trolley access. Strange but not unacceptable feature is that door to room opens out into corridor instead of in to room.

Relatively close from Riga's old town. Modern, clean and Very quiet and peaceful location both during the day or night (surprised because I attended for NYE 2012). Great, healthy breakfast buffet with several options and good quality. Nice, helpful and attentive staff providing all the help and info you could need.
A worthy and excellent option for anyone, no matter if being couple, family, friends for leisure or business trip. Awesome view and good amenities.
Flexible and modular room-setting (required extra bed).
Downsides were limited products and frigo-bar product replacement as well as towel replacement and the small and old CTR TV. However it had cable and worked well.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are the best option, higher floors have less transit.

What I did enjoy the most from my stay was the view Islande Hotel has to offer. The open deck restaurant is amazing and nothing tops the view from there. You get the top view of Old Riga (beautiful view).
The staff couldn't had been better. They were helpful and willing to answer any question from car rental to shuttle service to and from the hotel.
The restaurants were excellent and the food was above all I had during my stay. The breakfast buffet is worth ever penny with a variable selection.
The room was clean and well set except for the small tube television. Nothing like a quiet peaceful room.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone

Floor carpeting should be renovated but location tidiness service amenities and facilities are absolutely price worth. The Spa is offering free morning sauna.Restaurant at 9th floor offers gourmet dining (try latvian bacon carpaccio) and a perfect panorama of Riga...in case of biz trips, please note it is located 400mt from Riga expocentre
