My boyfriend booked me a surprise weekend away to Riga in December 2012 and it could not have been more perfect!
The Monte Kristo hotel is in the Old Town and a very short walk from the bus stop to the airport and central station. Being so close to the Old Town the hotel is very convenient for exploring the many delights that Riga has to offer.
The hotel was warm, cosy and friendly. Our room was lovely and spacious (we were in room 116 on the ground floor) and although it was a little noisy being on street level, it didn't hamper our experience at all. The room was very clean and the shower was extremely powerful and kept a constant temperature which is important to me!
Breakfast is served until 11am which suited us and served cheese, ham, eggs, bread, pancakes (sweet and savoury), cereal, porridge, yoghurt, tea, coffee etc. A great way to start a day of sightseeing.
Overall I was thoroughly impressed with the hotel and found it much cosier and welcoming than some of the chain hotesl I've stayed in - a little gem!
