Reviewed 9 November 2013

I chose this location because it was close to our office and also had good reviews. It turned out to be a good choice. It is one of the best values in Riga. Although it is a half hour ride out from the old city, it is 1 block to city bus and 300 meters to the Krustabaznica No 6 tram stop (recommended during traffic times), currently 50 centimes cost to old city. The hotel is also only 1/2 kilometer to Alfa mall, one of the largest in Riga, with food court, restaurants, theatre and lots of shopping, including large grocery store. It is a small hotel with only 12-15 rooms. Because of a split schedule I stayed in two different rooms, one with two single beds and one with double. Both were very clean and comfortable. The property is in a quiet residential neighborhood, so none of the problems I had with live music at night in the old city. Except for a few conversations outside my window, I rarely heard anything in my room. Breakfast was modest but everything I needed, served from 7:30-10:30. Staff was always helpful, spoke English, Latvian and Russian. The only negative is they don't have baggage storage. I needed to store a bag overnight between stays, and they would have hid it a under a table in the dining area. Internet was always available in room and lobby and excellent during my stay.

We liked the hotel very much - helpful stuff, clean room, breakfast. Money exchange in shopping mall Alfa, you can also have something for dinner there. We have found nice (and cheap) cafeteria Oregano (Brivbas, 231) not far from here, and i have spotted a pizzeria - if you move to the center of Riga it will be on the left side at the corner.

Stayed here multiple times. Very good price and also very good value. Internet connection provided I believe by Lattelekom. On average I was getting 2 to 7 MBit/s. Upload also very good. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Though not so soundproof. Breakfast is quite good with good, tasty coffee and decent selection. Staff very friendly and available almost any time of the day to help you. In the evenings you can come down to reception and have a coffee/tea and some cookies. The also have fridge where you can buy a beer etc. Transportation is very good. 20 meters away is a bus/trolleybus stop which will get you to Old Town or City center in about 20 minutes. I would consider the area to be safe, parked the car next to hotel multiple times, no problems. About 800 meters walk direction out of the city is a huge shopping moll called Alfa where you can get pretty much everything. 400 meters away direction City there is a Maxima supermarket where until 22.00 you can buy pretty much everything you need to eat/drink.

Room Tip: I liked the room at the roof level.

It's a great hotel if you are on a budget and don't mind a 20-minute bus ride into the (modern) city of Riga. The most intriguing part for me (after all the good reviews) was how to get there once off the train. Let me tell you how: there are two buses that you can take from the Central Station: #40 and #21 (Google Maps have wrong numbers, btw). The direction for #40 is "Jugla-3" (for #21 I don't quite remember), the bus stop you'll need to get off at is "Dzērbenes iela" (all buses there have a display showing the name of the next bus stop, after 15 or so minutes of a ride keep an eye on it). From the Central Station you'll need to go across the street (by underpass) to the bus stop on Merķeļa iela (you should notice hotel "Irina" there), buy a bus pass (as many rides as you please, 1 LT per 2 rides = $1 a ride) in a newspaper kiosk near the bus stop (make sure #40 is stopping on that bus stop, btw) - and you are all set. From the bus stop you will *not* see the hotel, so you'll need Google Maps after all (a printout served me well), the walk is 3-5 minutes, around the "Subaru" dealership facing the main road.

Also, be prepared to pay up front - it's the hotel's policy. The breakfast there is *good*, the 6-9pm tea is just tea being available in the lobby, nothing fancy. There's a patio outside the main entrance that smokers will appreciate. If you require absolute silence in the morning it may be disturbed by seagulls (they fly into the city looking for food), otherwise it's a perfect off-the-beaten path hotel.

Very friendly small hotel, very good from the point of view on staff and pricing. Room and bathroom were clean and well maintained, offering good level of comfort and quiet sleep, thanks to location. Reception is open 24h, parking is free and under video surveillance, free hi-speed wireless internet is available. Breakfast was included in the price, very basic but OK to start the day. One of the Riga's largest shopping centres is located few hundreds meters from the hotel, you may spend a half of the day there.

On the other hand, the hotel is located quite far from the centre, however bus/trolleybus stop is near about 30m from the hotel, estimate 15-20 min driving a car or riding a bus. I have also noted that some equipment in the room (e.g. TV) should be repaired or replaced.

Conclusively would stay at this hotel again and recommend as a good budget accommodation for a short-stay or transit travellers in Riga, suitable both for single or family trips.

I was on a training course in the same area of the city so the location suited me down to the ground. Taxis to the city centre are cheap and there's tram & bus stops within minutes of the front door.

Rooms were huge and very comfortable. Likewise the bathrooms. I'd certainly return here if I were visiting Riga again. It's great to find a reliably decent hotel in this area. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable, providing a very welcome "tea time" of an evening where tea and biscuits are made available in the breakfasting area.

Very nice hotel just a bit difficult to find, it is located outside the city center on the north side of town. Room was very good and so was breakfast.
