“Almost faultless”
Reviewed 6 February 2013

We stayed here four nights in Jan-Feb 2013. Room 412.

Pros:
* Excellent location - just round the corner from the Blackheads building.
* Breakfast. Included and its all you can eat, with cereal.
* The room was a reasonable size, tastefully decorated, clean and the bed comfortable.
* Staff were polite and helpful.
* Interesting decor, quite charming in a vaguely baroque sort of way.
* Quiet

Cons:
* The name - sounds like a Chinese restaurant and I had some misgivings when booking because of it.
* The shower cubicle didn't allow a lot of room for stretching one's elbows.
* Dinner - the restaurant is nice and the prices are reasonable. However, its the sort of place where you feel that the chef is counting the ingredients. I had prawn ravioli and there were 5 pieces of pasta, 2 prawns, 2 pieces of asparagus...you get the drift. But there are plenty of other restaurants nearby that are more generous with their portions.
* You have to pay for wireless internet, though there is a computer for guests use in the foyer.

None of these cons bothered me enough to downgrade my 5* rating, made on the basis of the very positive pros.

We have stayed only 1 night. We booked a double room and the hotel offered us Suite without extra charges. We enjoyed the room so much! It was very clean including towels and bothrobe. The beg is extra large and extremely comfortable - the sleep was excellent! The room itself is very spacious (of course it could be warmer inside for my personal preference). We enjoyed so much sauna and jacuzzi. It was a very relaxing treat. However I would like to notice that jacuzzi was losing slightly the water. We notices that the floor was covered with a bit of water. The location is excellent - just in the heart of old Riga. Of course, as you can immagine the centeral streets of the old Riga are noisy because of parties till the morning. I will definitely come back and I do recommend this hotel! Excellent value for money!

Room Tip: We stayed in the room 201 (with sauna & Jaciuzzi) = excellent room!

Stayed 5 nights to celebrate my Birthday. Lovely hotel, good value for money, nice central location, everything within walking distance. Quite ornate in decoration but thats part of its charm. Bedroom was spacious and spotlessly clean. No complaints. Breakfast had a good choice of both hot and cold food. The coffee was delicious! If you are there on a Thursday night its well worth going to the Latvian Grill Party in the hotel courtyard. 20 euros per person for as much as you can eat and the food just keeps coming all night! If we stay in Latvia again we will definitely revisit this hotel.

The location of the hotel is brilliant in the city center. The breakfast was very tasty and the variety of food was impressive. The staff was friendly and helpfull. What I didn't like too much is the bed and pillows, for me they were rather old and uncomfortable.

We stayed for 3 nights and the location was perfect for exploring Riga on foot. The rooms were spacious but were very tired and the towels were small and thin. Overall it felt like it had seen better days.

Very conveniently situated for restaurants etc. Only stayed one night as we were travelling around Latvia. Would have stayed longer if we had the time. Breakfast was amazing, huge choice food available.

The reservation and reception staff provided prompt communications, answering all our questions. Hotel is very comfortable in a quiet location on the edge of Old Town and convenient to everything without being in the noisy center of activities. Wish it had been warm to take advantage of the great terrace and patio. Great breakfast. Would definitely stay here again.
