The purpose of of my trip to riga was a stag party so i wasnt expecting anything glamorous, not having booked the hotel myself, We arrived early on thursday evening having done the 8km cab ride from the airport, the front of the hotel does not look anything special but once through the archway you arrive into the lobby which is superb, check in was quick and easy as staff speak good english, i was sharing with two other guys and our room was on the 4th floor, on entering our room which was clean their was 3 single beds wardrobe, desk, mini bar and plasma tv. The bathroom was again clean, the shower was fast and had hot water it was a bit small (but then i am a big man), Note to familys or easily affended people when we switched our tv it went straight to the porn channel. The hotel was attached to a japanesse bar and resturant (which doubled as the breakfast room) beware of drink prices though we paid 20 lats for 4 beers 2 teas and 2 coffees which is about 26 pounds. Breakfast was great with lots of choice including fry ups cereals and toast etc. As for Riga itself local beer is roughly the same price as england but it bepends where you go beware of stripp clubs and bars alike as they are expensive, Overall i would reccomend thehotel for location and cleanliness and staff where very helpfull with our requests.
