I was looking for a cheap hotel to stay in Latvia and came across this little gem.
I use tripadvisor for all my hotel needs and again came across some bad reviews.
On arriving at the hotel from the airport you should pay no more than 15 euros
The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room had a nice view of the church may be a bit spooky at night but was nice. The room was also a fair size too. Room 609.
The bar on the outside of the hotel is very nice and service is normally pretty quick.
The food downstairs in the bar is not the greatest but fairly cheap.
The spa in the hotel is also nice a little small but all you need. If you pay for a massage you get a hour and a half free in the spa rather than 20 euros per person. We paid for the 25 euro massage which was really nice so you kind of get the spa then for 5 euros.
It is about a 10 min walk to the old town under the railway bridge and you are there. you cant get lost with this hotel as its next to the science academy which has about 10 red lights on top of it which you can see from the old city.
The old city is fairly expensive mind a bit of a shock for me to be fair.
You can also get a taxi from the opposite side of the train station to Jumula for 40 euros its really nice and defo worth a visit, you can also get the train but it takes 1 hour 20 mins.
Would defo recommend this to anyone.
