“pleasant and well situated”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2011

Ended up booking this as part of my flight with AirBaltic without doing much research. Was very pleasantly surprised by how nice it was, how friendly and chatty the staff were, the location which and the room. Unfortunately I wasn't there long so didn't get around to trying the breakfast (sleep seemed more appealing) or the balcony beer garden near the roof and can't comment but based on everything else can recommend it.

Perfectly situated near the railway and bus station, and from the back entrance you get directly out in the old town. Comfortable air conditioned rooms. Free wellfunctioning wireless internet. Breakfast not that impressive, but adequate and quite OK. Price moderate.

Our room was clean, nice and modern. Two minus: the windows of our room pointed to lobby and reception, and there were not a pillow "menu" (pillows were very hard and thin). Free wifi worked well. The breakfast was not special but ok. The service was great. I really recommend the snacks of the lobby bar (spring rolls, club sandwiches etc.)

View from the sixth floor bar is gorgeous! Perfectly located. On the main street in front of the hotel, Bus 22 goes right to the airport The back entrance leads to Old Town and only a few blocks from the Daugava River!!

Room Tip: Our room was on the main street and train station side(front) of the hotel. We had absolutely no pr...

The hotel's location is convenient, the rooms interior are brand new and overall very clean.
The positive features, however, were overshadowed upon setting foot in the hotel.
During check-in, we were told there was 'a problem with the door locks' in some of the rooms (ridiculous excuse! - obviously overbooked. Even the taxi driver commented: 'again their door locks'? and laughed...), and were sent to another hotel in the old city (Justus Hotel, highly recommended). Since our booking was on half-board basis, we asked to have dinner at Justus Hotel but Avalon's reception refused to cover the expense for our dinner. They said 'they can come and have dinner here at the Avalon if they want' i.e. stay in one hotel, eat at another!! Apparently they need to review their policies and train their staff in dealing with such problems in a more professional way.

Hotel Avalon on 13 Janvara street:
Very interesting inner architecture: open-space lobby with glass elevator zooming up and down.Our room was very clean and comfy, and with the carpet and double glazing it was totally sound proof, despite the fact the room was at the busy street side.
The location is great too, only a few minutes' walkig from the very heart of the city.
and with the 22(a) bus from the airport stopping a few metres from the entrance. the railway station a bit further on.
We hadn't expected too much from dinner , at a 10€ extra...Still, it was a nice surprise.
There were two types of menus:the first with starters and main course, the second day with main course and dessert, and with 3 or 4 choices per course.The dishes may not be affluent,but they were tasty and with an eye for detail what the decoration is concerned. There was also a veggy dish.
The terrace on the 6th floor had a nice view and was quite cosy.
So, yes, we certainly recommend this hotel and if ever we visit Riga gain, we know which hotel to pick!
