Reviewed 21 October 2011

Stayed here for 5 nights in October. Great location minutes from winding streets of old town. Airport bus will drop you off across the road at the Stockman department store-cross by underpass and walk back . Bus for the airport leaves from the stop outside hotel.0.70L one way. Journey takes about 30 mins.

Very comfortable rooms of a decent size, Superb breakfast with a fabulous choice was included in the price.Helpful staff on reception.

Would deffinately stay here again.

The Avalon is easy to get to from Riga airport. Use the Number 22 bus from outside the airport, it costs 0.70 lats for a single journey. The bus had an LED display inside which shows the next stop - get off at 'stockmann'. The journey takes around 30-40mins.

When we arrived at the hotel we were told there was a problem with our booking and we would have to move to a different hotel. Apparently the booking information hadn't reached the hotel through the Internet booking agency we used. However, we stood our ground and a room was found. The couple checking in after us had the same problem, they had used a different booking agency from us but were given the same reason. They did have to move hotels and were told by the new hotel that it happens all the time.

The room was clean and a decent size. There are no tea/coffee making facilities in the rooms.

The buffet breakfast provided lots of choice and is excellent value.

The old town is easily accessed and walking back to the hotel at night felt safe enough.

There is free wi-fi all over the hotel.

Excellent location for exploring, very close to airport bus connection (cost 5 Lats- £6.50). Good quality rooms and service, with an exceptional breakfast choice served from 7 til 11 a.m.

Room Tip: Room 210, and, presumably 310,410,510,610 and 710

Good hotel, very convenient location – on the edge of beautiful Old Town and some 5 min walk from Riga central train and bus stations. Rooms are nice and well equipped. Sound proof windows protect from any noise on nearby busy street . We had nice dinner at hotel’s restaurant at very modest prices. Next time in Riga will definitely stay at this hotel again.

The location of the hotel is very good as the airport bus stop is about 3 mins walking distance. The central station is also close by while the hotel is just at the edge of the old town.

We loved our stay here....clean and modern.....it was very convenient to the bus station and train transportation and we could walk to all the major sites. Breakfast was excellent and our room was pleasant and large. On our trip we stayed in 9 hotels and this was one of the top two.

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.
