On one of our many visits to Riga we opted for the Avalon based on price and the reviews on Trip Advisor..On arrival check in was swift and we received dinner vouchers for the six nights. Our room however reeked of smoke, despite our requesting a non smoking room. Returning to reception from floor 7 the receptionist was apologetic assuring us the room was non smoking. I pointed out that there was an ashtray in the room, the response was all rooms have ashtrays.
Strange it may seem, the receptionist explained th hotel was full, but they would upgrade us free of charge to a junior suite,
The suite was comfortable, the breakfast was sufficient quite a few choices of hot and cold Buffet We tried the evening meal this was adequate and well cooked and if you opt not to eat you get two free drinks so no complaints there.
As we travel regularly to Rga we would certainly stay at the Avalon again, after all it s only a five minute walk to Domini Carnes

We didn't really choose this hotel as it came with a Groupon deal, but I'd definitely recommend it. The location is great - just over the road from the bus station (it costs less than £1 for the 30 min bus journey from the airport on number 22), right opposite the amazing central market and just on the edge of the old town. Pretty much everything is within walking distance.

The reception staff all had good english and were exceptionally helpful, always willing to scribble tips and directions on an endless supply of free maps. The hotel is modern and feels stylish, room was clean, spacious and well fitted out. Although it's on a main road the windows are very soundproof. Breakfast was good with lots of choice (pancakes especially recommended), though the hot plates didn't keep everything very hot.

There was a kettle in the room but coffee and tea bags were chargeable so take your own. Also, there's a glass elevator and no (accessible non-fire escape) stairs, so avoid if you have vertigo!

Room Tip: Most rooms are on the south side overlooking the road and central market. There are are few on the north side overlooking the old town - a better view and probably quieter, especially if it's hot & you need to open the window.

Booked this hotel for me and my friend's trip to Riga for a weekend. It did not disappoint. Location was ideal, very close to old town but far enough away from all the action so our sleep was not disturbed. Rooms were of a good standard and staff were polite and helpful in the traditional serious Baltic way! The only criticism was the food. We tried an evening meal in the restuarant one night and although the price was inexpensive, the food itself was bland and portions very small. Lesson learned was to find a decent local restaurant for the other nights. Cleanliness was exceptional as it was in every establishment in the whole city. Puts the UK to shame! Would recommend this accommodation to other travellers. Suitable for both adult parties and families.

My first trip to Latvia, so I had no idea what to expect.
I was surprised when I checked in that my room rate included a free evening meal. Later that evening, you do discover that the menu is VERY limited. Ask for the special menu, not the full menu which I initially had, thinking I was in for a right treat!
But as the hotel is such a good location, you would be a fool to spend every evening in that restaurant anyway. Riga is an amazing city to just wonder around in, so make the most of it.

The room was quite large, overlooking the road and canal. Noise wasn't an issue for me, so I had a comfortable nights sleep every night.

The reception staff all spoke very good English, and were very polite and helpful....even for things like asking for directions etc.

we stayed at the avalon (me & the wife) for three nights and could'nt fault it. booked it through booking.com and it was a very good price including a 2 course meal each for 1 night. when we checked in we was given tokens for all three nights,so we thought see how it goes knowing what hotel food is like. we were pleasantly surprised as the food was quite decent and ate at the hotel all 3 nights. the breakfast is good too with a good choice of decent food too. we found all the staff everywhere to be helpful & friendly with good english spoken,but that was generally the case around riga. the rooms are comfy and clean,our bathroom could have done with being a little bigger around the sink but was'nt really a problem(thats my only whinge). location wise you could;nt ask for better its very near the train & bus station so no matter how you travel its easy,there is a bus from the airport every half hour to the bus station. just walk around to the back of the hotel and you are in the old town for the tourist attractions and a good selection of bars and restaraunts. i would reccomend to anybody to stay here.
