Visited this hotel last year with our team from work. Overall, this was a good-quality hotel with comfortable rooms, meeting room facilities and a good location for exploring the Riga town by foot. Opposite the hotel, you can find a huge marketplace area that offers everything for everyone. After a few block's walk, you will reach the riverside from which it's easy to take boat tour on the river (or even up to Jurmala for a day). The breakfast buffet in Avalon was of above average; not the best or the most versatile I've been to, but have no complaints.
