“Holidays in Riga”
Reviewed 25 May 2013

The hotel is ok but i can't say it is 4star level. The breakfast was scanty, there was no kettle and tee in the room, and no sponge for shoes. But the location of the hotel is very convenient, there is free wi-fi on the hotel's territory. Room was very clean.

I liked this hotel... the location is excellent.... closed to the bus station and right next to the old city... very clean and comfort...staff very helpful and the restaurant very good with good prices... don't try the pasta there....get something else...:)
I just wander why they always give you rooms with no view every time you book through the internet...:(

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.

I stayed there one night. Rooms are modern and clean. Very professional and frendly staff. BREAKFAST ITS SO DELICIOUS. You can choose what you would like to eat. I would stay here again. In my opinion Hotel Avalon is the best hotel in Riga for value and price.

Good location with nice rooms, the one one the 4th floor had stairs, don't know if that's the reason you could hear the neighbors too well...
Other thing, it was wintertime, and the rooms had close to no heating.
Breakfast was very good.

I stayed in Avalon during 11-13/3 2012, due to recommendation of our business partner and due to positive reviews on Tripadvisor.
I agree that the reception is very professional and service-minded. The location of the hotel is also fine. The building with the open atrium in the middle makes the noice spread to the rooms. If you need silence to be able to sleep, you can forget it. The walls are thin and not isolated against the noice, so you can hear television and normal conversations through the walls, as if it was in the same room you are sleeping in.
And besides the atrium building, that amplifies the noice from the restaurant and the bar on the ground floor.
The breakfast was uneatable - I would not eat the salami that was getting grey in colour, the sausages that were certainly warmed up several time, leaving a taste of rubber in the mouth.
The sallads were far from fresh, the cheese was dry. Good thing: I ordered a fresh omellete, which is free of charge, and the omellete was tasty.
In the reception there was a diploma of Best hotel of Trip advisor 2013. How can it be the best hotel of 2013 when 2013 has bearly started?
Next time I would choose another hotel. No superior reviews here, and definitely NOT 5 star. Maybe the hotel got so much exaggerated good reviews that they got lazy and think that the guest would settle for an uneatable breakfast???
The price of the room is of course good, but eat the breakfast elsewhere.
Take taxi Baltic Taxi, buy vouchers already on the airport for 10 Lats each way, and avoid stress of being cheated by taxi drivers when going back and forth to the airport.

Room Tip: High floors, rooms that do not have windows to the street and that are as far away from the noisy gr...
