Reviewed 13 August 2014

In the historic district near the riverfront, this hotel offers great location.
Nearby is St.Peters Church and beautiful House, Guild of the Blackheads.
Our double room included a queen bed, writing desk & chairs, minibar, coffee/tea maker and safe. A/C and free Wi-Fi was good. The ironing facilities, was a surprise. A good size bathroom with all the amenities. Buffet breakfast and dinner was included in the price, quite reasonable.
Helpful and knowledgeable staff. Overall, a good value.

We stayed at Hotel Avalon for a week and found our stay very comfortable. The hotel is in a great location and close to the old city. Reception staff is extremely helpful and they are also fluent in English. Double rooms are a decent size and we were very happy with our room at the end of the corridor. There is a big selection at breakfast and caters for all tastes. We had a special deal that included supper and we used our dinner tickets on 2 occasions. Although value for money, this special menu did not have a great selection and I also got the feeling it was not favoured by the attending dining room staff as they were not over eager to serve us. Next time I would not go for this option that includes dinner. The bar staff on duty is really helpful and efficient.

Good hotel, at the edge of the old town, not far from coach (and train) station. Bus stop in front of the hotel. Excellent the outwards soundproofing. Good the breakfast. Excellent value for money (….but just SOMETIMES!!!!!)

Very close to the city center where you can walk the cobble stone streets and seeing the buildings, watch the people and enjoying the sights. Staff was friendly, rooms large enough with ample supply of needed items.

First of all there is notthing closer to the BUs station than this hotel, and at the same time it is just by the historical city centre, so practically everything is in a walking distance.
We arrived at 7 am and the good thing that we were able to enjoy the rich buffet breakfast for only 10 Euros, comparing for minimum 25 Euros in Holliday Inn chain.
The staff was extremely freindly and helpfull. The rooms are pretty well and equiped as per 4 star hotel should be.
I would definitely come back here.

Kind personnel, second time I have been here, and I cannot complain about the service. Cannot find a reason not going here when I will be in Riga. Close to the centre, easy access to the old town. Good choice in breakfast.
