Well that’s what we are told is important and the Avalon has got it in spades!
Close to bus links to/from the airport ( bus no 22), the retrun journey starts right outside the hotel!
The hotel backs right onto the old town and the front over looks central market, close to train station, couldn’t be better.
The hotel itself, well, its an hotel and it does that job very very well, principally because of the attitude of the staff , first class all the way.
Whoever does the training and recruitment programme really knows their stuff ,the staff I found nothing less than top class.
The building itself, again its the atrium, almost worth the admission on its own. Rooms I found clean to a high standard with hotel services very much on the ball.
Wonderful February break in Riga , ( walking on the Baltic up at Majori was something) and the Avalon provided the best base a first or second time visitor could ask for
