Situated on the edge of the old town this hotel is in a great location for several reasons. You can take the no. 22 bus from Riga airport and it stops just a minute away (you pass the hotel on the left just before you need to get off the bus). The bus stop for the return to the airport is right outside the hotel. The hotel is a 5-10 min walk to the railway station, bus station, the market and the cinema and of course all the attractions of the old town. The hotel was very clean and well sound-proofed and there's free WiFi in the room. For English speakers there were only two TV channels - CNN and VH1. We had the deal of free dinner as well as breakfast. The only downside was that we had to choose from the chef's 2 course special and it was the same menu every night with one starter to choose from - fish soup - and 3 mains. The food was good but as we were there for five nights we chose to eat out a few times - Province and Rooster restaurants recommended for great Latvian food. Breakfast was pancakes/porridge, sausages/bacon and omelette/chips in the hot section and cereal, ham, cheese, Baltic herrings etc in the cold. No fresh juice but it was all good. Reception was very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again.
