“Not bad but some drawbacks”
Reviewed 26 July 2010

The hotel is situated in a nice neighborhood in the western part of Ventspils - the rooms lay above the 'Juras Brize' restaurant (where you can take breakfast, but it's not included in the hotel rate) . Since there have been many guests of the restaurant sitting outside in the evening and since the main road directly passes the hotel, we experienced quite a lot of noise in our colourful and spacious room. Also, there is no airconditioning system.

I was pleasantly surprised by Juras Brize. Spotlessly clean, friendly and helpful staff who all spoke excellent English and a decent location a 10 minute walk from Ventspils' lovely Blue Flag beach.
Our group included both my young son and his grandparents, all of whom enjoyed the stay. We took the family room and my parents took the studio, both of which were immaculately cleaned every day. Well worth the slightly higher rate for the extra space.
The restaurant is exceptional value with good food and large portions - as the number of locals (and people staying elsewhere) who come here to eat testifies. After the high prices of Riga, the ability to feed five people, including a couple of drinks, for less than 20 lats is terriffic.
The location is a couple of kilometres away from the small old town but great for families. Directly across the road is the free "Children's World" play park with slides, climbing frames etc designed for different age groups. Ideal for getting the kids tired for a good night's sleep. Within a 10 minute walk is the beach and another super park featuring a jungle trail and a miniature railway at weekends. Ventspils may not be the most obvious holiday destination but is the tidiest town in Latvia and well worth a couple of days' stay.

We stayed at the Juras Brize for one night during our tour of Latvia. Contact was very efficient per e-mail. The hotel is located in a very quiet residential area, across the street is hospital. The city center can be reached on foot in about 20 minutes. The staff at the Hotel was quite friendly, something you don't often encounter in Latvia. We booked the Family Room and a Studio Suite. The Suite is one HUGE room with 2 single beds and a pull-out couch and the Family Room is actually a small apartment with separate livingroom and bedroom. A nice touch are the tea and coffee making facilities in both rooms. Both rooms come equipped with Shower and Toilet (no Bathtubs) and Sat-TV (with about 500 foreign channels - even from Afghanistan and Iraq!!). Breakfast is not included in the rates, but they have a nice selection to choose from in the Restaurant / Bistro attached to the Hotel and its really cheap (I paid 1 LVL 90 for a Farmers Breakfast). There is a small guarded parking lot in the back.

Ventspils is really worth a visit, I have seldom seen a cleaner city anywhere in the world including Switzerland (I am Swiss); and the Juras Brize is the perfect venue to spend a couple of nights.
