We have just returned from a 3 night stay in the hotel that was part of a package booked through Travelinteraction at an unbelievably low price that was too good to ignore. I have to admit we feared the worse, however, the hotel exceeded our expectations and the travel in and out to Riga Old Town was part of the...

We booked three nights here. It's in a somewhat dismal area but it's only five minutes and a €7.50 taxi ride away from the airport. You can get into Riga by bus cheaply, but taxis back after midnight from the tourist areas are very expensive. The hotel has a small reception, a bar with reasonable prices and a dining room...

Very good room, and bathroom well - appointed. Snow outside, but we had to turn the heating down! Good to have a kettle available, and tea/coffee supplies replenished every day. Very helpful staff - when they ran out of croissants at breakfast time we were given cheesecake when we complained. The evening meal was first-class, beautifully cooked and presented. The...

Superb hotel to stay at right by the airport. It's very very well priced with lovely rooms and very comfortable beds. Breakfast is really nice with a glass of champagne too. Rooms are very clean and tidy and you have access to a spa if wanted. There is a gym but with a night stay we had I never visited...

My wife and I stayed at this hotel when we came to Riga for a long weekend away. We were pleasantly surprised when we got to this comfortable and modern hotel where we made the booking. It was also a very simple bus ride from the airport (the 22 bus) that drops you basically straight to the hotel. There is...

We liked this hotel. We took a bit better room class and it was 150 % worth our money. Breakfast was very good, but unfortunately many items run out long before the breakfast time ended. It is quite some way from here to the city center, but luckily taxis are quite inexpensive here.

The staff at reception was very cold through the whole time of my stay. I had paid for a room with a sofa, however, on my arrival I was given a standard room. After I complained that this is not the room I have booked, I was offered a slightly larger room but still with no sofa, with two single...

I often stay in this hotel. I like that hotel is located not far from the airport and city centre. Not far from the hotel is big shopping centre "Spice". The staff is friendly, obliging and helpful. Rooms were warm, very clean, modern and nicely decorated. Free Wi-Fi, air-conditioning, comfortable work desk, TV, private bathroom with bath/ shower and hairdryer....

We got nice rooms at the hotel, and the service at the desk was super friendly and professional. The hotel is located just close enough to the airport (a ~10 minutes / ~10 EURO drive) and to the city (same), and is perfect for those who arrive for a short term visit to Riga. There is a great shopping mall...

Stayed here the night before we needed to catch an early morning flight. Staff and restraunt were great. $10 taxi ride to airport and take away breakfast was provided free of charge. If looking for a place to stay close to the airport this is it.
