First impressions of this hotel were that it was a little dated. However, the reception staff were very friendly ans spoke excellent English. Our room was on the second floor and very convenient for the lift. There was a modern and spotlessly clean en-suite bathroom and the bed was comfortable. Lighting was also good, and I was impressed that there...

Had a good three night stay while on a visit to Riga. Very friendly staff, clean and pleasant surroundings with a nice choice for breakfast. We had tea making facilities in the room, which was lacking when Prague, fairly close to the centre, so a nice walk.

This hotel was about half an hours walk from the city centre but a cheap and efficient trolly bus (number 22) could be caught from just around the courner. (Tickets can be purchased from the kiosks. 24hours travel =5 euro's) The Rixwell Gertrude was good for the price we paid, the room we had was spacious and the beds comfortable....

This hotel is well-placed for walking to most of Riga's major attractions. A Rimi supermarket for groceries and a Neversan shop for buying transport tickets are about 5 mins walk if you turn left when exiting. Breakfast was a huge selection and sometimes there's champagne on offer as part of the buffet ( but only one bottle, so you have...

This was a great value hotel for a short city break but the location is a bit too far from the centre, especially for the walk back after a long day's sightseeing. There is a trolley bus stop outside but that only runs once an hour most times. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the breakfast buffet was good...

Well worth a visit. Hotel is wonderful. Beds are comfortable, rooms are quiet, breakfasts have everything you can imagine, plus eat as much as you want so fill yourselves up for a whole day of sight seeing. The staff were all pleasant and spoke English fluently. Perfect location for slightly out of the city base so the traffic wasn't noisy...
