Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fantastic hotel, great location. Staff were very helpful. Rooms have brilliant facilities, usb charge points, hair driers, mini bar, safe, bath and shower. We didn't have an iron but you could probably get one from reception (had that many layers on I wasn't worried about a few creases) Spa facilities were included used them a few times, pool, 2 x saunas, 2 x steam room and a heated tiled bed that is tremendous. Hotel is situated just across a little park to the old town. If you get the 22 bus from the air port its a 15 minute walk from the autoosta stop. Would definitely recommend. Breakfast has a good selection, couldn't fault it

Nice interior, good breakfast full of choices and sparkling wine every morning. Waitress at breakfast are a bit too “aggressive” picking up plates and cups almost from the hands. That young male receptionist was one of the worst one ever met. He hardly had any eye contact and we didn’t felt ourselves welcome at all. The first impression can be done only once…

The hotel is excellent, with good sized modern and stylish rooms. The breakfast had a great selection and the staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is in great location on the park just across from the old town, central to explore Riga which is a wonderful city. Book here and you won’t be disappointed!

The hotel is beautifully decorated and on our first trip to Riga was a perfect place to stay and see the equally beautiful city. 2 small things: a 4/5 star could have provide biscuits and/or fresh milk in room and the advertised “late check out” seems to be rarely available. Overall a lovely place

Just back from two nights in Riga for a friend’s wedding. So glad we booked this hotel. Booked in efficiently by a charming trainee, then shown to a fabulous room. Really stylish and well equipped. We ate in Snob, with very little notice they found us a good table, and the food was really excellent. We plan to stay here again, for 10 nights, early next summer. Thank you to the team there.

We had the Grand Suite for a bachelorette event on 13th of August, 2023, but the service was truly a disappointment. It all started when at arrival the room was not ready and they mixed up the time of arrival with the time I requested an ice bucket to be brought to the room. Further, I requested a plate to put some snack on but the receptionist confused it with antipasti and after not clarifying this in 2minutes said that this could not be cancelled. The personnel of the hotel is truly a disaster. not client oriented at all! when asked to fix this the guy starts coming at us not in any way in friendly matter that this was our request (when we clearly did not request it). After almost an hour of wait the room was cleaned. I requested a compensation for all this misunderstanding and the receptionist personally came to the Suite and offered a 10% discount for the whole dinner at their restaurant. When we finished the dinner and the bill arrived we were surprised of the fact that no discount was added, the waiter said that there was no information available to him of any discount and that the bill he issued could not be cancelled (at this point we felt that we are treated as complete idiots) however we tried to make an effort and help him solve this whole thing. He tried to offer us a bottle of Prosecco which we kindly refused and basically accepted some cocktails which we did not want. The cherry at the top of this whole stay was when we went out in the evening and asked to send someone to our room to clean the glass from the bathroom floor which was accidentally dropped and the receptionist offered us help in 9am next day…. A 5 star hotel they say… and there were personnel in the hotel… so with galas on the floor of Grand Suit we stayed the night :) When explaining the situation in the morning at the check out and how disappointed we were, the reception said that they understand us and this is unacceptable and they will clarify and call me to resolve this, as we could predict, no form of justification was offered at all…Well, two weeks later and no call whatsoever, should have expected this…

Stayed at the junior suite, and was amazed by the size of it, excellent for the price point. Bathroom had bath and shower. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Hotel is located just a small park across from the old town, very easy to access just walking. Breakfast had multiple options, with even sparkling wine offered. Only had cocktails and desert at hotel restaurant, both were very well made and tasty. Be aware that hotel does not have dedicated parking, but quite affordable underground parking can be found about 500m away. 3x days was 36€. Hotel staff do offer valet service for an extra cost. Spa is quite small and limited, but a good extra for a hotel to have. Enjoyed after a hot day on the town.
