We stayed at this hotel for a night only, it was more or less an "accident" as we had to stay over night in Riga (even though planned differently) and we were just transferred here from overbooked Albert Hotel. (Finding us another hotel took ages, by the way, and only after insisting on a taxi they agreed to pay it...

Clean Rooms, nice minibar and the bar on the ground floor. Superb breakfast. Was surprised that almost all guests were German. Only minus, the shower was...

Seems like hotel aimed at bus tours, and was crowded at breakfast and check in / out when elevator can be difficult. Recommend pay the difference for a larger room, which was quiet and had small balcony and mini bar. Staff OK and English v good.

Very nice hotel located on a nice quite street still in the Riga old town. Very nice buffte breakfast, wide selection of food and drinks. Room was very small and beds very narrow. The staff could be more helpful and more familiar with hotel business.

I lost a gold ring and I didn't notice until I was in the bus to Tallinn. The staff took the trouble to ring my home in London the same day, and tell my family they had found a ring in my room and they would be sending it shortly. It arrived a few days ago. Just for that I...

I'm afraid I can't share the enthusiasm of some other recent reviewers for this hotel. True, its location, a restored house at the edge of the old town, is good and strategic. Room 506 provides a nice glimpse of the market buildings, and is quite light. However, even though I had the luxury of single occupancy of a double room,...

This is an older hotel that has no real view, but is conveniently located near all the sights. This hotel is also close to the train depot and bus depot. It has all the standard travel amenities (wi-fi, etc). The room was good, and the hotel staff were excellent. The breakfast buffet was plentiful. Dinner was available, but you would...
