The hotel has a great location, bus stop is nearby and it takes about 10 minutes to get to the city. Several supermarkets nearby. Stayed at the Suite and it was really spacious with kitchenettes. Staff's English wasn't good, but they managed to help us when we needed. There was no elevator so we had to walk to the 4th... More

I spent 3 nights there. Good point is that room is clean and big enough. When it comes to negative points, wifi is not working( I asked a staff, but they didn't even try to fix the problem), no hot water in the shower and poor breakfast. If I come to Riga someday again, I will chose another hotel.

Good and helpful reception staff, simple but good breakfast, nice hotel newly refurbished. On the other hand there was no air con or fan (even if on the hotel description it says it is provided), our room was on a noisy street, there was a very poor WIFI connection in the room, the toilet wasn't completely flushed when we first...

The bathroom is dirty, with rust and someone's hair on the wall. The room is dusty, the furniture old fashioned. It's more like a hostel, not a hotel. Verry budget. Far from the centre, 40 minutes on foot. The personnel is helpful

The room was wide and clean; just basic furniture. The internet connection was bad. Please note that if you get there early in the morning or late in the evening - the reception des is closed, so you might need to stay in front of the hotel and wait.

For 25 Euro you're not going to get much. I wasn't expecting much and was just glad of somewhere to stay after driving from Gdansk to Riga and having driven around looking for somewhere to stay and saw this place. It was December 22 and 10pm - and hardly high season. I think the guy on reception was a family... More

I do not know what to start with: 1) more than half hour waiting to go to shower just because it takes this time to get almost warm water (in Spartan terms) out of tap 2) calling one cheap piece of soap proudly "providing the guest with toiletries" 3) awful, small and really cheaply made breakfast provided with speed of...

I've stayed in bad hotells before, but this is the worst I've happend uppon in a long time. The only reason we stayed here was because we bought an hotell + airplane deal.
