Location is good, breakfast was really nice: pancakes with cheese and pancakes with banana were one of my favourites. Rooms are quite average on my opinion. Unfortunately our night was ruined by people next door who were like reallly loud and noisy. They listened music at night and started again about 5 a.m. We called to the reception and then... More

The hotel was average in my opinion. The room was very simple but not new so the bathroom was a bit old fashioned but clean. The bed was comfortable and the room was quite even though you could hear the people in the hallway. The staff was nice and helpful. The breakfast is very good and serves a lot of... More

We found this hotel to be really great for our needs. Brilliant location. We had a junior suite, which had everything you could want. We found breakfast really good for a buffet. I have notice people saying different, but we could not fault it.

This place is very central to Old Riga, to the bus station and the fantastic food market. It is also close to restaurants and bars, plenty of offers just around the corner. However, it was surprisingly quiet at night compared to other hotels in the old town. Breakfast was OK, served in an old cellar vault. The rooms were on... More

Lovely place to stay! Highly recommended! I booked simple room for one night. It's says no window in it. After arriving I was so surprised how cozy and quite the room is and actually there is a window which is looking out to court yard.

Avoid this place. There's better places in Riga. We were visiting Riga on Saturday. Booked double room with quinn bed. Room was so small that the bed barely fit in. Girl at the reception was pleasant but the porter guy was terribly rude. We felt uncomfortable walking past reception. Breakfast very basic. Three types pancakes and hot dog sausages. Once... More

My husband and I stayed here from 10th-13th of September and we weren't disappointed. I'd read that it was dated and perhaps it is but it added to its charm. It's in a great location, very close to the train station and the market and right on the edge of the old town. Breakfast was fine but the coffee is... More

I got the double room with queen bed. The price was great. After the long flight, I dreamed jump to bed and get up just before checking out at the hotel.

Nice and clean, small hotel at the outskirts of medieval city. Short walk and good connections to everywhere. Our room was spacious and it had modern bathroom. The reason I didn't give 5/5 is breakfast. It was little bit disappointment.
