We took the junior suite which I thought was rather small but the amenities were generous. We felt pampered in every way. They gave us free dinner vouchers which we exchanged for lunch boxes when we were unable to have the dinners. On the last night we finally had a taste of the dinner and it was surprisngly gourmet style!

Excellent location. Opposite train and bus station. Practically in the Old City. Opposite to big supermarket and Central food market (must visit). Standard rooms are relatively small, but include all necessary staff. Very comfortable bed and pillows. Linen are very good. Clean. Bathroom is small, bathtub is very high, relatively dangerous to get in and out, especially for senior people....

The location, staff, cleanliness and overall look and comfort of this hotel are the reasons why I believe it deserves five stars. Breakfast is extensive and delicious, with an excellent hot and cold buffet section. We stayed in a superior twin room. The room was very very comfortable, lots of space and the bathroom was very chic. We were on...

Invited by friends, the hotel does not look very nice from the outside, but when you get in, the nice big lobby is setting the good mood. The rooms are very clean, big bathtub with real hot water is what we like. A surprise is the good quality of service and food in the restaurant! Continental breakfast also very good.

A unique and very well presented hotel located on the outskirts of historic Old Riga town. Sited opposite and barely two minutes walk from Riga central bus station and rail links. A taxi from Riga International Airport (RIX) should cost around 15 Euros (Latvia moved to the Euro as their currency in 2014), however several bus routes link the airport...

Weekend break to explore Riga - hotel was a few minutes walk from both the old town, and zeppelin hangers so we had easy access to all the sights and restaurants. The staff were friendly and helpful.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The room was clean, sanatary facilities good en the shower/bath combination easy to have. The hotel is close to a big shopping centre and a daily market which is filled with stands selling fish, fruit, veggies and chocolates among many other things. For the smokers, they have an inside smoke area which is actually...

We booked a suite for two nights. It was my birthday present and I was really waiting for the holiday. When we arrived we were told that the previous guests had destroyed the suite and all the other suites were already booked. We were told that the bed of our suite was broken. Then we were offered a superior room...

Our two-night-stay was pleasant. We were satisfied with spacious room on 7th floor, huge bed and cleanliness. The breakfast was quite ordinary but very filling. The location is great: all the main attractions are in a walking distance. If you take bus 22 from the airport the "Autoosta" bus stop locates almost in front of the hotel.
