We were very pleased to have very nice service. Good location, friendly staff, clean and nicely decorated rooms. Thank you very much.
Breakfast was nice and delicious, staff was very helpful.
It seems to us that the hotel should be rated higher.

Jelgava... well, unless on business, the likeliness of ending up here is thin. The town is not really as historical as for example Riga. Straight an wide streets, pretty parks and churches, and the river. Hotel Jelgava is right where the main street crosses the river, and if you happen to be on the noisier side, the views are nice, even in a damp and grey November. The hotel looks like somewhere in the esrly 19th century, but renovated quite recently, and really impossible to guess the age of it. The entrance lobby with the reception looks very welcoming, and the check-in goes swiftly - and yes, they speak very good English. My room was a single on the third floor, small but big enough. Cozy, perfect bed a small desk where I just about got space for the laptop. No minibar, but a small fridge, small and functional bath room. So, all in all, no frills but a very good two night den for overnight. The breakfast is a continental with some Latvian twist, very nice. So, would I recommend? Well, if you for some reason end up in Jelgava, yes definitely, but having the choice, I might prefer Riga?

Well appointed hotel, nicely decorated rooms, huge bath with water jets. The breakfast was an excellent spread of hot & cold food. Would recommend if in the area. Free car parking to the rear of the hotel.

The hotel is in a good location for tourist sites and activities. It has plenty of free parking.

Our room (apparently a standard double) was pretty small and cramped.It was in an inside corner of the hotel at the rear. When the window was open there was significant noise from extractor fans / air con units.

The staff we met were pretty neutral, neither helpful nor unhelpful - more disinterested, really.

The breakfast is a real let-down. The selection is poor, the supply of plates is erratic (we were lucky and got some, other guests just after us had to wait quite a while for plates to be brught from the kitchen), food items that run out are not replenished quickly. On the days that we were there the room had a lot of flies in it, crawling over the exposed fruit.

After a bad experience in another guesthouse, I went to Hotel Jelgava for booking a room. Unfortunately, it did not have any room available. Nonetheless, the receptionist was really kind to me because she contacted other city's hotels and also gave me a list of Riga's hotels in order to I did not sleep on the street. Due to all of the above, I publicly thank Hotel Jelgava for given help, which was key to solving my problem.
