    Exceptional

    Excellent location, very clean rooms and good buffet breakfast. Location in the old town, near the shopping center and close to the railway station. The hotel and the rooms were quiet, beds were comfortable and the room was cleaned and towels changed daily. Breakfast was served in a buffet (incl. Coffee, tea, juice, eggs, bacon, potatoes, yogurt, toast, cheese, ham etc.). Would definitely stay there again!

    Only thing that bothered a bit was the temperature of the room, there was no air conditioning so the room was quite hot and unventilated. Surely opening the windows helped but in the street side of the hotel some of the noise from the opposite club could then bother one's sleep. Other than that, a perfect hotel!

    Very good

    Location was very convenient on edge of Old Town. Hotel welcoming , clean and spacious. Room spacious and beds very comfortable, good value centrally located hotel..hope to stay there again. Excellent shopping centre in the street, main market across the main road and restaurants and sights all in walking distance

    We took the bus from the airport and then the underpass to cross the road...on exiting the underpass its offputting to face the hoarding at the start of the street ...and this would put people off this hotel....which is a shame. It might be worth doing soemthing to create a better first impression in the street.

    The Hotel is nice. Very comfortable for the visitors who come to Ryga by train. Hotel is very close. As the old town of Ryga too. Breakfast is with portions with the possibility to choose a meal from the brakfast menu. We stayed there for one night in triple room. It was nice, tidy and silent. Only one detail - we payed for the triple room 49 LVL - that is why pprice was reasonable for the service we got.

    Maybe nex time I would choose a hotel not by the railway station because of the atmosphere in the street.

    Superb

    A very neat hotel. Well located for those who are travelling by bus, train or airplane. Shopping and old-town are not far either. A very good price/quality ratio.

    The only thing I didn't like was the fact that the boiled eggs in the breakfast menu set were ice-cold, and judging by the taste, were kept in the fridge for 3-4 days prior to serving. Unfortunately I was in a hurry to the airport, and since it's not a buffet breakfast but served individually by a la carte sets, I didn't have time to wait for replacing the cold eggs with any 'hotter' food. But it was a minor detail, of course. In general, this hotel is lovely.

    Good

    i liked the staff, it's accessability to the centre, railway and buses.

    i did not like the unclean wallpaper and the noises from the room above in the middle of the night which are hard to describe, like a small animal running to and fro.i expect there is an explanation.

    During breakfast to room was too full. The girl who served forgot many things and we had to ask for the juice, coffee and fruits.

    A grest little hotel in Riga, with helpful staff, whose knowledge of Riga is 1st class with everything within a walking distance of the hotel. The wifi internet did not connect on one day but was fixed the next day. There are plenty of places to eat and drink nearby and the hotel in handy for the airport bus service which is only a two minute walk, In all a great hotl

    A pity the hotel does not have a bar, but you can buy beer and juice from reception and the rooms have a mini bar

    Good

    Very close to the train and bus station, and to the city center too. Very good for visiting the city. The room is big enough, and the bathroom too. The reception is always open and the staff friendly. There's a night guardian too.

    It was impossible using the wi fi. The breakfast is not bouffet, so if you are in a hurry you have to wait for the waitress and it's a waste of time. My room was on the ground floor and it was sometimes noisy. Also I had to keep the courtains closed all the time because the windows are on eye level and everybody who walks on the street can look inside.
