I booked this hotel because it is near Riga airport. I was pretty amazed at the price I paid but even more surprised when I got to the hotel. My room was huge, nicely decorated, fully equipped and very modern. Bathrobes, sleepers, amenities, coffee maker. Bed linen was very good. The room was very quiet and everything was very clean....

Hotel is small but confortable with great service. Resturant has great food and open late. A good breakfast is included. Hotel is only a short cab ride from the airport. The tub in the bathroom is a nice addition which we enjoyed.

Very much out of the centre with not much of interest nearby. There is a bus stop 2 minutes away that will drop you in the centre and is also on the airport transfer route (on a main road) so easy enough to find. Rooms are modern and I would think recently updated with all mod cons. Very good value...

Try and take the penthouse suite which is on two floors. Prices vary depending on season, weekend, weekday and occupancy. Second time penthouse suite was not available and we got a standard room costing the same price, around EUR 100. Hotel is close to the Spice shopping center. Hotel faces a busy street.

Stayed her before Christmas on a cheap deal for 3 nights with my wife and daughter. It is a bright clean and smart hotel on a main road half way between the airport and the city centre. Staff were more cool than friendly (but that seems to be normal in Riga) but efficient enough, our room was clean and comfortable....

The hotel was everything we needed a hotel to be. A superbly comfortable bed, plenty of choice at breakfast, modern and stylish, pleasant staff, quiet and warm rooms. The Elefant Hotel is slightly out of the centre by a 5 or 6 Euro taxi ride or a 2 Euro bus ride. Had we stayed in a town centre based hotel...
