Lots of elephant statues including one the size of a small bus in the restaurant area this modern hotel is about a 15-20 minute ride on the bus from right outside into Riga Old town. Helpful staff and a good selection breakfast buffet as well as a good choice of food in the evening. Very reasonably priced too
