The hotel is about 15 minutes by bus (22) from the airport, one stop past the huge Spice shopping and entertainment complex. The room I stayed in was spacious, with all amenities, including an iron/board, kettle (with tea.coffee) and all bathroom supplies. The bed was comfortable and very long. The only negative point about the room was that it was...

Had a business trip and selected this hotel for a stay. Cozy rooms, high quality services, tasty dishes for breakfast. And those elephants all around hotel...My experience of being here is very good, so I'm sure that my next trip to riga will be finished at the same place : Rixwell Elefant Hotel.

The hotel is very modern, stylish and nicely furnitured. Breakfast was very good! We had the room by the street, if you prefer to sleep well remember to bring your earplugs, as you can also hear everything from your neighbor room. Rooms were very clean and super nice, i really liked the pillows. The service was super! The location is...

We visit Riga twice a year, and we've stayed at the Elephant for the fourth time running (if I remember rightly). We actually chose Elephant for its lovely decor for the first time, but then got so attached to it that we keep coming back. Each visit is a joy - the staff are very friendly and helpful, the rooms...

Have staid here several times before, but it seems to have lost its direction. In particular breakfasts (included in your room rate - no option) are a disaster during the weekend.

Very nice hotel outside Riga inner city, by a big road. Rooms tidy and bright. Beds very comfortable, the bathroom a little outdated maybe. Or it didn't hold the high standard as the rest of the room. Big windows, we had a view towards the street, but heard no traffic noise. Breakfast was good, different breads, eggs in different forms,...

Location is great. Close to Airport and short driving distance across the bridge into the city centre. If you are there for businnes, plan your time to get into city well ahead as the traffic gets pretty heavy. Hotel itself is nice and clean and most important that it was quiet, and the hotel is at the road side. If...
