Stayed here on a trip to Riga with friends. There were 9 of us and the staff were more than helpful to show us where to eat and drink. For the price we paid it was excellent and I would recommend it to anyone travelling for a few days. Great location - just a short walk to the old town...

Nice hotel with small rooms, but clean and secure. Breakfast was a full buffet with Vodka and Champagne, which was a good starter!! Located inside the old city and close to all the activities. Expensive to park nearby.

Great looking hotel from the inside located on a quiet street. Classical interior with a modern twist. Loved the breakfast and service, disliked the extremely small room and shower. I am a big guy so having issues with the small shower is logical, but even my tiny girlfriend had issues with that shower. If you stay here, take a bigger...

Well, this hotel failed to impress us so that we actually forgot to write a review on it - we stayed there in September. The only thing that was not forgettable since it was such a bad experience was the "spa". Please do yourself a favour and skip it! We booked a massage and the "therapists" chewed gum and talked...

The hotel is rather good, rooms are nice equipped, free internet is working without problems. Good quality of sleeping. Breakfast is rather poor. Location is nice just in the small street at the end of old town so it is good place for sightseeing. They offer parking area additionaly but it is expensive - You can not leave a car...

The hotel is located in the downtown of Riga and all tourist spots are within 5-10 min walking distance. It is a little further from noisy bars and nightclubs so you can expect to sleep well as the street is very quiet. There are couple of abandoned buildings around that are safely covered but the back side of this hotel...

Stayed here multiple times. Price was about 45 EUR for a night for a single. Excellent internet connection both ways. Rooms are perfect. You can still hear neighbors, but it is bearable.

Riga always has to offer a special European charm, and this hotel is located in the core of the Old Riga City - best location to explore this beautiful city.
