Stayed there for 1 night only. I must admit that I did not have much expectation for its price and location. It is truly a budget choice and its location (near to the bus and train terminal) means it is a fast turnover, business hotel. My experience tells me that it is a hotel for a sleep only. However, Avalon...

I've been to Riga about a dozen times over the past 10 yrs. My preference is to stay in the Old Town, and while this was a bit further than normal, it was perfect. It's a modern hotel and it was a pleasant stay. Anyone who has stayed in the Old Town will know that most hotels will have noise...

We spent a long weekend with some friends in Avalon hotel. Must say that the experience was positive, and we had some difficulties in understanding some comments like "noisy" or "no wifi in rooms". For us everything worked well, it was silent, wifi worked perfectly and the location is perfect. You access trains, buses, trams easily and the old town...

I've chosen this hotel because it is very close to the station and I arrived in Riga by bus. The hotel position is not too bad and is kind of easy to visit riga (which is a pretty small city). The breakfast is kind of poor and the room is just fine (definitely not a four star standard though). The...

Me and my boyfriend stayed in this hotel in February 2014 for 3 nights. As it was not the cheapest place to stay, we expected it to be good and we were definitely not let down! We chose this hotel as it is located right in the Old Town of Riga and has plenty of things to do and see...

Hotel was perfectly located in the Old Town, a short walk along the road found us in its very heart. The room was ideal for the 2 of us, great size and had everything we needed, a safe, an iron/ironing board, good storage and a fabulous shower room. Breakfast was a feast and was on at a good time and...
