“Great combination of modern and historic”
Reviewed 31 May 2012

This hotel is a delightful combination of modern comforts and old-world charm. Our fifth-floor room (a suite, really), furnished with modern leather sofas, large flat TV, and modern original(!) art overlooked the spires and tiled rooftops of old Riga. The breakfast is excellent, laundry service is cheap, and the hotel is close to all the major attractions in the city. The hotel is less than 10 minutes walk from the train and bus terminals, and the huge daily market.

Room Tip: Fifth floor rooms facing into the city have great view over rooftops

A good 4 star hotel in the heart of Riga (called Old Riga) with a simple modern reception with nice and meticulously cleaned rooms. A great value for the price. And one of the best reception's team that I have ever met.

Room Tip: Even if in Riga most of the beautiful historical building have not elevator, off course all the hote...

Located in the heart of the old city, this no frills property offer a good value for money.
Very friendly and professional staff at the front desk. Unfortunately not so friendly in the breakfast room ...
Pretty large basic equipped room, with tiny tiny bathroom but very clean. Only one important inconvenience: soundproofing. Noises both from the street and from the adjacent rooms. The choice of a white blackout blind courtain might be fancy but totally useless for the purpose.
Average breakfast buffet.

An excellent place to stay in the heart of the oldtown, very close walking distance to all sights. We stayed in a junior suite, very spacious, excellent value for money. Only downside, heating in the room was not adequate for its size. Also, the bathroom was small prportionately to the room size. However, overall great and I'd recommend this hotel to anyone wanting comfort, style, good value and excellent location. Also, breakfast great.

I never understand people that complain about hotels. If you're a traveller a hotel should just be a place to sleep. Any hoo, that being said this is a wonderful hotel to stay at. Right in the heart of the old city and not too far from the train station or the 22 bus that takes you to the airport. The rooms are of a good size and comfortable. The bathroom had heated floors and everything was nice and clean when we came back from a day of traveling.
