My husband and I recently spent four lovely nights at Homestay in Riga. The house is beautiful, and our room was very comfortable. Ric and Diga are very welcoming hosts and charming conversationalists. We did our best to solve, or at least analyze, the world's problems over some good Latvian beer. They gave us excellent suggestions about getting around Riga and what to see. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious-- eggs, bacon, homemade bread and muesli, stewed apples from local gardens. Ric is a fantastic cook.
The house is in Meza Park, a very upscale suburb just a short trolley ride from the center city. Ric led us on a fascinating tour of the neighborhood. The architecture and history of Riga and Meza Park is amazing.
Homestay has my highest recommendation.
