The hotel is very comfortably placed in max 10-15 min walking distance from anything in Old Riga. The staff was very helpful and friendly, although sometimes very slow.
Large rooms and comfortable beds, floor heating in the bathrooms was a pleasent surprise. Aircon was efficient and silent.
Breakfast was sufficiently diverse with serials, full english, cheeses, cold cuts, toast and fruits and veg. The coffee machine produced surprisingly drinkable coffee.
However, the drawdown was the cleaning: carpets in the room had visible large stains, the floor of the room was not vacuumed even once over 3 days. We never got replenished the shampoo and shower gel tubes, they did not remove the used cups and glasses from the room either.
So overall ok, but not something to return to, especially considering there are many other options.
