“Nice……..but not that great!”
Reviewed 30 April 2012

Our friend chose this hotel as the hotel is really convenient to the old town and sights etc and is very quiet at night which is nice.
However, the ‘Junior Suite’ was hardly what I would call ‘Junior Suite’!! There was no tea / coffee making facilities / no tissues in the bathroom / a shower that you negotiate as the pipe was coming directly from the tap and would not hold in place on the holder so effectively you can only have a ‘hose down’! / no full length mirror / no ironing board and iron / safe that didn’t work / carpet very grubby / the bed squeaked and only 1 small hard pillow each (although they did bring two more when asked!). The room felt very very basic. The breakfast was not the best either……no glasses set out / food was not that warm in their hot bowel / limited selection of pastries / no milk / limited selection of tea / limited selection of hot food.
The bar was quite funky and the bar staff very friendly. But would I go back there – No!

We stayed here having had an awful experience in another Riga hotel and were delighted we chose here. Our room was big, airy, clean and comfortable with comfy beds and a good bathroom. The location is perfect - not as noisy as some others and easy distance to the very centre. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: We had one with a balcony - definitely a plus!!
