    The location of the hotel was very good and value for money. We were never all that long in the room itself, as we were out in the old town of Riga.

    The breakfast was dreadful. The staff at the hotel were quite ignorrant as well as abrupt.

    Hotels stuff is friendly and helpful. Hotel is in perfect location. You´ll find Railway station just across the street and Old Town in 5 min walk.

    All kind of sounds outside the window and lack of air conditioning. If hotel would have soundproof windows and air conditioning it would be perfect.

    The location is ok. Not far from the Old Town. Close to the railway and bus station and shopping centers.

    The room was very small, cold and dark, poor conditioning. poor catering.

    Good hotell. The location is really great - right near the rail and the bus station. Basic but clean rooms, good breakfast. Staff was helpful and spoke good English and Russian.

    Parking across the street. Security guard and the reception girl looked tired and bored :(

    The location was great,close to all transport links,easy to get from the airport.

    It's no smoking area anywhere in the hotel,so you have to go outside all the time. The staff is not very helpful.the room was very dirty,the carpet had a lot of stains from wine and other things on it!the shower room smelled of dumpiness.had a room for two and found it very small even for one person. The breakfast is ok,but coffee is not good.

    Superb

    Helpful reception staff, my room and bathroom were clean, very good breakfast, early check-in, international TV options, refrigerators in the rooms, nice warm blankets, excellent location (next to the train station and 10 minutes walk to the old town), safe well-lit street, easy transportation connections. My room faced the courtyard so it was quiet.

    Nothing really, everything was fine for a budget hotel. A tea/coffee maker in the room would be a nice addition, but I understand it's a rare thing in the area. The hotel provides only liquid soap in the rooms, like on cruise ships, so you may want to bring some shampoo if needed.

    The best is the localization of the hotel.

    The room was very small, without aircon and not clean

  • 7.0
    Very good

    Good thing about location - close to railway station and city center. In other things - I did not expect anything better. Met expectations.

    Bad thing about location - windows face a very noisy street. We did not have good sleep at all. One more thing to mention - no drinking water in the room even for payment. No drinking water at breakfast table. We had to ask for it separately.
