    We were indeed very impressed by the suite we had and by the good breakfast served in the morning. But what impressed us above all is the efficiency of the staff in trying to help us through our difficult situation due to the airport closure following the vulcano eruption. This hotel is indeed excellent in every way! My wife, our children and I would recommend it to anybody.

    Very good

    A nice hotel with friendly staff.

    The AC didn't work in any of the rooms and the hotel got a lot of complains from all the guests. It was 30 degrees outside so it was hard to sleep. Also little too far from the centre if you don't like long walks. But I still recomend this hotel.

    Fabulous

    The hotel itself is nice, clean and correct. Breakfasts are rich and with big choice of food (buffet) - I really liked them.

    Location: the hotel is located quite far from the old town and central station (like 15-20 min walking) in a district what seems a little bit abandoned and poor (old dirty buildings all around).

    The Location was central enough for the business meetings that I had to attend. The staff were helpful and friendly, the room was very comfortable and the breakfast buffet was excellent. Parking was a bit of a problem, but mainly due to the heavy snow. I will definitely be back.

    Superb

    Comfortable rooms, clean, nice breakfast, value for money. Helpful and Competent Staff. Location - almost city center, close to old town but not recommended walking alone (to direction away from city center) in the night because it might be dangerous. Better ask for cheap taxi in reception.

    Breakfast was good.

    Location is not good. During the evening there was no light on the street. No place nearby to eat, only LIDO restaraunt where food is not good. Very small standard room. In the bathroom there was water on the ground, we didn't claimed as stayed one night only.

    Good location close to Riga centre. Secure parking - a much needed facility in Riga. Airconditioning in room could be improved.

    The room had nice interior design.

    The should be floor heating in the bathroom and better organized parking possibilities.

    Exclusive

    Nicely designed hotel placed in an old tenement quite close to the old town (around 20 minutes of walk). Friendly staff. Excellent breakfast. Quiet and peaceful area, although some bulidings around look old and shabby. Good value for money.

    Limited number of car parking space in the courtyard (max 4 cars). The room, which we initially received had to be changed, because of heavy cigarette smoke smell inside. Generally, it seems people have problems with smoking in Riga, as both at the reception and in the room they provided free artificial cigarettes.
