Stayed here for one night on a short visit to my favourite dress manufacturer (Magnolica) whose factory is located close to the hotel. Room was correct but characterless and with noticeable water damage on the desk/night tables. Stark white bathroom. Central AC not very powerful so you may want to consider a lower floor if it's hot (which it was... More

Simple but modern design room with big bathroom and comfortable bed. A little garden with blooming flowers that sits in front of the hotel is nice and fresh. A huge white elephant statue sitting in the lobby is quite impressive. Great breakfast to start a good day.

The location is not good for tourists seeking for sightseeing but perfect for business travelers. Rooms is standard size well equipped and clean. Part of the hotel off the main road is very quiet! Beds are on the rolls, so be careful not driving around your room... :o) Breakfast very good!

Reception staff was nice and check-in was quite fast. I was surprised how good the room looked, but it had some downsides and shortages.

Stayed here overnight for trip to Liapaja. Only about five minutes from the airport and Riga town.Everything about the hotel was great, and for £23 a night for Bed and breakfast, you can't go wrong . Very clean, good bedroom with great shower, nice breakfast. Would definitely return if we ever go back.
