We stayed here for a weekend in February and had an amazing time in this hotel. From start to finish, the hotel impressed on all levels. Lovely, helpful staff, a great breakfast, and the room was gorgeous. We spent the first night in the bar where the service was perfect, then used the hotel as a base to explore Riga....

What can I say?! Stayed here seventh time and it still has the wow factor as it did when I first stayed there! I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. Romance, luxury, fantastic service - especially Front Office. The room was beautiful, the staff outstanding. What a property, felt like a castle. It was absolutely gorgeous to see the flowers...

Top drawer all around. As close to perfect as you can get! The staff bent over backwards to satisfy my needs without being over-bearing. My needs were anticipated may times without me asking. You can tell when staff like their jobs and like their environment. This is a bunch of happy people.

Morning light through 2 large windows and view to the old town street and roof tops in the snow made our stay little bit special. We are not very demanding, but staff was really nice, hotel has perfect location and has everything we needed during our short stay.

Why only "close to"? Just because the true perfection is unreachable :) This is a very, very nice hotel, with great location, staff and maitenance. You will never regret staying here. One also cannot avoid mentioning a special staff member - Misha the Parrot. Double-glazed windows was the only thing we were missing, as the renovation workers in a building...

From arrival and check in through departure, staff were courteous and so helpful. They upgraded our accommodation and the room was remarkable!! So comfortable with added touches like heated floors which were nice in the winter. The concierge made reservations at the most wonderful Latvian restaurant and a complimentary sauna appointment the next day. The hotel is so close to...

The hotel is located perfectly, two steps from the main sightseeings. Rooms are very cosy and clean (by the way our room was made up twice a day) with rather good soundproof. Breakfast are fine but we were really excited by the quality of the main restaurant dishes (we made orders to the room). Delicious and fresh! In particular, we...

The hotel is excellent but the lobby and the entrance are too small. Not convenient for the client to leave and asks in presence of other people for the room keys every time (disclosing then the room number to others).
