I stayed in this hotel only for a night using it as a B&B since it's near the Riga airport and useful if you need to take a flight early in the morning. The modern rooms are large, suitable for two adults. Toilets in the rooms are equipped with different accessories as hairdryer or different towels. Talking about the staff,...

The primary advantage of this hotel is proximity to the airport. It's a matter of minutes by car or just two stops away by bus. Moderate pricing. Rooms are simple yet spacious while beds are just great. Smaller details follow the style of simplistic American motels which includes windows, plumbing, lamps, etc. Excellent staff, always friendly, very polite and willing...

This hotel is slightly off the beaten path of the main sights in Riga and Old Town Riga, but it's right next to the airport and very well run with a complimentary breakfast that can be taken along on your flight. The hotel is very clean and the Canadian owner that we met during our stay took personal concern and...

The hotel is not in the main city but a short ride away. There is a mall that would be possible to walk to with a overhead walk area over the highway. They had areas outside to sit and relax. We arrived there in the morning before our room was ready but they were great about holding our luggage so...

One night here before an early morning flight. Went in to town for dinner which Im sure was the best option.The negatives are the tired decor and very old fashioned room furniture and fittings. I would go as far as to say, horrible. The positives the military precision at reception sorting out airport shuttle timings and breakfast packed lunch, the...

Room was a good standard with comfortable bed, well equipped. The bathroom was ok, with a shower cubicle. The restaurant/bar was very quiet, in fact no one was there. However the service and food was excellent and well worth trying. All in all, a decent hotel that I would consider using again in the future.

It's no sound insulation on the doors of the room no. 109 doors. You can see just 5mm space around the doors. And of course also hear everything outside. And you will be waked up by the noises not when you was expected... Really will not return there. Not expected from Best Western.

“Call ahead and ask for the corner room with the king size bed. We ate onsite and it was reasonable and very good.”

“If you can, try to ask for a room with a window that do not look on the entrance. Everyone looks at you when they are smoking outside. To avoid, you need to close all the curtains. Especially on the ground floor.”
