A friend recommended this hotel. We stayed 2 nights in mid-July. It is exceptionally centrally and silently located, that part of the street is pedestrian. I booked directly and by email, the staff replied quickly and gave all support. Given that we preferred 2 beds, the staff provided an extra bed in a one double-bed room without charging anything. There...

This time on my annual summer trip to Riga I wanted to stay in the old part of the town ('vecriga' in Latvian). The location of this small hotel (only 16 rooms) was perfect, on a quiet small alley yet in the middle of old town and within walking distance from the central station and the bus station. Also an...

Well located in centre of old Riga, on a quiet side street. Old buildings that have been brought up to modern standards. Comfortable bedroom but no air conditioning and with temperatures 30+ it was much needed. Breakfast let the hotel down. It was not the usual buffet style but waitress service with a very poor choice and plastic jam etc.

Our room was one of the nicest I have stayed in, with wooden floors, a huge window & plenty of space. We also had free wifi....

The hotel is in old town right in the heart of the action but on a quiet hidden side street. Rooms are nice and clean with an a la carte breakfast included. Our small group decided to have supper in the hotel restaurant "Palette" one night..probably the best culinary delight of our entire visit to the Baltic States!

This hotel is in a great location in the middle of the old town. Walking distance to all the restaurants, bars and sites of Riga. The male Manager on duty when we arrived was really helpful. We did have an issue with the staff in the restaurant but the other female manager sorted out the issue for us. Basically we...
