Lovely hotel in center of Riga. Staying one night here for business. Free parking just in front of the hotel on the nice cobbled pavement. Which is a nice touch after having paid €15 a night for the parking at the previous hotel in Tallinn. Very convenient too, get out of the door in the morning, jump in the car and off you go. Deluxe room is seriously big, furnished with lovely Marie Antoinette style furniture, all very elegant and chick. The double bed felt very comfortable. Large bathroom with the bath and lots of nice smelly bottles, even the rose scented candle on the sink, which has unfortunately been burnt out by the previous guest, they should have replaced it for the new guest I suppose :-)
Being on business in Riga stuck at the laptop in the hotel room the evening as usual, so didn't have chance to venture out for a meal, but didn't feel any need either. The food in the hotel is excellent, the beef carpaccio with foie gras is seriously good, as well as mozzarella and tomato salad and cheese selection.
Would definitely come to stay here again.
