I've stayed at close to 20 Radisson properties over the last few years and the sole reason why I stick to big name brands is to get some sort of consistency. Not the case here. The hotel is BADLY outdated and in a desperate need for a renovation, on top of which it's cleaning standards are subpar to say the least.
I'll let the pictures speak for themselves, but let's just say I don't expect to see cracked walls, mould, dirty windows (that don't properly shut), broken bathroom doors or a bath that gets empty in 15 minutes at a Radisson hotel.
Neither do I expect to see a visible layer of dust on the TV stand.
As a Gold, I was upgraded to a Superior room. I dread to think what the standard rooms are like!
I guess I should've taken the hint when the hotel's nightly rate was quite a bit lower than other Radissons in Riga. There's a very good reason for it, but even 90 euros a night is way too much for what's essentially a dated 2 or 3 star property.
Most of all, it's quite clear that this isn't an isolated case, so it shocks me how Radisson doesn't care that some hotels are trashing their overall reputation and make properties like this get up to the general standard or lose their franchise. More
