Have staid here several times before, but it seems to have lost its direction. In particular breakfasts (included in your room rate - no option) are a disaster during the weekend. People sitting everywhere around the hotel, including bar, lobby etc. as there is absolute pandemonium, too many people not enough tables, chairs etc. The whole set up is an...

Very nice hotel outside Riga inner city, by a big road. Rooms tidy and bright. Beds very comfortable, the bathroom a little outdated maybe. Or it didn't hold the high standard as the rest of the room. Big windows, we had a view towards the street, but heard no traffic noise. Breakfast was good, different breads, eggs in different forms,...

Location is great. Close to Airport and short driving distance across the bridge into the city centre. If you are there for businnes, plan your time to get into city well ahead as the traffic gets pretty heavy. Hotel itself is nice and clean and most important that it was quiet, and the hotel is at the road side. If...

What we liked: Our spacious room with modern decor and a lot of natural light (we stayed with two kids and our room was upgraded to the bigger one for free!!). Friendly and helpful staff. Delicious breakfast with good variety of healthy food (fresh fruit, yogurts, granola with dried berries, etc). 15 minutes walking (or 5 minutes driving) to the...

This hotel was one of the best that I've stayed in Riga. The breakfast was very good. I've also eaten dinner there - the food was good and prices average. The room was clean and nice. The room was quiet and I've had good sleep there. The small minus could be for location - it is quite far from the...

I was looking for a hotel that's close enough to the city, airport and shopping. Rixwell Elephant is a perfect fit for business and value travelers. The room was clean and quiet, well equipped with iron, fridge and hair dryer (with all appliances working properly). The bed was very comfortable and bed linen was spotless. A tasty breakfast. Also, great...

Good: Clean up-to-date hotel that is near perfect. The rooms are large and very modern and all appliances such as shower, air-con, fridge and TV are faultless. There is a good choice of breakfast items which are always kept replenished. A 100 yards away is bus 22 will take you into town for just over €1. The large shopping mall...
