The location is excellent for visiting Riga as a tourist. The reception was efficient. The breakfast was good with very attentive and friendly service. The room and bathroom were well equipped with modern fittings and a good Internet connection and effective AC - important in the hot weather. Our room looked out over the small, dark courtyard and bar, however,...

there is much to like about this hotel. the lobby is charming with canaries singing and bouquets of fresh flowers. Also, the hotel has a very good location, helpful staff, and pleasant breakfasts. but, once you go upstairs, this all changes. the rugs smell like a damp basement. the rooms are drab and àlso have a moldy odor. the management...

Nice, small botique hotel in the heart of the old town in Riga. Nice, large and clean rooms. All facilities like iron, minibar, safe and aircondition that works even when the windows where open. OK breakfast, but a little greakfast room in the "basement". Nice and friendly staff and OK prices.

When we first registered at the hotel we were placed in the old section which was delightful and quaint but did not have air con and lacked space. As it was hot we asked to be moved and the new room was spacious comfortable and value for money. The hotel is placed very centrally in the old city and the...

Perfectly located for exploring the Old Town, and featuring some delightful and imaginative design ideas, this boutique hotel made an excellent base for a five day visit to Riga BUT our large comfortable room had only a tiny wardrobe for hanging clothes and NO drawers or shelves to accommoodate shirts, jumpers, underwear, and all the other items that we quite...

I spend a week end in this hotel. The single room I was given, in the 5 th floor, was big enough and very calm. The bed could have been a little bigger! The bathroom is confortable, with basic amenities. Big creen TV with lots of international channels. Good! Breakfast ok. Nice bar with interior patio. Nice staff. Hotel located...

what was good: mattress + pillows, location, design of communal areas what was bad: unfriendly and frankly disinterested staff. we were shoved in a small and cramped, poorly lit room on the ground floor facing a dark, dingy, and small internal courtyard where people smoke (could not leave the window open as the smell would fill up the room). couldn't...

I'm still staying at the hotel and feel compelled to write this review to avoid other people ever staying here!
