of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
The hotel is located perfectly, two steps from the main sightseeings. Rooms are very cosy and clean (by the way our room was made up twice a day) with rather good soundproof. Breakfast are fine but we were really excited by the quality of the main restaurant dishes (we made orders to the room). Delicious and fresh! In particular, we tried Thai duck salad, Caesar salad with chicken, Prawns in curry, Asian sup, ice-cream and some dishes from the kids menu. And very attentive staff, we liked soooo much!:) If we come back we will stay here again, no doubt.
The hotel is excellent but the lobby and the entrance are too small. Not convenient for the client to leave and asks in presence of other people for the room keys every time (disclosing then the room number to others).

"Good, but not 5 Star plus, other than price!"
First the good points. Room was spacious clean, nicely decorated. Transfer from airport was great and service was generally pretty good. Breakfast was very good too. The hotel is in a very good location. The hotel has character. Beds were comfortable and nice touch re chocolates. The bad points, the tv has no movie channels and is pretty limited. The spa is booked privately so only you can use. That's great if you have booked but means the chances are that others have booked already, so no access for your stay. The steam room lacks mood lighting or relaxing scents. It's basic and plastic. The main bar permits smoking. Ok I suppose, but there is no where free from smoke as doors were open and most people in bar were puffing away, thinking they were in heaven smoking indoors. I was surprised. Showers are in bath, which are narrow at base and no thermostatic control so sometimes there would not be a constant temperature. So for me, it was not quite the luxury that I had imagined. It was good, but not that good.
"Cant belive this hotel isnt top 5"
I have to say this was a superb stay from start, until finish. We checked in early without a problem with a cozy sitdown checkin with the receptionist. Great service from all the receptionists. Helped me with restaurants and nightclub recomendation. Nothing felt to stiff or fancy even if the property and areas itself felt very classy! Loved the small breakfeast buffet and Micha(the Hotel Parrot who greeted us welcome every morning) Even if it looked small it had a very good variety. Didnt miss a thing. In the bar they served me a Old Faschioned that was served exactly as it should be. I took one more later on at Radisson Blu skybar which was terrible. So maybe one extra in the hotel bar next time! Next time im visiting Riga i will bring my friends instead of my mum :) Many thanks and good work!
