Hotel A1 Gertrude Iela RigaPosted Aug 5, 2014
Pros: A lot of shops surrounding the hotel. Bus/trolley stop opposite the hotel. Convenience.
Cons: Safe deposit box. Air conditioner didn't work too.
Location: Quite far from old town but nice (I visited 4) antique shops around the hotel.
The hotel has no façade. One has to walk through a long alleyway to reach the reception on the 2nd floor. This said, the room is furnished to very high standard. TV, WiFi all worked well. Towels are changed everyday. Breakfast is good. My only qualm is: my room faces Gertrude street, traffic is heavy and my room is noisy till midnight even when window is shut. Also, there is no safe deposit box. Instead one deposits one's belongings in a self adhesive plastic bag at the reception.

Looks dodgy from the outside, but great inside!Posted Mar 31, 2014 on Hotels.com
This hotel looks run down and dodgy from the entrance way, all the way up the stairs to the rooms (lots of stairs, be warned). But the rooms are really nice - very clean, spacious and well equipped. The area is quiet and feels safe, and it's close to all the touristy sites. I've already booked my next stay here!

No LiftPosted Sep 18, 2013
Pros: Breakfast was quite good.
Cons: Wifi only works at the reception area which was down on the 2nd floor. Instal a lift would be a great improvement.
Location: Excellent eating place near gardens is Lido and there is also a Lido right next to the Hotel which is a smaller version of the main restaurant.
We didn't do our homework really well as when we arrived we had to walk up the stairs to the 2nd floor with our suitcases to reception and then after receiving our key we had to walk up the stairs together with suitcases to the 5th floor where our room was situated. We are in our 60's and it was a real effort. It was also a 30minute walk to old town.

Great Value Hotel in Riga CenterPosted Jul 13, 2013 on Hotels.com
The location is good. Walking distance from bus and train station. Good busy street with lots of shops, cafes, restaurants within blocks. Hotel is well managed, great breakfast and staff. Overall, I'm happy with my stay!

Great value, great location, great staff!Posted Jan 28, 2013 on Hotels.com
I am completely satisfied with my stay at this inexpensive and perfectly located hotel. This hotel is literally two blocks from the historical town center, and was a great value. The staff was kind and attentive, answering all of my questions, as well as arranging for airport rides (to and from), wake-up calls (knocks, actually!) and overall made me feel at home. They have two computers in the lobby that are free to use. I would definitely recommend this hotel and stay there again!
