Great hotel

Posted Oct 31, 2017
This was our fourth stay at the hotel and ticks pretty much every box in our requirements. The rooms are bright, comfortable and well maintained. The hotel is well positioned for good road connections, shopping and Riga town. There are good parking areas near to the hotel and a fuel station near by. We have always found the staff to be helpful and friendly. Good to see some small improvements made in the self service area for breakfast to try and ease congestion around the food stations, but It could do with a wider gap between the coffee machines and the hot food station.

Close to airport

Posted Sep 2, 2017
Very close to the airport. Gate information was available on tv in room and reception. Food was nice at dinner. Room was warm and was very quiet given all the traffic outside. Was a 50minute walk to the old town.

Reasonable airport location

Posted Aug 23, 2017
We arrived late at night and left early in the morning. We did not have time for any local travel. The hotel staff was helpful and professional. The room was adequate for our quick stay. It is reasonably close to the airport and having a gas station (Circle K) around back made fueling the rental car easy. The on property parking seemed expensive to me so we used the less expensive option they had of the surface parking down the street. That lot is secured but requires less than a 100 yard walk on the sidewalk. A little extra lighting on the street would have made the walk safer. The lot entrance was in the darkened area off the sidewalk. The breakfast was more than adequate. There were good selections of healthy fruits and vegetables. There were also some cereal, toast and jelly. We booked the location because it was close to the airport. A shuttle service is available and I suggest you arrange for it as quickly as you can. Taxi service is also available at rates that appear to be normal with the area. The hotel is a little difficult to get to due to its location off the main area road. Taking a wrong turn will cause you to go out of your way. This is because of the many one way streets in the area and inadequate turn opportunities.

Great place to stay in Riga

1 mile from large modern shopping mall. Beautiful and comfortable hotel! Safe neighborhood. Ten min. drive to the airport and if you ask the front desk they'll have a car waiting to take you their for only 10 euro!

Great Hotel.

Posted Jul 13, 2017
Pros: Cleanliness, comfort, location, food, price, colleagues.
Cons: The only thing would be the self service area for hot drinks, toaster and hot and cold food. It is quite compact and does get very congested.
Location: Visit Riga town, €4 taxi is great value. Spice shopping is walking distance where you will find new and familiar retailers.
This is our third time of staying at the hotel and always find the staff to be helpful and friendly. The food is of a high standard, general cleanliness is very good and rooms are very comfortable and clean. The locating is good with ample parking,close to airport and near to main roads for trevelling around the country. Only one niggle. On our first day for breakfast, there were no yogurts and the toaster was broken. All rectified the next morning but the toaster broke again in our second week.
