I visited the Rixwell Elefant Hotel in Early February 2017 with family. Beautiful hotel with nice rooms and nice bathrooms, nice facility with good decor, but very average breakfast. As a vegetarian i didn't have a wide range of option for breakfast and everything was very basic and plain.

Good hotel based close to Riga airport. Nice and friendly staff. Restaurant was cosy, great food and service. Room was big and comfortable. Bathroom needs some updates, but overall very clean. Room cleanliness good. Hotel also provide different spa treatments. We enjoyed relaxing massage. Thank you for all hotel personal who made our stay so comfortable.

I found an offer of 32€ per night (2 person) on booking.com Stayed there during TechChill 2-day conference event. We got a room right at the main road where was a lot of traffic. Although I asked for a quiet room I was placed there. The sound-proofing does minimize the noise, but sometimes you could really hear the traffic. One...

Lots of elephant statues including one the size of a small bus in the restaurant area this modern hotel is about a 15-20 minute ride on the bus from right outside into Riga Old town. Helpful staff and a good selection breakfast buffet as well as a good choice of food in the evening. Very reasonably priced too

We stayed as a couple recently on our 4 day visit to Riga. The hotel is just 20mins from the airport and can be reached by taxi (around 10 Euro) or by No 22 bus (2 Euro). If taking the 22 bus, when you pass by a massive SPICE shopping centre on the right, you can see the sign Rixwell...
