Myself and my fiancé stayed for two nights last week and found the hotel to be very comfortable and clean. Plenty of choice for breakfast and we also had a lovely meal in the evening. The bed was very comfortable and bathroom was basic but clean. All the staff were polite and helpful. Would definitely recommend to friends and family...

My partner and I have just returned from a three day trip staying at this lovely hotel. We paid less than £150 each for a three night stay including flights so we were gobsmacked about the quality of the hotel included in the package. As many previous reviews have stated you are in the middle of nowhere so nothing to...

We arrived at Riga airport ,there were lots of taxis to take, and our hotel said 11 euros for the journey. We had room320 which faced a quiet courtyard( at the front of the hotel was a main road, but not too noisy)and we were given a bath as requested. A bonus was to hit Independence Day and there was...

Just spent 3 nights here. 4 star with a champagne breakfast included daily. Cheap taxi ride from the airport,don't risk the 22 bus if you haven't been before,if you miss the stop it's a nightmare. I don't think I will be back to Riga again but would stay here again if I did without any worries.

We have just returned from a 3 night stay in the hotel that was part of a package booked through Travelinteraction at an unbelievably low price that was too good to ignore. I have to admit we feared the worse, however, the hotel exceeded our expectations and the travel in and out to Riga Old Town was part of the...

We booked three nights here. It's in a somewhat dismal area but it's only five minutes and a €7.50 taxi ride away from the airport. You can get into Riga by bus cheaply, but taxis back after midnight from the tourist areas are very expensive. The hotel has a small reception, a bar with reasonable prices and a dining room...

Very good room, and bathroom well - appointed. Snow outside, but we had to turn the heating down! Good to have a kettle available, and tea/coffee supplies replenished every day. Very helpful staff - when they ran out of croissants at breakfast time we were given cheesecake when we complained. The evening meal was first-class, beautifully cooked and presented. The...

Superb hotel to stay at right by the airport. It's very very well priced with lovely rooms and very comfortable beds. Breakfast is really nice with a glass of champagne too. Rooms are very clean and tidy and you have access to a spa if wanted. There is a gym but with a night stay we had I never visited...

My wife and I stayed at this hotel when we came to Riga for a long weekend away. We were pleasantly surprised when we got to this comfortable and modern hotel where we made the booking. It was also a very simple bus ride from the airport (the 22 bus) that drops you basically straight to the hotel. There is...

We liked this hotel. We took a bit better room class and it was 150 % worth our money. Breakfast was very good, but unfortunately many items run out long before the breakfast time ended. It is quite some way from here to the city center, but luckily taxis are quite inexpensive here.
