Well the furniture may be slightly older. The staff is the most professional and pleasant of the 3 Blu's I've stayed in. Igors at the lobby Bar always is a welcoming face. The spread of food in the morning is amazing. Be sure to ask for a room at the front of the hotel to take in the amazing views....

Radisson Blu Daugava is across the road from Latvia's jaw-dropping national library and is the first stop on the 22 bus or 222 minibus from the airport into the city centre It is just 10 minutes walk across...

Staff is very professional. Rooms are clean but a bit worn. Breakfast is awesome! Pool area should have a jacuzzi or warmer water in the pool. The view from upper levels over the river Daugava and Old City is special... Would recommend!

Disapointing! Very old room where temperature can't be adjusted. No modern comfort. It wasn't what we expected from a radisson hotel. Breakfast was good! Staff was friendly. We would not recommend the hotel!

The hotel is fairly central, just across the river from the Old town. It is a typical soviet-style hotel where everything is big and functional. Even though it has been renovated an modernized, it still has an impersonal atmosphere. It functions well for conferences and big groups. But if you want something romatic and cozy - you will not find...

Spent a long weekend with wife and one year old baby. Competent and friendly multilingual staff. Beautiful view to the city. Nice swimming pool we used every day.

Very efficient and friendly staff however the hotel is dated and in urgent need of an update. It says it's 4.5 stars which is inaccurate. Had they said they were 3 star I would have given them a higher rating as it is more reflective of what it is. I paid for a bigger room on check-in. I'm glad I...

Ok if you're staying overnight, as the price is quite cheep. Seems old and dated, rooms need to be updated, as the furniture and walls seen better days. Decent breakfast and friendly staff. Good location too.
