    I liked only location

    Very small hotel,breakfast included only 2 cups of coffee!!I heard rat's scrabbling under the floor, our room was at the 1st floor.

  • Single

    Very good prices and very good location.

  • Couple

    Honestly - nothing. The hotel even lied about the quantity of their rooms - they have just 4 small rooms(on they've stated 10). The location is really difficult to find, not to mention there's not an emergency exit.

    The old lady who checked us in didn't speak any English.Was really difficult even to ask for a map.The room is really small for 2 persons.Not to mention the bed was only for 1 person.The shower is located inside the room,exactly next to the bed-there's no wall,so the person taking a shower is seen from the outside.The window couldn't open even 10cm.We didn't have a key for our own door.The lady was opening the door for us,that means she also could get in whenever she wanted.The cleanness was 0.To top it all on the second evening we were witnesses of a real russian fight! In stead of the old lady,out there, (just 5cm away from our door) was her daughter in law fighting with her husband!We checked out before our last night.

    Quite hard to find with no sign on the main street. Fairly unpleasant access via an alleyway smelling of urine and with overflowing waste bins parked in it... No reflection on the hotel but not too inviting. Room nothing like description on website. Small, very hot and stuffy with no a/c just a small fairly ineffectual fan. In fairness though it was extremely hot everywhere in Riga. Great location just a few minutes' walk from the central train + bus stations (and other establishments of interest to the male traveller....) Charming elderly lady runs it and all in all value for money I'd say, but haven't stayed anywhere else in Riga to be able to make any comparisons.

  • Single

    ıt was great . clean cheap and nearly cıty center

  • Couple

    Only good thing was that you can get a brekfast to the room. Staff was friendly.

  • Single

    Poor language skills, uncomfortable bed
