            Great location just in front of arena "Riga". Good value for money. Friendly staff. Free parking.

            Beds where not very comfortable but ok for one night. You can hear all the noise from guests above you.

            Price, breakfast included, private parking

            The towels were dirty, breakfast is quite scarse (though it is probably what you get for the [low] price)

          • Couple
            6.6

            Location of the hotel and a price.

            Receptionist could be more polite.

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            Great place for staying for consert, Riga Arena in other side of the road. Good beds, large room with fridge. Nothing luxurious but clean and basic.

            Little bit worn out, not near center. Closest bus stop 10min walk.

          • Group of friends
            7.4

            Helpful Staff, great location for those attending any events in Arena Riga

            You can hear every sound your neighbors make in adjacent rooms and hallway

          • Couple
            6.6

            It was good neighbourhood, people walked their dogs there a lot. It wasn't in the middle of the town, so it was peacefull. Breakfast was good and hotel staff polite.

            Our rooms floor was a little squeeqy. Sometimes the walk to the centrum felt too long but it was good exercise. :≫

            Silent place, clean room

            Located far from the centre of the city, poor breakfast, no elevator in the hotel

          • Group of friends
            7.4

            Cheap hotel, not far from the city centre if you don't mind walking 15 minutes. The hotel staff is great and always available and willing to help.

            7.8

            It is located 200m from Sport centre (http://www.ocriga.lv/) where you can go to gym, swimming pool, etc.
