Rating by category:
Close to the airport and actually had their own airport shuttle. They have free internet and the breakfast was time to the patron, not on a specific schedule.
Comfort just what you need, if your flight arrival latest evening and you have again flight next early morning.Very good shuttle bus service from/to airport.
Very close (5 min by taxi or the hotel shuttle) tonthe Riga airport and 15 min at no traffic from Riga city center. When coming to airport look for or call for the airport shuttle as this is free. Do alternatively take a red or green taxi. Any other colour taxi is taxis with no meter and/or taxi with rip off pricing policy. That the latter taxis is parked right in front of the airport exit just tells you something about the political rule etc in Latvia. The hotel breakfast is present but not impressive, otherwise fine hotel for a night in connection to a flight. Nothing else.
transfer to and from airport
I couldn't fall asleep until 4 am as on my flour there was a party and lound music and constant walk in corridor (next to my room) was very loud. Reception is located only 1 floor beneath the all-night-party. I hope this was exceptional experience
Perfect localization if you travel by plain through Riga (3 minutes by car from the airport). We booked double room with extra bed - during check out we got 2-rooms appartment.
no elevator and no warm meals for breakfast
Very close to the airport and so ideal for the transit traveller. Clean place with free wi-fi and a good breakfast. Very helpful staff.
No food to buy if you arrive during the night. Should provide some sort of service for night travellers.
Excellent accommodating staff. fairly close to the airport.
Whilst fairly close to the airport - just a bit too far to walk. Value could have been better
The shuttle service to/from airport is excellent. Just give a ring, and it is done. Nice large rooms against nice prices.
To my oppinion they forgot to clean the shower, I guess this happens ones in a while, so no harm done.
I was very pleased! The Staff was very helpful. They are very good at what they do, and friendly and efficient. I wish all hotels were as well run as this one is. The location is perfect for taking a car to other areas in the region and close enough to Riga, a short cab ride from the center. And the food was good too!
The stuff,complimentary transfer
The toilet didn`t flash proparly
Friendly staff, clean and cosy room. Not too far from the airport, but very quiet. Free transfer from/to the airport. Exceptionally convinent for transfer travellers!
It is a small hotel very close to the airport (5 min by car). The hotel has spacious rooms and a free shuttle to the airprot. The serve a very early breakfast which is good for morning AirBaltic flights.
The stay was short and I enjoyed it very much.
The reception staff were friendly, helpful,and efficient. It was very clean comfortable and walm even though temps outside of -12. I had a good choise for breakfast. It is very near the Riga Airport which you could not hear, and offers a free shuttle to the airport.
A different bed cover might help as when made up there was only one blanket on the bed but with others in a cupboard not a real problem.
Shuttle bus driver behaviour killed all what I liked.
If you love you to struggle your way through entrance doors and climbe into the shuttle bus with your luggages whilst the driver stands with his hands in his pocket, then this is the place you want to stay.
Good location for Air Baltic transit passengers. Seattle service, reasonable pricing.
Buffet breakfast starts at 7.00. Some food and coffee available earlier however early full buffet breakfast (from 5.30 or 6.00) is what I expect when book hotel next to airport.
