Plus Points: Free WiFi with a good connection throughout the hotel, friendly and helpful staff, breakfast. Minus Points: TV did not work due to no antenna connection, not good when you have kids. No Restaurant, although Breakfast room could make a ideal restaurant for the evenings, Hotel Bar has space for 9 people! Overall: i would stay here again and recommend to friends, location is ideal to the center of Riga with good bus and tram connections.

Bad experience in Rixwell Gertrude hotel
The location of this hotel is bad for tourists, because it is a 25 minute walk to the start of the old town. When I arrived at the hotel the receptionist asked me if I would wait five minutes until she returned. She did not return for much longer and she could easily have checked me in before she went on her break. She then asked me for a €50 cash deposit to cover the cost of anything I might use in the minibar, which is abnormal. I got into the lift where I read a notice that the water would not be working in the whole hotel that day from 13 to 19 hours. When I entered my room I saw that the curtains were useless, as they were so thin, and the room was facing east. I had also asked for a quiet room and was given a room facing the street with busy traffic. I returned to the receptionist and asked her to change my room and she refused saying that the curtains were the same in all rooms. She could have moved me to the west side of the building where the sun does not rise and where it was quiet. As a result I was woken up at 4.15am with sunlight pouring into the room (as it is near mid-summer). By 6am the room was like an oven. The shower was also broken. It could not be fixed in place and the pressure of the water made it turn and send the water onto the floor. The carpet under the beds was very dirty. The receptionist and a lady in the breakfast room were rude. No one was helpful. If repairs were made and the staff were polite this hotel would deserve not more than 3 stars.

OK Riga base.
Convenient location for all things Riga. Polite but dour staff. Mind you, a smile doesn't come easy anywhere in Riga as far as we could see. Very clean. Nice rooms and good breakfast. Small bar downstairs staffed by busy reception staff. Overwhelmed by large tour groups all wanting drinks at the same time. Taxis are cheap to mostly everywhere. O K really and nothing to seriously moan about but some Didney style training for the staff wouldn't go amiss
