2/10 Poor

The hotel is faling apart, it has been taken care over the years. The TV did not work and they didn’t do anything about it. I asked for a double bed and got a two beds room and they couldn’t solved it either. It was poorly clean. The sealing of the bathroom had the lays of paint falling down... it was horrible! Unfortunately I don’t have photos but I stayed at room 201.

Nice experience
Nice experience. The hotel is about 20 min walk from the center, but it was not a problem for me. Situated in a quiet safety region. Rather old with shabby carpets in the halls, but the room was quite o.k., clean, comfortable bed, fridge, kettle for tea/coffee making, hot water any time, private bathroom, nice breakfast, very cheap. What more to ask. Recommend to other visitors.

I was with my friend one day suddenly hotel stuff knocking my door very strongly. they said open the door, open the door. After I opend they said pay us $100 for smoking cigarette but I was not smoking in the room. They said they smelled smoke from down stairs(1st floor) but I was 3 rd floor, is it poosible? I felt they just tried to get my money. I felt very bad how they came and demand my money. What do you think about this?

Cheap and cheerful
I enjoyed my stay. It is simple and basic hotel for my first night in Latvia and it suited me well - somewhere I could arrive near midnight, sleep and eat a reasonable breakfast. Basic, cheap, and in a strange way fascinating for a night in a new country
