                It was close to the city, that was the best thing with the hotel

                for those who are looking for a balance between location price and confort, this hotel is a great deal

                in the summer is too hot inside

              • Single
                6.6

                Reasonable price; Spacious room; It felt safe with a 24h guard in the lobby; Exchange bureau within the hotel; Pretty receptionists; Good breakfast.

                Breakfast exactly the same each morning, which is not nice if you stay for 10 nights; My glass in the hotel room was not washed/changed every day; All receptionists were not good in English; It is a shame that Internet is so expensive in this hotel.

              • Single
                7.8

                Safe, clean, good breakfast, economical.

                Wi-fi cost was 7 latys/hour, which I find unreasonable.

                Nice location close to the central railway station and a Mc Café across the street serving excellent coffee.

                The sheets on the bed are not wide enough to cover 2 people, luckily for us the weather was good.

                location near the station

                Room very hot, even with use of fan provided (no air con) which we need to have on all night. Can open window but there is traffic noise.

                Very close to the railway terminal and all the city sights. Nice and welcoming personnel. Bathroom facilities are quite adequate.

                One should always ask for rooms facing the inner court - rooms facing the streets are extreemely hot and noisy. No chance to keep windows open even at night, the noise is terrible. No central ventilation and air conditioning. Small double rooms are poorly furnished and fit for a short stay only - there is no wardrobe, no shelves, no storage place watsoever. Two thirds of the tabe are occupied by a huge old-fashioned TV set. Breakfasts are poor - same choice throuhout the week, no yoghurts or any other dairy products except for cheese.
