    Location

    We booked 3 month ago a superior double or twin room, inspired by the nice photo from the web. In reality, our room was not superior, unfriendly,with small window and tiny bathroom. In fact there are only 2 superior twin rooms and we did not get the nice one.

    Superb

    Very quiet and very close to city centre, a pleasant historic building ,recently refurbished. Have kept some of the old buidling walls as feature- very well done. Well cooked food in restaurant at good price, Breakfast & Dinner was excellent. Bar staff very accommodating & flexible. Security is good with front door manned most of the day/evening. Free Wi-fi! A 5 minute walk to the major square where all the restaurants & action is! Live music, etc.,

    Nothing really of note- but No coffee or tea facilities in the room but coffeee served all day in bar area. If you have a car you will find parking an issue. Rigi is a pleasure to walk around!

    Very good

    Quiet whilst in central location.

    Cleanliness of bathroom. Black mould growing on shower/bathroom units. We booked 2 rooms and both rooms had same problem. I'm afraid they have let themselves down on this.

    Friendly and helpfull staff Very good breakfast Comfortable location Interesting design Good bar/restaurant in the hotel

    WI-Fi was available only in the lobby and breakfast room (it could be the problem is associated with particular rom - 105) On the other hand, in places where wi-fi was available it was rather fast.

    Very good

    Perfect location, very nice staff.

    Don't let the "boutique" in the name fool you. The hotel has no charm at all. At least not in the rooms located on the back building. Another problem is that they don't have central heat in the room, just a small radiator (upon request) not powerful enough against Riga's cold weather.

    Superb

    Superb location in the old town and not far from the railway station and autobus station. Very good breakfast with quality food (maybe too little choice of croissants and cakes). Confortable bed and modern design furniture.

    The breakfast room is not big enough. A kettle for tea/coffee in the room is missing.

  • 8.2
    Fabulous

    Location was very good - close to the Old Town but a 5-10 minute walk from the busy squares so still quite quiet. Room was modern with a good shower.

    Didn't have the real welcoming, friendly atmosphere of other small/boutique hotels I have used around the world - staff were efficient and pleasant, but the staff/customer relationship was more like in a huge 5-star hotel than a small boutique - does that make sense? No safe in the room.
