hotel staff very helpful, room, showers, toilet always clean. would stay there again.
People working there are very nice and helpful. My room was really clean and tidy.
near central city, not expensive, clean, cozy.
I'd like hospitality of staff! friendly relation. very kind and much smile, it's so much pleasure! and always clean! very old washed off bed-clothes =(
A lot of interesting people All good
Greate place, nice and helpful staff, good breakfast. Very close to center. Thin walls.
Especially I liked the design of the hotel. Ana a kichen also :o) No mirrows in the room.
The staff were really friendly. Location was good and traffic didn't bother us at night. It was certainly worth the money we paid - or a little more. The bed wasn't comfortable and there was some mildew in the bathroom.
The location was great, the facilities were nice, the staff was always there to help. Everything seemed fine for the price. I didn't try the breakfast because the kitchen was too busy.
Very helpfull and friendly staff, clean and comfortable room, free coffee, tea and lots of games :) Nothing
It is pretty cheap The sound insulation was virtually non-existant. I slept very poorly for one night because my neighbour was slamming his door and fiddling with its lock.
No noize from the trains at all. Free computer with Internet in the Kitchen. No owen in the kitchen.
The hotel was difficult to find.
We appreciated especially the friendliness which we met in hotel.I Also liked a lot that rooms had been renovated quite recently,every room in little different style,but it´s still pretty fine.(quite new furnitures etc.) The fascade and corridors look little old,but it´s little charming. (In my mind) a good shopping center (Elvi) 2 mins driving distance from Hotel.In Hotel you can order dinner too,but there´s also super price-quality place in this shopping center. This is not concerning direct Hotel. But because I am a longterm Travel agent, I think now also Hotel´s best intrests.From the main road (a7) there should albolutely be some kind of sign with name or at least sign HOTEL.They loose this way also so many bypassing clients.(!) This Hotel is only 4 mins from Via Baltica road! (A7 road to Riga direction)
Don't let the looks fool you, this is is a nice, clean and friendly small hotel. They even keep the restaurant open after the hours, if you need it and the service is very friendly in Latvian standards. Room is basic. Hotel is in a quiet neighbourhood. Not too easy to find since there is no 'hotel' sign! The street names are poorly marked. Ask local people for directions.
This Hotel is truly dreadful.Dark, dingy, mucky.We had noise all night, with some unidentified people coming and going,despite the Hotel being empty of other guests, and a tiny dirty room.The staff were surly,and the room smelled of cigarettes,despite asking for a non-smoking room.The bedding was nasty and inadequate,the beds spongey, and the sheet didn't even fit the bed.The bed clothes and pillows smelled of cigarettes.The teenage girl they left in charge of the place couldn't even do the 1 job she'd been left with,to wake us at 7 am for a flight. Luckily,some people had kept us awake all night anyway so we managed to make the breakfast,but that was disgusting?Nothing hot,even the coffee was cold.Don't waste your money here. rooms disgusting,staff useless,and surly,dirty,dark,overpriced,cigarette smells,noisy,disgusng breakfast,they didn't even have any coffee,whatever you do don't stay here,it is more like a dreadful hostel for young offenders
The staff was friendly. Noisy outside and the bathroom was small. No chairs to sit in, only a mattress in a box that cut into your legs.
Nice hotel staff, room was clean and comfortable, quiet location not very far away from Riga. Free safe parking. Breakfast was a bit too late for me. It starts at 8:30
Large clean homy rooms for reasonable price nothing
the reception has the problem.When we arrived the hotel at 21:00, Nobody was found ,the telephone was also not reached.we waited for nearly one hour in front of door of the hotel.
The hotel was located near the most popular night club (Piens) in Riga. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. We were travelling with four girls and we liked this hotel very much.
place and forest around the hotel. beach is not far from. rooms are very little
Good location, nice staff Nothing special
Sadly one night stop over for the second time.
Hotel was very quiet during night (off season),bed was excellent :-) Hotel bar staff was very slow even there weren't many customers. Location is far away from the centre of the village. Hotel staff wasn't helpful and they weren't very happy to serve in english.
It is a perfect place for stay with children, very quiet and very close to the beach. The food is nice and healthy, suits for children perfectly. For those who are looking for entertainment, it is a bit far away from the centre, a good 30-minute walk, but you can make it both through the town and along the sea, so it is very enjoyable.
our tourists were happy to stay in the hotel, thank U/
Love it. Very clean, comfortable room. Beautiful envinroment. Excellent food. Nothing.
It was quiet and a very relaxing environment. The staff all spoke very good English. The food was tasty and plentiful with a good variety of options. The location was fantastic. We were charged 5 lats for tea with our evening meal. Tea and coffee should be readily available and part of the buffet evening service (as it is part of the breakfast service. )
Excellent staff, very attentive and efficient. Nice location, a little bit far from the centre but suited purpose of our stay. Room was quite small (we booked one with the terrase). Noticed some strange smell in the bathroom (kind of excessive humidity or smth).
Good location. Nice new hotel. Clean rooms. Rooms very small. We booked a terrace room but on arrival were given a standard room without terrace, with no apology or explanation.
The location of the hotel (close to the beach and in the middle of a pine's forrest), the breakfast (fresh, abudant and natural food) , the decoration (armonic with the hotel style) and the indoor swimming pool (with very well selected relaxing music) are by far the strongest points of this hotel. The room size was about 15-20 sq. meters, not as big as we expected; the women's russian bath was temporarily closed due to technical reasons and the table tennis was available only during 2 hours per day. Also we got a room in the ground level with a big window to a public (but quiet) street, so people could see inside the room when we had the curtains opened.
Quiet and perfect location for a weekend break. By the beach and everything your need at the hotel. Fantastic spa-treatment, friendly staff, breakfast was great and the rooms very comfortable. 3 min walk from the train station. A lobby-bar would be nice..
The friendliness of staff. The food was excellent particularly the wide choice at breakfast
Excellent staff, very nice design of the rooms. Hotel's location is perfect - abaout 3-4 min to the beach. Everything was ok in this hotel, I woud like come back again:-)
personal,spa, nature there was no children place in the hotel.
I only think that it is not worth of the money 138euro per night. there is only small russia bath, women and men separently. And the swimming pool. I don't like it. If you want to enjoy facilities, I don't recommend this hotel.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Superb and very personal customer service. Extremely delicious breakfast with a personal touch. Very conveniently located close to the beach and pine forest. Quiet location. Bathroom floor can be cleaned a bit better. (Beach) sand could still be found on the edges after cleaning.
Nice room and many facilities in the hotel
Parking place wasnt´t safe. Somebody tried to break in to our car. There was no swimming pool for small children.
Nice staff which speaks different languages. Clean. Free parking. Free Internet which works well. Fair breakfast. It is really just a place to sleep not really a Hotel to its full extent.
Helpful staff and nice rooms.Good public transports, only twenty minutes to city center.
Excellent room and bathroom. Friendly staff. Simple but very good breakfast. Although the walls are surprisingly thin for this brand new building, there was absolutely no noise, from the hotel itself or the street(s) outside. You need to use some form of transport between the hotel and city center, but the public transport is good and easy to use. Buses stop 100-200m from the door. I would have liked to see a small fridge in my room.
An excellent small hotel in a nice quiet location
kindness of staff, breakfast noisy parking at night in front of hotel entrance (during one night, a car had its engine running idle for at least 4 hours!)
Staff Too hard bed. No lamp for reading in the bed.
Small nonexpencive quiet friendly hotell disdance to center of town, can be in future some shuttle bus center
Extremely helpful hotel staff, free parking , clean rooms ,silent place, formula track was near. breakfast assortment was too little
cosy hotel.Nice room don`t have hot breakfest buffet
Location on the main street in Riga. Helpful staff. Big shopping center nearby. Good public transport connection to the city center. Nice rooms. Small old-fashioned TV. Cituated in living area, with windows facing neighboring houses.
The breakfast was great!
Staff, cleanness, breakfast Lack of elevators
Pernavas street is a very busy street throughout the night, even weekend nights, and makes very much noise in the room which resulted in a sleepless night. Very noisy street, indeed. Very noisy.
Booked a room for two and got one that would accommodate at least four guests!
Price Too far from city center for my needs.
room service is very slow, the first time they just forgot to pass on our order...
Price-quality ratio was excellent. The hotel and the room we had were clean and comfortable. The breakfast was the suprisingly excellent - they had a wide collection of everything. The location was better as we had expected as the trams came almost non-stop and took only a few minutes to the centrum. The staff was very friendly, too. Good parking area. Only as we called to the hotel for the first time, a man who answered was not a good customer servant and unfortunately gave therefore a bad and not correct image of the hotel. The only bad thing during our staying was the massage I took in the hotel. I couldn't enjoy it as the woman massaged with her knuckles and it hurted almost all the time. My muscles were sore for many days after the massage. In a luxury hotel, I would expect that the massager would have a proper education and touch.
We like the location of the hotel, good public transport to the old city, to the beach and the airport. Clean room, good bed, shower very fine, nice free view. Good reception. There is always some noise, like the airconditioning and air-refreshing in the bathroom.
Hotel staff and their concern. Standart room and the wardrobe are so small. Foods for the breakfast can be better.
Brekfast service Lobby bar, not enough comfortable
position. helpful staff in reception bar and ground floor restaurant rather dark and lacking in atmosphere.
Lacation, ease of access, secure parking
Good atmosphare, pleasent staff. All was nice. Fitness centre was under reconstruction
Large room, free breakfast, and free parking--gotta love that. The bed was so squeaky that we couldn't get to sleep for all the noise and our laughing. Get a new box spring, for heaven's sake!
Location - near supermarket Rimi which was opened 9-23. Good breakfasts, Russian speaking reception. Good and clean room. The kitchen with dishes and refrigerator on the shared territitory. It's too noisy if you have some neighbours.
Friendly staff The pillows could be better
Location and non standard approach for the very hotel, it is actually placed an few appartments of old house in the center of Riga Parking, there is no parking near the hotel. Neither paid nor free. Nearest paid parking is in 1 block away from hotel, it is not secured - you are leaving car on the street actually, it is expensive and the worst thing: you should pay in advance by coins (!!!). no paper bills are accepted by machine. You can imagine how is it - just arrived to the country and you should have enouth coins to pay for the 1-2 days of parking :) Moreover, when I just found the hotel and have parked in front of it to carry my bags in ... I have got a parking fine check for 10 Ls (~14eur) immediately. Nice
The room was clean. Although the breakfast wasn't bad, it could have been better.
Location-quality-price is good for "budget" traveler Room was slightly cold despite the heating system was working.
central could be friendlier
The location, lack of noise, friendliness of the staff An elevator would have been useful. The selection of TV channels was far too Russian.
close to City centre, good value for money, I paid only 23 euro for night, not bad. It is what it is, it is not 5 star hotel.
Very good central location. Department store accross the street, many stores all around. Tram stop nearby. Backyard view good for silence. Few people at the breakfast room. One has to take into consideration that the building has no elevator.
Value for money Nothing
It was close to the city, that was the best thing with the hotel U needed to pay extra when u left your luggage. Internet shouldnt cost that much.
staff was very helpful and spoke english there was no bar or in house disco
The location was great,close to all transport links,easy to get from the airport. It's no smoking area anywhere in the hotel,so you have to go outside all the time. The staff is not very helpful.the room was very dirty,the carpet had a lot of stains from wine and other things on it!the shower room smelled of dumpiness.had a room for two and found it very small even for one person. The breakfast is ok,but coffee is not good.
I didn't expect my room to be so tiny!!!! And also there was this weird smell in my room. When I asked if ther is an air-conditioner in my room, the receptionist said that in 3star hotels there are no airconditioning. Oh, come on!!! Really?? Since when??? In the States I stayed at the hotels with either 2 stars or no stars at all, and they all had air-conditioning and the rooms were much more comfortable with more amenities.
Good hotell. The location is really great - right near the rail and the bus station. Basic but clean rooms, good breakfast. Staff was helpful and spoke good English and Russian. Parking across the street. Security guard and the reception girl looked tired and bored :(
location The room was cold
The location was excellent Choice at breakfast could have been better
Super situation just in the middle of the centre of Riga! Nice, comfortable and clean room. Excellent breakfast - a little bit russian style, which means that it was better than average!
Position is good, near the train/bus station and the city center. Breakfast was rich.
Good WiFi Employees at Reception were very nice Really close the mainstation (train and bus), shops, malls and the old town of riga Shower was broken ; flooded the entire bathroomfloor. Breakfast was terrible Room looks very old, very sovjetstyle( (... if you like it) Minibar was empty
Central location, reasonably clean room and nice bathroom The fridge/mini-bar was noisy and it was not so easy to sleep with it humming away. They didn't give me a receipt and I had to pay cash on the first night because their card machine had broken down.
Everything was perfect
Good price, given location, space and cleanliness. Good breakfast as well. It was a bit of a hike (~15 mins walking) from center of Old Town
Helpful staff, especially gent in breakfast room. Location further from centre than what we thought.
Its really a very good Hotel in value for money. All stories about far from city centres are not understandable. Its les then 15 minutes walking.
Breakfast was good enough.
Check in efficient, breakfast, cleanliness, bed & linens, friendly staff. Tv slow to respond. No WiFi in rooms. No table space to put anything anywhere in the toilet. Please put some clothes hooks on wall in the toilet.
Good Hotel to stay with children.Very tasty and various breakfast.Not far from old town. Nice staff.
where good for this price Yes,i do.
Nice room. Parking is a joke! You can only fit three cars into the parking lot, if you squeeze in five, the last two have to drive out to let the remaining cars out. I ended up parking on the street instead.
The design of the rooms was magnificent. Breakfast was also great.
High quality of design of rooms and materials used enhancced by the friendly and professional staff. Leaving
Wonderfully designed, very friendly staff, fantastic breakfast, pets welcome
The hotel had a very cozy design in common areas and in the rooms. The design of the studios (apartments) are a bit better, especially in the bathrooms. Free and fast wifi is a plus. The parking space is right across the hotel, however I have never managed to understand whether it is free or not. There are no signs or neither parking machines. The stuff is friendly and I have my 4 shirts ironed for free. The breakfast is good - nice break and choice of 4 hot dishes all nice. The main entrance is open only during the hours when the restaurant is open - 16-00 till 22-00. All the other time you have to go through the back door and see the garage and trashcans. It is hard to believe but the hotel has only 3(three) TV channels - 2 music and CNN. The proximity of main road (5 meters) and railway (40 meters) can be really annoying, especially at night.
Everything was perfect. The receptionist was friendly and made us feel like at home. We didn't want to leave this hotel, it is very cosy. I think we will come back to his hotel. Thank you for pleasant stay!
Everything was clean, they had aircondition on the rooms, nice bathrooms. The dinner meny was not so good but the waitres was very nice and profesional. On a scale from 0-6, and 6 is the best, I will give them 5. To close to the mainroad. To few guests using the restaurant fasilities.
It was fantastic weekend in Jurmala, and the hotel we liked too: unusual modern design, excellent restaurant, so cosy and made with love, nice staff, good breakfeast small room
We really liked the excellent accommodation and particularly the friendly, efficient and welcoming staff. Highly recommended as a family hotel very close to the main amenities and beach and also very convenient for visiting Riga. Valensija represents very good value for money and caters for all budgets. Nothing to mention.
Restored villa Location - close to the main road and railways, much noise especially in the morning. No wireless internet available.
The room was nice and clean, the breakfasts were rather tasty and the staff was willing to help.
Location of the hotel It was not always very clean and the personnel was a bit lost with rather simple tasks, such as calling a taxi.
Good location, good internal area Located near railway, WIFI only in reception area, no payments by credit card
A building which is nice from the outside but doesn't quite deliver from the inside. Not by any standard worthy of four stars
Breakfast was exellent. Location great. Dinner was good value for money. Personnel was friendly and helpfull. There was bad smell in the room. The carpet on the stair was a bit dirty.
Loved the breakfast Brochure promised a minibar and bath tub - they were nowhere in sight. Poor air conditioning. And why do you have to ask for toilet paper?
perfect location , exelent staff it wasn,t good enought for price, as a spa it wasn,t included to price, bedding wasn,t changed in 3 days and it,s quite old hotel for 4 stars!!!!! need renovation
only location it's called boutique spa.... well, nothing of that kind actually
bathroom was nice I could hear people talking in the next room.Room was cold.I didnt like the atmosphere
Combination of different high level services (managing staff, SPA facilities, comfort of the rooms, excellent location near the beach, Jurmala main pedestrian street and concert hall, excellent restorant with live music, sometimes also during the breakfast) for reasonable prises , probably is the best in Jurmala. Especially I would like to thank hotel manager Ludmila for excellent organisation of the work ! Inn double room beds must be double, but not twin
The location was good. Poor staff, bad spa. bad managment.
Staff hosptality, meals at restaurant, spa - centre.
big room, broad beds, good conveniences bad food on the breakfast, noise from refrigeration unit fixed close our window
night party, candy on the bed low temperature, shower room
I was alone in 15-bed room =) Friendly staff, best location. i liked it
The rooms was spacious and a pretty good standard for a hostel. The location was excellent. We had a couple of problems with the hostel. Firstly, the hot water ran out after one use (a problem in a room designed for 4 people). Also the breakfast was pretty much some left out cerreal and milk. But then you can't expect much more from a hostel.
Amazing hotel with excllent stuff
friendly staff, central location, tidy rooms, cozy place other patrons were very noisy having party all night when other people tried to sleep.
Staff was excellent. Entrance has bad reputation neibours and looks suspitiosly at the beggining.
The politeness of the staff and an excellent location in the centre of the city
Exelent location in Old Riga. Good price! Bad mattress.
Good! Bar downstairs!!
New hotel, near beach Car repair near, far by foot from center of Jurmala
It was quite far from the center of Jurmala, however, that was clearly mentioned on the description of the hotel
Excellent location - 5 min walk to the beach. Very friendly and helpfull staff, very good breakfast, comfortable room (we had family room for 4 people)
well designe room and very spacious.----made you feel good no soap holder in shower
Everything was perfect!
Access to the sauna and the fresh abundant breakfast and colourful eating area and free internet in lobby area. It was also very convenient to the 3T/3B tram line and the Rock Church and only a short walk from the bus/train station..
Door lock. Nothing more. Location is very close to the seacost, but it is everywhere in Jurmala. Regular price is overvalued. Off season price is more or less real for this hotel. Hotel is useful only for car travelers to stay one night during your journey.
Incredibly friendly staff (thanks again, Indra!), very calm, cute location and clean cheerful rooms.
Hotel staff, car parking, shop at the same building is very comfortable. Breakfast is ok, maybe it should have more hot meal., but anyway I liked it. No Internet.
Personal i raspolozenie. Predlozenij net -vsjo OK.
Nice clean rooms, well-situated hotel close to the sportscenter and lake To have breakfast was not possible. At least they could have recommended the sportscenter, which was very close
lake view, quiet the price charged should have included breakfast
environment is good. Poor indication of road sign. old communist style
Location, and basic services were good. The room was well-equipped. Beautiful view of the lake at sunrise. The hotel was difficult to find and lacked a welcoming feeling. Staff spoke no English and did little beyond the absolute necessary to serve us. Room had limited window shades--when the sun came up, so did we.
Excellant location for sports. Beautiful location opposite lake. Comfortable and clean. Friendly and helpful staff. Good value for money.
quiet - situation in riga -
Even with limited English the staff were very friendly and helpful, especially the young lady in the cafe/bar. Some of the rooms have been updated, others not. There could have been more detail about that on the website. But the (old decor and fittings but otherwise clean) room was acceptable for the price and location.
big comfortable room, good polite stuff
It is easy to find; the staff is very competent; the rooms are big and the cleanliness is excellent. The parking place is big enough. Summa summarum: real value for money.
Real good room with refrigerator Could not pay with Mastercard by departure, so we had to find at bank to get cash. That was inconvienient and resaultet in ekstra costs!
The convenience of transport. It was very hot and the room didn't have air conditioning.
We stayed in October it was cold. The heating didn't work. Great location close to Arena Riga.
fine room is too small.
Good location and good rooms considering how cheap it was. Specially best when you need to visit Arena Riga (we did)..its just around corner. With taxi to center/old town 3-4 LVL (7-10$) when you order from receptionist. Free parking in fenced area and free wireless internet. Be careful with warm water as there are boilers in every room and it can be empty if one person takes shower too long (however doesnt happen when you are aware about it and use it reasonable). Bad coffee in breakfast, but maybe its temporarely as they were renovating their restaurant. Receptionist considered it is wise to call to our room 11 in morning and let us know check out is 12...
Although it was a few tram stops from the city, there were good facilities in the neighbourhood. Excellent supermarket, corner store and restuarant Only one small thing I ate in their dining room one night and two woman were having a drink and smoking. This stopped me eating there again Disappointing as their restuarant is good
Clean, comfortable room Staff unfriendly
Resturant and bar within hotel, easy to use Thought that the breakfast selection was very poor. No fresh rolls or coissants. Only sliced bread. Selection of items was poor.
