Staff was friendly and helpful. Besr part of the stay. The room was okay. Bed was hard...not my style. Shower pressure is great. The noise down the halls were by far the worse.

A good hotel with friendly and professional staff. Restaurant serves an acceptable variety of dishes - reasonably sized portions - and my room was clean and roomy. WI-Fi access easy and adequate for moderate use.

I needed a hotel in Riga near the airport to change flights, and the Best Western was a very good choice. There is an airport shuttle for only 5 Euros and they can pick you up from the airport. It was a good thing in late night. The hotel was very easy to check in and things were all in...

Fine for an overnight stay. Convenient airport shuttle, but NOT free as advertised. Room was clean, bed was comfortable (for one person). But towels were very thin. Breakfast was adequate and filling. Staff was friendly.

Be aware that the size of bed, 158cm wide; in a double room makes it impossoble to sleep. A rooom with a bed 158 cm wide is NOT a double room for two "ordinary" travellers!. My experience is that a doubel room have - at least- a King size bed!

Stay in this hotel was nice experience on my trip to Latvia. Located very close to airport is a good choice if you want to avoid traffic jams when rushing to catch a flight.

“Call ahead and ask for the corner room with the king size bed. We ate onsite and it was reasonable and very good.”

“If you can, try to ask for a room with a window that do not look on the entrance. Everyone looks at you when they are smoking outside. To avoid, you need to close all the curtains. Especially on the ground floor.”
