On my recent trip to Riga, Latvia I chose to stay at the Radisson BLU Elizabete Riga hotel. I am a fan of Radisson BLU hotels, and Radisson has four Riga hotels to choose from, all with great locations. I picked the Radisson BLU Elizabete for it’s, modern feel and easy access.
The Radisson BLU Elizabete Riga hotel is located a 10 minute walk from the old town through the park across from the hotel (the park where you will find the fantastic resturant Biblioteka N°1), and about 15 minutes from the main bus/train station. The staff are efficient and get the job done well, there is a lack of warmth but anyone who has been to the more eastern parts of Europe will be familiar with this.
I stayed in a business class room which has the same layout as the standard room, it is a good size room with all the conveniences expected of a modern hotel room such as full-size mirrors, flat screen TV, free wifi, good lighting, as well as thoughtful designs features such a place for your luggage in a handy spot between the bathroom area and bedroom allowing for access from both, a comfortable work space, and adjustable bedside lights. The business class room comes with upgrades such as bathrobes, slippers, a Nespresso machine, and includes breakfast. The room was comfortable, quite, and the heating/cooling system worked well without being too loud.
The breakfast is served in the Restaurant C.U.T which is a bright stylish room. Breakfast is well stocked with lots of variety, cereal, bread, toast, lots of pastries, fruit, yogurt, meat and cheese, as well as a good selection of hot items. There should be no problem for anyone to find something to fill up on at the Radisson Blue Elizabete breakfast. The items were kept well stocked and the tables and food areas were kept immaculately tidy as people came and went.
When it came time to depart I was sad to leave the comfort of my room, and check out like check in was done easily and quickly. I wouldn’t hesitate recommending the Radisson BLU Elizabete hotel to anyone heading to Riga it is a great hotel, spotless, modern, comfortable and a great place to come back to after a day of business or sightseeing and relax.http://eepurl.com/dmd1g” type=”icon” icon=”mail”] Sign up here for weekly updates from Bluenose Girl.[/button]
