                The hotel is not far from the airport which makes it very convinient for an overnight stop.

              • Single
                9.6

                Perfect location for travellers to the Airport.Good reataurant. Perfect breakfast.

                The waitress in the reataurant could have smiled a little.

              • Single
                9.2

                Location that is close to the airport (less than 10 minutes away by taxi). However, the hotel is very pleasant anyway although a bit far from the city for those who want to explore the centre.

                Nice, new, lovely garden, polite service, good location in relation to Riga Airport

                Comfort, cosiness, good kitchen. Charming the personnel.

                5 leti by taxi from the airport (5-10'), same distance to the city center. Quiet, modern, nice staff, I used loudry and breakfast buffet. Just crossing the road there is a bus stop and you can reach the city in 5' by bus at 0,70 leti. Good air conditioning.

                In the morming, during breakfast, airconditioning exagerated.. freezing!

              • Single
                9.6

                Staff was very knowledgable about city & eager to help. Hotel built approx 2008 and has seen very little traffic - everything seemed essentially new in summer 2010. Hotel design is smart and modern.

                This hotel is in an area barron of other interests. If you want to reach this hotel from the city you can take taxi or bus 53. It is convenient to the airport: 7 or 10 minute taxi ride.

                9.2

                Interior design and very tasty breakfast.

                8.8

                Excellent price for the Quality of the Hotel! Large rooms with 4 Star amenities. Central location between Airport and City!

                Breakfast not up to 4 Star Standard! Hotel is very dark because of Design but ore light could be helpful

                Clean, new hotel, friendly staff, good breakfast

                Too expensive parking lot. For visitors this should be with more reasonable price. Anyway this is not city center...

              • Group of friends
                10.0

                Stayed at Elefant Hotel for 1 night, everything was great, the stuff is friendly and very responsible for the requests of the client. Very good location in 5minutes from Airport riga, 15min to Riga Center by taxi - around 7eur. And about 20 minutes from the city of Jurmala, so the location was really nice, was in the same destination from the places I needed to visit those days. Really nice and comfortable hotel for adequate price!

                6.2

                The overcrowded restaurant at the breakfast time. The personnel did not clean the tables and the guests had to do it themselves in order to take a sit at the table. It was awful. The people were upset and disapponted about it. Moreover there were no clean flatware provided. We had to seek for the personel for a long time in order to get the flatware to eat. It was unpleasant.
