    The hotel is very nice with good location : close to the city centre,big shopping malls,airport and Jurmala (sea resort). The price for the room and food at breakfast are excellent.Will stay next time I come to Riga.

    I don`t like that TV channels are very limited...only 5 or 6.

    Fabulous

    Comfortable room, good parking, close to airport

    Checkout took very long, around 15 minutes, while another employee was sitting behind in the office, asked him to help because it took so long. Came back next day for a lunch, and had one hour, it took them one hour to prepare the starter, which was a cold one. Than had the club sandwich as take away because of a lack of time because of flying. While only three other guests in the room... Could on both occassions be a lot faster done. But very good hotel!!!

    Perfect place if you need to reach airport. Excellent design, good food, clean room. Staff trained, communicable.

    Parking could be better. Even you paid for whole day, you have 15 min to drive out. Of not, have to come back to reception to change parking ticket. Inconvenient.

    The hotel is located between the Riga central and the airport, to take the bus number 22 to the bus-stop by walk +- 3 minutes. The good design with the modern facilities (especially the sound-proof) and the delicious breakfast, very comfortable!

We planned to find smth in Jurmala first, but when stayed at the Elefant hotel, decided to stay there further.. 10 minuts to the old Riga-city, 15 minuts to thу Jurmala seaside.. )) I liked everything there.
