Kristine met us at the apartment and was very welcoming and friendly. The apartment is located in the old town, everything was walkable and was only a 2 minute walk to one of the main squares in Riga.
The cave itself was as shown in the pictures, it was a little hard to adjust to the lack of light but obviously we expected that because of it being a cave! We would recommend taking some jumpers with you, it is a little cold and damp in the cave. There wasn't enough hot water in the tank for both of us to take a shower so maybe bare that in mind too and make it short!
The apartment has a real novelty factor and Kristine's communication was fantastic all throughout, overall we would recommend Kristine's apartment!
This is such a special place to stay.
All communication before was smooth, easy and informative.
The place is absolutely stunning and unique. Everything you could possibly need is provided and thought about. The location is brilliant, just a short walk to the centre of the old city. Kristine was there to greet us and explain everything we needed to know.
It was a fabulous place to stay, completely recommended.
Kristine is a nice and helpful person. She answered my question so efficiency and even pick us up near the apartment when we got lost with the taxi driver. The location is excellent and just a minute by walk to the old town. The decoration in the apartment is very special and unique. It's a great experience to stay in this apartment. Highly recommend this apartment and Kristine to others.
My stay at the magic cave was, just as the name describes, magical!! I had the pleasure of meeting Kristine upon my arrival and she was more than accommodating and hospitable! The house looks just like the pictures and was such an interesting environment to stay in that really enhanced my time in Riga! A huge thank you to Kristine for putting so much work into this beautiful home!
Very good location near old town and political district. The basement is exactly what it looks like on the pictures. I only met Kristine briefly at the end of my stay. She has been very correct and helpful via phone and web though. Very clean, nice 'historical' place at top location. Excellent WiFi and no noise. Perfect as I was there for business and private reasons.
Kristine was fantastic! She was always connected with us if we had questions and was quick to respond. Her Cave is amazing! It had such an authentic feel and was very homey with the fireplace. The location is perfect if you want to visit Old Riga. She was very helpful with advice for the city and new every answer to every question we asked. The apartment is very big and there is plenty of room. The apartment is pretty dark and can get chilly, but that is to be expected while you live in a cave. It was a great experience and I would recommend anyone to stay here :)
Kristine was a wonderful host. We felt very welcome in her "Magic Cave" which is perfect for two persons. Wifi and the facilities were good – the radiators and the chimney produced a pleasant warmth.
Checkout time was very flexible: It was no problem to checkout at 4pm because our late flight.
Would highly recommend a weekend stay at Kristines apartment. Thank you/Paldies, Kristine!
