Would recommend this place for a nice and enjoyful time in Riga. The house was clean, with towels, dishes, sheets all in order. Location was very good as well, right in the heart of Old Town! Neighbourhood is quiet.
The apartment is located in the upper floor and there is no elevator, the stairs are designed absolutely bad, with a strong inclination so you will have a bit of hard time walking them.
Overall would say good experience.
Staying at Martin's apt. in Riga was great. The location is perfect, in walking distance from everything in the middle of the old town. The apartment is pretty, bright and has everything one could ask for. Dealing with Martin was easy, communications was prompt and friendly. We will definitely come again!
I can only comment on the host as there was an issue with the boiler in the apartment and we stayed in alternate accommodation in a neighbouring building that was all arranged without any kind of fuss by Martin (the alternate accommodation was more like a massive 5 star hotel suite so certainly no complaints about the change of plans from us!).
The apartment is very centrally located in the old town and near an overwhelming choice of restaurants and bars (there is an Irish bar at one end of the street and massive steak house on the square at the other so it is easy to get your bearings).
Martin was the perfect host and a credit to the whole Airbnb way of doing things. He was very communicative and an all round nice bloke. I would definitely recommend him to others without hesitation.
I really appreciate that you think I am an all round nice bloke. You are too! The apartment you stayed at we have for our relatives mainly when they come and visit. I'm glad you liked it.
The boiler problem in the other apartment is resolved and we ended up having to change the entire bathroom in the apartment. It was about time actually. We raised the ceiling, floor heating, new floor, new walls, new boiler :-) So now it is a brand new bathroom in that apartment. It turned out really nice!
The reservation was canceled 5 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Communication with the host was quick and pleasant. We were met by a lady called Rudīte who showed and explained us everything in the apartment. Its description and photos are accurate. The apartment is nice, clean and quiet. It has a truly great location in the very heart of the Old Town right next to the Līvu laukums (Livu Square) and very close to the Doma laukums (Dome Square), which are the two main squares, so all the places of interest are easily reachable on foot. But do not expect a wonderful view from the attic windows, because only other roofs and some parts of other buildings can be seen. The steep staircase with its narrow stairs may be a challenge for elderly people of for much luggage, because you need to climb to the fifth floor. But it was not a problem for us.
Amazing appartament in the heart of Old City. Elita & Martin have thought of every single detail to make the stay of their guests confortable. Up till now this has been the most positive Airbnb exerience!
