Gundi was a very nice host. It was always possible to ask questions about Riga, bars, reataurants ... via WhatsApp an Gundi helped very fast and very friendly! Thank you very much for my great first RBNB adventure!
Гунди очень гостеприимная и приветливая хозяйка. Мы получили качественные рекомендации, куда пойти и что посмотреть. Квартира находится в хорошем районе: 12 минут пешком от вокзала и 10 минут пешком от старого города, рядом прекрасный парк и много вкусных мест разной ценовой категории. Сама квартира просторная, стильная и уютная. Окна выходят во двор и можно наслаждаться видом рижских крыш. Очень рекомендую!
L'appartement est tres bien placé, au coeur de l'animation et à 5mn à pied de la vieille ville. Il a en plus été entièrement rénové et est tres agréable. Gundi nous a réservé un très bon accueil et nous a donné plein d'informations pour notre séjour à Riga!
Je recommande fortement ;)
Gundi was very nice and helpful. The apartment has been recently renovated, and is in a really great, central location.
We didn't meet Gundi, but she perfectly organized out check in and check out. The location of Gundis place is really great: It is in the city center. It close to the train station and the airport can be easily reached by a shuttle bus. This big benefit makes up for the bad condition of the sanitary facilities, which are going to be renovated soon!
Really nice place in the very center of Riga. Though we only met Gundi once, she found the time to make sure that everything was alright. We definitely recommend the place!
Gundi was an excellent host! She help me a lot about Riga and also about Sigulda, a little town near Riga very beautiful. Her house is very well located, close to the Old Town, in a main street. The room was big enough and the bed was great, I slept very well!
The rest of the house is now under renovation, I'm sure Gundi get to leave the house very nice :) The apartment is on the sixth floor with no elevator, but no problem for a traveler adapted to all.
