About this listing
A very modern and attractively designed apartment with a splendid location – this is what I can offer you with the Embassy Quarter apartment.
This comfy flat will be a perfect home-away for 2 guests. It is composed of a bedroom connected with a living room, a kitchenette and a bathroom and separate WC. The apartment is furnished with furniture up with latest trends. There is also a free wifi internet access and plasma TV screen with DVD player.
The neighborhood is often regarded to as the quiet centre and it is famous for its Art Novea architecture. This area is also home for many embassies. One of the best restaurants for fine dining "Vincents" is literally around the corner. Both grocery store and coffee shop are based in the same building. Old Town with buzzing night life is in only 15 min walking distance.
Strictly no smoking and no pets. This is quite neighborhood so please respect this by refraining from playing loud music after 10 pm. This is also not the place for any kind of parties.
My wife and I stayed at this wonderful apartment for one month over June 2015.
The apartment is situated in a gated apartment block, in a very safe and beautiful part of Riga. The apartment is situated back from the road, with windows facing a courtyard, so there is no road noise. There is everything you need for a short or long stay.
It is close enough to walk into Central Station or the Old Town, or there are buses and trolley buses less than 2 minutes walk away. There are beautiful parks close by, and a large Rimi supermarket 10 minutes walk away, where you can buy a great selection of food or drink.
A small Maxi supermarket and coffee shop is on the street just outside the apartment.
We were met by Robert's delightful father. The apartment was clean and comfortable. There are no noisy or unruly neighbours. The yard and stairwells are clean.
The apartment is on the 3rd floor, and there is a lift if necessary.
My wife and I went on many walks and visited the many local cafes, which served delicious and inexpensive meals. Nearby at Antonijas iela is the cafe, the Flying Frog. Great pork ribs and a rack of lamb that melts in your mouth.
Everything is within easy walking distance, and a car is not necessary.
To get from the airport, the 22 bus to the Central Markets, and then bus 2 to just near the apartment.
After staying for one month, the apartment felt like home.
We were very sad to leave, but hope to return.
If you wish to visit Riga, this apartment is highly recommended. There are no negatives.
We had a fantastic time in the apartment. Everything about the apartment is as described on-line but maybe even better. The size, location, furniture, decoration of the apartment are all excellent. We did not meet Robert, only his father but all communication before arrival and arrangements for collecting and returning keys and accessing the apartment worked perfectly.
I would happily recommend the apartment to anyone and hope to be able to stay there next time I'm in Riga.

Nice appartment next to some of the most striking Riga Art Nouveau buildings. Only problem was that we could not get Robert to respond and to confirm the check-in meeting on time. Luckily his father was there :-) !
Spacious apartment located in a good place. Liked the design. Robert and his father were nice and helpful hosts. Would recommend.

- Spacious, located in safe area
- Robert's Dad was v friendly
- Bed is uncomfortably hard and bedding is cheap material
- No shampoo - this has been provided at all other (and cheaper) airbnb stays
