We werden vriendelijk ontvangen door de zus van Baiba met appelwijn en omdat ik had verteld dat mijn vriend jarig was geweest, stond er heerlijke taart klaar.
Het appartement ziet er super netjes en leuk uit en ligt op loopafstand van het oude centrum (zo'n 2,5 kilometer). Baiba was zelf op vakantie, maar toch altijd bereikbaar voor vragen.
Wij zouden deze accommodatie zeker adviseren aan anderen!
You immediately feel at home when you arrive in this cozy place. The bottle of wine was a very kind gesture and tasted great. Ivar helped us out with parking the car and discussing some restaurant options. Riga is an amazing city, definitely worth a visit and then I would recommend this place to stay.
I really loved my stay at Baiba's place. I had all the quiet hours I needed to finish up some writing I was doing and the room was great. Baiba and her husband were also helpful in recommending places to visit and helped with directions whenever I needed. I'd really recommend that anyone visiting Riga stay there. :-)
Baiba's apartment is beatiful and cosy and she is a very nice person. You will feel like home there. I recommend this place to make your stay in Riga more pleasant.

I love cycling, every time I am on my bike, it makes me smile. Fashion is my passion too and I am sewing for myself and my friends. I also like cooking and go to restaurants.
I agree that travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer. I love it!!!
