My first and hopefully last not positive experience of booking in Airbnb. I booked Warm and Sunny apartment mostly because I liked design on the photos, and this design in the reality was absolutely the same, so its ok. Studio apartment is cozy, nice, bright, but unfortunately it's the only advantage of the (website hidden) was a great surprise, after 17 hours of road to Riga, while taking shower to realise that there is no hot water (it was, but only just for 10-15 min).I called to Anna, and she came to flat very quickly (also thanks), but she said that it's very strange , she has no idea why it's happens and I should wait about 1 hour to warm water (there is water heater in bathroom). I waited, but even after 1 hour water becomes just a little bit warm and also just for 10 minutes....The next day I decided to "observe" and understand what's the time limit of taking shower (as hosts don't know about it, at least now I know and can say to other guests) - the limit of hot water in the flat - 20 minutes (it takes more 3 hours to heat water again).I tried it in different days, and always after 20 minutes of shower hot water is ended (seems that the water heater has such a low capacity). So if in the flat live 2 people - they will have just 10 minutes each for shower, and also notice that kitchen also have hot water from the same heater - so for washing dishes, clothes, shower, etc - you have 20 minutes in common. I don't think that it's normal situation for 21st century and think that its somthing about host should notice in advance, because for me this design has no sense without such vital things as water. Also, flat located 20-30 minutes on tram from city center, tram goes smath about 3-4 times a week and after 21 - it comes twice. till 23 - so after you will have take a taxi and in the evening also have to wait for a long for the rare tram...Despite of location, flat is not cheap (notice that in Riga everything is more cheaper than in the Western Europe), but not this apartment, so if you have a chance to book in advance - probably you will find more better cost/qualitylocation combination. Also (especially for people from Western Europe), it's better to check on (website hidden) maps how houses in this area outside looks like (for example Burtnieku iela street) - it's small, pretty old 2 floors house - where on 1st floor small cafe and on the second floor - few flats. For some people it can be shoking, and I felt myself not safe in such type of house. In every way I left flat clean and said thanks to the host - my comment was just to provide full information to the future quests, which hosts unfortunately didn't provide.
Very nice and helpful host. Clean and new apartment, exactly as described. Pizza place and bus station just around the corner - it takes about 15 - 20 min into the old town. Would do it again and can recommend it.
Conveniently located in front of the bus stop which takes you in 15 min to the city centre and nicely furnished inside...this cozy apartment is perfect for your visit to Riga!i recommend Anna,always available!:)
Awesome apartment! The room is sunny and very cozy. The apartment has everything you need for living and even more. Quiet and pleasant area, there is a bus stop one minute from the house, the bus goes to the center in 10-15 minutes. Right next to the house there is a pharmacy and grocery store.
Anna is a great hostess! Answered all my questions, was ready to help at any time, and even talk to me in Russian a little bit :)
Thank you so much! This was a wonderful week.
Anna's apartment is nicely appointed and immaculate. It was a pleasure staying there. Anna was quick to respond to all of my questions and even ordered a taxi for my last day.
There's a bus that leaves down the street into Old Town. It's a short ride and the return bus stops right in front of the building.
There's also two grocery stores within walking distance. One is about 1 minute away and the other is about 3 minutes away.

I love life! Everyday is a new experience! I love to help others and enjoy laughing and watching others have a good time! I am a very honest person who will bust his butt to to achieve goals in life! I am very into nature and will pull over on the side of the road to move a turtle so it doesn't get run over. I like all kinds of weather (except when it is minus 30C) I don't like watching people get hurt and I will defend people that can't defend themselves! I don't like people who lie or are high and mighty! People who purposely hurt others are scum and should be put away forever! But for the most part I am a content person who believes that we should all stop and enjoy life when ever we can because we are only here a short time and letting life slip by without enjoying it is a waste! I could go on and on but you get the idea of how I am!
