We had a great stay in Riga, the apartment is in a great location on the edge of the Old Town and walking distance from everywhere we wanted to visit. Would definitely recommend as it's a unique and interesting place to stay in a fantastic location, and Katrina and Kristine were very helpful and welcoming.
We had a good time in Riga. The 'Man of history' was a good place, but it was very cold an humid there. Also the beds were a little bit hard. Also the shower was a little bit little.
At the end we had a good stay in 'the magic of history'.
Stunning apartment that lives up to the pictures. Lots of fantastic little unusual touches and loads of space. Perfect location within walking distance of everything in Riga and 10 mins from the airport. The flat was nice and clean. The only thing I'd say is what people have said before on previous reviews; that obviously the cave is quite chilly and damp and the shower is a little small. But such an amazing unique find that this didn't matter! We loved it.
I really enjoyed my stay here. Very quirky and in a good location. I think if you would like to make your stay in Riga a bit more special this is a must. It's like a medieval Moroccan bunker!
We had an excellent time in Riga, also thanks to this nice accomodation in an extremely central and yet quiet location. The accomodation was exactly as in the many pictures, although of course in reality it is a bit more compact than the castle it seems when looking at the photos. Katarina and Kristina were very friendly and helpful, and there was plenty of bed linnen. The only small negatives were that, it of course being a cellar, the house was quite damp, and in one of the bedrooms a ventilator was running continuously, also at night and it didn't seem possible to switch it off. I slept right through it but maybe some other people would have more problems with it. Also the washing facilities were a bit awkward (a tiny bathtub in which it was not too easy to shower). But all in all we were really happy with the place! Thanks again for sharing your house with us and making our stay in Riga even more enjoyable.
Wir hatten eine außergewöhnliche Location gesucht, wir hatten eine äußerst außergewöhnliche Location gefunden! Die Lage zur Altstadt ist perfekt!
Alles ist genau so, wie auf den Bildern gezeigt. Allerdings sollte man darauf achten, dass sich die Gewölbe natürlich kellermäßig im Tiefparterre befinden – für mich als recht grossen Menschen sind die Bögen zu tief... Ich musste mich immer bücken. Meine Frau hatte hingegen absolut gar keine Probleme erhobenen Hauptes durch die Cave zu gehen.
Leider war der Aufenthalt in Riga von nass-kühlem Wetter begleitet, somit war es natürlich auch in der Wohnung entsprechend kühl. Abhilfe schaffen Elektro-Heizungen und natürlich der Kamin.
Zwei kleine Kritikpunkte:
- die Betten dürften gerne ein bisschen weicher sein
- Da ist sich um ein Kellergewölbe ohne Fenster handelt (das einzige Fenster wurde mit einem leider defekten[?] Lüfter zugebaut) ist es, wie in einem Kellergewölbe erwartbar, etwas muffig. In dieser Richtung könnte vielleicht ein klein wenig etwas unternommen werden.
Wir würden sicherlich wieder gerne dort buchen, Aber wegen meiner Größe wahrscheinlich davon Abstand nehmen.
Kristine went out of her way to welcome us, as our flight arrived very late at night.
We loved the 'Man Cave' , it was a unique experience, even our Latvian family were delighted by the Bohemian decor, and the old city ambience.
Everyone wanted a 'sticky beak' as we say in Australia.
Fabulous location & very central.
Kristine was also a generous host, and made sure that we had some coffee and milk on arrival.
The beds were comfortable, everything clean and enough basics in cave to be able to make ourselves a meal & a cheese plate for visitors.
I agree with the previous reviewer who suggested bringing jumpers / jackets, as it can be cool in the cave - but not ever damp.
There were plenty of electric heaters around the place, and the lovely fire worked well, and certainly warmed the place up.
We loved the quirky lighting, a bit like staying in a night club - there were funny moments when searching for black clothes in a black suitcase in a dark corner required a degree of sixth sense.
There was also a caretaker upstairs, who helped us immediately when I managed to jam my key in the door lock.
We also liked the bathroom, it was fun, but did require some gymnastic abilities for hair washing. I also really appreciated that there were many toiletries available for showering etc.
We spent a whole week there, and loved it.
Many thanks to Kristine for sharing her Man Cave with us.
Cool cave, just like the pictures!
A little cold, and a little hard beds!
But fantastic location, and Kristine was very helpfull!
The Magic cave was exactly as described by the pictures. Wonderfull appartment, lovely decorated and with nice details and accessoires.
Perfectly located with pubs and stores in the neighborhood.
Thanks for hosting us, we will surely contact you for further trips!
We had the privilege of staying in the ManCave for two nights with my girlfriend. Kristine made us feel really welcome and provided us with all necessary information and supplies.
The property itself is quite stunning, has to be seen to be believed and is perfect if you're looking to spend some time in Riga with your special one or perhaps with a group of people. Whilst the place itself is huge and could probably house 7 or 8 people, we clearly saw the benefit of having the place to ourselves.
An unforgettable stay in a unique place in a stunning neighborhood and location. Would highly recommend.
Ospite discreta, educata e si preoccupa sempre di non disturbare. E' stato un piacere ospitare lei e sua figlia.
kristine and her daughter are really nice!!!hosting them was a great experience for me!!
Kristine and her party prove to be a very good guests. As i was not able to see them at the departure time i was pleased to find later apartment left in clean and good order. I would recommend her as a great guest to anyone and hope to welcome her in Wroclaw again very soon.
great person, very nice and gentle. thalks for the CUP!
