Liked: it was as described central near coach station and train station to other parts Latvia, it was clean and cleaner pleasant. ALL the staff: reception (males & females) very pleasant helpful and informed. Breakfast very acceptable. Security (through 3 doors) good

Disliked: very little as you see from my answer to 5 above. Just one gas stove with four rings did mean at times the few of us that actually cooked had to wait for ring space and/or utensils that were in use.
