So, if you dont know Russian, this place definitely will be a challange for you.That was a great surprise when I brought my friend to this hotel- the administrator didnt speak English at all. Moreover, my attempts to communicate with her in Latvian were unsuccesful as well. Finally, thanks to my Russian knowledge we were able to understand each other.. After half-an -hour I met there two Finnish tourist who were sooo embarrased trying to explain her that they want to know where to leave their car. Otherwise- it is in a good location (almost in the old town, 15 minutes walk to central station and bus station, 5 min to bus stop to/from airport). The rooms have been recently repaired, nice but nothing special, you can see that the cheapest materials have been used.
Breakfest is taken into your room by the same lady. Usually it consists from some pieces of bread, I cup of tea or coffee, two tiny sausages and some pieces of a vegetable.
I would say- the prize of this place is inadequately high for the service/.
