      Highly recommend

      The room was large, very comfortably and aesthetically furnished (not the no fuss minimalist look which is so prevalent) under floor heating in the bathroom, so welcome as the weather was rainy and cold and full range of bathroom toiletries. Breakfast was fantastic. Unfortunatley did not have an opportunity to eat in the restaurant. An issue we had was dealth with VERY promplty by the staff. Ideally located in between the old town and the shopping area of Riga. Am planning to stay there again on our return trip to Riga shortly.

      Room are nice, spa lady not so friendly

      Hotel is lovely, room was decent, food was lovely. The only downside was the spa receptionist needs to be trained to more human. Came across very cold, my antigen test expired 1hour ago and she said sorry you won’t be admitted due to Covid. I was admitted to the hotel and dining that evening and the breakfast the next morning. I believe she was on a power drive and showing authority. I stayed at the Kempinksi hotel few blocks away and their service, seamless and amazing especially at the spa. Note to self lesson learnt not to go to the spa of Poet Hotel. Spa itself was empty yet she made a big issue

      Breakfast was not the same as before

      The Hotel was nice. Compare to previous visit the only point that was not the same was the quality and diversity of breakfast table. In the past the selection was much more and made this hotel different from all the other hotels I have visited in Riga. However, now the selection was much more limited. Most probably because of Covid-19. However, it has resulted in making the hotel less competitive when you compare it with other hotels that are cheaper in Riga.
