Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
A bright and airy, two-room apartment with contemporary furnishings located near to the corner of Dzirnavu Street and Tarbatas Street in the heart of downtown Riga. In its central location, this comfortable apartment is surrounded by many fantastic restaurants and cafes, great shopping and cultural highlights.
The apartment building is designed in the traditional Latvian style with large windows: lots of daylight but well away from the noise of road traffic.
Right in the centre of Riga - everything is within easy walking distance:
- Vermanes park and the 24 hour flower stalls;
- Old Riga is just a five minute walk away;
- Supermarkets, coffee shops, a wide variety of good restaurants and great clothing and design shops;
- 10 minutes walk to the famous Zeplin hanger food markets (directly behind the central train station) which are a must see in Riga. Here you can buy excellent salamis, cheese and wonderful fresh fish and vegetables.
The local tram service nearby on Barona Street is very frequent and inexpensive and taxis (red ones) are good value. (Avoid white ones as these are often the more expensive).
Outside the City
Beach - Just 30 minutes (west) away by train is Jurmala where there are 38 kilometres of beautiful white sand. The Baltic coasts are certainly worth exploring. if you want to avoid the tourists head north on the train instead and the sandy beaches just continue….
Mountains - Sigulda is an hour by train and has a wonderful national park and castle. Great for mountain biking and winter sports.
Riga is a vibrant and cosmopolitan city just waiting to be explored - great food and shopping as well as masses of cultural highlights - Most of our guests find that a long weekend is not enough! The apartment provides a comfortable base to either explore the city or just chill out in.

"Great cosy simple apartment for a couple's city break"
My girlfriend and I stayed here for a winter city break for 5 days and the atmosphere was fantastic. The key pickup and deposit arrangement was easy, the only problem was finding the exact archway to the property was a little tricky even after we'd found the area very quickly (in part due to very helpful bus drivers) - the back of the building looks like you're walking to nowhere, but then you're up the stairs and into the lovely cosy flat.
The bedroom and kitchen/dining space are just the right size for a couple or perhaps with a child as well, but no more than that.
Once we got our bearings we realised the apartment was a relatively short walk from pretty much everywhere in town that we wanted to go (usually walking past the independence monument), except for when we ventured south of the Christmas markets to some of the museums when it was more of an adventure anyway.
The apartment looks relatively simple, but I only found this more endearing and the heating is a welcome blast in the face after being out in the snow.
When I somehow messed up my payment the owner was more than helpful too.

"Perfect location, lovely apartment, excellent value"
We booked this apartment at short notice and the communication with the owner was excellent. We were surprised at just how central its location was - right in the heart of the city. The apartment itself was bright, clean and simply furnished but comfortable and modern. What a perfect base for a long weekend in Riga!
