Good location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was in an excellent location - a few minutes walk from the old town, the river, the market, the bus station and the train station. The airport buses stop just outside so it is really easy to get to and from the airport - bus number 22 or minibus 222. There was also a very good supermarket just over the road - Stockmans. The apartment was clean and tidy, well lit, well equipped, bright and spacious. There was some traffic noise but that is inevitable given the central location. There was no noise or disturbance from neighbouring flats. The manager met us at the flat to show us around and was able to answer queries. The apartment was very secure - it felt very safe there. The shower room was lovely - plentiful hot water. On the negative side, towels were provided but we were only given one large towel each - no hand towel or bath mat. The washing machine didn't work but all other equipment was fine. There was only one wine glass and no large dinner plates but as we ate out a lot it didn't really matter to us. We stayed there for 5 nights.

Problems

  • 2 of 5

This could have been a five star apartment but there were too many problems! The good points include a convenient location, the apartment was clean, and there was an elevator. The problems, however outweighed the good.

The refrigerator did not work! We first thought it just wasn't turned on, but not so. We found several ice packs in the freezer, unusual items to keep in a rental freezer, leading to our conclusion that the management was aware of this as an ongoing problem but chose not to mention it to us. This didn't get fixed till the last day of our five night stay, which did us no good.

The washing machine didn't work. I only found this out when I asked where the machine was as the manager was walking out the door. She first said it didn't spin well, then texted us to say it damaged the last renters' clothes. Had I not asked, we would have found this out the hard way as well.

The hot water making machine didn't work.

The couch was saggy and the upholstery worn and dirty. We covered it with an extra quilt we found so I can sit on it and not feel grossed out.

The bathroom was beautifully tiled but the floor was slipper when wet and there was no shower rug. When we called, we were directs to some towels kept under lock and key. This help some but the water was everywhere, the especially since the sink was one of the beautiful but non functional shallow ones which

splashed. I don't know what could have helped with this situation.

There were no dinner plates. There were soup plates, large and small but no flat dinner plates. Nor was there a spatula, only ladles of various kinds. Fixing eggs for breakfast was more challenging than it needed to be. But since our food in the refregirator spoiled after a couple days, this problem solved itself.

There were other inconveniences but not sufficiently big to mention. We have stayed in apartments all over Europe and this was our fourth on this trip through the Baltics. This is the first place that made no offer to help with our luggage upon our arrival. Only the minimum information was offered and the manager was very obviously in a hurry to depart. No apartment is perfect and we can overlook a lot of problems with good customer service, but there were no ameliorating factors in this situation.

Appartement à RIGA

Appartement très bien situé, très propre, spacieux et très bien équipé. Seul inconvénient: le bruit extérieur.
