Écht HEMA!

A travel blog entry by eyre


... bags, a pump and some tire plasters (yes.. already..) > "go to HEMA".

A sleeping bag? "HEMA" A garbage can? "HEMA" Extra clothes hangers? "HEMA!!"

You see, my sad underprivileged readers who do not live in The Netherlands (495 stores), Belgium (90 stores), France (27 stores), Germany (10 stores), Luxembourg (4 stores) or even Spain (1 store): HEMA is the best shop that The Netherlands has to offer!

A large vat of porridge. Also usually a large arrangement of whole fruit, a fruit salad ...

Riding out of Town

A travel blog entry by carpefeline

... step foot out the front door. Of course, things don’t always go according to plan, e.g. my almost missing the train out of Moscow, but at least there is a plan and I am so thankful that the days of arriving in a strange town with nothing but a guide book and map and high hopes in front of me are gone! Definitely have gotten too old and arthritic for that! But I can smile fondly when I see a young couple in backpacks with ...

... s fur. I absolutely love them and my sister as well :) At the local market you can find berries, fruits and veggies at reasonable prices. The market is at walking distance from the train station. If you're somewhere around, don't miss it! If not, then take some time and go there, I'm sure you'll find something you'd like to eat or own ;)

... to the far reaches of the USSR. That's one percent of the population. Forty percent of them died there, one way or another. During the next two weeks, another four thousand or so met the same fate.

On June 22, 1941, while that was going on, the Nazi’s violated their anti-aggression pact with the Soviets (much to the naive Stalin’s surprise) and invaded Latvia. Some Latvians saw that as a good thing because it would get rid of the ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Blu Daugava Hotel, Riga

    Wonderful Hotel


    The Radisson Hotel in Riga is excellent, a compliment to this delightful city The rooms are very comfortable, the facilities first rate and the staff always friendly and helpful. The breakfast is second to none.

    Above average, but location could be better


    We booked this hotel because we were extremely unsure of the others. At the airport, local people said it was a "very good" hotel, but the Ridzene was better. Our room was very spacious and overlooked the river and Old City, which was nice. The staff was very, very helpful and the shops and pool nice, as well. Even on the 6th floor, you could hear the traffic. At least the traffic was not in full gear until the morning. The bridge you walk over to see the Old City is pretty long. We did take the hotel shuttle, but it only runs every hour, which can be inconvenient. The breakfast buffet was extraordinary and the restaurant in general was great. All staff could speak English which helped alot. I would say for a chain hotel, on a scale 1-10, this one is about a 8. I would stay here again, but would probably pick the Ridzene next time for location.

    Good hotel...depending on what room you get


    Stayed in the Radisson SAS over the weekend for a stag do.

    Not a 5 star hotel


    The hotel is a concrete block still remembering the soviet era in some details of the building and in the service attitude of the hotel staff. The reception desk staff avoids any redundant sentences like "Good Morning, can I help you, did you enjoy your stay, have a good day". The breakfast restaurant ist 100% self service, so don't await any of the waitresses to adress you with a single word, look or smile. My suspicion is, they are only paid to clean the tables. This is by far under Radissons usual standards and has nothing to do with a five stars hotel. I have no problem to pay a first class price for a hotel with refurbished interior of the soviet era, but I am not willing to accept such lacks in the service attitude.



    The hotel was not quite 5 star, but reasonable. A word of advice, don't walk back over the bridge from old town Riga after midnight. Take a taxi. We were confronted by two guys who emerged from nowhere, luckily we evaded them

    First Class hotel and service


    Just returned from 3 truely lovely days and nights in Riga.

    We stayed in a Business class room in the Radisson and could not complain about anything.

    The service is 1st class and facilities available are outstanding.

    At breakfast, the hotel provides such an enormous variety of fresh and beautifully presented food, from traditional bacon and eggs to smoked salmon, fresh fruit and cereal.

    Its about a 5 miniute walk over the bridge to the heart of Riga. If you are lucky enough to get a river view room the views from it are spectacular.

    Highly recommend a stay in Riga and at the Radisson.

    PS - try the Mojitos and also the Zelta beer goes down far too nicely!

    Good but not 5-star


    Overall the Radisson is OK, but a little disappointing if you're expecting a 5-star experience. Room was average, but only real problem was the air conditioning which kept switching off making the room very hot. Staff were a mixed bag; grumpy on reception but otherwise nice (I guess that happens anywhere though). Breakfast fantastic. Has a great amber shop upstairs, and also a decent "corner shop" on ground floor.

    Distinctly Average


    We stayed at the Radisson SAS in Riga over Easter 2005. From the outside the building looks like a shabby grey 1970's concrete block. Although the hotel is rated as 4* on this site it has 5* on display in it's reception. The overall impression on entering the hotel is quite good, the reception area is large and clean, but on check in our first experience, which sadly was repeated over and over throughout our stay, was miserable unsmiling staff. We found the communal areas to be well maintained and resonably attractive, and exactly as you would expect of a 4/5* hotel.

    Good view


    This hotel has a good outlook over the river and the reception looks smart, but the rooms are old and so small the bed is right up against the window. Our friend said the towels were what she would use to dry the dog!

    On our first night, we were kept awake until 6am by noisy stag nights shouting and banging on doors, and no-one would answer the phone in reception when we tried to complain. However next day the manager moved us to a quieter floor.

    There are other, refurbished hotels in the old town, that we will use if we are ever in Riga again.

    Quality hotel


    As you'd expect, a very pleasant hotel to stay in. A shame that all of these hotels are exactly the same anywhere in the world, so really you're not staying in Riga, or experiencing anything Latvian, but experiencing a generic worldwide hotel. There seemed to be a lack of accommodation in Riga, and what there was seemed pricey, so the Radisson seemed a bargain. The hotel itself is located in a great location overlooking the river and the city. It's a large, modern, clean hotel with good facilities and a very good buffet breakfast.
