Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Voru, Estonia6 contributions
Easy to get close by bus. When you come by bus, you feel that the building is built 180° the wrong way. The bus stops on the big street, but the entrance is on a small street. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room had a bathtub and I would have expected that there would also be the products needed for a bubble bath and a bathrobe. There were none of these and there is no information whether they could have been ordered from room service, for example? However, there were slippers.

My personal opinion. This hotel have lost 4 stars many years ago. According service and rooms quality this hotel can reach 2-3 stars max. Superior Twin Room was absolutely awful. Smells inside like someone was smoking for a week. When Ive changed room to standard a little "surprise "was waiting for me. Old , ripped towels , rusty bath and ..... what do you think? NO HOT WATER !!! Excuse me, but is this 4 stars hotel or students hostel??? Do not recommend!!!

Dear aeroviktor We appreciate you sharing your honest feedback about your experience at this hotel. It's disappointing to hear that you encountered various issues, from the unpleasant smell in the superior room to the condition of the towels, rusty bath, and the lack of hot water. These concerns certainly do not align with the expectations one would have for a four-star hotel. Your feedback is valuable as it can help other travelers make informed decisions, and I hope that the hotel management takes these points into account for future improvements. If you ever plan to visit Tallinn again, consider researching and reading reviews to find accommodations that meet your expectations and standards. Your comfort and satisfaction should always be a priority during your stay. Agnese Deicmane Quality specialist

Rixwell Elefant Hotel Kalnciema Iela 90 #latvia #riga Quite large hotel walking distance from Riga Centre. Two private parking areas. The Price is above average in our opinion. The room is cozy and clean. Reception and service average. Didnt like that they started pushing for a more expensive room. Breakfast was unfortunately a big disappointment.The extra bed is terribly hard. Official category 4 starts, we give 3 stars. Price 6/10, Location 8/10, Room 7.9/10, Services 6.5/10, Cleanliness 8/10, Breakfast 6/10, Coffee 5/10, Wifi 8.5/10, Bed 7/10. Total Rating 7/10 Average.

The hotel was contemporary, clean, comfortable, convenient to airport, great floor-to-ceiling windows in each room, decent HVAC, good, if not cramped, secure garage at a reasonable €7/day rate (other Riga hotels offer free parking). The only complaint would be that the hotel description implies that their airport shuttle is included, which it is not. It costs €20/person/transfer, which is more than a Bolt rideshare car will charge, approx. €6/car/transfer for most other hotels in the area. By this standard, the Elefant does not include an airport shuttle as advertised.

This was the first time we have managed to go abroad since Covid restrictions blah blah, we ended up choosing Latvia due the low cost of the flights, so we were not sure what to expect as never been to this part of Europe. The hotel was realy nice, very clean, our room was perfect for a four night stay. The breakfast was very good with plenty of choice I didn't have the same thing any morning. We ate in the hotel resteraunt on one evening which was very nice and well priced. The location of the hotel is just outside the main city but is only a 20 minute bus ride which you can catch from just outside the hotel which is only 2 Euro's. There is also a trian station a five minute walk away where you can catch a train to the coast (Majori which is realy nice) for just over one Euro. A big thank you to the hotel for making our anniversery stay so wonderful.

To reserve a hotel was easy, superior twin bed room is big enough. I didn't like only shower cabin, water was leaking on the floor and there were other bathroom minor issues. Breakfast is good, staff is friendly. Overall I liked to stay there.

Everything was nice and as described. Not too far from the airport and easy to get to city center, great opportunity to get breakfast to go if you have to leave early. Breakfast included sandwich, yoghurt, apple and water.
