Beautiful spacious and bright apartment, very clean and comfortable. Nina is a lovely host and was there to meet us at check in and explain everything. The walk in to old town is around 15 to 20 minutes but its a pleasant walk. We would walk in and take the bus back. I highly recommend Nina's place.
While I went to this apartment and saw it, I ended up staying in another apartment a block away because of a problem with the elevator when I arrived. The apartment is on the 6th floor. It is as pictured, clean and centrally air conditioned. As others have noted, the building is old but clean. The apartment I stayed at was larger, quite new, clean and on the ground floor. Nina is lovely and made the switch without any hesitation. The second apartment was very comfortable. The apartments are on main streets in the central part of Riga with nothing of interest to tourists nearby. There are a few restaurants several blocks from the apartments. Public transportation by bus and tram are excellent. I walk everywhere. It is about 30 minutes to the Old Town and 20 to the Art Nouveau area. It is perhaps 10 minutes by tram to the edge of the Old Town - but you need to wait for the tram and then walk to wherever you're going. The Old Town is small, but 20 minutes door to door is probably the minimum. That was too much when I wanted to pop out for a late afternoon glass of wine or wander around to find a place for dinner.
