We had the warmest welcome when we arrived in Riga at the Bearsleys Downtown Apartments. They’re centrally located with many places to eat and shop nearby (read more about what to do in Riga on our city guide). Not only was there a complimentary iPad (with handy tourist information) and a Latvian cell phone, but Bearsleys also provided breakfast at one of the many cool cafes located on our street. The apartments are so spacious and have television in English, complete with several American channels (Travel Channel! E! A guilty pleasure for us when we rarely have access to American TV). We felt right at home immediately and loved the gorgeous 15 minute walk to the historical Old Town. Staying in an apartment really made us feel like locals and gave us a true authentic Latvian experience!
