The loft as the interior style was firstly emerged in the middle of XX century in the urbanized United States. As the land price in the city had been dramatically grown, the owners of the production spaces had been forced to move production into suburbs and empty industrial facilities have been transformed into housing premises. Going through difficult way from workshop or working room to comfortable dwelling, the loft became popular all over the world. Today the loft is preferred by people who value usable, creative and minimal interior.

- "We are together for the third year now and do not think about separation." A story from our guest, within the framework of the contest "One day at the apart-hotel".
Do you believe in love at first sight? I also did not believe before meeting him - my beloved apartment. When I first met him, I realized that for some time I would definitely want to have a relationship with him, I just did not know how long our affair would last - whether it will be short term - for a couple of months, or it will turn out to be something more serious and more durable. Agnese
- "Отличные уютные апартаменты !! Советую!!!" Не первый раз в Риге, но впервые останавливался в апартаментах. Был приятно удивлен комфортом квартиры и качеством дополнительных услуг. Квартира очень аккуратная, фешенебельная и грамотно продуманная. Площадь компактная, но все необходимое для работы и отдыха присутствует. Все чисто. Полный комплект посуды, моечных принадлежностей, стиральный порошок и все пр. имеется. Обслуживание ненавязчивое. Все договоренности были аккуратно соблюдены, я остался доволен и планирую вернуться вновь. Егор
