Hotels in Cesis: Dating back to 1938, this city hotel is located in the very heart of city. The famous Cesis castle, parts of which date back to 1209, one of the most interesting castle ruins in the Baltic states, is just 200 metres from the venue. Cesu Pilsetas cathedral can be reached within a 5-minute walk and the central rail and bus station lay just 500 metres away. For anyone wishing to explore the countryside, the Gauja River is roughly 4 km away and it is around 5 km to the Zagarkalns ski region and 6 km from the cross-country ski runs. The area around the hotel houses a number of restaurants and bars, but guests shouldn't have to venture outside of the venue since its very own Alexis restaurant offers a splendid view of the Maija Park and some distinguished cuisine. Its elegant atmosphere is ideal for both business dinners and romantic rendezvous.
