It is ridiculous that one should be threatened by a whopping€340 fine if they were to make noise past 11pm. The breakfast was limited and obviously made from the cheapest available, the orange juice was horrible, the bread was stale at times and the bacon was undercooked. The rooms were too small for two persons. I also encountered an empty... More

The hotel is in a street and surrounded by buildings and people who seems to have been taken out from a horror movie. I always tried to return before dark as it was just too scary to get back at night. The staff in the hotel were the most unpleasant people i've ever met. My seven year old daughter was... More

I stayed at Dodo Hotel for 9 days in July 2014. The hotel is overall a good one if you are looking for a low cost place top stay. The rooms are quite small, especially the bathroom, but you get boiling hot water in the shower so be careful! Your room is cleaned and towels are changed everyday so that... More

The hotel was good value at this price. Unfortunately the stay was spoilt by a stag do of 20 guys from Middlesborough. They drank 24 hours a days and all smoked at the entrance to the hotel. They were generally loud, lewd and abusive causing damage to the hotel and general atmosphere. I would avoid staying at this hotel again... More

I think it's better to be a very strong 2-star hotel, than a 4-star hotel with problems. Dodo Hotel does not pretend to be anything else - They are a 2-star hotel in a poorer neighbourhood in Riga, however, they are an excellent 2-star hotel. We stayed there with the team for the World Choir Games. At first I was... More

Me and my son visited in June and we like it. Very clean, it looks like new. Easy to get by tram 7,3 and 9 stop in front of the hotel. A first you get disappointed with the area, but after you go around Riga and noticed that just the center is beautiful, then you realize is a nice area.... More

We booked this hotel for we got a good deal and tripadvisor reviews were good as well. Boy we were wrong. Hotel rooms need a big redo!!!! When we arrived they gave us a room on the 2 floor. When we stepped in the smell that came from the room was disgusting. We were trying to figure out where the... More

Executive summary: Pros - Clean, friendly staff, daily cleaning, very close to tram station Picky cons - No lift (or elevator for those who don't use lifts), bed can be uncomfortable, thin walls, rooms are on the small side Overall very good for the money* *Although I would recommend paying a little extra for more comfort, especially if travelling as...

Booked as part of a very cheap Expedia deal (incl flight and car), so I'll assume the cost component was low, only stayed 1 night Beside the obvious sights, be sure to visit the old market, interesting place (Tram passes it, just before old town) Positives - Good Budget option - Easy tram into town (no 7) , 1.20 EUR...
