The only attraction: walking distance from airport. But breakfast starts at 7:30, so not even open for early departures. Save your appetite for the terminal building anyway: hotel breakfast is a rather tasteless set piece (egg, meat, cheese, tomatoes, bread) with no choice (okay, coffee or tea), served at the table. The whole place is outdated and without any character.... More

Difficult to find if you are driving, but very easy (5 mins) to walk from the airport. Hotel is basic, but clean, warm and the staff were friendly and helpful. Great if you arrive late or have to depart early from Riga airport. Free wifi which was pretty quick. One of the cheapest airport hotel rooms i've ever had!

It was very close to Riga airport but no lights was on, so it was really difficult to reach- if you alone its probably not too safe. The taxi drivers dont want to drive there as its only 3-4 minutes drive. The rooms are very basic but clean. The breakfast is made when you arrive in breakfast room, so if... More

This hotel is situated less than 400m away from the terminal building at Riga. Come out of the terminal building at the lower level and past the taxi rank. You can see the hotel off to your 1 o clock. A 5 minute walk and you will be there. The hotel is quite comfortable and has free WiFi throughout -... More

If you by any chance end up Riga airport something is already wrong, as that is an airport with virtually no services and even those few they have are rude and not so functional. It's like going 20 years back in time. The Sky High Hotel, however, is nicely located (4-5 min walking) and offers rather good place to sleep.... More

Located a short walk from the terminal, this quirky aviation themed hotel was clean and comfortable. Pleasant staff and a good healthy breakfast. Great value for it's location, was a perfect stopover between flights. Short taxi ride to city center.

The Sky High couldn't be better located if you're flying from Riga. Clean and reasonably pleasant with friendly staff. The rooms are a good size too and there's plenty of towels and nice clean bedding. Within 500m of Riga airport - extremely well located.

I stayed here just before I left Riga, and although it doesn't have all the amenities, or the feeling of a 4+ star, it was super convenient to walk to the airport. I also went to the mall after checking in, and it was best to walk to the airport and catch a cab, and to get dropped off on... More

I stayed here for a stopover arriving late and leaving early in the morning. First room I was given had a funny odour so I asked to change which the receptionist did with no problems at all. Second room was great, no problems, strong wifi and comfy bed. Basic room a bit dated but fine for what I needed it... More
