The thing was, as we are massive Robbie Williams fans when he announced a gig at Arena Riga we did what we normally do and booked the closest hotel to the arena, it's literally across a very small road! As most of our time wasn't spent in the hotel it didn't really matter what it was like, if that makes... More

It is a dishonest business. In the description it says: living with animals possible. After payment of the hotel accommodation with animals reported: it is absolutely impossible! This is a clever hoax!

It was a great experience living in that hotel. All of the services, staff, catering was good. Staff was good. The only thing was that the location was much away from centre of the town and they should also display about there hotel atleast near to hotel, as it was very difficult to find it.

I am sorry to report that Hotel Skanste is a place to avoid when staying in Riga. It may be one of the cheapest hotels but is also the least pleasant. The biggest gripe of all was that there was no heating in the rooms even though it was justified for the management to put it on. This meant I... More

I do simply not understand the bad reviews this hotel gets! Another case of Champagne tastes on beer Money! For what you pay this hotel is very good value! We paid just over £14.00 each for 2 separate twin rooms with breakfast! Where else in the EU can you stay in a 3 * hotel for that Price? The breakfast... More

We'd asked to be near the centre from the tour people, who told us we were and nothing else was available from the group they used. We arrived (15 mins taxi ride from the edge of the city to a grey square block to find our request for a nice double had been ignored, we had two singles end to... More

Value for money, location was a main priority for us. I would recomend this hotel as budget bed and breakfast, especially after event in Riga arena. Location is just perfect - hotel is at the back of arena.

I booked this hotel via Expedia. When I checked it, suddenly my booking was not valid, I had to take the "last room in the hotel" at a higher rate. It seems this isnt unusual. When I spoke to Expedia, they suggested this is a common occurence with this hotel, they tried to help but the hotel just saw a... More

This is a sub-basic hotel with poorly maintained rooms. The big led sign on top of the opposite building shines all night and takes away your sleep. I asked for a room change but they refused. Your voucher calls it a "buffet breakfast", but it is not: You need to cut a piece from a block of margarine :)

Rooms look a bit tired. But bedding and towels still fresh and crisp. Rooms nice size, no cleaners faults found bud marks on the carpets and walls. Decent size. Reception staff very friendly. Good quality for price.
