Satisfied to get my own room, but that's about it. The room had good size, but was stained and the bed was terrible. Bathroom had shards from the tiles and you could hear everything that goes on in the rooms around and outside. BUT it is cheap and if you don't have high standards it will be fine.

This hotel has such serious health and safety issues it would be closed down if in the UK. Apart from the few staff working there who were helpful and friendly there is nothing to recommend it. Pay a little extra and find somewhere nicer and closer to town. Examples: Shower cubicle covered in mould, nasty little beds with very cheap... More

We went on a deal, so we were not sure of the accommodation. When we arrived we first saw the stairs, carpet was coming loose and missing in places, apart from what this looks like, it is also extremely dangerous. The bedroom had a dirty old carpet, old worn, stained mattresses on the beds with the springs literally poking through,... More

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
