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.

There is nothing wrong with this hotel, but I wouldn't necessarily recommend it either. The room was big, with a wardrobe, fridge etc. One of the twin beds was incredibly squeaky and I get the impression that a hoover was only used on the exposed bit of carpet as there was quite a lot of dust and stuff on the...

Booked a single room, tv, cupboard, private bathroom. Room was comfortable and very clean as the bathroom that also has hot showers and provided shower gel , shampoo and soap. The location is just a 20 minute walk to the city centre walking down straight along K. Valdemāra street which is near, so it is not too far away from... More

Clean, bright hotel with easy walking access to the city or via bus. Spacious rooms with reasonable bathrooms and a fridge. Breakfast is not too good as it consisted of salami, cheese slices & yogurt. Some sort of fruit juice was also available. Reasonable prices overall and I would recommend this hotel for a short trip.
