Wonderful place. Clean, nice, modern. Amazing breakfasts! The only disadvantage is locanion. It is quite problematic to get to the centre, the area around looks dirty and ugly. But if you travel by car - you'll not find a better place.

Although this hotel is not the historic district of Riga, it certainly is well connected to both the city and the airport. The historic area is only a short bus ride away. The rooms are well apportioned, clean and very comfortable. The staff is very helpful and internet connection was good. I did not try the breakfast, since we used... More

Very good value for money. The room was nice and very clean - excellent shower. The breakfast was amazing. Good location, close to the airport and walking distance to buses that go into Riga centre. No.27 trolleybus will take you into the centre of Riga in 20 minutes. There is free Wi-Fi internet and an information station. Overall, nice hotel,... More

Hotel Best is located at the other side of the river from the Old Town. It is too far to walk but you can catch the trolleybus from the corner which will take you to where the action is. Ask the reception which number to take and how much it costs. If you come by car, the hotel has it's... More

I stayed for 3 nights in Best Hotel and found it to be an excellent value for money. The room itself was basic and the walls were quite thin. However, it was extremely clean. Breakfast was good. It provided an airport pick-up which was cheaper than getting a taxi. It also had a restaurant with variety of dishes and the... More

We spent 2 nights in Best Hotel Riga. It is a nice budget hotel, with everything necesary. Rooms were ok, although in twin room, the beds were quite small. Breakfast was ok, buffet table with warm and cold food, juice, coffee. Parking in safe closed courtyard.

This is our third or fourth time using this hotel, so you can tell we think it is good value. It is easily reached from the airport by car and it is relatively quick to get on the highway from here. We especially appreciate the fairly large, convenient (and free!) parking lot. Last summer the new wing opened, and we... More

While visiting friends in Latvia we decided to see some other places. We stayed in Hotel Riga in Riga. There was free parking, which was nice, there was also shuttle bus service provided. We took advantage of the restaurant on the main floor several times, great food. We booked a budget private double room for $45.60 a night. Very reasonable... More
