We visited this hotel in the last week of the season and this meant it was very quiet. The staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms well kept and quite large and the breakfast was perfectly adequate for a hotel of this quality/ price range

Hotel Riga’s is ideally situated close to Skopelos Town. Our room was not as modern as we thought it would be and we were disappointed for a family of 4 to be sharing 1 sleeping area. However the view of Skopelos Town was fantastic from our balcony. I must say that although

Our room smelled like a basement, the cleaning was awful and we didn’t get our towels changed, the air conditioning broke, the lights broke, there is not enough room for the guest at breakfast... the staff is friendly, but didn’t quite help with the problems. The food is okay

how to reach Rigas from Athens?
Hello ! from Athens there are two ways, you can take a flight to Skiathos and then a small boat ride, or alternatively by ferry boat from the ports of A Konstantinos or Kymi, allow 2 hours travelling time to the port and then 2 to 4 hours by the ferry. Hope this helps! Best Regards

How far away from the beach is this hotel?
Hi, we are very close to the port and the central beach of the town, only a couple of hunderd metters away. It is not however the best beach on the island. There are many dotted all over, ranging in distance from the hotel from about 5 mins to an hours drive. We would be more than happy to recomend and arrange all your transfer needs when in the hotel. Looking forward to welcoming you in our Rigas!
