“Very good hotel though rather far from the center”
Reviewed May 30, 2011

Very nice, convenient, modern and inexpencive hotel, half an hour to the center by trolleybus. And the price is always reasonable. Do recommend.

Cozy hotel, nice and helpful staff, the rooms were clean, the price per night was according what we got;
I didn't like the location, because is was a little bit far away from the city center- around 20 min with the local buses) and the tv- only 1 program in English;
Riga is a melting between a historical town with nice buildings, towers, churches and a soviet city with hideous blocks of flats;
The motormuseum, railroad museum, war museum and the House of Blackheads is worth visiting;
We also liked very much Jurmala resort with it's elegant houses and the Baltic Sea;
I like Latvia and would visit it again, but in summer, it's indeed a green country.

I have been in Riga for dofferent purposes: its were few meetings, culture sightseeing, photografy. And there was a very hard time plan. Every day I returned in hotel very tired, and this hotel gave me that was the most needful for me - quiet rest, so I can restore for next active day!

This was the second time that we visited Riga and the second tme that we used Best Hotel. I liked the fact that it was a short journey by bus to the centre of Riga - but that just made us enjoy it more as we got to see more of Riga. The Hotel is very clean and modern with good en-suite bathroom. There is a television but don't expect to see many programmes in english (although watching Southpark and Familiy Guy in German was quite amusing). Breakfast's were good and changed slightly by the day, but enough variety for even fusy eaters - like my children. There is wi-fi which was really helpful for planning our trip. The staff are friendly and helpful. When we return to Riga which we surely will - we will not hesitate in booking with best hotel directly.

if your looking for good cheap accomodation best lives up to its name although a bit away from the center its a nice place... my only negative would be the very thin walls. you really need to be lucky in who you get as neighbours because even if you never see them you will 100% hear them :(
