“very good hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2011

First time in latvia and found the dodo hotel easy to find, just jump on the no7 tram from town after buying a day ticket for 1.90lts. It takes about 7 min from town, and stops outside the hotel. The hotel is very clean our room was just the right size for two people, with en-suite shower room. We cant coment on the breakfast as we didnt eat there.
The hotel had a free phone where you could phone any place in the world for five minutes at a time. We are planing to return to latvia in the winter and hope to stay at the same hotel.

If you are looking for a hotel that offers good value, you can book at DODO Hotel. We booked our twin room for 3 nights at Euro 29 nett per night which is the cheapest that we can find in Riga. The hotel is new and it got WIFI even in our room. The beds are good and it has the basics - towels, soaps and shampoos. But watch out, the hotel has no elevator. Therefore, you need to carry your bags if your room is on the 2nd or 3rd floor.

The hotel is a 1 minute walk from the tram station that can take you to the old town in 10 minutes. There is a mall which has some coffee shops, money exchange, a supermarket, restaurants, near the hotel - maybe 10 to 15 minutes walk from the hotel.

The staff in the hotel are very polite, and they communicate well in English. They can help you out if you need to ask questions about directions, places of interest, etc. They can even call a taxi for you if you need one.

If you are looking for a nice place to stay and at the same time do not want to pay for something you don't need - DODO can be good solution. I've read many reviews about it and honestly was not sure that i've chosen proper place to stay but for some reason i went directly to this hotel.

LOCATION: Not far from the center/ 5 minutes by tram from the terminal. Bad idea to take taxi. You can buy e-ticket for tram, it's usefull and not expensive. The only thing that can bother you - people around. Most of them are friendly and speak english. But as anywhere in the world - do not talk to strangers:))) So please NOTICE: nothing to do with hotel itself, the situtaion in this country is not safe in general:)) so if you've chosen Riga - just take care.

HOTEL
Very clean, very!! Modern design, comfortable beds, WiFi, .... actually anything globe trotter needs.
Non-smocker rooms by the way. If you need a cigarette - go outside. That what i was doing:)))

Rooms may seem not that big, but cosy. There's no elevator by the way. I am travelling alone so it was enough space for me.

STUFF

Friendly, multilingual, polite.. Especially Nadia :))))))

P.S.
Some people just don't have good manners and i am sorry for them. The only negative thing - russian tourists. I am slavic myself but I'm sorry I respect other people and their privacy. It's really sad that such people think that if they've payed they can do anything they want, make terrible noice, throw garbage on every corner etc. And the worst is that they don't respect people around, especially stuff.


So once again thank you guys!

Surely I will come back!

Usually you get what you pay for, but this hotel have a better standard then I expected.
Clean, tidy and minimalistic rooms, easy to get to by taxi (fix your price before entering the car!) and tram. Also wery helpful staff!

Check out these restaurants: Bellavie (Expensive for the special occation), Province (Nice restaurant with local food and few tables, nice price).

The location of hotel is good, nearby is a lot of to shop, Lido restaurant is near and to centre/old town is not far away. Recommend to travellers with low budjet.

My stay in Dodo hotel was very nice. I lived there about 7 days in September 2010.
It`s very cozy hotel with responsive personal and rational prises.
The rooms are not big, but have convenient layout. Sound-proofing of walls and doors is satisfactory. An Electronic keys for doors sometimes is not working, but it not critically. It is just a new equipment.
