Reviewed 22 April 2012

We stayed as a stag party as the hotel put up with us just fine. Sadly we only sampled the breakfast 1 day as we came in too late the other nights! The hotel itself is really clean and tidy. Staff were good too. Regarding the location I would agree with others that it's not the nicest area of Riga but having said that the team stop is round the corner and was 70cents to the centre of town so not too bad. Get the Red Taxis back from town and it's only 2lats between you. Overall it's a great setup for the money and I know where to stay if I am ever in Riga again. Thanks :)

This hotel is great value. Ok so its not in the nicest area of Riga but hey its only a 20min walk to old town or you can hop on the tram so its hardly a problem.
the rooms are very clean and a nice size.
Staff were ok, friendly enough but never seemed to put themselves out.
Only complaint that we had is that three days straight the chambermaid just came into our room without knocking, alittle annoying as i prefer not to be naked when i first met people!

On arriving at the hotel I felt like I was playing call of duty. The area was worrying. I even said to others in our group that if the hotel is like the area I'm re booking in town.

Got into the hotel and it was like a premier inn. Lovely clean, friendly. Overall very impressed. Made our stay a pleasure.

Me and my girlfriend stayed 17th to 20th March, 2012. Nice hotel with friendly staff. Easy to get to the centre of Riga with tram, taxi and by foot. The area of the hotel was vastely decayed, and could remind a bit of the stereotype of the Soviet-era, but the hotel building itself was modern and in good shape.

Very quiet place with friendly staff! Rooms are modern and in a perfect condition! Prices are affordable for everyone! Would recommend this hotel for couples, business or friends and family! Stayed at this hotel 2 times already and will definitely come back again.

Room Tip: Stayed on the 3rd and 1st floor, liked the 3rd one more, as it`s more quiet there in my opinion.

Location – not the best, tram station actually is nearby and few small shops are near too, but the neighbourhood is not the best and the district is a bit spooky, that‘s why view through the window was nothing special. Despite those facts, cleanliness and prices are very good! (Perfect price for pleasant accomodation.)
Reception is helpfull, answered to all questions, was very polite.
Rooms – clean; small but cosy and nice.
Bathroom – sink is a bit small and inconvenient to wash hands :)
Everything else was okay, for a short stay last summer.

We were in Riga on Holiday 4-6 January 2012. Dodo hotel is better choice to save money -quality of the service is quiet high. The room was clean, the breakfast was normal. And we recommend this hotel for a short statement in Riga.
