Ok to choose this hotel if you just consider following:
1) hotel is located just opposite Riga Arena, and unless you have business there, there is absolutely nothing of interest. Small coffeehouse down the road- and a bit further away you will find Super Netto and small shops.
2) Walking into Riga Old Town takes approx. 25-30 mins- there are busses to the centre- get advise from receptionstaff.
3) Hotel is built of cheap materials, uncomfortable beds, stained carpets, simple decor and limited cleanliness. Sattelite tv consisted of 2 latvian and 1 russian channel- and short haul sounds from euronews. Hotel is NON-SMOKING.
4) advertised wifi not present in room- but able to connect by cable and works fine. Wifi is available in the lobby. Most staff speaks english.
5) Breakfast 7:30-10:00 incl. few hot items, fine for the standard of hotel

The hotel offers great rates and if you dont need luxury and central location, then I recommend this hotel. Riga is a lovely city to visit and if your time permits go on tours to Sigulda and Jurmala.

Room Tip: think all rooms are the same- good size. Unfortunately you will hear doors slamming all the time.

If you like it cheap and simple this is your place to stay. No extra glamour, just pure simple standard accomodation. The double room has television with numerous local channels and our favorite channel CNN. The breakfast is totally fine if you do not expect a gourmet breakfast, it has all you need: coffee, tea, eggs, tomatoes, sausages and cheese +++ However, one remarable notice: ALL vegetables in Latvia like tomatoes, cucumber and similar has a very good standard! We LIKE. Another remarkable notice: LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION. If you are attending something FUN at Arena Riga, this hotel is just @ it. So go for it! Last we would like to mention that hotel Skanste has a very fresh "sleep temperature" and perfectly good sleeping "conditions." We've been here a couple of times and actually we sleep better here than at SAS Radisson blu.... Do not really know why, but it is true!

I spent there 2 nights recently and was very happy with my stay.
Simple, clean, and welcome place. Friendly people working at the front desk.
Hotel is located just over 2 kms from Old City and Train/bus station but you can get close enough by taking tram No 11, or just have a nice walk.

Breakfast there is quiet good, the only thing I could complain about is acoustic building..You can hear people walking above you or taking shower next to your room....but is OK for 2 nights.
I think it is great value, specially for less than 20 USD bed + breakfast.
Dont think twice...make a reservation !!
cheers,.

The hotel is a little bit outside the center, but still on a walking distance though. Staff was alright and English speaking. The breakfast was not anything special but good enough to start the day with. The hotel is especially great when you attend an event in the Arena Riga (like a concert for example): it is it just opposite of the street! In general an OK standard for a very OK price!

Hotel is cheep, but value is OK. Don't expect all lights in the bathroom to work, to have air conditioning or at least ventilation system - but it is ok (maybe too noisy in the morning - you can hear everyone taking a shower).
