Days Hotel Riga VEF
Ranked #62 of 112 Hotels in Riga
Reviewed 4 September 2012

Located far from the old city but well connected by tram.
Best thing is the restaurant at the top with a nice terrace. We ordered some beers, cheese to share and pasta, all delicious.
You can also order BBQ, atmosphere is incredible and prices are reasonable.
I would definitively recommend this hotel.
Small Area to have breakfast, second day was full of Germans and it was almost imposible to reach the coffee machine and the rest of things.

Very good hotel not far from the Historic centre, located on the city's key road Brivibas that leads straight to the Old Town. Public transport stop is just in front of the hotel so you need 10 min. to get to the centre. Reception service is good if there is no crowd, usually one receptionist only, speaks RUS/ENG. Room was clean, spacious, non-smoking and quiet (window was to the opposite side of Brivibas drive), well maintained shower, beds comfy and TV offers a wide range of channels in many languages. Free and fast wireless internet available in the room. Small grocery store is nearby, if you need that, and open till late hours. Free parking in the front of the hotel and secured underground for 5 EUR fee per night.

Never tried a breakfast, thus no opinion on that.

Generally nothing to say from negative side, however, please be careful when using underground parking: lack of space there, very narrow galleries and a lot of columns.

Almost excellent short-term stay taking into account the rate - I got double/twin for 32.50 EUR incl. parking per night.

Thank you for taking time to share your feedback of your business stay in Days Hotel Riga VEF! We appreciate your positive comments about amenities, services, team and location of the hotel. You are absolutelly right that the city centre is easy reachable by public transport, as the tram, bus and trolleybus stops are just few steps from the hotel entrance. Regarding underground parking, i must say that it is a Standard size parking with few columns, which is suitable for up to 20 automobiles. It is possible to use parking next to the hotel during your next stay, if you feel that underground parking has a lack of space. Hope to see you back in Days Hotel Riga VEF!

Plus: reasonable equiped rooms with free wi-fi; correct location, if your morning starts from business visits on right bank of Daugava - you should not pass traffics over the brides, which might be terrible during morning hours; lot of parking space; reasonable breakfast
Minus: winter period restaurant worked till 21.00 only ( ! ) - having in consideration, not much places to eat around ( you need to take taxi to city center ) - it's not acceptable at all, especially when business travelers came late and no chance even to take a glass of beer, However in summer period works longer, but still...

Staying here regularly on business purposes, as a result of well balanced quality/price ratio and proximity on locations need to visit. Will not stay for city trips here, as might find better locations in city center.

Room Tip: if you are kind of noise sensitive, ask room not on side to Briviba street - it's main city stre...

I have stayed in Days Hotel on a number of business occasions and I enjoyed it's boutique style décor and found the breakfast quite good. The rooms are quite big and spacious, clean and tidy. It was also quite, for me when I'm travelling on business its essential. However the ensuite toiletries are a bit of a let down, I'd say bring your own. The rate was very favourable and whereas it's not ideal if you're a tourist and want to stay in the centre, it was perfect location for my stay.

I have stayed at the Days in Riga a number of times whilst travelling on business. It’s good value for money, no frills type of hotel but they do try to make it somewhat more pleasant than your average budget hotel. The rooms are clean and reasonably spacious. The bathrooms look a little tired but is perfectly acceptable. The staff that I have come in to contact have, on the whole, been polite and efficient if not the friendliest of hotel staff on earth. The restaurant is reasonable by Riga standards although on one occasion I did suffer poor service from staff who seemed offended that I had arrived 30 minutes before the kitchen closed. At one point the waiter refused to bring me another drink even though I was still waiting for my main course!
The location is a little out of town if you want to see the sites that Riga has to offer but public transport is fairly easy to negotiate in Riga.

I stayed at the Days hotel in March.
Whilst it is value for money I was let down as a guest.

To begin, it is not in the most attractive part of town, ten minutes in a cab to the old town.

The rooms are presentable and well kept by the room maids, no wardrobe though, just a space to hang your clothes and a few shelves.

Facilities are very basic, free wifi is offered and appreciated, but the bar on the top floor only opens every week or so.
The restaurant is pleasant, but more like a cafe to be honest, breakfast is of a reasonable standard, but if you are a fan of an English type breakfast this isn't for you, the hot offerings are not good.
Evening meals are also served here, again a basic menu, but good cheap food.

My stay however was ruined when at the weekend the hotel allowed a childrens dance group to take over the building at the expense of other guests. Children as young as six were running up and down the corridors screaming and banging on doors until midnight with no supervision, and more important, no consideration for their safety.
They were playing in the lifts, even broke one, and running up and down the stairs.

This went on for three nights, I made numerous calls to reception, and even got out of bed twice to complain, I was told they "can't do anything"
At no time was I offered to move rooms etc. No contact at all from any manager, in fact there was no management presence during my whole stay.

I wont be back.

If you are only looking for a place to sleep Days hotel works perfect but don’t expect any extras. The service is friendly and the rooms are reasonably clean and well kept. My room smelled funny and the water was yellow but I understood from colleagues that this was not the same in all rooms. Further, I arrived late and checked out early so I didn’t even bother to complain. The breakfast was ok but again no extras but I honestly don’t think you can ask for that at the rates they are charging.
