“Reliable in Riga”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

I first stayed in the VEF Days Inn last year and am returning next month, it is the most acceptably average hotel I have ever stayed in, the rooms are average, the food is average, the service also, but the price is cheap and the location is good, just far enough from the city-centre for comfort (but with a tram stop right outside) and close enoug to the countryside to walk there. you couldn't get a better hotel without paying more.
The VEF, by the way, is the old industrial zone, and full of interesting buildings & depots, well worth a look around.

Room Tip: the higher the better!

I slept well, the breakfast was good, there was a bar and the staff was helpful. The room I stayed in was pretty standard, but adequately furnished for my purposes: mostly sleeping. The WIFI offered decent speeds, the tele offered some channels in English and the room was kept tidy and clean. The only thing I missed was a gym.

Room Tip: I stayed in a room booked by a course provider. I had a standard room, and it was better than I had...

My Lithuanian colleague booked the hotel for me , price was €30. Hotel is central but parking was not so easy, we just put the car on a grass verge and hoped for the best. It was ok. We ate in the hotel bar / restaurant and the choice was fairly limited but the food was ok and good value. rooms were fine, clean and with good wi-fi and mini bar. It was a basic, budget option, perfectly suited to business travel, and I would not hesitate to recommend it.

For a budget hotel, the Days is a modern, stylish and comfortable base for your visit to Riga. The entrance and reception are bright and cheerful and the adjacent dining room is decked out in modern (dare I say, funky) colours. The hotel is situated a few Kms outside of the Old Town but is on the main road and easily connected by public transport.
The rooms are spacious and decked out in the hotels red colour scheme. The beds are comfortable - although I did find the duvet rather thin and cold for our winter stay. The in room TV has a few free channels but the rooms do benefit from free wifi. We used iPads to view our favourite online TV programmes. The mini bar is very reasonably priced. The bathroom was large, very bright and the shower very nice with lots of hot water.
Breakfast, included in our deal, is plentiful with a good selection of hot food, continental cold meats, cereals and yogurts.
We paid less than €40 per night for a double room (with breakfast) and found this to be brilliant value for money for a hotel that was smart, clean and comfortable. Hope to return again!

Had a bad experience at this hotel. Don't recommend it to anyone.

Problem #1:
On the first day I placed a "Do Not Disturb" sign on my door to prevent staff from coming into my room. They did anyway. But came in, moved a few things around, and left without making the bed or anything. And the DND sign was inside the room!

Problem #2:
Front desk staff is generally unfriendly, unhelpful, and unpleasant. I told the front desk about the DND sign ordeal. All they told me was "ok.. ok.. Uhu... thank you..."

Problem #3 THEFT!
I left a few Euros on the desk, and they were stolen after staff cleaned my room. Be careful with your belongings here.

Problem #4 CONDOM UNDER BED
When checking out, I always check under everything to make sure I'm not forgetting anything. Looked under the bed only to find a used condom. I was glad I was leaving.

Room Tip: Don't stay in this hotel. Chose something closer to "Old Riga"

Provides everything one wuold expect in 3 stars hotel - clean, well equiped quality rooms for the fair price, excellent breakfast (especially theur croissants). Also lots of parking space near hotel. So, if you are coming to RIga by car and not looking for a very central hotel, this is the rbest choice.
