Days Hotel Riga VEF
Ranked #61 of 110 Hotels in Riga
Reviewed 2 July 2010

Even though the location is out of city centre, I must say I didn't mind at all, as there are buses and trams going to the old city just in front of the hotel. Excellent choice for people who prefer to pay less, but still to sleep in a nice hotel. Very clean, excellent service, colourfull rooms. Staff so helpful. We didn't have breakfast, as we chose to eat outside always, and breakfast is only EUR 6 per person. The hotel is very close to shopping mall, and it is on half way from the city centre to Ethographic museum.

The hotel is superior to its surroundings, bright and clean with a good breakfast. Our visit unfortunately was spoilt because, firstly, the Google map had given an incorrect location and in fact we found it was twice as far from town than we had expected. In fact it is over the railway line, among derelict buildings. The name is on the roof but not easily visible from the road - look for Sunny Restaurant on the left hand side of the road as you come from the city centre. Then we were affected by groups who on one occasion had been allocated breakfast slots which left only 45 minutes for all individual guests. One particular group consisted of dog fanciers whose pets stayed in the bedrooms, barked at all hours and were walked around the public areas of the hotel.

This was our second visit to the hotel and it was every bit as good as our last visit. (Read down about 3 reviews to find our previous review). Just a few updates this time.

Food is still as good and superb value for money.

Note that the hotel has just changed hands - lets hope the new owners keep up the high standards.

The new owners have discontinued the free tickets to the jazz bar but at 5 lats entry its still good value for top quality entertainment.

The public transport situation has changed slightly. The same busses/trams and trolleybusses stop outside the hotel but they now work on electronic tickets. (You can still buy a paper ticket from the driver though). Best bet is on arrival at Riga airport, go up to the departure floor left side and go into the "Pluspunkts" newsagent. For about 6.70 lats each they will sell you a plastic card valid on all types of public transport for 5 days. Swipe it on the reader every time you get on a bus or tram and you will get a bleep and a green light (you can keep it in your purse or wallet when swiping, it doesnt damage your other cards).

Another change to public transport is that the 22A bus has been discontinued. You now have to get the number 22 from behind the airport car park (3 min walk). This one runs to the train station where you can change onto one of the trams/trolleybusses to the hotel. We had some trouble finding the stop for the return journey - best way seemed to be to look for the Stockmans department store and it's on the opposite side - the furthest of the 3 or 4 stops.

One final point about the hotel - we discovered that not all rooms are air conditioned. It didn't matter in November but this time it was 28 degrees. We asked at reception and they moved us after the first night to an air-con room with no fuss and no extra charge. Worth asking if the hotel is not full.

Stayed here for 3 nights in April 09. Staff were friendly, and so helpful. The room was great, a huge bed, TV, minibar, Air Conditioning did not work but not really needed in April when the window could be opened! Bathroom and room were clean, the only thing if we were to be really picky was the shower curtain was discoloured. Each floor has a different colour scheme, ours was red and everything is red! We ate in the restaurant one night which was superb, and the breakfast provided was good.

The hotel is opposite a Tram 6 stop and a number of trolleybus and bus stops so getting into the center costs 0.50Ls and there is a tram about every 5 min. Taxis aren't needed at all, just make sure you don't catch a depo tram which doesn't complete its journey and stops one stop before the hotel.

Wasn't sure what to expect from this hotel - we picked the cheapest we could find without it being a hostel and although the reviews were reasonable I wasn't expecting great things!

However, I thought this hotel was fab for the price! It has a quirky retro style all of its own and every floor has a different colour theme - we had to stop in every floor in the lift so we could check them all out!

The rooms were a good size, clean and well presented. There was also a mini-bar in the room, which was not too badly priced. There was a bar on the top floor - stopped in quickly and it had good live music, although there was a fee for entry at the weekend which put us off going on these nights.

Breakfast (included in the price we paid) was a large buffet - hot sausage, egg, bacon, bacon rolls (latvian style), beans, toast, cold meats, cereals, bread, croissants - a huge choice and more than enough to keep us full all day.

Staff at reception were great - spoke good english, gave good advice and even gave a few smiles (staff at breakfast weren't quite so forthcoming, although not unfriendly!).

Location - about a 40 minute walk into the main centre/ old town. We chose to walk it most days - it was a great way to see the city and get a sense of where we were. However, there is also a tram stop right outside the hotel - less than a pound into the town and about a ten minute ride.

Can't think of many down points of this place - only thing is the location. If you want to be really central then this isn't the place for you - but it's cheap/ easy to get into town and the price more than makes up for this minor inconvenience!

Had a great stay!
