brand new hotel, but a bit too simple.... a hair drier will be nice to have.... not saying about iron..... Not very suitable for business travellers.

August 2007

Before I went to Riga I read some customer reviews of Hotel Skanste which said it was difficult to find and recommended taking a taxi upon arriving the first time. I asked a few taxi drivers the cost of a taxi to the hotel from the city centre and most quoted around 20 Lats (£20) - so we decided to use public transport. The number 11 bus costs just 30p and goes up Valdemara iela. Get off at Hanzas iela and the hotel is 10 minutes walk - up Hanzas, right down Vesetas iela, left up Sporta iela and the hotel is on the left. The buses were punctual and took about 5 minutes but we usually walked, which took 20 minutes. So don't be put off if you think this hotel is out of town.

The hotel was as expected, you won't find anything extraordinary here but it represented value for money. Like the old addage - you get what you pay for!

Mixed reception from staff ranges from cheerful to quite grumpy and blunt remarks. Breakfast was a bit limited.
