We have stayed in Latvian hotels before and our experiences have not been that good.
We could not believe how low the prices were so our expectations were not high for this visit.
What a delight it was to arrive at this hotel and it was modern,clean with friendly and helpful staff. It is situated 50 meters from Jurmala's vast beach and 5 minutes walk from the main shopping centre. We were able to park our car right outside the hotel too.
The costs also included a buffet breakfast which was as good as you would find anywhere. The restaurant was very competitively priced compared to the local area.
We could easily have stayed for longer and we would definately recommend a stay at the Eiropa.

The Hotel Skanste is a basic hotel located in a quiet part of Riga. The hotel does not offer the highest standards of comfort or furnishings (I had to wait 30 seconds for the bathroom light to come on after pressing the switch) but will be adeqaute for most people. The WiFi only works on the ground floor, the breakfast is adequate but not the best I've ever had. You will need to make use of Riga's public transport system (easy and efficient, if a little crowded) to reach the hotel from the city centre. The nearest bus/trolleybus stop is about 6-7 walk from the hotel. I would definitely stay at the hotel again because the price was excellent.
The Grand Palace is conveniently located and all areas of this wonderful old city are within just a few minutes' walking distance. The staff were superb, totally focussed on making sure that my stay was enjoyable. Lovely buffet breakfast with hot dishes to order, all set in a super dining room. My room was spacious but cosy and well equipped. I was here on business and overall it was a most enjoyable stay, highly recommended.
We have just stayed at the Mann-Tess and found it to be very comfortable, nice small scale lodging with solid morning light breakfast and very helpful and friendly concierge, wait staff. It is located in the heart of Old Riga. I highly recommend it.

Good location (just a short stroll into the Old Town) and comfortable room, bed and bathroom, but what most impressed me about this hotel was the service. The staff couldn't have been happier to help out. Best example - when I left I asked for a cab, they sent the hotel van instead. Halfway to the airport the driver got a call to say the cleaners had found my passport in my room. He drove me back to the hotel where the passport was waiting for me at reception, then back to the airport. All for 10 lats (plus a tip). Loti pateicos!
