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.
"Spacious room with best views of the main churches"
Comfy, friendly hotel. Nice large rooms. Hotel restaurant has great food and recommended on many restaurant review sites. Right in Old Town and close to many of the top tourist sites, but cobbled streets through most of the Old Town keep it quiet at night.
This is a true boutique hotel. The styling is very well done. The main entrance is quite small, so don't expect much there. There is small seating are next to the front desk. The staff is very helpful. The rooms are quite nice. The breakfast is extremely well done. And if you want to stay in the old city, this is a great choice.

Best location in Riga, overlooking the Freedom Monument and easy access to Old Town, opera, restaurants. The service was excellent and the breakfast, best in Riga. The hotel has recently redecorated the reception area in warm, light colors.
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.
