    « Good hotel near the airport! »

    I stayed in this hotel only for a night using it as a B&B since it's near the Riga airport and useful if you need to take a flight early in the morning. The modern rooms are large, suitable for two adults. Toilets in the rooms are equipped with different accessories as hairdryer or different towels. Talking about the staff, they were gentle and kind welcoming us very late in the evening. As requested during the check-in, the staff prepared us the breakfast very early in the morning (also if the kitchen was not open) and this was very appreciate. The hotel offers a big car park in front of it. The structure is not near the city: it's located about 10 km out from the city - airport direction.

    « Simple yet enjoyable »

    The primary advantage of this hotel is proximity to the airport. It's a matter of minutes by car or just two stops away by bus. Moderate pricing. Rooms are simple yet spacious while beds are just great. Smaller details follow the style of simplistic American motels which includes windows, plumbing, lamps, etc. Excellent staff, always friendly, very polite and willing to help. Effective heating. Free speedy wifi with strong signal and numerous access points throughout the premises. Minor inconvenience with hot water which takes a minute to actually get hot. Simple breakfasts offer eggs, sausages, cereals, cheese, bread, coffee, juice, yogurt, some tomatoes and cucumbers. Sauna for an extra fee. Transfer to and from the airport cost 5 Euro. A shopping center 2 stops away by bus. Pleasant overall expression regardless simplicity. I just loved those beds! Ideal between the flights for a nightly stayover or longer layovers. Okay for staying a few days if you don't mind half an hour trip to the city centre. Superior Double on the pictures.

    « Great place to stay »

    I stayed for a number of nights here and found it great. The staff were very helpful and its located perfect to head in any direction. The room was to a very high standard and slept great. The breakfast was typical and local.

    « One of the best deals in Riga »

    This hotel is slightly off the beaten path of the main sights in Riga and Old Town Riga, but it's right next to the airport and very well run with a complimentary breakfast that can be taken along on your flight. The hotel is very clean and the Canadian owner that we met during our stay took personal concern and paid attention to the food quality in the restaurant. Nice, quiet setting and we always stay there the night before our return flight and will continue to do so in the future.

    « Best choice for transit passengers »

    I stayed at hotel only one night for waiting morning flight to Reykjavik. Hotel is situated near airport, only two stops by bus No 22. If you have big baggage it is possible to call for transfer for 5 Euros. The girl at reception was very helpful, she was smiling and answer all my questions. Room are quiet, clean. there is no air conditioner but it is possible to open window to have fresh air. Wi fi is good. I had a time and I went by bus to big mall "Spice", only few stops. There are good restaurants with Latvian cuisine. Breakfast is very good. I like this hotel.

    « Riga Latvia »

    The hotel is not in the main city but a short ride away. There is a mall that would be possible to walk to with a overhead walk area over the highway. They had areas outside to sit and relax. We arrived there in the morning before our room was ready but they were great about holding our luggage so that we could go into Riga and explore. Everyone went out of their way to be helpful. Riga is a wonderful city and there are not a lot of tourists so it's a great place to visit.

    « Organised but no wow factor airport hotel »

    One night here before an early morning flight. Went in to town for dinner which Im sure was the best option.The negatives are the tired decor and very old fashioned room furniture and fittings. I would go as far as to say, horrible. The positives the military precision at reception sorting out airport shuttle timings and breakfast packed lunch, the convenience for the airport and a very good value price.

    « Nice hotel, good food. »

    Room was a good standard with comfortable bed, well equipped. The bathroom was ok, with a shower cubicle. The restaurant/bar was very quiet, in fact no one was there. However the service and food was excellent and well worth trying. All in all, a decent hotel that I would consider using again in the future.

    « Awful night »

    It's no sound insulation on the doors of the room no. 109 doors. You can see just 5mm space around the doors. And of course also hear everything outside. And you will be waked up by the noises not when you was expected... Really will not return there. Not expected from Best Western.

    « In and out stay »

    Staff was friendly and helpful. Besr part of the stay. The room was okay. Bed was hard...not my style. Shower pressure is great. The noise down the halls were by far the worse. Do not stay near an elevator. There is a computer to use for free with wifi and a bus will take you to the airport for 5 euros.

    « Overall experience »

    A good hotel with friendly and professional staff. Restaurant serves an acceptable variety of dishes - reasonably sized portions - and my room was clean and roomy. WI-Fi access easy and adequate for moderate use.

    Helpful staff, decent food, comfortable bed, clean room and close to the airport. Excellent value for money with good facilities. All in all a good choice for a business trip to Riga. Will be using again.

    « Very Good for airport business »

    I needed a hotel in Riga near the airport to change flights, and the Best Western was a very good choice. There is an airport shuttle for only 5 Euros and they can pick you up from the airport. It was a good thing in late night. The hotel was very easy to check in and things were all in order and they were very cordial. The room for me was a pleasant surprise. A very clean bathroom. A nice and calm room and the furniture was new. Moreover, it was really spacious by European standards. In fact it can be considered spacious by North American standards. The wifi was also free and fast. May be the only downside was the mattress which was soft. Not a good thing for the back. All in all it is a nice hotel.

    « Adequate hotel near airport »

    Fine for an overnight stay. Convenient airport shuttle, but NOT free as advertised. Room was clean, bed was comfortable (for one person). But towels were very thin. Breakfast was adequate and filling. Staff was friendly.

    « Not bad for airport hotel. »

    Breakfast was very good. Staff was accommodating for our early departure. Dinner was also very good and reasonable. Nice fast shuttle to the airport in the morning. Front desk and kitchen staff were helpful with a smile. Their English was impressive.

    « Overnight stay between flights »

    I was flying with some colleagues, and we had a flight connection of 6 hours at Riga's airport. we book this hotel to sleep over during the night. we've arrived the hotel at midnight. The hotel is 5 minutes from the airport . The young lady at the front desk was extremely polite. The room was nice , and clean. They have free Wi-Fi at the hotel. Our order included breakfast that start on 07:30. However we had to leave the hotel at 05:30 in the morning, so we had to skip breakfast. HOWEVER - when we went down to check-out , we were invited for a breakfast that was prepared for us , even though it was early. this was a very nice surprise.

    « No value for money! »

    Be aware that the size of bed, 158cm wide; in a double room makes it impossoble to sleep. A rooom with a bed 158 cm wide is NOT a double room for two "ordinary" travellers!. My experience is that a doubel room have - at least- a King size bed!

    « quite place close to airport »

    Stay in this hotel was nice experience on my trip to Latvia. Located very close to airport is a good choice if you want to avoid traffic jams when rushing to catch a flight. Menu in restaurant is not wide, but what we eat was good and service too. Good Internet connection in rooms and nice/helpful staff. If I go to Riga again I will choose this hotel.
