I would firstly like to agree with other reviewers who said this hotel has bugs. I was welcomed into my room by a huge spider. I informed the receptionist and he was more than willing to change my room, but couldn't because there were no alternative rooms. So he simply came to my room and killed it. This bug problem...

We were a bit confused about the directions and neighborhood, but when we arrived we were delighted. It's a wonderful old neighborhood. Dodo is great value: clean rooms (small by design), courteous staff, on the tram to old town one way and the Lido the other. Breakfast included: a great place and cheap.

The location is a bit away from center so that makes the price to be cheaper, but also it was a very short and cheap trip to Old Riga with tram. With taxi it would be also very cheap. The room was nicely designed. Staff was very helpful and had much knowledge about tourist attractions and could answer every of... More

Great little hotel. Staff were very helpful. Breakfast was fresh and good. Hotel was very clean and rooms a decent size. It was nice to catch the tram outside the hotel with the locals going to work. You can walk to the centre from here and see how the local folk live. When in Riga..do the Dodo.

A great hotel for the budget traveler or Stag event. Location was no problem as we had busses or used cheap taxis. The rooms were clean and functional. Towels and shower gel all provided and perfect. We were quite loud as a group and drank outside the hotel with no complaints. There is an epic local shop 10 meters away... More

As a long-time budget traveller, the Dodo Hotel is my dream. In every category, I give it a five star rating. For me, it was ideal for cleanliness, location, and friendliness of the staff. The 6 Euro breakfast was a great deal with lots of choice. The neighbourhood was a bit strange, but quiet and totally safe. Walking to downtown... More

This hotel is great for a budget hotel! It is located about 10 minuets from the centre and taxis are great at getting you where you need to be and are not expensive.

I recently stayed at this ‘budget’ hotel as part of a weekend break package – I did not book it personally as I almost invariably take a DIY approach to holidays. Using any online hotel consolidator, it is quite possible to get a much better deal in the ‘old city’ as this hotel - situated in the run-down but strangely... More
