What can you say about a hotel that clearly just caters for large groups of lads on stags? I'll tell you. It's basic, noisy and in a rough part of town. However, it is clean and the beds just about qualify for sleeping in. If you're not on a stag do and you end up here I would recommend a...

The hotel is good if you're looking for a cheap place to stay. However, the beds are extremely uncomfortable and the breakfast is also not worth the price. The area is scruffy and wouldn't walk around at night time. Also no air conditioning so the room was very stuffy and it was hard to sleep at night.

Great hotel, very clean and good location. Perfect for a low budget in Riga. The tram station is just in front of the hotel entrance, easy to join the center. The breakfast is good even if the room is not well decorated (sad colours).

Rooms: The rooms where small and not soundproof at all. We got woken up every night by our neighbors who either argued loudly or made up after arguing – loudly. We could even follow their conversation if they just talked normally. The beds were okay, but the bathroom was very small and the toiletpaper dispenser only lets you pull out...

The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean. It was lovely quiet and peaceful. The breakfast was good. If you rather spend your money on something else than an expensive hotel this is a brilliant choice. Would definitely come again : )

Dodo hotel is located 2 km outside Riga city centre. But literary outside the hotel is a tram stop which makes the location so much better. The tram ride is 12 min to the city centre and the ticket is 2€ if you buy it from the driver. The hotel is build 2008 and it still feels "new". Rooms are...

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...

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.
