Riga

Sitting on the wide and slow Daugava river in the heart of the Baltics, Riga is the capital of Latvia and has the feel of a city that is just coming in from "the cold" of communism. A pretty historic centre mixes a little uneasily with concrete municipal buildings and Soviet-designed transport.

The floors seemed to be very sticky and the 3 flights of stairs were no fun, especially with bags but overall I had a positive stay. ... more

    up warm. Halfway to Riga we found a really nice spot for lunch and took it easy there for a good two hours to ensure we arrived in Riga when our host Igor had finished work. Igor guided us to his parent's aparment (Alex and Jana) where we showered before heading out onto the town. Riga was very quiet, but we ...

    all under €10. It's great. We then said goodbye to Sigulda and headed for Riga. Again the roads weren't great, but at least they were paved. Coming into Riga was like coming into a city in Asia - very run ...

If you're looking for a budget accommodation, this is a pretty good option especially if you are coming back to the Guesthouse only to sleep and wash up.

Good value for your money! Even though it is a little bit far you can easily catch the tram and it takes you almost to the doorsteps :) I highly recommend the DODO! It was also very quiet, slept tight
