Riga is a beautiful, historical city. And it’s also an affordable European capital. For the price of a dorm bed in Paris, London or Amsterdam in Riga you can already get a hotel room. For about 40 – 60 EUR a night in Riga you can get a nice hotel room. But 100 – 120 EUR in Riga buys you a fancy double room in most of the best hotels in Riga, mostly very close to the city center or even in the old  town.

Whether it’s an inexpensive room for your week-long stay in Riga with a family or you want to splurge a bit going on a luxurious and relaxing weekend getaway, Riga has it all. And the choice is very wide. To make things easier for you I went to booking.com, filtered out all the best hotels in Riga, both cheap and luxury. And then I went through this list to choose best of the best, taking into account user rating, reviews and location of the hotel.

And here is the result! With cheap and mid-range hotels first, and luxury hotels – at the end of the article.

Price: Double room starts at 30 EUR

Located in the center of Riga, just 100 meters away from the famous Alberta street, Mosaic Hotel is a great choice for everyone, who doesn’t want to overpay. Riga Old Town is 10 minute walk away.

Rooms at Mosaic Hotel are simple, yet stylish and beautifully decorated. And also perfectly clean, as we can judge from the user reviews online, which isn’t less important. Note, that some of the cheapest rooms don’t have an attached bathroom and toilet, meaning that you will be sharing them with some other guests. In the common area there is a TV, microwave, electric kettle, sink, fridge and few tables. Free Wi-Fi is available in all rooms.

Single, double, twin and triple rooms are available.

Located in the heart of the Riga Old Town Hotel Radi Un Draugi is a great example of how affordable are also the best hotels in Riga.  It’s a 4-star hotel with an average guest rating close to 9/10 (on booking.com).

Well, ok, rest of the hotels in this list are also about the same as well rated. Why to stay in the Riga Old Town? It’s the most central part of Riga and, in my opinion, also the most beautiful.

Each one of the rooms at the Hotel Radi Un Draugi has tea and coffee making facilities, safe, TV and modern bathroom with a hairdryer. Free Wi-Fi is available in every room. Buffet breakfast is included in the price. And it’s being served in the hotel’s restaurant. The hotel also features a lounge room and a cafe – bar, serving a variety of cocktails.
