Surrounded by neglected housing estates on the outskirts of Riga, the Sailor Hotel may not be the ideal hotel for everyone, but if you don’t mind a lengthy tram ride and you want to save loads of money on accommodation, then look no further. Completely renovated in 2004, its simple rooms offer cable TV and private bathrooms and extras such as phone and free wi-fi. A sauna is also available as well as free parking. Take trams N°5 or 9 from Aspazijas to the Allažu iela stop. Walk down Allažu and make a right on Sofijas.
