Hotel offers some free parking options near it's premises, however, these places are on first come, first serve basis, and are rather few, so it is a good idea to look for other options.
If you don't mind paying a few euros, it is possible to park your car within RISEBA/RTU parkin lot on Meža street 1a, check Google Maps. Alternatively, you can also park your car in of the streets near Meža street for free.
It is possible to reserve a room in the Park Inn by Radisson Riga Valdemara. City center is a few kilometers away from the hotel, however, there are other (cheaper) options nearby as well, for example, Bellevue Park Hotel.
We recommend using the BalticTaxi cab company (Green taxis), who are this years official transport partners for DevOpsDays Riga.
Other trusted taxi providers are Taxify (via app) and RedCab
WARNING: Always check the prices of the cab, that are displayed on the passengers door. This does not apply to Baltic Taxi (or, for example, Taxify), however, a lot of third-party taxi providers may wish to charge double or triple the cost if you wish to get a taxi from Riga airport.
There are multitude of ways, how you can get to the venue. The most safest/and or easiest, would be to use the taxi. We don't have Uber in Riga, however, we have the next best thing - Taxify, an application that lets you order taxis from anywhere to anywhere. Alternatively, from airport you can use also Baltic Taxi taxis, and, if you give them the secret code "DevOpsDays Riga", you'll also get 10% off from your bill.
You can easily take the public transport to get to the venue. From the Riga international airport, bus no. 22 "Abrenes iela" will get you almost directly to the hotel. You can buy your ticket in advance in either an e-ticket machine, that is located in public transport stop, or in virtually any "Narvesen" kiosk. Once ticket costs 1,15 EUR. Before you go, check out directions in Google Maps.
You can buy a ticket using either cash or debit/credit cards via the help of such machines that are located in various public transport stops.
Find the bus no. 22 "Abrenes iela" - once you get out of the airport, go straight trough the parking lot, and you should see the white/blue buses (or at least the bus stop)
Remember to scan/validate your ticket. Failure to do so may result in penalty of up to 30 EUR.
Don't worry! If you accidentally forget to buy your ticket, you can also buy it directly from the bus driver, but you will need to have cash, and for your forgetfulness, you will need to pay 2 EUR, instead of 1,15 EUR, what you'd normally pay.
Just remember that if you "accidentally" forget to buy a ticket and try to ride for free, you can incur a penalty of up to 30 EUR
In the monitors, watch for stop "Slokas iela"- that is the one you'll need to get off at.
Exit at Slokas street and continue walking straight, cross the road and turn left.
You should see the hotel. Congrats, you are almost there.
There are a lot of options how you can get to venue from the city center. Check out Google Maps, and try to find the route best suited to your current location. Our recommendation would probably be to use the 1st or the 5th tram and get off at Kalnciema street, but there are other options available as well, for example, 9th trolleybus.
