“Pleasantly surprised me”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

I had to stay at Tallink Riga because my flight to Kiev was cancelled.
Not being quite satisfied with the service of the airline, I didn't expect the hotel to be anything but descent.

I was pleasantly surprised!
The hotel is new, modern, upbeat.
The room was spacious, the staff quite helpful and the breakfast was excellent.

Definitely recommend it!

The price bit may be down to the exchange rate but this is a relatively new build hotel convenient for the old town, the train station and the central food markets ( in 5 old Zeppelin hangars behind the station - don't miss it). First class buffet breakfast included in price with wide choice although my favourite was the fish. Free Wi-fi is another plus. Owned by the same company as some of the Baltic ferries. I came in on the Stcokholm one. If I had booked the two together would have got a free coach transfer from the ferry terminal but you can pay at the terminal if not.

Room Tip: No noise issues even in a street facing 2nd floor room

Great centrally located hotel with wonderful beauty salon. All staff very friendly and service superb! Breakfast was a fantastic start to the day with smoked salmon and pancakes before heading out to explore the Old city and markets.I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anybody travelling to Riga.

We stayed at this hotel for one night. The hotel is very clean, and you could tell it was pretty new, which was nice. The rooms are fresh, spacious and clean. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom is nice and big, which for me means a lot as I am pretty picky with bathrooms... The service is OK, better than most places in Riga.

right in the middle of a frozen Riga this hotel is comfy and practical without trying to be spectacular.
reception area is big and welcoming and the bar a good standard.
room was spacious and comfortable with free WIFI and a good shower.
the real surprise was the restaurant which was excellent, very accommodating (very late arrival) and served/presented to a very high standard.

Located a 30 minute walk away from all of Rigas sights. The hotel has a central location and excellent bus connections. The bus and rail terminals are a short walk away. The park is close by! The rooms are very adequate and provide everything that a hotel of its class should. Breakfast is nice too! For what you pay - worth it.

Room Tip: as the buildings around are being refurbished, the views are not good. But hotel wise, good delivery...

Nice hotel & good service...My husband and I stayed for 2 nights in Tallink Hotel Riga, on January 2013. We was very happy and satisfied with the service especially the last day when we wanted back to the ship,they changed the bus to an exclusive car to drop us to the port.
The hotel near with the big shopping center and city...We will definitely stay here again next time when we'll go to Riga...
