“Nice rooms, worse location”
Reviewed 11 October 2011

Stylish hotel close to city center. Great looking rooms but on the small side. Too close to the central station in my option, that end of the street isn't really likable. Two blocks further from the central station it changes into one of the most pleasant streets in Riga. The Radisson Blu Elizabetes is far better located.
Breakfast was good but the dinner was bad.
Highly recommend the BaltikBike bicycle rental to travel around the city.

Very stylish hotel. Single room was a bit small but with nice bathroom and shower was excellent. Even if hotel is centrally located, no noise from street can be heard. Breakfast has a good choice but a bit chaotic. For every single item have to get up and get it, even cutlery and coffee you have to get yourself. But once you leave table to get something, they clean it right away even if you haven't finished eating yet. However it was very enjoyable stay and would recommend it for it's location.

We stayed at the Tallink from 23 to 26 September inclusive. First impressions were good - stylish, modern and a good location. Unfortunately things went downhill from there! Our room was extremely hot on arrival, and the air conditioning didn't seem to work. We contacted Reception on three separate occasions, but nothing was done. The following day the TV gave up the ghost - again, nothing was done. The bar was extremely crowded, with only two staff on duty, so the chances of getting served were minimal. And to top it off, the vestibule outside the lift on the fourth floor had a foul smell which seemed to get worse as our stay drew to a close! But the breakfast was good...

As a frequent business traveller to Riga, I prefer this hotel more often nowdays. Yes, it's new and fresh, having nice rooms, great breakfast and good atmosphere. It's not noisy, more compact then other big business hotels in Riga.

The Tallink Riga is in a great location opposite the central train station, and along the route of airport shuttle express. You'd think it might be noisy due to this spot, but no - it's very quiet.

Staff very professional and quick, lobby is spotless and very plush with free Internet, cafe, restaurant and smoking bar. 3 Spacious lifts to take you to your floor. The room was also immaculate and smartly decorated, with a cool bathroom, LCD tv, minibar and very nice bed. No tea/coffee or much in the bathroom but a note advises you can obtain toiletries free from reception.

Free wifi was reliable and the breakfast absolutely awesome - mackerel, cod caviar, fresh fruit, omelette bar - very unusual for Europe!

My highest praise to the owners, both the hotel and city demand your attention.

The hotel is situated very close to the railway station of Riga, the station for minibusses is just around the corner. Outside hotel is very busy, inside is more quiet. Tallink hotel is a conference hotel receiving tourist groups -mainly Scaninavian- on tour. The staff is friendly and helpfull, checking in and out is fast, filling a small paper without showing passport. The reception hall is spacy and modern, the hotel has 9 floors, three elevators. The roomfloors are dark, brown/black colours, The standard rooms are small, like the bed. From window -to to be opened- you see only the other hotelrooms opposite. On room: airco, small desk, tv, minibar and wireless internet with (too) poor signal. The badroom is modern, with shower, fohn, no bathroomgarniture only a soapdispenser!
Like in more hotels, hotelpersonel knock on you roomdoor frequently. A complain about not working safedeposit was not solved in the period we stayed, even after repeating.
The breakfast is selfservice, Swedish and very good.
Walking to the old town of Riga takes 15-20 minutes.
