“Good budget hotel”
Reviewed 27 November 2013

This hotel is quite new, and has some great advantages: a morning sauna (costs to use it after a certain time in day), a gym room, breakfast included and powerful wifi.
The decor is the typical for these kind of chains that the Tallink hotels are, and is sufficient for a casual business stay. The hotel also has a restaurant that by Riga standards is supposed to be quite good, as well as a spa.
As for drawbacks there are a few things that could need improvement: one cannot switch off the air-conditioner entirely, only on low or high intensity.
In combination with the fact that I needed to ask for the reception to open my window, this works badly for me who is highly affected by the dryness that air-conditioner adds to the air.
Also the bed was of a low standard, and there was no proper reading light by the bedside tables, only two lamps whose purpose only served as decor.
The bathroom has no shampoo or body lotion or any other treats, and the water does not drain properly in the shower. The floor tiles in the shower also look somewhat dirty, due to the off-white style of the tiles.
Also the TV has only two international channels.
I would say that this is the hotel for the ones who go for a lonely business stay and need to work and are dependent on a powerful wifi and a clean, fresh looking room. It doesn't invite to romance. I wouldn't pay more than 50 euro for this, as there are many other hotels for which you pay 60 + in Riga that offers that extra touch of comfort.

The hotel is beautifully decorated and modern. The bedroom and toillet were nice as well. The location is fine, just a few minutes walk from the main places. The breakfast was also good.
The receptionist suggested us a nice restaurant.
The only thing that I missed was a smile, which always help us to feel at home :)

A just 1 night stay for business in Riga and in that hotel as well.
A great and also modern hotel close to the Riga Center (10-15' minutes by feet, about). Unfortunately, that area is closest the train station too (and the related traffic): so, the roads looks dark and dirty, and definitively you don't seem to walk confident and safe around.
The rooms are sufficiently large, quite and clean; the staff is professional and efficient as well.
Not too large (but good) brekfast buffet.
The price is rightly adequate to the value at all.
It's so simply a mid-quality hotel, much better for budget than business travellers.

A large hotel, reasonably priced. Reception staff and the bar staff friendly and efficient. The bedroom was very smartly fitted out and clean. The view from the bedroom window was an ugly concrete block, but then I was only there at night and the curtains were draw so was not an issue for me. The hotel is 10 - 15 minutes walk from the old town (though walking back later in the evening is not as pleasant due to the train and minbus station tending to draw less savoury types). Riga as a whole appears more worn and tired than on my last trip with a plague of graffiti in the area doing nothing to help that tired image.

Spent 3 nights here on business. The hotel is a large, modern building and is a convenient but very busy, urban part of Riga. However, a 15 minute walk will get you in to the old city. My room was clean, large and very comfortable but quite gloomy as it overlooked a narrow street. Breakfast was good. There are many better hotels in Riga but this offers good value and is perfectly OK.

I can name this hotel as my favourite one in Riga. I stayed here already few times while business trip and conference. I find rooms interior solid, cozy and modern. Beds are very comfortable, so Your nice sleep is guaranteed. Swedish breakfast is also good.
Hotel is located close to station, Stockman shopping center . It has underground parking, where You get by tight car lift (5 m x 2.3 m). Also ground parking is available close to the hotel, just on the corner street. Unfortunately parking is quite expensive.
Hotel is highly recommended for old town lovers.

Room Tip: Some rooms windows dont have nice view from it, so in case it is important, pls consider to ask for...

Probably the best hotel for this price in Riga. Location is just perfect. Right next to minibus station (u can go to Jurmala/Aquapark using them), train station and bus station. Old town, several city plaza and parks all in 5 min walking.

Hotel is modern. Rooms are clean and cozy. Pillows and blanker are just excellent. No noise at all. Breakfast is almost perfect.
