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.
