The hotel's location is not the most convenient - specially if compared to the wide choice of hotels located closer to the Old Tallinn. The hotel is on the main street but you need to walk blocks away to get to the Old Town. The standard rooms are very small even for typical standard rooms - like 10 square metres... More

We stayed in Tallinn for a week this February for the Simple Session BMX/skateboarding competition (and also to explore a city we'd never been to before) and this hotel was ideal for our needs. We wanted somewhere that was close to the town (especially the old town), near to bus and tram routes, wouldn't cost the earth and was comfortable... More

If you're backpacking around and need a bed - and not much else, this is fine. No A/C was huge in our July heat. Bolted window shut, so absolutely no air flow. Hated coming back to our room when all we would do is wash up and sweat. Connected to a much nicer facilitie/hotel, but felt a bit like second... More

I seemed to be the only adult guest in this hotel. All neighbouring rooms were filled with Russian children who visited each other, knocked at theirs doors, clapped their doors and talked in front of my room all night. Since the reception is in another house 150 m away, nobody could help. I did not sleep a minute. The noisy... More

City Hotel claims to be part of a new style of "unique hotels"... the only thing unique is that it's not a hotel. In fact, it's barely a dorm facility. City Hotel's owner figured they could call this place a hotel because they own a real hotel 1/4 mile down the street. When the taxi drops you off at this... More

In general the hotel is ok. Location is perfect. near old town. We paid 50 EUR per night for triple room, which is good value for money. the room was ok, but too small for 3 people. The reception is locatad 2 min walk at another hotel von Stackelberg, which is a very nice 4 star hotel. Katya at the... More

Location is good - very close to the old town. Budget hotel, but I had all what I needed - big, clean room with basic furniture, own bathroom. Good price for what is offered, and you don't pay for services what are not needed - room cleaning and towels changing every day. What I did not like - TV remote... More

This 4 star was right in the old town and very convenient. Upon check-in, we were given an option to upgrade to a larger room for a daily charge, but the room originally booked was big enough anyway. The bathroom was a decent size too, very clean and modern. The only thing I wasn’t too happy with was: - the... More

I was visiting Tallinn with two friends for a weekend and we stayed in a three bed bedroom in this hotel. Checking in and getting the key needed to be done at the Stackelberg hotel next door. Room was clean and modern looking. Three beds were ready for us which made the room seem a bit small. Television was working.... More

I stayed in the hotel in July with 2 other friends for 2 nights. Basically, we only slept there - meaning we did not have breakfast or use any services. Janne on front desk helped us with some maps and basic directions, and over all was very friendly. Her English was very good too. Room was rather small, but comfy... More
