The Red Emperor deserves more than 3 stars, probably more like three and a half, but I'm cynical at heart and round down rather than up. You got free tea, coffee, there was plenty of fridge space if you are looking to make your own meals, the kitchen is clean and well equipped.

A little difficult to find as the entrance is through the bar but what an awesome place. My wife and stayed during February, it was cold outside but the place was warm and bags of hot water. The staff were great, the place was spotless and we were made to feel so welcome despite being twice the age of the... More

Red emperor is amazing. The staff are very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Free towels, free tea and coffee, incredibly clean and amazing showers. There are two bars here wirh cheap huge beer and a good chance to mix with as many kinds of people as you could imagine. Great location, right in old town. If in Tallinn, stay here!

I stayed here for a week, and didn't wanted to leave, there is no place like home, and this is the closest you can get! Great stuff, nice rooms, some local laws! You won't get disappointed. Highly recommended!

I had a great time here. It is located just out of the old town right next to a grocery store and an ice bar. We stayed for four nights and the staff was super helpful, kind, inclusive, and knew the city very well. The bar next door is great, beer is always cheap (Estonia is more expensive than you... More

I'm not happy of having to write this review. During the 3 days I was there with some friends, everything was great in this place, excepting one single problem that unfortunately ruined the full experience: It was not possible to sleep there. I guess we had the good luck of being there in one of the warmest days of the... More

This place is one of my favourites mainly because the staff are awesome, like mates after only just getting there. They offer various trips or for you to... More

A truly phenomenal location and a great place to be based. Cheap, friendly with a great bar and more-than-adequate rooms and beds. I would recommend this place to others and will definitely return at a later date. A special mention has to go out to the great staff at the bar. Thanks one and all!

This place is great. That pretty much sums it up. I mean, it's exhausting on your liver and your general wellbeing to have an extremely popular bar attached to your living quarters, but in reality, that's not really a negative, is it? I was pretty used to the hostel experience by the time I reached Tallinn, and while Red Emperor... More
