Actually, I would say it was one of the best times I have had as backpacker. Besides... More

The old town location means it's close to many cool... More

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.

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!
