Good location next to public transport station, Tallinn old town and shopping areas, nice room, free wifi and speedy service. OK, admit that this hotel is not fancy, unique or in any way interesting, but you can always trust a certain class when visiting. Worth the money.

Everything just nice. Nothing to complain. The superior room for 4 person family (children 4 and 10). Hints: 1. A small children room with Legos, building bricks, tv and small cars in the downstairs. 2. Ask the hotel's tour into KGB Museum (in English or Finnish). 3. Leave your outwear to the room when visiting Viru Keskus - the shopping... More

This is classic hotel in Tallinn. Hotel building has 20 floors and looks great 60s style. Hotel interior is in good shape and owned by Finnish Sokos Hotel chain. We got standard room from 6th floor with no special views but I think that from 10th floor and upper the views are great. Our room was quite cozy,clean and nice... More

Still excellent view to sea, whom where at Soviet time free people came to Estonia and Soviet Union to meet locals.But not only meet, but sell things which were not available for... More

Had a Junior Suite with sauna booked for 1 night on the 17th floor. Location is great, and the view from our room was nice. Sauna was small but ok for 2 adults. Reception staff was friendly and service-minded, breakfast was a very typical buffet and room service was very efficient (which was great as we were super hungry). The... More

It's a rear occasion to stay overnight in a hotel at your hometown. But this time it happened and I'm quite about it. The hotel is iconic to Estonians being the first high standard hotel built in Soviet era. There are several stories about this hotel and you may visit the KGB museum in the hotel to learn more about... More

Stayed for two nights with my family. The extra-bed was arranged upon my request. We got the old room (suddenly I knew that we were the last guests of this room - after our stay it will be closed for renovation) but it still was OK because the beds were great and everything was clean. We had a great view... More

Clean rooms, good price. Spent my New years party there. Food was good too. Nice view outside. Hotel is near movie theater. One of the best locations in city center. Definitely coming back there next year.
