Basic 4 star hotel with a good breakfast (Fresh bread, toast, different kind of juices, Tea and coffee, meat, eggs, fresh fruits etc.). Not too pricey and great location. Worth trying and close to everything. Night club is a suicide for a 20 to 30 year olds, Hollywood is way better but might be an ok for 50+ aged people

I had a room in 18th floor and it was super! So amazing view over Tallinn city! Weather was really bad, very windy and snowing, so I hear wind noice from windows! One window was frozen! But everything else was perfect!

Loved the view over the city, especially at night time. Christmas dinner was also great. The staff is super friendly, really appreciated... More

This is a convenient hotel to stay in for a stag party or for a night-life trip to Tallinn, since it's located next to all best places to party. The hotel is pretty noisy during nights because of many drunk Finns there. It has exciting view from the top floors and very cozy window-sill to enjoy the view. The room... More

My husband and I stayed on the 22nd floor in a Standard room facing away from Old Town. I normally do not like to stay in a big hotel, but we enjoyed our week here. The room was small, but more than adequate, with parquet floors and a comfortable bed. WiFi was included, and kept us in touch with friends... More

This hotel is located in probably the best location for Tallinn. It is close to great live music, the old town is across the street, the hotel is connected to a mall , and the biggest hotspot for entertainment in the city. It is a bit pricy, but I think you get what you pay for here. I stayed for... More
