Located across the street from Viru Center this is a good place to stay if you want to do some shopping and go take a stroll in the Old Town. The staff is very helpful and friendly which make up for somewhat average rooms with wall to wall carpeting and air conditioning that is trying hard to keep rooms cool... More

This hotel is in a very central location, convenient for the old town and for buses to get to other areas. I was very pleased with my room, which was modern, clean and quite spacious. The bed was comfortable, and though the view over the car park was not the best, there was no noise from the street at night.... More

Welcoming staff, high expectations then everything disappoints. Rooms very cramped with very narrow beds. Nothing works ... Bar supposed to be open until 2am then we are refused even coffee at 1230 and are told to visit a petrol station to get some! Sauna booked in advanced then it transpired no one could be bothered to turn it on! Breakfast... More

This hotel has 4 stars rating. Then i expect good service. The service was not up to expectations. I asked if they had whipped cream to the pancakes at the somewhat low quality breakfeast and the waitress was not so responsive or friendly. I was also expecting a double bed in the room (as a couple) but they said they... More

Dear Jakob, Thank you for your feedback, we will definitely use it to strive towards better service next time we have the chance to accommodate you again. Whipped cream is not in the menu, but we definitely can do better with making exceptions. Our restaurant manager will have a talk with our breakfast staff. The comment concerning our rooms and...

Tallin's old town is really lovely, so lovely as Carcassonne in France or Obidos in Portugal. This hotel is very near to the old town but unfortunately I can not consider it a good accomodation option. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the food is good specially the breakfast but the problem are the rooms. They are not confortable,... More

This hotel is situated in former house of services, which is very interesting history (supported by pictures in lobby). A lot of the room equipment date back to those days, so seem quite "vintage". The room doors are a bit chipped. The floor in the shower is leveled (not gravited to the drain), so when taking the shower you flood... More

The hotel needs redecoration and refurnishing. The bathroom was old fashioned. It was an agony to take a shower. The heating system did not work and the room was very cold. The breakfast was poor. There was always one person working at the reception and it usually took us 10-15 minutes just to hear a yes or no for an... More

The rooms are a bit claustrophobic, with no option for fresh air. I requested an allergen-free room and was provided one immediately. There's no gym, though I guess that's not an issue in Tallinn, where even downtown is good enough to run without much interruption. Breakfast is satisfactory, coffee always fresh. Old town and main stops of city-tour are within... More

This was a decent hotel for a overnight stay. Location close to the ole town was perfect. Breakfast was plentiful and hotel overall clean. Room was very small and basic. We got enough value for money.

The main advantage of this hotel is its location. It´s within walking distance from the ferries, tram lines and the Old Town. Close by is also the large Viru shopping center. The hotel is quite recent, but that is difficult to believe once you leave the lobby. The rooms are drab, a bit crowded with furniture, and the bathrooms adequate... More
