Basic good hotel at Tallinn harbor across the Tallink D terminal. The facilities are good. Clean room, big bathroom, rather large rooms with table, few beds and the smallest tv's I have ever seen in hotel, but your not in Tallinn to watch tv anyway :) The main problem however during this summers extremely hot weather was that there was...

I booked this hotel for one night following a tour through Scandinavia. The staff were very helpful at my check in, and upgraded me to a larger room on the ground floor (very convenient as I was lugging a large backpack around!) The room itself was spacious, with a large comfortable bed, lots of room for luggage, and a decent... More

I booked to stay at the City Hotel Portus twice (my first two nights in Tallinn and then, my last 2). I went for a few days to Saaremaa Island in between. I selected this hotel based on the price and also it had received good reviews overall. The rooms are not bad and breakfast is included in the room... More

The hotel is located just beside Terminal D of Tallink ferries to Helsinki and offers nice and cleaned rooms, with a lot of space for your luggages and belongings. To reach Old town is only a 15 minutes walk and, if you don't love walking, there is a bus (line 2) going to center. Parking slots are enough and for... More

My husband and I went to Tallinn to celebrate our Ruby Wedding Anniversary and just wanted somewhere reasonable and this hotel fit the bill. We were very close to the ferry but it was extremely quiet. The hotel was very clean, both bedding and bathroom were spotless. The breakfast was ok, certainly plenty to eat and for what we paid,...

This hotel is situated across the road from the shipping terminal and is very busy with patronage from the ferries and ships from Denmark etc. Rooms are nice and clean, except the bathroom flooded with extended showering and made it dangerous to walk on. Convenient location not too far from the old town, and prices were not too bad for... More

Located at the harbour, so a fair walk to the Old Town.. bit there is a bus stop just outside (No 2, going to the centre and the airport!) Basic rooms, all you could need. Corridors feel like Cell Block H! Massive numbers on the door, so drunk Nordics can find their room early hours..Breakfast really good and service outstanding!... More

Hotel located across the street from Dterminal of Tallink ferry that can take you to Finland or some other places. Its also pretty quite and not expensive-those are all good points. You have to walk to old town to get to all attractions, depending on a weather it might be not the best location. Breakfast, even though its included, might... More
