Situated by the harbor, the hotel is within walking distance of both The Old Town, and the shopping areas of Tallinn. The walk is about 10 to 15 min, and passing some of the harbor-area it is not the worst trip. The breakfast buffet is ok, considering the price, and the room is comfortable to spend the night in.

The hotel's prices are adequate for its offered services and rooms. It's located in the city center, which is a huge advantage. However, the service was rather average - we didn't get a parking for our car (as it has always been there). Also, in the middle of night a drunk on the street started screaming & beating himself in... More

This was a nice basic hotel for one night's stay. Price was good and breakfast tasty. It was a nice that we got two connecting rooms for our group. Co lours of rooms were bit weird and bright, but it didn't bother us too much. Some noises from other rooms were heard, but nothing too loud.

City Portus hotel is a great choice for those about to travel with the ferry to Helsinki. It stands a few steps from the D Terminal Building and upper floors have great view to the harbor and the vessels. Our (twin) room (no double room available) was on the 4th floor, it was spacious enough, clean and nicely decorated. It... More

I chose this hotel as I wanted to stay somewhere near to the ferry terminal and away from the tourist centre. On the positive side: cheap, fairly clean, good sized bathroom with wet room, built in hairdryer, storage unit for clothes, desk and chair, safe storage in reception, helpful reception staff, good wifi, excellent tavern a minute away, lots of...

Very clean and well maintained for the price. Breakfast was adequate, a buffet as usual for hotels in this part of the world. As it's in the port area services are a little skimpy but there are a couple of adequate restaurants and bars around there, and the Old Town is only a short walk away. There are plenty of... More
