Taxi from airport (Eur 7.50 - 10.00) has to drop you at top of street because of restricted access. Hotel is 50m down the street and a further 50m on from the main square where there are plenty of (expensive) eating / drinking places. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Rooms on back are quiet, clean and well stocked with... More

I stayed at the Merchants House on two separate occasions in one week, so had the benefit of experiencing two different suites. One my first night I had a huge room which actually made me feel kind of uncomfortable - and the room was very oddly decorated with two large leather sofas. While the staff were amazing and friendly, I... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in May. We had a ground floor room, which was occasionally noisy from the sound of people walking past outside on the stone floor, and in front of the bedroom window. Other than that we had a very pleasant stay. The room was large and comfortable, nice bathroom, pleasant and helpful staff. Breakfast was... More

For some reason I had not stayed in Merchant's House before. The location could not be more central in the Old town and rooms were surprisingly roomy and clean. Had a great sleep in a room by the courtyard, no disturbance whatsoever, even though it's in the heart of the tourist area. Breakfast was just OK. It is served to... More

Just spent 3 nights staying at the Merchant's House Hotel. Have been in Tallinn before on business but this first time on a holiday break and wanted somewhere central. The staff were lovely, the room spacious, clean, comfortable, tastefull decor and a very comfortable bed. Overall I'd say this is a great place to stay in the old city centre... More

This hotel is in Old Town in a small very old building. The staff at reception are really nice, friendly and effective. I had a room upstairs across the old courtyard. The room was a bit too luminous for me but otherwise OK. WiFi was good. TV set is a bit old but channel selection is fine. Bathroom is big... More

My girlfriend and me really enjoyed our stay at Merchants House Hotel. Maybe it was the fact that it was low tourist season but we were treated really well. We were upgraded to a really romantic suite so that was fantastic. The staff were very friendly and were helpful in recommending places to visit and restaurants to eat at. The... More

This was a romantic gettaway for us, so I wanted something a bit nicer then my usuall "how cheap am I willing to live". This hotell won mostly because it was in the Old Town, and because the pics from the bathrooms had a tub. And I really wanted a tub. The room was nice, we just had the standard,... More

We stayed here as a couple the weekend of the 20th feb 2015. The hotel is in a great location next to the square. All the sights are within easy walking distance. Our room was upstairs across a courtyard and was really comfortable. The bed was comfy, spotlessly clean rooms and with all the amenities you could want. Mini bar,... More

The Merchants House Hotel is a must for those visiting Estonia. Tallinn the capital and here is the most northern of the Baltics. Within easy reach from the Airport via taxi or bus. Upon entering small reception with the biggest warm welcome. Off the reception area is a bar great selections of drinks cocktails. Nice blue lighting seating area. Downstairs... More
